Shopping Tips from Robert Berry
  • Invest in pieces that are timeless and flattering to many figures. Instead of wearing your work or everyday coat out in the evening, purchase a very special "go to" coat that will complete a look. Too often a beautiful dress or outfit is spoiled by an ordinary piece of outerwear.

  • Invest in a versatile little jacket that can go from the office to dinner or party (such as a wool boucle jacket).

  • Put a modern twist on the LBD by playing with different textures of black within the same garment.

  • Color block to divide the body in a flattering way with belts and textures.

  • Test garments for quality: examine the inside as well as the outside, buttons, closures and seaming.

  • Alterations will make a huge difference in your satisfaction with clothing.
