|What I tend to think...|
|What I end up doing the majority of the time...|
These are my interpretations of each of the style personalities!
*have your dressing down to a science
*stick to brands you know and love
*have a knack for mixing and matching your wardrobe pieces but mostly in a neutral color palette
Your lack of variety can cause you to become bored with your closet
Splurge on a minimalist cut that has a beautiful silhouette that you'll end wearing for years to come.
Accessories to add dimension to your look
Focus on purchasing different parts of the outfit at a variety of times that way you don't get overwhelmed while adding to your closet.
* have style that is constantly evolving
*have the ability to create outfits from layering & finding different silhouettes
*feel like fashion is another extension of your ability to express yourself
*constantly return items because that leopard print wasn't quite the quality you hoped for
Being too on trend may lead to fashion faux pas
Take the time to invest in pieces that will wear well and for a long time.
If you're still apt to do a lot of online shopping, find sites that offer free shipping and returns because odds are you'll be doing a lot of returning
When that trendy piece goes on sale.
Start paying attention to when you favorite brands/sites have sales and wait to make that purchase.
Search the pre-owned and loved market for those expensive pieces - odds are you'll be able to find them for a fraction of the price.
* choose quality over quantity
*often look expensive
*hunt down the latest fashion trends straight from the runway
The clothes could end up wearing you if you're not careful
Create a hard to forget look by mixing high & low priced items
Become really good friends with sales associates and never be afraid to ask when that piece you've been lusting over will finally go on sale
Lesser known designers that have a similar look and feel to your favorite high end designers
Elegant pieces that are easily transitioned from day to night
The Accessories Maven
* have the ability to change an outfit with shoes, bags & jewelry
*take a boring t-shirt & jeans look and transform it into a Pinterest worthy outfit
*have an abundant number of ways to transform a look
Too much can end up looking kitschy
When in doubt - go with the less is more approach and take one piece of jewelry off before leaving
Know when to splurge and when to save - that statement necklace and midi ring are prime examples
Expensive pieces should be worn countless way and for many years
A great organization system for all your accessories from shoes to bags
Personally I'm a mix of all four of these with emphasis on being a minimalist!! Definitely something I've been working on as every morning I feel like I'm staring it to a dark hole of nothingness...I think the phrase we've all uttered " I have NOTHING to wear!" I've been making a conscious effort to buy pieces that will work with items that are already in my closet!!
