Just Because It’s Your Size, Doesn’t Mean It Fits

22 Oct

A little while ago I took my brother-in-law shopping for a new suit.

You all know that I don’t work with guys, so I’m certainly not an expert in menswear, however I do know enough about tailoring to know when something does and doesn’t fit.

At the very first place we visited the lady in the shop measured my brother-in-law and told him what size he was. She then gave him a few options to try on, in his size.

None of the three fit – properly.  Sure he could get them on and he could move in them comfortably and he liked the color of the fabric (..and I’m sure if I wasn’t there he would have thought they were absolutely fine) – but that isn’t enough, as you can see is demonstrated in these photos above.

If you want to look (and feel) great in your clothes (Of course this applies to both men and women) they need to fit you just right.

Just because something is your (supposed) size, doesn’t mean it fits.

How Great Jeans Should Look

10 May

The second photo is how a great pair of jeans should look.

In the first image the pockets are all wrong, the fabric isn’t good (ie there’s no support), the jeans are too big, the color of the denim is ho-hum…and they’re not sitting in the right place on the waist.

Basically unflattering!

..and aging!

Which do your jeans look like?  The before image or the after image?

Thank you to my lovely model . To think that bum was hidden under those daggy jeans. Doesn’t she look great!  Ten years younger. 🙂

Are Your Dowdy Clothes Ageing You?

17 Mar

Are your dowdy skirts and ill-fitting jackets making you look older than you are and frumpier than you want to be? (Nobody wants to look frumpy, right?)

Next time you try on a skirt and/or a jacket take a close look in the mirror..

Is the skirt length flattering your legs?

Is it sitting at the right place on your waist?

Is there too much fabric?

Is the jacket the right length for you?

Do the shoulders and armholes fit properly?

Is there too much material in the sleeves?

Is the style still current? (Or outdated?)

As you can see in the images above, a few tweaks (and perhaps a little bit of photo-shopping in one) to what you’re wearing and how you’re wearing it can make a whole lot of difference.

If you’re not sure about some of the clothes in your wardrobe and would like help determining whether something should stay or go or be reinvented, book in (or enquire about) a Wardrobe Overhaul here  (Likewise if you’re not confident shopping for flattering clothes)

One Way To Visually Lengthen Your Legs

26 Apr

Often the smallest adjustment, can make the biggest difference.

(Remember I showed you the impact tucking in can have here.)

There are several reasons rolling up your sleeves can have a positive effect on your overall look – one being that it can visually make your legs appear longer.

(I’ll let you study the picture and see if you can figure out the others.)

Of course it’s also a benefit if your sleeves are too long – as demonstrated in the picture on the left.

In case you missed it, I also talked about rolling up sleeves here and here.

..and here’s another tip for lengthening the legs.
