A well-cut suit is flattering and, even more than a LBD, creates instant polish!
- Focus on lean, not tight; expect some restriction of movement (no gymnastics but hugging yourself shouldn't be painful)
- Look for a jacket that allows elbows to be placed snugly against your front without creating too much stretch across the back
- The collar should be flush with the neck
- Sleeves should graze the wrist bone (too long and you look like you borrowed the shirt from your big sib; and too short and you looked like you borrowed it from your kid sib)
