Do you find yourself resorting to the same outfit combination or look every day?
Is it a problem or a solution?
In the past everyone dressed for every event, people changed their clothes several times daily, many events REQUIRED the donning of appropriate clothes, such as dinner at a nice restaurant where men wore a suit jacket and tie and women a dress.
Things are very different now, what was considered athletic clothing 20 years ago is now acceptable just about anywhere, black tie is a suggestion rather than a requirement.
In many ways the relaxed approach has been a blessing, extensive wardrobes of occasion specific outfits are history, dressing has veered favor of a simpler approach, stylish separates and multi-purpose pieces are the core of most people’s wardrobes.
If find yourself wearing the same thing every day you may have fallen into the trap of the uniform, an unvarying combination that keeps you from having to make a daily style choice. This is different to an outfit that is a personal style choice that expresses your personal style i.e. Steve Jobs’ black turtleneck and jeans, Karl Lagerfeld’s stiff collars and black gloves and Hillary Clinton’s famous pantsuits.
Men seem to do better with a simple uniform-like clothing option; sometimes their personal style can only be expressed in the choice of a watch or lapel size. For women, particularly busy women, the uniform can be a real trap, those lululemons and sneakers are comfortable and easy, but can really take the excitement out of one’s look.
The art of dressing lies in transforming the uniform into a great personal style, and this transformation can require a second set of eyes (mine!) to assist the metamorphosis. I can help you out of the uniform rut and help you create your personal style. You’ll still have the outfit combinations that suit your lifestyle and comfort level, but with that added panache that transforms the look to personal style.
