My Clothes are Wrinkled!

Vertically wrinkled shirt too big

March 28, 2022

I’m Abby!.
I'm a certified & published fashion stylist located in Silicon Valley with speciality in personal styling, color analysis and runway, commercial, and editorial styling.

Clothes should fit over the body without wrinkles or pulls. 

What do these WRINKLES mean?
  • Wrinkles are a main indicator of fit
  • Sometimes wrinkles can be caused by posture; but usually it’s because the garment is TOO TIGHT, TOO LOOSE, OR the WRONG SHAPE FOR YOUR BODY. 
      • Horizontal wrinkles: thigh area = not enough fabric torso = garment is too long Horizontal wrinkles on jeans too small
      • Vertical wrinkles: running up and down the body = garment is too short or too wide Vertically wrinkled shirt too big
      • Diagonal wrinkles: check to see if darts can be adjusted; otherwise, it’s a size issue Diagonal wrinkles on shirt too big
When Trying Clothes on:
  • Check the front and back view for wrinkling, pulling, and gathering.
How do I fix them?
  • If it can’t be ironed out then it needs to be altered in some way.
