ramp up your personal style
Have you found yourself spending a bit too much time in the comfort of your college sweatpants and sweatshirts? It’s human nature to desire comfort and we often find that in our well-worn and well-washed favorites. The down side is a nearly total lack of fashion. Contrary to popular belief, fashion and comfort can indeed go hand in hand! You don’t need an unlimited budget or the expensive services of a personal stylist to ramp up your personal sense of style. Follow these recommendations from the fashion gurus to get started. There’s no better time than today! Do you work in an office? Do you frequently participate in sports? Are you home raising a family? Whatever the circumstances are of your lifestyle, you can develop a basic wardrobe that works well with your ever changing needs. The first step is to go through your closet with a sharp eye. So many often lament while staring at a closet full of clothes that they have nothing to wear. If you have not worn a garment in over a year, make arrangements to consign, discard or donate it. Make three piles as you go through your closet. Once it has been pared down, you will have a better idea of your selections. The foundation for any wardrobe is solid anchor prices. A well-tailored jacket, classic trousers from quality fabric and a timeless A-Line skirt are the anchor pieces to your wardrobe. Select these pieces in solid colors that complement one another. These pieces can be worn with a variety of tops, blouses and shirts. They can be dressed up or down and be suitable for nearly every occasion. One of the great ways to begin ramping up your personal style and building on your anchor pieces without breaking the bank is to select from the fabulous variety of fashionable accessories available a nearly every price point. Check out the awesome deals available from Groupon coupons and the huge selection of up to date accessories available from Barneys. Finally, make an appointment with your hair stylist and explore new hairstyles that compliment your features and lifestyle. Experiment with new style options especially if you’ve had the same cut for several years. Remind yourself that it’s just a haircut and will certainly grow out and can be changed over the years. The most important things to wear every day to ramp up your personal style are a genuine smile and quiet self-confidence. Best of luck to you and remember to have fun exploring your personal style!
