Personal Appearance: Tips for Dressing for your Body Type with Magdy Kotb
Personal appearance, much like a well-tailored garment, speaks volumes before a single word is uttered. It’s not simply about finding clothes that fit, but rather understanding the transformative power of bespoke tailoring. The magic is in customizing even the most ordinary attire, taking a ready-to-wear garment and sculpting it to highlight one’s best features, irrespective of body type.
Magdy Kotb, Founder of Clothing Coach emphasizes the importance of understanding how to work with a tailor when dressing for one’s body type on the Coach Yu Show. Kotb explains that a tailor can transform an ill-fitted garment into a custom-looking piece. This knowledge can also help in finding value and deals, as often discounted items are not popular sizes.
He suggests that most items in a wardrobe can be enhanced by a tailor and advises against seeking a perfect fit off the rack. Instead, one should aim to customize even ready-to-wear garments, like T-shirts, for a perfect fit. Kotb concludes with the statement, “style don’t have no size.”
The journey to elevate one’s personal appearance is a dance between understanding your own body and the skillful hands of a tailor. And in this dance, remember – style, much like personal appearance, is boundless in its ability to express individuality.
