1. PLAY TO YOUR STRENGTHS
The beauty of tailoring is everyone can find the right cut, colour and style to show off their best assets.
“If you have great legs, showcase them with a closely tailored pair of trousers,” says designer Heather Griffiths-Benhrima
2. CONSIDER YOUR SILHOUETTE
Oversized blazers are a major trend at the moment, but if loose cuts aren't appealing, opt for a more sleek silhouette.
“Careful placement of the waistline is incredibly important,” says Jet Shenkman
3. FIND THE RIGHT BALANCE
While a matching suit jacket and trouser set is the easiest way to do tailoring head to toe, contrasting cuts can be really flattering.
“If you're opting for a loose cut trouser, create a great shape by teaming it with a shorter, more tailored top".
4. YOU DON'T HAVE TO FOLLOW SEASONAL TRENDS
New tailoring styles crop up all the time, but if you prefer classic cuts and colours over edgy styles, you don't have to follow every trend. “more trendy accessorising, like trendy boots and tights in clashing colours”.
5. EMBRACE COLOUR AND PRINT
“Don't be frightened of bright colours, throw them all together and enjoy the result,” says Shenkman.
“It will brighten your day!”
Fashion fans have gone wild for fuchsia recently. The trend looks set to continue into 2023.
