|Jess’ brother Stephen, pre-makeover
Years later I still love dress up and jokingly told Lindsey we should give my brother, Stephen, a “man makeover” during our fall fashion theme. When I half-heartedly made the comment to my brother, he surprised me with his willingness to agree. He said the timing was right as he was in need of some new clothes and would go along with my “project.”
|Stephen has a lot of brown shirts and jeans
We started the project in the most basic way possible. We made Stephen bring over all his clothes and try them on for us so we could get a feel for what was going on with his current style. He could talk to us about what he liked about it and what he was looking to change. From this we realized two main things to focus on. The first was that Stephen was wearing shirts that did not fit him properly. They were too baggy and we explained that the seam on the shoulder should actually hit the shoulder. By wearing the looser clothes he was appearing to be a larger guy, rather than the leaner build he has. The second was that Stephen needed more color in his look. He had almost exclusively brown and black. It was a shame for him not to be utilizing color to make his blue eyes pop.
|Stephen also has a lot of dark collared shirts!
Tune in tomorrow for part two of our makeover story and Stephen’s big reveal.
