Mother knows best, right? As much as we don’t like to admit it, mom is usually correct on most occasions — especially in hindsight. Here are 10 style lessons you’ve likely heard on more than one occasion that prove she really does know a thing or two about style.
1. Size doesn’t matter
Well, at least not when it comes to the number on the back of your garments. By now, it’s widely acknowledged vanity sizing is an epidemic in the fashion industry — meaning there is no consistency in sizing from retailer to retailer. You may be a size four in a mainstream American retailer and a size eight in a high-end European brand.
Like your mom said, you’re not wearing your clothes inside out. No one cares what the tag says — and neither should you. Don’t force a size that doesn’t suit you. You’ll be far better off to go for the right fit no matter what number it is.
