Novelty and trendiness are some of the reasons to love fast fash. Less loveable is the fact that one-size-fits-no-one. But without good fit, fashion looks sloppy. Seriously, you could drop thousands on a spendy suit but if it doesnt fit, it will look cheap; however, if you tailor something you picked up for a song so it looks custom-made, it makes you look pricey (in a good way). And even if classic just isn't your thing and your style runs more toward trendy, trust me, you should know the rules of fit before you start bending them. If you aspire to stylishness, the big secret is knowing how things should fit. (Fashionable French women do. Just sayin'.)
Starting at the neckline & working my way down to the floor, my latest piece for Answers.com will hone your eye for proper fit in no time.
