This checklist shows what to watch out for when you write a text:
A question of style
How would you talk to your friends about a piece of clothing that looks especially good on you? Emotional, descriptive and maybe a bit flowery – Exactly as in many fashion texts. A bit of subjectivity and a certain creative flair provide fashion texts with an emotional, textual image of much sought-after garments. Of course, it’s important to speak the “lingo” of your target audience. You will probably write about “cool, “stylish” or “comfortable” garments in a shop for young fashion rather than in an online shop that mainly sells adult fashion. This type of shop would demand a different, more sophisticated language. Example: “The floral pattern emphasizes the elegant design of the wraparound dress”. Whether you use direct speech in your text or not depends on the clients’ specifications.
Please do not forget: The amount of detail in the product description depends on the respective task and the work instructions!
How do you put it into practice? Here is an example:
