WHEN IN DOUBT (OVER)DRESS
If you are ever unsure about what to wear, think about your destination and the people you will be meeting. If in doubt, go more formal. You don’t want to look too formal if you are worried about your appearance. To give your look an effortlessly chic touch, add a casual layer such as a jean jacket or cargo jacket.” Angela G., stylist
STOP COMFORT ZONES
It’s never a bad idea to try something different. You can try something new, whether it’s a bold new color or a shift in your style from skinny jeans to boyfriend-style pants. You never know what new trends you might love.” — Jennifer M., stylist
“Try to wear at most one accessory. It can be a statement necklace or a bag with a pop of color or great earrings, but it doesn’t matter. An accessory that stands out can transform an outfit from boring to outstanding in seconds.
CRAFT A CAPSULE WARDROBE
A capsule wardrobe is a stylist’s secret weapon. A wardrobe that is easily mixed and matched can make your morning easier. “Invest in timeless classics like great jeans, simple LBDs and timeless jewelry.
TRY A STATEMENT SHOE
“When it comes footwear, color, pattern, and style pack a huge aesthetic punch-and they don’t have to be high heels either. Flats can make the exact same statement and your feet won’t mind. Even if you don’t have a formal look, a printed flat or a bright-colored wedge can make it seem more planned.” Jennifer M., stylist.
OWN AT LEAST ONE CONVERSATION PIECE
Every once in a while, you need the “wow” factor. You need something to show off your style, whether it’s a pair of amazing boots that go over the knee, a vintage dress you borrowed from your mom, or a handbag.
LEARN MORE ABOUT YOUR BODY SHAPE
“The golden rule for stylish women?” Fit first. Knowing your body shape is crucial. If you are a petite pear shape, do you prefer to show off your shoulders? “Stylist Crista G.: Build your closet with clothes that highlight your shape and favorite features.”
AGE IS NOT A NUMBER
“Don’t let that number stop you from trying out a new style or wearing a piece that grabs your attention. Are you 62 years old and want to wear a pair of boyfriend jeans with your style? It’s possible! Are you 22 years old and looking to transform your closet into a business-first, buttoned-up space? “Button it up!” –Stylist Megan S.
