Have you ever looked at two women wearing the same outfit and thought,"oh, woman A looks so much better!" But you couldn't figure out why? This, my fabulous readers, is the essence of style.
Style means injecting yourself into an outfit. It's not just wearing the clothes-that's fashion. And it's not just about labels, or the expense, or the exact replication of something you saw Amal Clooney wearing. (BTW-I have a serious girl crush on her closet!). Style is putting together pieces so that they suit YOU. It's the little touches that make your style stand out.
Say, for example, I see two gals wearing jeans, colorblocked sweaters and boots-but one looks boring while the other one looks put together and stylish. What's the difference??
Well, the stylish gal had her jeans tailored so that they're a quarter inch off the ground. The other chick is wearing hers without hemming them and they're dragging on the ground. Stylish Samantha is wearing boots that have a stripe the color of her sweater. Plain Jane is wearing black boots that need new heels and a good polish. Plain Jane is also wearing her daily makeup with no lipstick, while our stylin' sister is rocking a bold pink lip. These are the things that take AN outfit and make it YOUR outfit!
Get what I mean? It's the little touches, the thought process that goes into picking accessories or makeup. It's you taking the time to slide on the cuff bracelet instead of going out bare-armed. It's YOU. So think about that next time you're dashing off to work in one of your "I don't have time to accessorize" outfits. Because you DO have time. You always have time to make "you" into "YOU"!
