Do you might have that record in your head?
“Shirt-dresses simply aren’t my model….”
“nah, yellow isn’t my color…”
“I don’t put on my hair up…”
You’re not the one one! I’ve obtained a listing of issues in my very own head that I typically keep away from, as a result of they both don’t actually work on my form, they aren’t my greatest colors, or they don’t match my model character.
However time and again, I inform myself, and I inform my private styling purchasers…
NEVER SAY NEVER!
So these three statements above are issues I’ve instructed myself up to now with regard to my model…. however I do like to additionally push myself out of my model consolation zone a bit of.
So listed below are three issues I by no means put on….
my inside reasoning: my Model Persona is female, edgy, elevated and I believe for the longest time, I’ve simply considered shirt-dresses as too preppy for me. Too structured maybe? But additionally buttons and busts will not be 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 Persona phrases! The beautiful flowy material, and puff sleeve are super-feminine. The print feels edgy and daring and the model of the costume typically, notably 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 – typically
For YEARS I’ve instructed myself, as an individual who fits cooler tones higher, that I can’t put on yellow. However not too long ago, two issues have occurred;
Firstly, I’ve experimented extra with color myself, understanding that really EVERY color fits EVERY individual, it’s nearly getting the tone and depth proper.
Secondly, the proper yellow for me has come again into style. Sure that actually helps if you’re exploring new colors to put on. For years, the yellow that was extra on-trend (and due to this fact, extra accessible) was the hotter, mustard yellow.
So now that the right (for me) yellow is right here, I can’t get sufficient….
I’m at the moment OBSESSED with these sunshine yellow pants from Heidi Frank (don’t fear, they’re coming again into inventory quickly!) and this superb Saben bag (previous season sorry!).
Not solely are they the right match to put on with one another, this yellow works completely with different daring colors I’m snug carrying, like this magenta pink.
3. I by no means put on my hair up.
This can be a humorous one. I not too long ago had my hair reduce shorter than I requested for, and it actually threw me! I’ve at all times used my hair to actually outline that female ingredient of my private model, often by carrying it out and including waves, and abruptly, most of it was gone!
It took a number 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 consumer that they can’t put on one thing – in the event that they need to put on *insert merchandise comparable to jumpsuit right here, then we are going to merely discover them a jumpsuit that works for them!
