Keep reading to learn how to fall in love with your wardrobe and own your style!
Honor who you have become and clear your closet of clothes that no longer serve you. You cannot see the good items you have because many times, you are digging through unnecessary junk to find them. When you clear the clutter–you’re able to get dressed much faster and easier in the morning because you’re not wasting time looking at dated, worn out, or ill-fitted clothing. No more hanging on to items that no longer fit you, excite you, speak to you, or represent you!
Once you get rid of everything you no longer want or need–fill your closet with items you LOVE! Stop settling at retail! When you purchase an item feeling like “It will do”, that is how you will feel when you wear it. At any given time, our bodies are covered in 80% clothing. Our appearance is the largest communication tool we have. Therefore, purchase items that feel good against your skin and have the details you love.
It is very important to wear the right shades of colors specific to YOU. A red is not just a red, and a green is not just a green. It’s important that we wear the shades that compliment us based on our skin tone, hair, eyes, and even personalities. Yep, your personality matters! Color says a lot about who we are and simply wearing a color we love can improve our mood and boost our confidence!
Early in my career, I was a technical design assistant and my job was to develop patterns for huge production runs overseas. One thing I can tell you for certain is that no two designers cut their garments the same. Therefore, every time you think there is something wrong with your body, please hear me say, “IT’S NOT YOU GIRL, IT’S THE CLOTHES!”. It’s extremely helpful to have a go-to tailor to make the minor adjustments you need to feel secure and confident in your clothes. Don’t you feel so much better when you know your underwear isn’t showing because the waist of your garment fits perfectly? I know I do!
Loving our image and style takes time and practice. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different looks and colors to figure out what makes you look and feel your best! These tips will help you get closer to falling in love with your wardrobe and owning your image and style.
