Think of the clothes in your closet...are there a few pieces that make you feel like you can take on the world when you wear them? If there are ones that don't, consider going to see a tailor. Tailors can take an OK garment and turn it into a wardrobe staple that you'll wear again and again!
Below are 4 simple and low-cost alterations that can be made to almost every garment. Give your wardrobe a refresh and stop in to Artful Tailoring!
Hemming a shirt: The length of your shirt can make you look taller or shorter. Get a second look from a tailor to determine your best length.
Taking in the sides of an oversized garment: If you're wanting to show off your frame, taking in a shirt typically an easy and low-cost alteration.
Hemming your pants: This can take your from sloppy to snazzy in no time! Learn about pant breaks and which one is best for your height. Petites: you can get away with a slightly more cropped look that will make you look taller. Added tip: wash your pants before taking them to the tailor. They could shrink!
Tapering: Both sleeves and legs. Too much volume in these areas can make you look like you're wearing the wrong size garment. Ask a tailor to slim it in to better suit your frame.
