Modesty and Tailoring

Modesty and Tailoring

Opting for tasteful necklines and skirt lengths is always a good idea (especially in the office) to ensure you're looking as professional as possible. It is also important that your garments are the correct size for you. If the dress you're trying on is clinging to a part of your body that you want to disguise, it's best to opt for the next size up. If the pants fit you perfectly through the waist and legs but are just a bit too long, consider visiting your local tailor to get the length just right. We promise these small changes are going to make a huge impact in how the garment looks and feels.
