Do you might have that record in your head?
“Shirt-dresses simply aren’t my model….”
“nah, yellow is just not my color…”
“I don’t put on my hair up…”
You’re not the one one! I’ve bought an inventory of issues in my very own head that I usually keep away from, as a result of they both don’t actually work on my form, they aren’t my finest colors, or they don’t match my model character.
However time and again, I inform myself, and I inform my private styling shoppers…
NEVER SAY NEVER!
So these three statements above are issues I’ve informed myself up to now with regard to my model…. however I do like to additionally push myself out of my model consolation zone just a little.
So listed here are three issues I by no means put on….
my inner reasoning: my Model Character is female, edgy, elevated and I feel for the longest time, I’ve simply considered shirt-dresses as too preppy for me. Too structured maybe? But in addition buttons and busts usually are not at all times mates….
Enter this STUNNING costume I noticed on-line from beautiful Brisbane label, RicRac Street…
However really, it ticks ALL my Model Character phrases! The beautiful flowy cloth, and puff sleeve are super-feminine. The print feels edgy and daring and the model of the costume on the whole, significantly with the boots added, feels elevated.
It was love at first sight, though, it’s on my record of ‘what I don’t put on”
2. Yellow – on the whole
For YEARS I’ve informed myself, as an individual who fits cooler tones higher, that I can’t put on yellow. However lately, two issues have occurred;
Firstly, I’ve experimented extra with color myself, understanding that truly EVERY color fits EVERY particular person, it’s nearly getting the tone and depth proper.
Secondly, the proper yellow for me has come again into vogue. Sure that basically helps whenever you’re exploring new colors to put on. For years, the yellow that was extra on-trend (and due to this fact, extra obtainable) was the hotter, mustard yellow.
So now that the proper (for me) yellow is right here, I can’t get sufficient….
I’m presently OBSESSED with these sunshine yellow pants from Heidi Frank (don’t fear, they’re coming again into inventory quickly!) and this superb Saben bag (outdated season sorry!).
Not solely are they the proper match to put on with one another, this yellow works completely with different daring colors I’m comfy carrying, like this magenta pink.
3. I by no means put on my hair up.
It is a humorous one. I lately had my hair lower shorter than I requested for, and it actually threw me! I’ve at all times used my hair to essentially outline that female ingredient of my private model, often by carrying it out and including waves, and rapidly, most of it was gone!
It took a couple of weeks to regulate, I felt like a lot of my femininity had been taken away, however now, I slick it again extra that I used to, however play up the female in different methods – crimson lips, floral prints, and simply go about my model leaning into the shorter hair. (I’m completely rising it again although haha!)
So how do you put on stuff you’ve mentioned you’d by no means put on?
To start with, you simply decide to by no means saying by no means! It’s such a giant a part of my model mantra. I’ll by no means inform a shopper that they can not put on one thing – in the event that they wish to put on *insert merchandise similar to jumpsuit right here, then we are going to merely discover them a jumpsuit that works for them!
