Welcome back! If you’re new here, hop on over to Primer One so that you can start at the very beginning. We’re building up habits day-by-day and we’re getting all spiffed up.
The sixth habit in our month-long series of new habits is this: Wear only clothes that fit you perfectly.
That’s right. Out with the baggy and out with the snug. Out with the too short and the too long. Out with the unflattering. Only wear clothes that are neither too tight nor too loose; do this and you’ll look, well, prettier and more dignified. Here’s the hard part: you have to do this without regard for the number on the label. Your waist doesn’t know which number you’d like it to be, so dress to suit what actually is. Clothes that are too small do you no favors; no one else can see that you’re wearing a size N; all they can see is the muffin top piling out of your pants. Clothes that are too large billow unattractively and hide your curves. Let your clothes skim instead of forcing them to sag or cinch.
It’s so much better for your look to wear clothes that truly fit you.
