As clothing has returned to shopping rails and online shopping carts, many are looking forward to enjoying the feel of new clothing for the first time since perhaps mid-March. 

And you have to admit, the winter threads that have been availed for us to shop are rather appealing to both the eye and the wallet. I mean, who doesn't want to shop this sweater from the Pringle of Scotland x H&M collaboration, for just R379?  

As long as we're all remembering to go about our shopping activities - online or in store - with extra caution. Beyond wearing masks, this also entails not trying clothes and shoes on when shopping at brick-and-mortar clothing outlets.
