 “Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself,” Coco Chanel.

Fashion forward shapes, textures, colors, and style to keep your look just the way you want it.

We all would like to have the budget for a designer wardrobe but instead, we will need to use the right tools and sense about getting the look right.

A good way to start this process is thinking of yourself as a blank canvas to portrait the outfit and accessories you will wear. From that view, check how do you look like, what mood that outfit and accessories bring to you, what is that portrait projecting about you. You can keep adjusting your portrait to different variations. Some of the main parameters to keep in mind when building your identity are:

Colors: always checking those that go with your body complexion, skin tone, type of occasion/event, season/time, and very important, your goals. One great example of how colors are used in personal goals is RED; used to project confidence. Some others want to project self-assured without being too bold — that is when white or a light color tone combined with dark accent colors is appropriate, having in mind always seasons. That is the case of Tiffany, for example, light blue + chocolate brown.

  • Context and goals: imaging yourself like dressing a mannequin, having in mind the scenario you will be part of it and what is the role you will play within that scenario, what is your goal while attending that event, how you want to be perceived?
  • “Framing” yourself: since you are building your own style and identity/brand, your outfit and accessories should showcase you projecting out the best of you. Don’t forget, “perception turns into reality for those out there.” We all need to know that “Fashion” and “Style” are not synonymous with each other, fashion is what is trendy out there, but style is how you ownership that trendy aspect making it look yours even when somebody else may have the same outfit and accessories; that is where attitude play the big role.

Attitude is a settled way of thinking and feeling, reflecting on our behavior. That is why what we wear whether we are aware of it or not, is a key part of our style and identity — simply because when we look good, we feel good and when we feel good, we look good, a reciprocate formula. Confidence is always attractive for either-gender, situation and business field.
