This might seem like a weird topic to be about style—I get it. But bare with me.
Style is powerful. It is powerful in our relationship with ourselves, but it can be equally powerful in our relationships with others.
And if you have a business—even a totally-online one—relationships are essential to the health of your business (not to mention your own health.)
I’ve called this video networking for introverts. Because if you don’t want to be the first one to start a conversation, your style can start the conversation for you—and your only job is to know how to continue it.
WARNING: I don’t want you to make the #1 mistake I see people make when they receive a compliment.
Do you have anything sitting in your closet, that hardly gets worn because you “need” to wear heels with it?
I get it—you totally wear heels, just not today because you know you’ll be walking a lot, and not yesterday because you worked out in the morning, and not on Mondays because you’re always tired on Mondays…
Okay, let’s hold it right there. We don’t need to wear heels to make clothing pieces we love work.
Even those culottes. Even that form-fitting dress. Even that awkward length midi skirt.
I’ll show you how to look good in flats with a few basic style science principles (or shoe-ology as we’re calling it in this video.)
Watch the video and then make sure to grab today’s bonus where I show you exactly what flat shoe I would pair with all the tricky hemlines (like those culottes, midi-skirts, and form-fitting dresses we mentioned…)
Choose comfortable AND stylish. (It’s a false dichotomy.)
Basic doesn’t mean boring. (But you already know that because you watchedlast week’s video.)
Today, I’m helping you take your basics to the next level by upgrading them from your average basic, to an equally versatile piece that will add interest and refinement to your looks.
And here’s why:
Whether you do the capsule wardrobe per se, or just practice wardrobe minimalism—you want to have key players in your closet. These key players are pieces you love to wear and remix easily regularly. (And having a closet full of key players is the opposite of one full of an overwhelming amount of clothes you wear sporadically.)
You need key players. And you have the opportunity to make these key players something meaningful for your style. (And totally transform your style as a whole in the process.)
Today’s video will give you 5 basics to upgrade from basic to compelling.
Do you ever find yourself head-over-heels obsessing with clothes you see on other people?
Comparing you clothes to theirs and wishing you had those exact pieces?
Maybe you even furiously investigate where it’s from and how you can buy it.
Or maybe it’s not just specific clothing you find yourself envious of—maybe it’s entire styles? You want the bohemian style, but you also want to dress professional ladylike, and then you see someone’s rocker style and want that too.
Is your hand up?Because mine is. I’ve gone crazy trying to click-through Pinterest pins to find out where I can buy a dress. I’ve felt totally jealous of someone’s entire outfit on Instagram that I’ve got as far as the checkout page.
In this edition of Style Coach Light, I help you overcome clothing envy and style comparison—so you’re not wanting to go crazy loading up online shopping carts.
I can’t believe I’ve made it this far without talking about the internet’s favourite style word: capsule wardrobe.
Have you thought about trying a capsule wardrobe?
Have you thought about quitting your capsule wardrobe?
In today’s video, we are talking all about this buzzword and concept. I outline the pros and cons of capsule wardrobes so that by the end of this video, you’ll know if capsule wardrobes are the right choice for you.
