How to Dress Better: Discover Your Signature Style
Your Signature Style…
In fashion, the phrase “Signature Style” gets thrown around a lot.
True, your personal style may be similar to someone else’s, but how you choose to represent yourself really is as unique as your signature.
But is your signature today the same as it was in high school? Still dot your i’s with hearts?
Just like handwriting, style evolves.
Your experiences shape your style. Where you’ve lived, or worked, or travelled all have an influence on you. And perhaps you’ve been through the biggest life changing experience of all: Motherhood.
Whether your body has changed or not, you’ve grown. You don’t necessarily want the same things. You have different responsibilities, different experiences, not to mention different errands (oh so many errands!) than you did when you were younger.
Maybe you left the office to work from home instead. At first, it was great leaving behind the constricting work clothes, but now you miss the polished, dressed up you.
Maybe you’ve embraced those comfortable pandemic outfits and will never go back to restrictive clothes. But you’d like to look a little more put together. “Comfortable” can so easily slip into “dumpy”
No matter your circumstances, much of what once worked, no longer does.
Your style and what you choose to wear reflects who you are right now. The question is: Do you like the reflection you see?
Clothes can make us feel something. How do you feel in a cozy cardigan? A sharp, skirt suit? A girly, floral dress? How do old jean shorts and a broken in tee make you feel? Your answers to each of these could be very different from someone else’s.
It’s time to step back and get a fresh mind set. Yes, you’ve changed, but you aren’t just Mama or just the woman who works so hard, and “the you” you love is still in there.
A Style All Your Own…
Your Signature Style isn’t just about which fashion styles you like. It’s also about which pieces within that fashion style flatter you most.
It’s a combination of the looks you admire that feel most like you, the things that flatter your shape and your coloring, and are appropriate for the places you go and the things you do.
Style can be learned. And you are qualified to learn it because you are the expert on you. You are the expert on what you like and why.
In fact, you already have a signature style. It just hasn’t been collected, organized, and refined yet.
You MUST have an understanding of it, BEFORE you edit your closet, throw away anything, or shop for One. More. Thing.
