TIP OF THE DAY NO. 72. – SUITS – MOST FLATTERING STYLE FOR YOUR FIGURE!

TIP NO. 72 – SUITS – MOST FLATTERING STYLE FOR YOUR FIGURE!

Whether you wear pant suits, or suits with a skirt, it is the jacket that dictates the look. And there again proportions are  most important, and your figure type decides which style is best.

A SMALL SLIM WOMAN will look best in a fitted short jacket, and if she is a little on the heavy side, a slightly looser style is better, but it should still be on the short side – maybe two inches longer than for a slimmer woman.

A SLIM WOMAN, 5 feet 6 inches to 5 feet 8 inches can choose any jacket length that pleases her, fitted or loose.

A TALL SLIM WOMAN, 5 feet  and up, can wear many styles, but a fitted or belted  will show off her figure best.

A TALL HEAVY WOMAN should wear a straight, fairly long jacket, but nothing longer than halfway over her  bottom or it will make her look heavier.

Please don’t feel bad when you don’t look good in the latest style – remember fashion is what suits you!

See you tomorrow

20 STEPS HOW TO AVOID MISTAKES IN YOUR WARDROBE # 12 AND #13

            Hello Everyone

            Has the heat kept you out of the stores the last few weeks? I know the worst thing to do , when we are all hot and sweaty is to try on a pair of pants, or anything else. But while you might be waiting for the cooler weather to take advantage of the sales, we can learn a little more on how to avoid a mistake.

            # 12 BUY OUTFITS OR SEPARATES THAT GO TOGETHER.

            Do not buy only a skirt or only a top. (Exception: if you are buying a piece to match something you already have.) Often a top and bottom are designed to be worn together. But when you buy only one piece you might never find a match. If you cannot afford a whole outfit or two matching pieces, discipline yourself to wait and save until you have money to buy what goes together.

          #13. TAKE TO THE STORE WHAT YOU ARE TRYING TO FIND A MATCH FOR.

          When you want to find a blouse for your new gray suit, wear it to the store and try the blouse with it. Or if you need a skirt to wear with your cream-colored shirt, take the shirt and put it on when trying the skirt you’re consider buying. This way you can avoid coming home with a blouse that doesn’t fit the style of your jacket, or a skirt that looks wrong with the cream-colored blouse.

           No, don’t be hard on yourself by thinking you should know. After all, it is difficult to remember colors exactly or to see what styles go together unless you see them in front of you. I remember a customer of mine, who each time we went through her wardrobe, brought out a skirt she had fallen in love some years back. Whenever I hinted that it was time to let it go, since she had not found a match in last 4 years, she answered: “Don’t worry, one day I will.” and so we hang it back. But eventually, I don’t remember if it was year five or six, she greeted me by saying, “This skirt is really starting to frustrate me, let’s just get rid of it.”

            So, don’t let a skirt frustrate you, just make sure he has a mate when you buy it.

Until next time

20 STEPS HOW TO AVOID MISTAKES IN YOUR WARDROBE #10 & 11.

Hi Everybody

          Did you find an item you liked enough to buy it in different colors? You didn’t  have time to go shopping last week – well, remember it when you do.

Here are the next two tips:

# 10 CONSIDER HOW YOU FEEL IN A GARMENT

      When you slip into a dress, a coat, a suit, or whatever, it should instantly make you feel better. If you think it looks nice but you don’t feel quite right in it, it’s not for you. Don’t convince yourself by saying: “It’s not bad.”   is not good enough. Keep in mind if you feel good in your clothes you will move well in them. You project a certain reassurance and confidence.

        Whenever you hesitate or are in doubt, don’t buy it. You should love an item the minute you put it on.

#11. LOOK AT THE FIT OF A GARMENT.

          A bad fit can ruin the look.

          Make sure that you can see yourselfu  back and from the side. The garment should not pull anywhere or pucker in the wrong places – like in the crotch when trying on a pair of pants. If there is no mirror to look at the back, use your powder compact to see the back.

         SHOULDER SEAMS must on you natural shoulder line, not farther in or out, unless a dropped shoulder is the style of the dress. Shoulders that are too narrow make a garment look too small, when they are too wide, a garment looks too big.

        Watch the SLEEVE LENGTH. A long sleeve must not extend over your hand – I know some women think it is attractive when you don’t see their hands anymore – but the right length for a long sleeve is your wrist bone.

        PANTS should not pull in the crotch area or pucker in the back when you are standing straight. It is indeed difficult to find a well-fitting pair of pants, but worth the trouble of trying on a few pairs until you find the one that flatters your figure.When it comes to length, the pants should cover your heel half way – unless fashion says ankle length or less, and you want to wear that style.

         If BLOUSES and JACKETS pull across the front,it means that they are too small and you need a bigger size. But the contrary is also true, if you feel too comfortable, look again – you might be able to take a size smaller.

Until next week

STAY WELL AND LOOK YOUR BEST
