Ramp Up Your Personal Style

Have you fallen into a style rut? Do you find yourself donning the same tired sweatpants and sweatshirt from college? While these pieces might well be among your favorite and no doubt extremely comfortable, there are a myriad of style options available that are both comfortable and flattering for nearly every body type and occasion. You don’t need an unlimited budget and the services of an expensive personal stylist to ramp up your personal style. Follow these back to basics suggestions from the style experts to uncover and showcase your personal style. Remember the most important things to wear everyday are a quiet self-confidence and genuine smile.  These things alone will ramp up every style. There’s no better time than the present to get started.

Start by committing a stretch of time to go through your closet and drawers to take stock of you current wardrobe. Building a solid wardrobe is about quality not about amassing a huge quantity of the season’s latest trends. If you have pieces that you have not worn in over a year plan to dispose of it, donate it or discard it. It’s all too common to have a closet full of clothes and nothing to wear. Professional stylists recommend focusing on anchor pieces. A well-tailored jacket in a darker, neutral color, classic trousers and an A-line skirt in a darker shade will all serve to anchor your wardrobe. It’s simple to mix and match pieces with these items. Take advantage of the awesome deals offered by Groupon coupons and identify your anchor pieces from the huge selection and value available from Torrid. Select items that fit your body type. Purchasing pieces too large in an attempt to hide a few extra pounds will actually have the opposite effect. Wearing items that are too small or too tight are generally never flattering.

One of the easiest ways to enjoy the latest fashion trends without breaking the bank is to experiment with the huge selection of accessories available today. A fun scarf or colorful pocket book can take an outfit from basic to stylish. Take this opportunity to make an appointment with your hair stylist and explore new styles that flatter your features and lifestyle. Remind yourself that you’re not naming a baby, you’re just experimenting with a new style. Hair will grow back and styles can be changed. Best of luck on your journey to developing your personal style!
