When it comes to getting that perfect outfit for the evening, one of the most important aspects to remember is to look great in the latest and greatest designer suits. Whilst subtle style changes can occur season-to-season, generally, the basic structure of all designer suits remains unchanged. The basic elements used to create a great quality, tailored suit of today are still used in the making of high quality, tailored suits of yesterday. These essential elements include: the cut of the garment, the fabric that it is made from, the style and color of the buttons and of course, the fabric that the jacket is made from. This is the type of fabric that gives the wearer the ability to achieve that tailored look.
The cut of the garment is something that is used a lot to change the look of a suit. Many styles are based on how the cut of a suit makes the body appear. A high neck, for example, will make the neck appear much smaller than it actually is, whilst wearing a waistcoat will give the wearer the illusion of having a larger waist than they actually do. These types of cuts are often associated with being conservative, although these days this isn’t the case. There are many modern variations of these cuts, such as slim fit or the ultra-feminine A-line style. The main point to remember about these types of cuts is that they can enhance the body rather than making it appear slimmer.
The fabric that a suit is made from is also very important. Although the color of a suit can be as important as the cut and design, the fabric itself can create a great amount of emphasis on either side of the body. This is due to how the fabric will be accentuated by the fabric of the trousers. For example, a white shirt and blue tie will create an overall uniform that will draw attention to the collar and tie, whilst black shoes and a gray or grayish dress shirt will make a complete contrast and focus on the legs.
