Cashmere is renown for its incredible softness & warmth. Forgive the branded plug but Trenery has produced some great info on what it is & how to look after it. I have a set of these info cards so stay tuned for further updates.
The key to understanding good style for you & your wardrobe is learning about your shape. The biggest "Ah-ha" moment with any client is when they get their head around their body & face shapes, what flatters them & why. We can't understand balance & proportion & how it relates to good style until we understand what are bodies do (& don't) need to achieve it. Regardless of your shape it is what it is & the sooner you come to terms with that the better. A few kilo's up or down will rarely change an apple into an hourglass or a pear into a column. you are far better off learning how to maximise what you do have rather than continually stressing about what you don't. Shapes, styles, hem lengths, necklines, shoes, accessories & even the right colour contrast can all help create a fabulous & flattering look when you know what you're looking for - stylebutler.com.au
It's all about the fit. The number one rule for guys when buying clothes for work or the weekend is making sure things fit well. So many guys buy things that are way too big for them hoping the extra fabric will hide how heavy or skinny they are. Most often though this strategy just makes heavy blokes look heavier & skinny blokes look skinnier. Aim for a good fit around your shoulders, middle & waist, & hemlines that finish at the right lengths for shirts & pants. If you think you're an unusual size that isn't catering for in the store then buy big but have it altered in the necessary places. Paying an extra $25-$30 to have something tailored for your shape can make the world of difference to your confidence & style - stylebutler.com.au
