Ramp Up Your Personal Style

Do you find yourself reaching for your sweatpants and sweatshirts from your college days all too often? We’re so often drawn to comfortable and casual clothes. You can achieve this and add a little style to the mix with the right direction. It’s easy to be over whelmed with the onslaught of fashion and beauty magazines touting the latest must have styles. You don’t need an unlimited budget or the services of an expensive personal stylist to uncover your personal style. Follow these basic recommendations from the style experts and you’ll soon be on your way to defining your own style that’s a balance between comfort and fashion. There’s no better time to get started than today.

The first step is to set aside a few hours to go through your closet and drawers and take inventory of your wardrobe. If you have not worn a piece in over a year, plan to discard it, donate it or consign it. Make three piles accordingly. Don’t torture yourself by hanging onto garments that you’re convinced you’ll wear once you lose ten pounds. You will lose the ten pounds, but you won’t want to wear that piece again. Plan to donate or consign it. You now have a good idea of the pieces you actually enjoy wearing. It’s a misconception that wearing clothes a few sizes too large will hide extra pounds. Actually, just the opposite is true. Wearing oversized clothing tends to make you look oversized. Celebrate who you are and purchase clothes that truly fit.

To uncover your own sense of fashion, think about your lifestyle. Do you work in a corporate office? Are you active in sports and outdoor activities? Take advantage of the awesome deals offered by Groupon coupons and select from the awesome active wear available from Columbia. Start to build the anchors of your wardrobe. These should include well-tailored pieces from quality fabrics in neutral colors. A versatile jacket, classic trousers and A-line skirt are the anchors of your wardrobe. Pair these with the latest accessories and you can achieve a unique, up to date look without breaking the bank. Best of luck in ramping up your personal style!
