Discovering What to Wear For Fall
Happy Fall Everyone,
I hope this finds you deep into your fall wardrobe whether it is exploring new pieces or recreating old treasures! In either case embellish this time of year because you can really make a statement about who you are by the way you dress.
Coco Chanel once said “Fashion is architecture: it is a matter of proportions.“ I totally agree with this as I truly believe there is something fashion wise that can make everyone feel beautiful. It doesn’t have to be frilly, it doesn’t have to be trendy but, it must fit who you are and your “architecture.”
There are two essential rules of thumb when it comes to what you wear:
- You need to know how you are physically proportioned
- What looks great on you.
When you have identified and practice these two guidelines, you are on your way to many fashion compliments. To expand on this, know your shape; are you a pear shape, tall and thin or maybe an hour glass. Once you capture this, you always want to extenuate your best feature, if you have a tiny waist show that waist off! If you have great legs then put them to work in a lovely dress or skirt and pop on some heels. If you have problem areas learn how to disguise them. Muffin tops should not wear tight tops but instead something that is a little looser in the midriff area.
What do you enjoy wearing, identify your best colors and what you are comfortable in. Do you like bright vibrant hues or do you gravitate to black and navy? Do you accessorize or is that too much effort to pull that together? Think about this for a moment, you know what you like when it comes to nail color, you know what hair style you think becomes you, have you really spent sometime in knowing what makes you lovely in your dressing apparel???
This February I will be doing fashion workshops on the “Do’s and Don’ts” of what you should wear and how to “Accentuate the Positive and Eliminate the Negative.” I will be sharing more information on that after the holidays. In the meantime reflect on my above statements and see if they help.
Also, email me and let me know fashion topics or tips you might be interested in, I would love to hear from you!
In closing I would like to share what Joan Gustafson a recent client of mine expressed about her shopping experience: “I feel great in my new clothes and have gotten many compliments. They fit perfectly and look so nice. I have never done anything like that for myself in my life! It was a glorious experience and it makes me feel like I can conquer the world………or maybe a little part of it!”
Take time for your self ladies, you are your best investment! Remember too, “Accentuate the Positive and Eliminate the Negative!”
