It’s finally time to pack away the sweaters and pull out the tank tops—summer has arrived! As you perform the seasonal wardrobe switch, you realize your summer selections are not up to snuff. You were sure you had more than this last year. A few items no longer fit. Some are looking pretty worn. What’s a fashion-conscious Cape May County resident to do? Simply check into alterations in Cape May County. Your summer wardrobe will be ready in no time. Here’s how.
Transform winter wear to warm wear
Do you have a pair of jeans that could be snipped into shorts? Maybe your long-sleeved shirts include a couple that would look great sleeveless. Would those khakis work as capris? Look over your “warm month” clothes to see if you’d like to transition any of them into summer wear. You can create several new outfits out of old garments—possibly ones you were tired of anyway. Now they’ll be like new!
Don’t fear the rack
Unless you’re a supermodel, clothes off the rack probably don’t fit your body perfectly. (And even supermodels have their clothes tailored, so don’t feel bad.) A long waistline, short legs or a top half that needs a different size than your bottom half can wreak havoc on finding the right size. When you keep alterations in mind, you don’t have to worry so much. Simply budget for alterations as you shop for your summer gear and know that whatever you buy will fit perfectly soon enough.
Expand your search
Once you realize alterations are an option, your whole wardrobe world expands. If you don’t want to spend $90 on a dress plus alterations, shop the thrift stores and find one for $9. If it’s not your size, who cares? Simply bring it to Court House Cleaners for alterations in Cape May County. For less than you would have paid for the new one, you can have a sundress that looks like it was made with you in mind.
Let’s face it. Seasonal changes often mean weight changes, too. If your clothes from last summer aren’t fitting quite right anymore, don’t worry. You don’t need to run out and buy a new wardrobe. Have your favorite pieces altered instead. If you’ve lost weight, slim your clothing down to your new trim size. If winter added a few pounds, no sweat. You’ll lose it this summer. Meanwhile, if your best shorts are a little snug, just let them out a little.
Have you ever wondered how those perfectly-put-together fashionistas look so good? Does it amaze you how well some men fit in their dress shirts? They don’t have magical model powers—their clothes are tailored. If you want to look your best this summer, don’t settle for something that fits “okay.” With a few alterations, you’ll be the one amazing others with your perfectly tailored look. Do you have a top that’s awesome, but just a little too long? Is your best sundress super cute but, if you’re honest, just a bit too big? Let’s fix that.
Bring your favorites in to Court House Cleaners for alterations in Cape May County, and look as brilliant as the sun this summer.
