Although your best style may feel like some nebulous thing that’s hard to pin down, it’s actually just the combination of a few key elements. Think about the women you know (either personally or from the media) who consistently show up and make you take notice. It’s usually not only about the clothes they wear. It’s how they wear it. And this know-how of head-turning style relies on three things that when brought together seamlessly, create your best style.
This is about self awareness. By knowing who you are, you’re better equipped to state yourself stylistically. On one level, it’s knowing your preferences – what you love and what you dislike- which shape your taste. But on a deeper level, it’s about knowing what makes you feel good, and how to access that. Your style is the outer reflection of the inner so the more you are in touch with how you want to be, the easier it is to dress for that.
My favorite ways to KNOW IT:
This is about body confidence. Once we feel comfortable in our skin, we can move through life with ease. And in order to do this, we must go beyond accepting our bodies to taking pride in what our bodies enable us to do. Whether it’s feeling strong, or sexy, your body confidence carries over into all aspects of your life, and will set the foundation for how you wear your clothes.
This is what helps me OWN IT:
This is about being you. Forget the rules and what anyone has ever said about how you should look. Authenticity is the way to go when it comes to creating style. So when putting together your looks, don’t overthink it. Go for the feel – what feels like you and conveys who you are. This is what adds the unexpected to your best style, and makes it uniquely yours.
Here’s how I LIVE IT:
So as you see, the heart of style goes beyond the clothes we wear. It’s who we are, and how we move through life. With self awareness, confidence and authenticity, you can turn any old wardrobe into one that speaks your best style.
