As my fashion consultanting business grows, I’ve noticed one thing. My clients (in the beginning) are excited about their new look and the great feeling about self that it brings but when they actually try on the clothing there’s always a wall that they must conquer before the breakthrough to their improved self. A sense of doubt is what I’ll call it. Sometimes we think our clothing is the problem but style goes far beyond what we can see.
The body is only considered the coat rack in this case when referring to style. We can only pull off looks that we believe in. What do I mean? Well we have to first feel good, knowing that clothes are what we make them and never the opposite. It doesn’t take a celebrity to pull off great fashion but a person the mentality of a winner. Think of the feeling that 1st place brings, it’s great right? Well we must grasp that same feeling as we walk through everyday life… In style that is.
As a fashion stylist, dressing up makes me feel like I’m at my best because it expresses exactly who I am without saying a word…I tend to dress how I feel. I don’t mean when I’m up or down but the person that I want to be in that moment. No says become bipolar! When I feel like my executive self I wear clothing inspired by menswear such as brogue shoes. Women are executives too, sometimes I wear nude pumps or a pencil skirt as well.I’m not saying that’s what all executives wear but that’s my look of an executive. Other days I feel care free and happy and those emotions call for lace up sandals, and fringe. Your style is exactly what you make it, not the money that you may or may not have.
High-low has become a very popular way of styling but I say forget popularity, it’s simply smart. I love pairing Chanel with Forever 21, H&M, and sometimes Zara! If you can something close to your dream designer collection, why not buy it if buying the original isn’t in your budget. Style your outfit just like the image in the look ok but the only difference would be the money that you saved in your pocket or purse…whatever you get the point.
The point of all of the jabber is own the style that you want and wear it without the presence of doubt. Your days will be go by exactly the way you want them to when you tweak your style mentality.
