You see them on the street and in magazines – men and women wearing outfits that always fit perfectly. What do fashion designers and stylish people know that you don’t?
They went to a tailor. It’s the secret weapon of stylish people.
Here’s a few ways a custom tailor can help you look and feel more stylish:
Make a piece that is already working work even better
Think about it: no one else in the world has a body exactly like yours. Even if you’re a straight off-the-rack size, a few thoughtful tucks or skillful tapers can make that jacket or skirt look like it just stepped off the runway.
Give new life to old threads
You’ve heard the standard advice – go through your closet and toss or donate anything you haven’t worn in six months. However, getting those outfits that have been collecting dust in your closet altered by a professional has the power to make a drab outfit into something that looks so fantastic you’ll never want to give it away.
By making you look better, it can make you feel better
A skilled tailor can make a dramatic difference – in how your clothes fit and how you feel wearing them. Altering clothes “because you are worth it” gives both your wardrobe and your self-esteem a wonderful boost.
Understand that a fit is not a custom fit
Ask anyone in the fashion industry what is the most important thing about any garment. Without a doubt, the answer will always be the same: what matters most is how well it fits your body. As one famous designer says, “Fit is everything. I don’t care what your body type is. If you’re not wearing clothes that fit you, you can’t have style.” Tailoring is a simple and affordable way to give your clothes that custom fit, making them much more flattering and indefinitely more stylish.
So yes, there’s many ways that tailoring can transform your clothes and improve your style. But be warned: because most men and women don’t take advantage of a tailor’s transformational skills, your stylish wardrobe may spark quite a bit of interest. So you may spend some time talking about your clothes. After all, when you dress stylishly, you inevitably attract that sort of attention, as people will then want to know what your secret weapon is.
