Create a look that reflects who you are.
What we choose to wear says a lot about us. In many cases, women just grab what's clean, ironed and fits without giving much thought to what it communicates. If how you dress is sending out a message about who you are, which I do believe it is, then wouldn't you prefer for it be an accurate message?
Here are a few tips to get you started:
1. Determine the impression you want to create. In other words, what do you want your look to say about you?
2. Take a look at what you have in your existing wardrobe that will help you create the look.
3. Make a list of items you need to create the look you desire.
It starts with a consciousness. When you are more conscious of your wardrobe choices and what it says about you, you have greater control over the impression you create.
If this is not your skill set, then ask for some assistance from a trusted friend or professional. Just like any other skill, this can be learnt.
Here is a great example of Shirley's experience in discovering a look that accurately represents who she is in her business.
This is what Shirley Manson-Bishop said about her experience:
'I am undergoing a transition in my business and Tracy helped me with crystallising the “new me”. She was exceptional at understanding and translating what I wanted to represent into a functional, funky and super awesome look, without breaking the bank. I also loved her practical, creative and non-judgemental approach. She helped me to appreciate my body and really taught me some invaluable lessons on how to look good. She’s the kind of person who becomes an instant friend – thanks so much Tracy, you rock (did I mention that my husband is absolutely in love with my new suit).'
