Several years ago, I ended up working with a style consult client who intimidated me. This woman had fabulous taste, a marvelous wardrobe that included both well-edited basics and funky accent pieces, and she had already figured out how she wanted to flatter her fabulous figure. What, exactly, did she need ME for?
Well, for starters, she was bored stiff.
My sweet client had her basic style totally nailed, but she had no idea how to use her wardrobe to express her creativity. She looked polished and lovely, but she wanted to look polished, lovely, and INTERESTING. And yet, as the mom of two young kids, she had to keep her ensembles simple, comfortable, and washable. In the end, we found three techniques that she could use to spice up her pared-down outfits, and since they can be applied to just about any woman hoping to make simple outfits sparkle, I thought I’d share ’em with all of you!
