Ramp Up Your Personal Style

Personal Style

Have you found yourself grabbing for your college sweat all too often?  The quest for comfort does not trump the desire for style. You can accomplish both without resorting to pieces in your wardrobe that have been through the wash for years and years. Save your college sweats for a rainy Sunday afternoon. Many people have inertia towards discovering their unique style grounded in an unfounded assumption that a large budget, personal designer and perfect figure are necessary to achieve desirable results. Nothing could be further from the truth. Great style can certainly be achieved on a small budget with a little creativity. Celebrate who you are today and wrap yourself in garments that speak to the best in you. Remember that the most important things to wear at all times are a genuine smile and quiet self-confidence. Follow these recommendations from the professional stylist to jump start your quest for defining your personal style.

The first step is the most difficult for many. Plan to spend an afternoon going through your closet and drawers. Be honest with yourself as you start this project. If you have not worn a piece in over a year, place it in a pile to either be donated, discarded or consigned. Don’t torture yourself by hanging onto pieces that may fit once you lose that last five pounds. Even when you do lose the weight, you won’t be interested in wearing that piece.

Wardrobe anchors are classic pieces that wear well from year to year and can be combined with other pieces in your wardrobe. Your classic pieces should include a well-tailored jacket in a solid darker color as well as trousers from a quality fabric that have a nice drape. An A-line skit should be the third anchor piece to your wardrobe. These three pieces will allow you to mix and match for most every occasion. Take advantage of the awesome deals offered by Groupon coupons and check out the great classic shoes styles offered by Toms.  A great way to jazz up any outfit without breaking the bank is with the addition of accessories. Scarves, fun jewelry and handbags can reflect the newest styles on the market that are both appeal and flattering to your personal style. Best of luck on your journey to ramp up your personal style!
