7 Things You Need To Know About Style

7 Things You Need To Know About Style

Most women want to turn heads when walking down the street or walking into a room, or have your friends remark on your astonishing style.  To feel confident, strong and glowing every day. 

The best part is you don’t have to spend a million dollars to feel like a million dollars! 

The secret is having the style knowledge of how to put it all together.  Having a fabulous Style is a skill, not a privilege.

But style does not happen by accident.

Style can't be cut from the pages of a fashion magazine or be purchased at a designer boutique. 

Style does not worry about status.

Style does not diminish with age.

Style is not superficial.

Style is authentic, unique and expansive.

Style is powerful.

When you define your style, you define your life.

Have you ever left the house feeling confident about your look, only to find yourself standing in front of the mirror the next day confused how to recreate that fabulous vibe?

Most people look to celebrities, clothing designers and store mannequins for style guidance. While these can certainly offer inspiration, they cannot replace your own internal style expert. 

Style is a skill. It is a conscious process of self-discovery.

Because Style does not happen by accident.

If your clothes fit you beautifully, create visual balance and show off your feminine shape, you will always look fabulous, no matter what size you are.

 

“If a woman is poorly dressed, you notice the clothes.  If she is impeccably dressed, you notice the woman”

Coco Chanel

To Be Brave Enough To Stand Out In A Crowd

Stylish women are confident enough to wear what they like, even if it is outrageous.  Of course, common sense has to take over at times! An appropriate degree of dress decorum is often required and recommended.

Clothes Are Your Canvas

Stylish women know that clothes are the canvas for their personality. A simple, well-fitting and designed suit in a quality fabric can be more memorable than the latest trend.  Look for clothes that are distinctive and interchangeable.

Owning Clothes That Fit You Perfectly

An inexpensive item of clothing can look more expensive than a designer label that does not fit your body shape.  Stylish women learn to recognise the elements of perfect fit.  Only buy clothes that fit you well on the purchase and that you know you love.

Buying What Suits You 

Being disciplined to only purchase items of clothing that look great on you, you will be rewarded with amazing compliments and feel confident when you see your reflection.

When buying clothes, ask yourself "Does this go with five different items in my wardrobe?  Does this suit my body shape, colour and personality?"

Style Versus Fashion

Style does not equal fashion. A woman dressed head to toe in the latest fashion can look nothing but a mannequin.  Try not to be led to believe that as long as you are wearing the latest style and colours that you have developed your signature style. 

Mindful Accessorising

“Look in the mirror and take something off” ~Coco Chanel

Style is about mindful accessorising and consciously selecting what you put on rather than just piling on the usual assortment of mismatched rings, watch and whatever earring, scarf or necklace that happen to be there.  Never over clutter your appearance with too many accessories.

Style is not:

Looking like everyone else
Squeezing into ill-fitting clothes
Wearing shoes that hurt
Trying too hard to get it right
Wearing clothes that you have to tug and pull at

“While clothes may not make the woman, they certainly have a strong effect on her self-confidence, which I believe does make the woman” ~Mary Kay Ash

 

Style is a skill. It is a conscious process of self-discovery.  Style does not happen by accident, you need to learn what styles suit you from an expert.
