The Six Questions
- How can I create a Style Signature that lasts over time but doesn’t lose the quality of staying current?
- I don’t want to look like I’m a “ mature woman” but I don’t want to look like I’m desperately clinging to a past decade – what do I wear?
- How do I tell people what my style is so they can help me find it?
- Why do I have a drawer full of make-up when I use the same thing over and over?
- What do I do with my hair, what’s my best length, what color?
- I feel like I’ve grown and changed but my clothes look like someone I was. How do I evolve my wardrobe to look like I know where I’m going?
Having a wardrobe plan can answer the Six Questions and create space for you to feel professional and comfortable in your style. Start by finding out who you are through your closet. Take a little style journey.
Step 1 – Daydream about how you’d like to live your life for the next 5 years. What kind of lifestyle do you want? What does your career look like? What does it feel like to reach your goals? Embrace the exciting feelings and remember them.
Step 2 – Go through magazines that are more “fashion forward” but realistic. Harper’s Bazaar is one of my favorites. Pull the pages that give you a visual of those feelings from Step 1.
Step 3 – Go to your closet and see if you have the same feelings about whats there now.
The Seventh Question: Is it time to strengthen your editing criteria, bring your look up to date and create a plan that moves you forward?
