When you find the silhouettes and combinations that look like you, feel like you, make you feel comfortable you score. You have found your key easy pieces. A crisp white shirt, slouchy t-shirt, great fitting simple trousers, slouchy soft leather biker jacket, chunky ankle boots, and you are done. You can build on them and use them as your base uniform.
Find the lipstick colour that is yours, that makes you feel powerful. No one knows how little sleep you got if you put on your sunglasses and that great lipstick. Buy multiples in case it is discontinued.
When you have a new fashion piece and you are trying to decide how to wear it, go back to your key pieces and style it right in. Mix in unusual pairings – asymmetric jersey dress with the biker jacket, denim shirt paired with a serious skirt and chunky ankle boots.
By developing your own key pieces, you will soon discern which new trends are right for your own style aesthetic and which trends to enjoy on other people.
When a women is confident and comfortable, she presents herself in a powerful way. Who doesn’t love that?
