Here are 10 quick tips for helping you to cultivate your own personal style.

1. Just like actors in movies and TV shows, the clothes you wear help to define your personality or character to those around you. Knowing the “character” you’re trying to portray is a great first step in identifying your signature style.

2. You don’t need to follow every new trend to be fashionable. Find the ones that work with your style and for your personality.

3. Be consistent in your style choices but always modern.

4. Your hair style is just as much a part of your signature style as are your clothes. Learn to work with it rather than against it.

5. Style is not just in what you wear, it’s in the music you listen to, the perfume you choose, the way you hold yourself and an overall “life style” that you portray.

6. Don’t be afraid to experiment. Just because something didn’t work on you in the 70’s, doesn’t mean it won’t look great on you now {I’m talking to you MOM!} Fabrics have changed. The way you wear it has changed and yes, your body has even changed.

7. Look for clothes that you don’t have to worry about, fuss with or pull up all the time or twist back to position. This fidgeting with your outfit strips your confidence and your goal to be effortlessly chic.

8. If you find something that works great on your body shape and makes you feel confident, stock up on that item and allow it to be your go-to piece when in a hurry.

9. Dress for your body shape. Always find a way to flaunt your assets and disguise your flaws. No matter how much style you have, if you’re not dressing your body correctly for your shape, all your hard work and creativity will be lost.

10. Most importantly, wear what makes you happy and leave the house confident and ready to take on the world!
