For the customization needs, we’ve packed the theme with Elementor, a favorite builder of many WordPressers.
To boost Elementor’s features, we’ve also packed a few premium addons for Elementor that are aimed at particular tasks: building a shop menu, creating promo banners, product sliders and more.

- Wishlist integration for your e-store.
How you can customize your Laveri store WordPress template
Let’s say there are several ways you can customize Laveri. First, for rather global, across-the-site changes, you refer to the WordPress Customizer settings.
For example, here are major things offered as editable via Customizer:
- Menus & widgets (for example, add social icons, a newsletter subscription box, or any other functionality to the footer)
- Choose a default blog layout
- Customize the look of your store powered by WooCommerce.
We’ve integrated several WooCommerce features responsible for the look of your store into the WordPress Customizer. For example, you can choose either a one-column or classic single product gallery layouts.
In a one-column layout, product images are huge and immersive, perfect for viewing details:
Opting for the classic product view, you can output product images in a classic grid view:
Via Customizer, you can also personalize functional icons your customers see in a header: feel free to include shopping cart, search, contacts, wishlist and account icons.
Customize the clothing store WP website with Elementor
We did a lot of ‘sewing’ work for Laveri – it comes with many hand-crafted widgets and content blocks specifically for e-stores that you personalize in a visual mode. Let’s get down to a few of them.
The full-screen homepage slider is built with Advanced Slider, the widget by the Stratum addon for Elementor – you can customize the text, buttons and images in each slide.
Featured store categories
This is a custom widget created specifically for Laveri – here you can feature the main categories in style, using tiny subtitles that are visible on hover.
Another Elementor widget we created exclusively for this clothing store WooCommerce theme. It allows you to showcase bestsellers and help shoppers navigate through them easily. Shoppes can hover over a product and either see options or add it to the cart directly from this slider.
A very simple but immersive slider that looks like an animated gallery – a default slider by Elementor you can customize in a few clicks.
There is no denying it – Instagram has become part of the daily routine of clothing stores. Laveri gives you an easy way to connect your Instagram to the store in a click and boost the base of your followers.
You can also play with the Instagram gallery styling, change the number of columns, spacing, etc.
The footer section is big enough for putting any widget inside it, whether it’s an icon, contact details, social icons, or anything else. You can customize them via the Widgets area and WordPress Customizer.
If you want to go beyond the regular navigation menu, you are free to work with Stratum’s Mega Menu addon for Elementor we’ve packed at no extra cost with Laveri. It allows you to output any Elementor widget into the submenu: shop products, banners, images, sliders and more.
You can also boost up the regular menu with icons, color highlights, et
On the Laveri demo, you can also find many useful Elementor widgets on the inner pages. For example, you can showcase your latest blog news on any page thanks to the Advanced Posts widget by Stratum or a regular slider.
Thanks to the handcrafted Icons list widget we developed exclusively for Laveri, you can list your stores or departments in a compact and organized way.
There are many pre-designed shop-related pages to help your clients choose a product, for example:
- Sizing tables
- FAQ and other support or delivery information
The WooCommerce store & selling tools: how to customize the store
The Laveri WordPress clothing store theme has everything the WooCommerce engine offers, including payment gateways, inventory controls, pricing system, shipping methods and more.
Let’s now have a closer look at the shop layout in particular.
Via the same visual WP Customizer interface, you can tweak the shop look by configuring the following settings:
- Show products, categories, or both in your default shop page
- Show products, subcategories, or both in the default category view
- Customize the default product sorting by price, popularity, etc.
- Set how many products per page and per row to show
- Decide on the default product image in a shop grid.
Here you can also customize the checkout experience for clients by editing specific fields.
The handy categorization, filtering, sorting and breadcrumb options will benefit the shopping process of your clients, making it fully streamlined and intuitive.
The Add to cart functionality is Ajax-based, which means products are added to cart without page refreshing.
There is also a handy wishlist functionality, the look of which you can also customize via a free plugin.
When setting up your store, WooCommerce will help you go through the process with a handy store wizard, but still you need to know what else you can do.
Payment gateways in Lavery are available via basic WooCommerce capabilities: feel free to enable PayPal, cash on delivery, direct bank transfer, and check payments without any paid addons.
Delivery options allow you to deliver locally and abroad. WooCommerce supports flat rate, free shipping, and local pick-up delivery methods. Entice your shoppers to buy more by offering a free delivery for a specific order amount.
Product reviews are incorporated with the default Woo functionality, with Laveri we also make a great accent on them, so it’s a great chance to build trust with customers by displaying real user-generated reviews.
Describing all the WooCommerce features deserves a post of its own, there is a huge ecosystem of the native and third-party addons made to cover every possible need of every local requirement (e.g. local gateways or scheduled delivery options).
Creative blog layouts for your outfit posts
We went the extra mile to design and pack Laveri with outstanding blog layouts. So it’s also a great starting point if you just need a lightweight fashion blog template with or without selling options!
You can pick a blog layout via the Customizer in a click. For example:
- A creative blog layout is rather asymmetrical with random sizing of the featured blog images
- A modern blog layout has a rather classic view
- A Journal style for a minimalist view
