Following fashion trends is fine as long as those trends work for you. Not everyone is going to look well or feel comfortable in last Fall’s big trend over-the-knee boots. Fashion is the palette we chose from. Style is what and how we wear fashion that makes it our own.
Find A Muse
Look for styling inspiration from people you see on the street or simply open pinterest and search using tags like #best #street #style. If you like the look of someone like Audrey Hepburn then search #audrey #hepburn #style. There are always subtleties that you can mimic in your day-to-day look from classic style icons.
Find A Great Tailor
You can have the most expensive wardrobe on the planet but if it doesn’t fit properly it will just make you and your outfit look sloppy. If you don’t have a tailor ask a friend for a referral. And never take your most beloved garments to a tailor you have not vetted before.
Find The Colors That Are Right For You
Getting your colors done is so yesterday but it was a good exercise in understanding the power of color. The problem with the color card method is that it left us fixated on finding that perfect shade of purple. There is so much variation in each color that finding an exact match from a tiny color card left no room for adventure. Trust in colors you know look well on you and then experiment with those hues.
Find A Go-To Outfit
Your understated go-to outfit should be something in neutral colors that you can always jazz up by adding accents like a colorful scarf or other fantastic accessories. Your understated go-to outfit is important because there will be days when you need to get ready in a pinch, look confident and chic without thinking about it.
