By Theo Thimou,

What a few days it’s been for Amazon…

First the e-commerce giant rocked the grocery world on June 16 with news of its intent to take over Whole Foods.

And now, ladies and gentlemen, the company wants to dress you up in its love with a new test program for fashion fans.

If you hate trekking out to the store for clothes, you’re going to love this: You’ll get to try outfits on in the comfort of your own home before you commit to buying them. And you can return what you don’t want for free!

Amazon plots next move into fashion

The company run by CEO Jeff Bezos is currently beta testing a new program called Prime Wardrobe.

The plan is to simplify the clothes shopping process for Prime members by letting them go online to pick out three or more outfits that they’re interested in trying on.

Then when the clothes arrives, you get to keep the threads for seven days to try them on and decide if you like them.

Buy three or four of the items and you’ll get a 10% discount. If you buy five or more, you’ll get a 20% discount!

Prime Wardrobe offers clothing, shoes and accessories for men, women and children.

For the items you don’t want to buy, simply use the box that your order came in — along with the pre-paid label that was included  — and ship them back to Amazon via UPS. You can also schedule free pick-up of the return box at your home address for no additional charge.

So far, names like Calvin Klein, Levi’s, Adidas, Timex, Carter’s, Theory, Hugo Boss, Lacoste, J Brand, Milly and Parker are featured brands on Prime Wardrobe.

The best part is that there are no extra fees to use Prime Wardrobe. When this program moves out of beta, it will be included as part of your annual Prime membership fee.
