Don’t Let the Trends Wear You
Keeping up with the trends each season goes a long way with keeping your wardrobe looking fresh and modern, and prevents you from looking dated and frumpy. Skip a few seasons and suddenly you begin to fall into a rut, feel matronly and not nearly as chic and contemporary as you would like to be.
Embracing the trends each season isn’t at all about being dictated to, and it’s certainly NOT about looking like the latest fashion victim. I want to encourage you to keep an eye on the trends and then use them merely as suggestions for what you could bring into your wardrobe.
The good news about the trends is that each season there are a variety of options. There is no one color or trend that is going to look gorgeous on everyone, so fortunately we have many options from which to choose. Never are all the trends meant to be worn by one woman – different looks, colors and styles are offered in a smorgasbord that is yours for the taking, choosing thoughtfully and carefully, those which quicken your pulse and inspire your imagination.
Each season there are specific colors touted as the hottest shades. I encourage you to use these as a guideline for what you can bring into your wardrobe to make small tweaks that bring it current. But please, if these shades do not flatter your personal coloring, don’t wear them. Instead, find an alternative in a similar shade that brings out your individual beauty and makes you shine! No one looks good when wearing the wrong colors, whether it’s the hottest hue or not.
Another thing to keep in mind when looking at the trends is how they’ll work for you. If something catches your eye and resonates with you, chances are it’s a good place to start when shopping for new items to work into your existing wardrobe. I want you to feel empowered to choose trends that are right for you rather than feel compelled to rush out and purchase a whole new look each season. Creating your own personal style is about dressing yourself from the inside out. When you dress for who you are on the inside, it creates a connection with what’s on the outside and you create authenticity. This authenticity lets your true colors shine through and helps you to bring out your best self. You are unique, and dressing for the wonderful individual you are can help you to feel empowered to be more yourself and to go for what you want out of life!
You may be thinking to yourself, “I’m not sure what my style is. How do I know what’s right for me?” Well, I have two answers to that. The first is trial and error, spending a lot of time and money guessing what works for you but not really knowing for sure. Chances are this option will leave you with items hanging in your closet that you never even leave the house in, and still have the tags on them a year later. This option is also expensive and frustrating.
Your other option is my StyleFinder ID® System. I created this exactly for women like you who have lost touch with your style over the years, never really knew what your style was or are ready to redefine your style to feel more like you! The StyleFinder ID® System will help you to pinpoint exactly what your style is and what the most important elements are that MUST be present every day for you to feel more like yourself.
If you’ve lost touch with your style, chances are you’re not dressing in a way that connects who you are on the inside to the outer expression of your style. This leads to feeling uncomfortable in your own skin, as well as to not being at your very best. When you discover your StyleFinder ID®, you’re empowered to create a style that is authentic and you feel great in, each and every day.
