One thing I love about style is that it varies from person to person. Some people love wild colours, while others may enjoy soft, subtle hues. Some prefer trendy clothing while others like to keep it classic, or perhaps you fall somewhere in between.
Play with your clothing in your wardrobe, try new colours and invest in pieces you’ll crave to wear. Creating your own flair should be a fun journey that makes you feel good.
Always remember to embrace your own unique sense of style, it’s what makes you special.
Iris Apfel, a 93 year old style icon, is known for her colourful, fashionable fair, wit and zest for life. While her style may be seen as over-the-top to some, her knowledge of personal style and fashion is incredible. When chatting about personal style she said:
“A woman should know herself, and know what she can afford, not only financially, but if she can carry it off. She should know whether she wants to invest her time in studying herself and experimenting—it doesn’t come from out of the blue. Personal style is attitude, attitude, attitude. It has to come from within. You have to develop things yourself. It takes a long time and it isn’t easy. Lately I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s a difficult thing for a lot of women, and it makes them uptight and nervous. You don’t have to be a fashion plate; if it’s a choice of being uptight and nervous, I’d rather be badly dressed. If you’re happy, that’s the most important thing. If you want to experiment, try, but no one is going to put you in jail if you buy the wrong skirt.
Some women I feel sorry for because they look at the glossies and they see these divine-looking models who are maybe 16 with gorgeous complexions (and retouched!). How could anybody possibly even think of looking like that? Why the heck would you want to? You have to be you! What looks wonderful on somebody else may look ghastly on you. You can’t expect to look like Angelina Jolie.”
