Guiding Principles for Personal Style

  • Style is not about beauty, age, size, wealth or even fashion; it is about knowing yourself and having the confidence to project your own unique style in a consistent and confident manner.
  • Insist on a good fit. Alterations are the rule, not the exception. The most wonderful garment will not look good if it doesn’t fit you well.
  • Think outfit; not item. Put each piece in the context of your wardrobe and lifestyle and accessorize it.
  • Buy the best you can afford,. You don’t need a lot of clothing when you have the right pieces.
  • Take it one step at a time. A wardrobe is built over time, not over night.
  • A great visual image increases self-esteem: when you know you look your best, you will walk, talk and even think differently and others will respond accordingly.
