Ramp up Your Personal Style

Are you still sporting the same sweat pants and hairstyle from college? While comfort may be your excuse, more often than not, women find themselves simply overwhelmed by the seemingly never ending array of fashion choices. Follow these simple recommendations from the professional stylists to ramp up your personal style. There’s no better time than the present to get started.

Start by taking inventory of your wardrobe. If you’ve not worn a garment in over two years, it’s time to donate, discard or consign it. Don’t fall prey to the notion that you should retain garments that don’t fit under the premise that with the loss of just a few pounds you’ll wear them again. You won’t. Don’t torture yourself with these; discard or donate them instead.  While fashions continuously change, forget the notion that the latest style is necessary to remain up to date. So often, every style isn’t suitable for every body type or life style. Select classic pieces and compliment them with fashionable accessories to bring your outfits update. Choose clothing that fits properly. An oversized shirt or top won’t hide an extra ten pounds, but it will make you look ten pounds heavier. The same can be said for clothing that is too small. Embrace your figure and purchase items that fit and flatter your best features.

The next step is to head to your salon. Make an appointment with your stylist and allow extra time for a consultation. Discuss options for new hair styles that compliment your hair type, facial features and lifestyle. Be open minded, a new hair cut can truly improve your personal style. After your new cut is complete, take advantage of the awesome deals offered by Groupon coupons and snag a L’Oreal hair color coupon to highlight your new hairstyle. Stop by the cosmetics counter at your local department store or favorite beauty store and arrange for a personal make-over. You’ll discover new products and application techniques that will not only update your look but also highlight your features.

Finally, remember that the most important thing to wear every day is a genuine smile and quiet self-confidence. True beauty and style comes from within. Celebrate the real you and your personal style will radiate throughout the day.
