Looking and feeling your best is not just for occasional events like Christmas, birthdays, date nights and so on. It’s about looking and feeling fabulous 365 days of the year.
After reading this statement some of you may be experiencing the voices in your head saying “Well that’s just great!” or “That’s easy for you to say, you’re a stylist” or “ I don’t have the budget to go shopping often “ or a common one amongst my clients is “I don’t have time for that” and “ I have kids to provide for.”
Well the good news is that those voices in your head can be quickly shut down with one simple sentence…”I am worthy”.
It is the worth we place on ourselves that either has us making excuses for the way we dress or not. It either has us looking and feeling our best always or not. Today I am going to add tremendous value to help you style yourselves better.
How do you know what suits your body shape?
Do you ever feel confused about which clothes are appropriate for your age?
Do you have a wardrobe full of clothes and constantly say “I have nothing to wear”?
I find it interesting how, as women, we often down-play all that we do and often forget to celebrate the beauty and magnificence of self. It’s something I am curious about. WHY? Is it something we learned from society? Is this mindset passed down from generations to generations? Or is it totally made-up by us to allow ourselves to ‘fit in’ with a particular tribe?
In this article I want to take a look at what really matters when it comes to your style. I am going to personally gift you my top 3 x ‘Styling Secrets Unlocked’. I know that when you implement these styling secrets, you will dramatically change the outcome of your shopping experiences.
These 3 x ’Styling Secrets Unlocked’ were voted by my clients to be gifted to you. These are the ones my clients find to be their favourites and ones that replaced those ‘negative Nelly’ voices in their heads.
My top 3 Styling Tips, as voted by my clients are…
Identify 3 key Attributes.
It’s a fact that women distort the truth about their bodies 30-40% towards the negative. When you next look in the mirror, identify 3 areas of your body that you love. When you work with highlighting these areas, your confidence soars and you begin to see what the world sees we they look at you. By working with your attributes you embrace what you have. It’s as the saying goes ‘What you focus on is what you get’.
Now ladies, this is one your partners will love… I call it “Smart Shopping”.
One dress for every season and never look the same twice. I educate my clients that less is more. Invest in good wardrobe pieces (i.e., a little black dress) and learn the art of accessorizing. One dress with different shoes, bags and accessories will change an entire outfit, look and style. It’s also a great tip for those of you who travel alot.
Location, Location, Location…..
When meeting someone for the first time, we get 3 seconds to make an impression. The subconscious mind quickly sums up if we like or dislike a person. It’s important when making a first impression to do all that you can to create opportunity. Necklace placement can add to this. Ladies remember, where the necklace finishes is where the eye is drawn. If your necklace finishes on your bust line, it will enhance your bust. If it finishes on your décolletage area, the eyes are drawn up and if it finishes under the bust line around your tummy area, that’s where the eye will focus. So highlight the areas you want by locating your necklace in the right place for you. A necklace that is very chunky and blocks your entire décolletage can give the impression that you’re closed off. A necklace that is a statement piece and allows skin to still be seen will have you appear more open in nature.
I trust this has been most valuable, in assisting you with your styling. May your dreams be fulfilled and the magical moments embraced.
