Tim Gunn gives fashion advice to aspiring designers every week on "Project Runway" -- but in next month's Redbook, he's got some for everyone else.
Tim's rules for the everyday woman:
1. Silhouette: "When getting dressed, think of your body as a series of thirds; the worst thing you can do is cut yourself in half. Pair a top that ends at your waist (one third) with long pants (two thirds), or wear a knee-length dress that goes no longer than the bottom of your kneecap."
2. Proportion: "If you have something loose and blousy on top, whatever you wear below should be sleek and well fitted to serve as a counterpoint, and vice versa."
3. Fit: "Most women wear clothes that are too big – that's the comfort trap. Women don't want to feel constrained, but I say, if you want to dress to feel as though you never got out of bed, then don't."
