There’s no faster way to look more put together and elegant than having a closet full of well-tailored clothes. But if you have a hard time finding pieces that fit you properly—from struggling with long pant hems or boxy blazers—know that there’s an easy fix for that: A tailor!
Bringing your clothes into a trusted seamstress to be nipped and tucked can make all the difference, especially considering you can change the details that you don’t find flattering. With a little bit of an investment, you can make your wardrobe fit better and feel more custom to not only your body type, but your style. Ahead are some tips when it comes to tailoring (that I learned from embarking on this alterations journey myself), as well as before and after transformations to give you an idea of what kind of magic can be worked.
