I want to continue previous topic by adding some words and phrases that I`m sure ladies will appreciate!

So, let`s get started with the types of the form of clothes:

無地 [muzi] - plain

柄 [gara] - patern

しま [shima] - stripped

ゆるい [yurui] - loose (about a skirt)

Couple phrases that will help you during shopping:

似合う [niau] - to look good on someone; ex: 黒がよくお似合いです。 [kuro ga yoku onioidesu] - Black suites you well.

気に入る [ki ni iru] - to take a fancy to..; note --> お気に入り [o ki ni iri] - one`s favorite; ex:
