Ever spotted Jennifer Aniston in the pages of Us Weekly and thought, How the heck does she look that good in jeans and a white tee? Here’s the secret (besides round-the-clock Pilates): Tailoring. Yep, celebrities tailor everything.
But get this: You can take it even further. Entering PIOL.
Instead of taking your Zara dress to the neighborhood tailor, you can have dress company PIOL create a made-to-measure frock in a color that’s perfect for you.
Here’s how it works: Visit the site and fill in the color of your hair, eyes and skin. This determines your color aura--the four colors that complement you best (tuck this info away, ladies). PIOL then takes said color way and creates a palette of 45 fabric swatches for you to choose from. Scroll through the fabrics to find your favorite. (We picked a solid apricot hue in a matte stretch fabric.)
Next, select a silhouette. Out of the five classic options, we chose a sleeveless boat-neck shift, with a mid mini skirt (but that’s just us). Finally, enter your measurements and--voilà--you’re done.
Our custom dress arrived in the mail a few weeks later--and let’s just say, Jen, we get it. And although the price was steep ($545), we can already tell that the cost per wear will be well worth the investment.
