Finding the right clothes online can be almost impossible sometimes but with the help of “Google Images” it can be turned into a fun and useful method to find what you want.
Our first step is to find a picture you like,mainly focusing on colours more so than style.
Google recognizes colour a lot better than style, Google will ask for a description to help with the style later!

First you will need to copy and paste the image URL (pictures web address) this can be easily done by hovering the cursor(mouse arrow) over the image and right clicking on your mouse.A drop down list of options will appear and one of them will say “Copy image URL” – Click on this one
Hover mouse arrow over the image
right click to get the drop down menu

[one_half_last]I HAVE AN OLD PHOTO UPLOADED/SCANNED
If it’s a printed/polaroid photo (from the 90’s) you will need to scan it into your computer. I’m afraid I can’t help this one as all scanners are different
If it’s a digital photo upload it to your computer
Scan/upload a picture to your computer[/one_half_last]
Every body will begin from this page here,”Google Images“.In your own window click on the little camera icon highlighted in red here after you have uploaded or copied your image/photo.
Click search and Google will search all of its websites for that particular image. I used one of our own hoodies – Baja Hoodie, but you can do it with anything, a dress, zip hoodie, pants etc.
Google also asks you to describe the image, we described our hoodie as a “vintage surfer hoodie”
Google Gave us other possible “vintage surfer hoodies” in similar colour.
You will notice that the more descriptive you are the better the results, “sleeveless vintage . . . . “
This can generally work with any picture, for example a flower you like.
the dress or hoodie in the colour of that particular flower
In this case we got an image of a red flower and described it as a dress
Google gave us loads of images for – Red dresses
The more descriptive you are the better your success, I hope this helps you find what you are looking for!
