9. Check the Fit
When learning how to build a wardrobe, don't make the mistake of thinking a little bit of snugness or looseness in a garment will be "ok".
Part of being fashion forward means having all your clothes fit your body well and flatter your form!
Find a good tailor or seamstress to let out or take in garments that aren't the proper fit.
This will be the best thing you can do!
