Why your clothes don’t fit right

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.

 

Are you familiar with any of these clothing issues?

Outfit Post – Cheshire Fashion Blog UK

*Affiliate Links.

Hey Fashion Lovers! Another week, another fashion blog for you. I have been slacking the outfit post category for some weeks now. Life got in the way but things are cooling down now so it is back to business as usual in the fashion and style department. This blog started purely as a fashion blog, and I truly enjoy writing about fashion and style, and showing off my personal style.

I wore this outfit some days ago. The weather in Cheshire has been great in the last few days. We have had sunny days and still a bit of rain, but I can’t complain. It is a lot better now than how it was some weeks ago. Long may the good weather continue.

This look was super easy to style. I put the look together from scratch within 5 minutes. I didn’t even have to overthink it, which is the beauty of having a capsule wardrobe. Every piece just falls in the right place.

I am wearing an African print blouse I got some years ago. I love wearing this piece especially in the summer months. It is dead comfy to wear all day if needed, and it is super easy to style too!  Everything else I have on is from my existing wardrobe, except my sunglasses, that is a new addition. I got the sunglasses some weeks ago. It is the latest addition to my sunglasses collection and my current favourite. I love the oversized shape and the colour. It ticks all the right boxes for me.

Best Ever Oscar Dresses of the last 20 years

*Collaborative post.

The Oscars has to be up there as one of the most scrutinised red-carpet events when it comes to fashion. Over the years, actresses have dazzled in Dior, looked elegant in Elie Saab and wowed in Vera Wang. Who knows what this year’s crop’s will be wearing and even though it’s not an official award, it’s always the go-to topic at the water cooler post-ceremony and you can bet on the Oscars on Betfair. While we speculate over who will look hot – and who will not (eek!) – let’s take a look back at the red carpet over the past few years.

 

2017 – Emma Stone in Givenchy

Emma Stone’s stylist revealed that it took a team of 11 designers and 1,700 hours to create her bespoke beaded wonder for the 2017 Academy Awards – and the result was pretty incredible. The golden screen goddess looked amazing in her shimmering 1920s style flapper dress and it was a fitting tribute to La La Land, the film for which, she won Best Actress. Believe it or not, Stone was the first woman to win the coveted Best Actress while wearing a Givenchy gown, since Audrey Hepburn in 1954.

 

2014 – Lupita Nyong’o in Prada

Best Supporting Actress for her role in 12 Years a Slave, Lupita Nyong’o very much had a Cinderella moment is her floaty pale blue Prada dress with beaded pearl headband combo. In the year that followed, Nyong’o became a style icon – but best of all, she paid homage to her roots, describing her custom-made dress as “Nairobi blue”.

 

2013 – Jennifer Lawrence in Dior

All eyes were on Jennifer Lawrence when she went up to receive her Best Actress award for Silver Linings Playbookin 2013, and she gracefully fell up the stairs. But prior to that, all eyes were on Jennifer Lawrence as she took the red carpet in the ivory gown, courtesy of Dior – with whom, she’s had a glistening partnership since 2012. Unlike other custom-made designs, J-Law simply tried this on that morning: “I just woke up and tried on the dress, and it fit, thank God!” she said matter-of-factly. “Then I took a shower – that’s what I did. And I got my hair and make-up done. And then I came to the Oscars” she told Vogue.

 

2012 – Angelina Jolie in Versace

How could we forget Angelina Jolie in that famous strapless black dress by Versace? That dramatic thigh-high slit was shown off in every photo opportunity, with the actress becoming the subject of memes, photobombs and even a Twitter account. ‘Angie’s leg’ was actually a thing. Not one to usually draw attention to herself at awards ceremonies, Jolie’s bold stance certainly took people by surprise – but was also the subject of much mocking, particularly by the screenwriters of The Descendants.

 

2009 – Penelope Cruz in Balmain

No stranger to the glamour of red-carpet events, Penelope Cruz could – and possibly should – feature in every ‘best dressed’ list going. But one stand-out dress has to be the vintage Pierre Balmain gown she wore to the 2009 Academy Awards, which channelled a fairy tale princess – and also saw her bag the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress.

 

2006 – Michelle Williams in Vera Wang

Yellow is one of those colours that so few can pull off, but Michelle Williams looked every inch the bold beauty at the 2006 Academy Awards. With a pleated neckline and long train, Williams decided to go all-out, teaming the saffron frock with a bright red lip. It’s become one of the most memorable Oscar dresses of all-time and with good reason. The actress had actually attended the ceremony with then-boyfriend, the late Heath Ledger, who received a Best Actor nomination for Brokeback Mountain.
