Advices for women.

These are keypieces in your wardrobe:
Jacket, trousers, skirts , blouses,  Tshirt/knitted tops, dresses, coat, shoes boots.

You need a skilled tailor, shoemaker and a excellent authorized dry cleaner.

1. Buy highquality and classic fashion : buy style instead of Fashion. Buy on sale if possible because it is smarter to choose quality on sale than ordinary quality to full price. Buying less garments but in higher quality is the most logic soluiton.  By choosing high quality  you show your environment your knowhow and are willing to spend a bit more to look elegant.. noone needs to know you bought on sale...

2. Take good care of your wardrobe . When dry cleaning is requested  its necessary to follow the instructions on the carelabel you find inside the garment. Dry cleaning will not always remove deodorant and perfume therefor you should wear a tshirt camisole or similar under the jacket to avoid these problems ( deodorant leave white trace in the armhole). You do not notice these aspects of deo and perfumes in the garment until you get really warm. It is still possible to find armhole protectors  which can be put in place by your tailor so you can remove them and wash them without needing to wash the dress/ jacket. The best thing you can do is to hang the garment on your balcony or garden to let the wind fresh up the garment.

3. Go for cleancut dresses in waterwashable textiles to economize your wardrobe. Will you need dresses for travelling make sure you can pack them without them beeing creased. Go for materials as crepeblends, wool, jersey viscoses and tencel microfibres etc.

4. Trousers must be waterwashable! Do not even consider dry ceaning. It is without no doubt the only option since a significant amount of women suffer from incontinence.

5. Beware of the fit. Never buy a garment too thight, it will make you look fat. To see a woman wearing a dress too thight is true pain. She will look like a Micheline tyer. Looking like that is a intellektual statemet and shows a proof of no knowledge about style and quality. You also easier get warmer in thight clothes.

6. Choose classic clours i Your base wardrobe. Add seasonal coloured accessories  such as scarves necklaces earings simple tops, to uppdate your look.

7. Take care of Your shoes. There uncountable reasons for this. People notice Your shoes. In Sweden there is a saying that goes: " Show me Your shoes and I shall tell You who You are". Buy good quality, and at least 5 pairs for your base wardrobe. Make sure  heels are different in height. Do not forget shoetree, and make use of them all the time. A wellmade shoe should have an inbuilt support for the arch of the foot. If that support is excluded, use an inlay and protect your back/spine. Use shoes made from leather or new techmaterial that allow  your feet too breathe or you will get int trouble with embarassing odeur. Ask your shoemaker to add a rubbersole to the frontpart of your shoes to protect them from raindamage.
