Many of us wear clothes that don’t fit right. Walking around in ill-fitting clothes does nothing for our body shape and it could put a dampen on our mood if most of our clothes don’t look good on us. I have discovered that a lot of people have no clue what to look out for when picking clothes. They just look at the design and colours, pick a size they think would fit them and run with it. That is how to pick clothes that don’t fit you. If you want to know how to select clothes that fit right then keep reading.
Don’t squeeze in!
The first step in buying clothes that fit is to get them in the right size. Don’t be tempted to get a size smaller and squeeze in. It won’t look good on you. Remember that jacket/coat sleeves should hit the wrist bone. The sleeves should be slim to show off the shape of the arms but loose enough to allow you wear a top underneath.
Can you bend?
When buying jackets, coats and tops, make sure you can bend your arms easily. Ensure you can bend your knees too when trying on jeans, skirts and dresses.
Check the trousers!
Check that the trouser you have an eye on doesn’t have excess material in the zipper and crotch area. This is very important as some of them tend to have more than the fabric required here.
Can you tuck in that shirt?
Ensure the shirt you have on can be tucked in neatly. Some shirts are not long enough to tuck in because the designers scrimp on fabric at the bottom of the shirt. Don’t go for shirts like that unless you enjoy tucking in your shirt every 30 minutes.
Go for comfortable clothing.
Avoid clothing that isn’t comfortable to wear. Any garments that feels uncomfortable or painful to wear isn’t worth the hassle. Style and comfort go hand in hand. You can’t be stylish if you are not comfortable.
Are the buttons in the right places?
Before you buy a new piece, check where the buttons are. This is really important as where the buttons are can make or break the entire look. I hate it when buttons have gaps in between them that reveal the cleavage. That can be so embarrassing.
When opened, the top buttons should sit just above the bust.
