When she’s not working with big names like Lupita Nyong’o, Jennifer Hudson and Hilary Swank, celebrity stylist Micaela Erlanger also divulges her fashion expertise in our Ask a Stylist column. From the best places to source vintage to the secret to finding your most flattering jeans, come back each week for a professional’s perspective.

The most common style mistake I see all the time is actually so easy to avoid. It comes down to knowing your proportions and knowing how clothing fits your body. Whether your clothes are too big or too small, the number one way to look your best is to pay attention to how clothing fits your body. I always recommend to my clients to find a local tailor that’s not too expensive and take the extra time to alter the wardrobe items they wear the most to perfectly fit their figure. It makes all the difference, I promise. And if you need tips on what you should always tailor (and what you can avoid), check out the WWW guide right here.
