This is a question I was asked last week on a personal shopping trip and one that I frequently get asked by clients. So in an attempt to make it easier for you, here I'm going to dissect it and go through some points to take into consideration when deciding to tuck or untuck.
Most of the time, I'm making subtle changing to client's wardrobes. It's not necessarily about having the big "ta-da....male makeover moment" but about introducing you to small changes that make a difference. This could be by using more colour, pattern, different shapes or a better fit.
Here I've picked out 3 shirts with slightly different collar styles that you may not have tried before, but which may add some variety to your wardrobe and not just feel like you've bought yet another generic pale blue or white shirt.
There's a definite 1970s influence to the things in the shops at the moment and perhaps that's why there are lots of printed shirts around.
When clients ask me to take them shopping, we might stock up on some basics but they're often looking for something slightly different from what they would normally choose and different colours and prints are a good way to do that. So I thought I'd share with you some of the printed shirts that I've bought with various clients over the past couple of weeks and how we styled them:
Whilst batting some ideas round with a client who'd recently signed up to my subscription service - he told me he'd been searching for clothes for people who ride bikes in cities & had discovered Rapha, a brand that not only do cycling clothes but office friendly ones too.
I did some research into more brands and here are some suggestions on others who produce great urban cycling clothes that will be practical for your journey but won't look out of place once you've jumped off your bike and headed into the office.
I thought it might be helpful to share a few of the questions that I'm asked frequently by clients whilst we're on shopping trips or during a personal styling session, and the answers I give or the other websites I direct them to for reference.
