When you’re designing a home or office, you might want to consider what to wear in front of and behind the camera.
It’s a common practice, but how to dress up the space to impress the people you want to impress may be even more important.
Read moreThe designers who make the best of the trends are the ones who keep up with fashion and are able to find the right look for the moment.
That means you need to get the right kind of dress to compliment the designer’s aesthetic, said Mark T. Dever, a professor of interior design at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
While there are several styles for both men and women, the main trend is the tailored, button-down-style.
And when it comes to women’s tailored suits, the most popular choice is a straight-neck shirt, Dever said.
“A lot of people have been wearing button-downs since the 1970s, so that’s a style that is going to be in the mainstream,” he said.
“There’s a lot of designers who are making that a little bit more contemporary with this new trend.”
While most people think about suits in terms of the neck, the neckline, waist and shoulder, Dver said they’re really important to the designer.
“They’re the foundation of the suit, so the more you can incorporate those elements into the design, the more your suit will stand out and the more it’ll stand out,” he added.
But you might not want to look like you’re trying to be the next Chanel.
A look tailored to your body type might look a little out of place if you’re not sure if it’s a suit for you.
“We’re not really sure that suits are tailored to the body type of a person,” Dever explained.
“We know they can be tailored to any body type.”
That’s why many designers will start out with a more basic style and work their way up to a more tailored fit.
For men, Dvers suggested a classic suit, with a blazer and a shirt that’s at the hip and a tie.
“You need a suit that’s going to make you look your best.
If you’re a straight guy, that suit is going at the waist,” Dver explained.
For women, they should go for a tailored suit, tailored at the shoulders, with ties, a shirt and blazer.
A tailor may also try to match the designer to the type of clothes the person they’re designing for.
“There’s nothing wrong with wearing a suit, but if the person you’re wearing the suit to is going out to dinner or something like that, then the suit will look really different than the person who’s coming in for the job,” Dvers said.
Dever said that, for women, she looks for a suit with the same width, which is a big deal because the tailor may want to create a suit tailored to a woman’s waist, hips and waistline.
“The idea is that you don’t want to make a suit so narrow that you’re basically going to lose the fit of the jacket, which would be really, really problematic for your shoulders,” he explained.
The same goes for men.
For men, a straight shirt and tie is good, but a more formal jacket is good as well.
“I like to go with a suit suit jacket, and a more casual suit, and then a tie,” he suggested.
“I really like a more professional look, but I’m not going to go overboard with it.”
Dever also pointed out that women often choose to go in for more formal suits for the men’s sake.
“Women have been doing that for a long time, and it’s just a great look for them,” he noted.
“It gives them that sense of style and confidence.”
When it comes time to shop, Divers said he has some tips for you to keep in mind.
“When it’s time to buy, if it looks to me like I can afford it, then I’ll be comfortable paying for it,” he advised.
“But if I’m getting an opportunity to get a good deal on something and it looks like I’m going to have to pay a lot, then it’s going be a better decision to get something cheaper.”
