An experience that evokes agony or ecstasy, regret or satisfaction, shopping for clothes is something we all have to do. After decades of dressing people for a living, I’ve learned a few things that can help to heighten your experience while keeping you sane.

Know your body type. Sometimes this is tricky because some of us tend to focus entirely on our flaws, which leads to a distorted sense of our shape. But knowing how to wear what’s right for your body type is essential to making it look its best. Attend a workshop or catch a fashion makeover show to learn the basics. Read more

Fall trendsGet in on the fashion scene with the latest must-haves.
