How you present, yourself speaks before you do. Great style isn’t about spending lots of money, but it is wise to make better choices when you shop and as you get dressed.
A thoughtfully curated wardrobe certainly makes it easier to get dressed successfully. When I am confident, comfortable, and appropriate, I consider the look successful.
Below are some of the styling points that help me achieve my style goals.
- Quality over Quantity. It is far better to have one good pale gray cashmere sweater than ten poor quality ones that pill, fade, and lose their shape. One dark wash pair of great fitting jeans will always make me look better than shredded faded ones.
- Timeless over trendy. A classic pale blue cotton shirt can be worn all year round and in a variety of ways. A bright floral cold shoulder shirt with sequins cannot.
- Balance your look with your shape. When I wear a loose-fitting long top, I appear to be wearing a tent. More fitted shirts that stop at the hip bone are a far better choice for me.
- Neutral, classic clothing with accessories that personalized my look is the magic formula. Wearing neutral solid colors and adding the pizzaz with a colorful patterned scarf or a dramatic jewelry piece works well.
