Fashion categorization 2: About checked shirts, plaid blouses and other stumbling blocks
The second blog article about fashion categorization deals with possible stumbling blocks that you might encounter while working on the tasks.
Stumbling block 1: Women’s and men’s categories
In some cases it seems obvious what is meant. For example: The item is a checked top with long sleeves and a button-down front: It has to be a checked shirt!
When you go through the category tree you will notice that there is a difference between Shirts (for men) and Blouses (for women). Therefore be sure to check whether it is a women’s or a men’s item. Checked shirts and lumberjack shirts are men’s items; plaid blouses are for women only.
Stumbling block 2: Strap forms in tops
In women’s tops it is essential to pay attention to the form of the strap because tops with narrow straps are not always spaghetti tops.
Tank top: Tank tops have wider straps than spaghetti tops, but the shoulders are still visible.
Halter neck top: The top has (narrow) straps that are tied together at the neck or are linked with a neck ornament.
Special case HALTER dresses: The categorization for dresses is not quite so strict. In this case it makes no difference whether the dress has spaghetti straps or somewhat wider straps – both forms belong in the Halter dress category. However please note that there is a further category for dresses that have their straps in halter neck form.
Stumbling block 3: Length
From the width of the straps to the length of the garment…
A long top / long sweater belongs in the respective category only if it is longer length and covers the wearer’s hips and buttocks. Tops that are shorter do not belong in these categories.
