TIP OF THE DAY NO. 49 – CAN WOMEN LOOK BETTER?

TIP NO. 49 – CAN WOMEN LOOK BETTER?

Never before have we had as many clothes, and options – what to wear–  than today. So why do we seldom see a well dressed, well put together woman? (by the way this is also true for men?)

Doing some research and people watching, I came up with the following 3 reasons:

1. FIT – most garments don’t fit well – too long, too tight, too loose, shoulders not in the right place, sleeves too long, too baggy

2. CONDITION OF CLOTHES – wrinkled, out of shape, snagged, (I know the wrinkled look is in, but nothing replaces an ironed, crisp looking shirt).

3. COORDINATION – Brown pants, a red and black plaid shirt and a blue jacket don’t look good together – the I saw wearing it really did not care – she must have just thrown these items on, without even looking in the mirror.

Nobody makes all three mistakes, but even one is enough to prevent a woman from looking well dressed. But it is not difficult to correct these missteps – paying a little attention, taking a little more time to check things out – or like we say today be more in the NOW when it comes to looking your best.

See you tomorrow

TIP OF THE DAY – 21 LOOKING GOOD AND DRESSING WELL

TIP NO. 21 – FINDING A MATCH

You might have items in your wardrobe which don’t have a mate.  Like that wonderful skirt you bought in a sale, but you don’t  have anything that really matches –  so it is hanging in your closet not serving its purpose — and when you try to find something that can go with it, it will be hard to remember the exact tone of beige, or without having the skirt, to know how a top you are looking at is the right shape  —- not too long, not too loose——not the right color!

The only way to get it right is to take the item you want to match  to the store, find what goes with it and try it on together. I know it is a bit of a nuisance, but the effort will reward you with a new outfit.

See you tomorrow
