Classification of clothing according to articles, sections and seasons

Arriving at a clothing store and knowing how to say a certain section of garments can speed up – and a lot – the task of shopping. Imagine arriving at a department store in the US and not knowing how to say “children’s section”, for example?

These stores are often huge and it can take forever to find the section you want. Furthermore, even in smaller stores, knowing exactly what you want can allow salespeople and employees to resolve their queries as soon as possible.

Therefore, we have prepared for you a list of translations from English to Portuguese so that you know what each term means and, thus, be able to use them in your next purchases outside Brazil!
