Ramp Up Your Personal Style

Are you attending a wedding, reunion or special celebration in the coming months? Perhaps you’re planning a career or job change.  Life events often make us aware of our personal style and any ruts we may have fallen prey to over the years. Congratulations are in order if your waist size is the same since high school; if your hair style is the same, congratulations are not in order. See this as an opportunity to take stock and ramp up your personal style. Consider this a time to celebrate you. You don’t need an unlimited budget for designer clothes or a personal stylist to enhance your personal style. Follow these recommendations from professional stylists and wardrobe consultants to uncover your personal style.

The first step is to go through your closet. If you have not worn a garment in over a year, place it in a pile for donation or a pile for consignment. Don’t torture yourself by hanging on to pieces that are too small. When you lose the extra weight, you certainly won’t want to wear them again. Identify anchor pieces in your wardrobe. Well-tailored jackets and quality trousers or an A-line skirt can be the basis for just about any outfit. The key to jazzing up any outfit on a budget is by the smart use of accessories. Scarves, jewelry and handbags can enhance any outfit without breaking the bank. Take advantage of the awesome deals offered by  Groupon coupons an select from the fun fashions available at  Hot Topic. Don’t fall prey to every fashion craze. Another rule of thumb is to purchase clothing that fits properly. Wearing oversized clothes in attempt to hide a few extra pounds only succeeds in making you look oversized. The same goes for selecting clothing that is age appropriate. Avoid pieces that are better suited for your daughter or mother.

Schedule an appointment with your hair stylist. Spend extra time during the consultation to explore updated cuts that work with your hair type, enhance your features and fit with your lifestyle. Remind yourself that it’s just a haircut that can grow out if you’re not satisfied. You’re not selecting a baby’s name. Head over to the cosmetics counter at your local department store or beauty supply store and spend time with a professional cosmetologist. Experiment with new make-up techniques and products. You’ll be surprised at how a few application tricks can enhance your look. Remember that the most important things to wear everyday are a genuine smile and quiet self-confidence. Enjoy the journey and enjoy the results!…
