The Secret …. TWEAK, TWEAK, TWEAK and then TWEAK some more ;-D
I don’t know how many times – honestly, every day, everywhere – I see people who have put on a nice outfit but have failed to look the very best they can in it. At times a person has actually spent loads of money on clothes and accessories (How to dress like a Millionaire on any budget – coming soon) , but it looks like they haven’t because of this one mistake they make when they are dressing. The Mistake…
They don’t TWEAK their outfit once they are clothed. What? What does that mean? What actually is TWEAKING?
TWEAKING is making small adjustments to your clothes and accessories once you put them on, so they look good on you.
So once you’ve got on your fabulous outfit (How To Easily Update your Wardrobe Every Season so You Always Look Chic), TWEAKING is the last step that you do before you walk out the door. And the devil is in the detail with things like:
- Does it look better for my sleeves to be pushed up or left down?
- Are my trousers, shorts, skirts sitting at the right spot on my waist or hips?
- Does the hem of my top land at the right spot or would it look better tucked in?
- Do my trousers need to rolled up?
- Do I have on the right accessories to go with this?
- Are there any ripples or roles that need to be smoothed out?
TWEAKING is all about getting proportion right on your body. So don’t be afraid to play with doing all these small adjustments until you get it right. TWEAKING – is what makes the difference between a nice outfit looking not good to ok on you to You Looking Great!
Here’s How To TWEAK:
You MUST have a full-length mirror in which you can observe ALL sides of your body from head to toe. If you can’t see it, you can’t fix it!
Once you are fully dressed, begin to make those small adjustments. We all have different body shapes so one person’s adjustments may not work for another. You will start to get the hang of what little TWEAKS will work best for you (What Basic Looks Work for Your Body Shape so You Always Look Great – this is sooo important). For example, you may notice that you look best with a dropped waist which is easily achieved if your top ends at that length or you wear skirts which start at the hip rather than the natural waist. TWEAKING is about getting that final adjustment just right so your clothes land at the right spot or in the right way so they look best on you.
TWEAKING must be done from every angle – front, each side and whatever you do, don’t forget the back! This is sooo important as just because an outfit looks good from one angle, doesn’t mean it makes the grade from another. You want to look good from every side as well as coming and going.
Make sure once you’ve TWEAKED, everything works right (How To Avoid Wardrobe Malfunctions)
Don’t forget to keep it up: just because you look like a Celeb when you walk away from the mirror, doesn’t mean that this look will survive throughout your active day. Life is lived in motion, so each time you make a pit stop or make a new entrance, do a quick TWEAK session first. You’ll feel much better for it. However, Don’t constantly TWEAK around others – this will send out the wrong message to be sure and the constant fidgeting will overshadow all the great work you’ve done. Happy TWEAKING ;-D
