Creating Your Signature Wardrobe Style

What sets an outfit apart and makes it fabulous and what makes it boring is a question I often get from clients. Ordinary outfits often can be transformed by adding an item that you have selected and developed as part of your signature style. Your special twist.

That takes the ordinary outfit and makes it extraordinary giving you the confidence boost to face your day.

It might be the accessories, your special color combinations, the way you wear your clothing or the style of the clothing wardrobe that really enhances your particular frame, height or coloring.

While putting an outfit together can be a frustration for many, with the right frame of mind and being pointed in the right direction for you personally, it can be an outlet of creative expression and take your wardrobe to new levels. If you have a core of wardrobe pieces that are your worker items, you can add to them to create new looks that stay fashion fresh and current to the trends plus have your unique spin without spending a lot of extra on clothing each season.

Add to your core basics:
Pops of unexpected color. Play with the newest colors on the fashion scene and see if you can add them to your core style in unexpected ways.

Add accessories for an opportunity to create a style twist for your current wardrobe. Expressing yourself as only you can do will help you create new combinations in your wardrobe that are unique to you and stand out for all of the right reasons.

Wear your items in unexpected ways or combined them in unexpected ways. This can breathe life into your current wardrobe and give you added mileage for your core wardrobe pieces. Ask yourself, what could I do to add or change the basic pieces I put on to give them a fresh new look.

Then try out several new ideas so you can get a feel if you really would wear them together or not. Spend a bit of time when you are not rushed with trying to get out the door to work and see what new ideas you can find. Jot them down in a notebook so when you want to recall them you remember the pieces you put together. Be sure to add shoes and jewelry and your handbag to the total recipe for the new outfit.

Signature wardrobe items that help you express who you are should be worn or added on a regular basis so your audience-everyone you see regularly-sees you as consistent in your style of dressing.

The level of confidence that this will add to your life can be quite amazing and you will be able to face the world on a moments notice because you spent some time creating the looks in your wardrobe that you feel represent who you are when you wear them.

Watch that you are not hohum one day and fabulous the next because that will confuse your audience. Signature style in your wardrobe is easy to create with a bit of attention on your part to the details that you feel make a statement about you to those you meet.

Most loved playing dress-up when we were kids so think of this as a grown up version of playing dress-up. Your signature wardrobe that makes a statement about who you are will be your reward for the time you spend playing.
