Choosing Style Over Fashion
Think about how you would describe your style. Is it cool and casual? Structured and chic?
Ladies, when it comes to style, Ralph Lauren said it best:
For so many of us, style is a very important part of our lives. It’s our armor.
It’s the thing that gives us the confidence to rule the boardroom, or step outside our comfort zone and try something new.
Let’s face it, there’s nothing quite like finding an outfit that makes you feel like you can take over the world.
However, it can be easy to confuse style with fashion.
Fashion is all about trends. It’s the looks we see on our favorite celebrities on Instagram and on the runway.
And, no offense to Gigi and Kendall, but these looks come and go.
When thinking about the clothes, accessories and makeup that make you feel your best, blindly subscribing to trends isn’t the way to let your inner beauty shine through.
You don’t have to be the most fashionable person in the room to be inherently stylish. You don’t even have to love shopping either. Just keep it simple!
If a pair low-rise jeans make you feel amazing, rock them. Even if the trend right now is high-rise.
Your “look” should reflect the the beautiful, fabulous and unique person you are inside. It shouldn’t be a last-ditch effort to impress someone, meet expectations or fit a certain mold.
It should be all you. That, my friend, is true style.
As always, here are some things you can do right now to find YOUR style!
- Create a Pinterest board. Find visual inspiration before you hit the stores for a wardrobe overhaul. (You can start here).
- Find a style icon. Whether it’s Kerry Washington or your mom, it’s nice to have a source for style inspiration!
- Shop in your own closet. Is there something in there that just isn’t you? Toss it out and make room only for pieces you love.
Happy shopping, girlfriend!
