Style is the expression of someone’s personality through their appearance. There really isn’t a “best” style; meaning there is no one look that is right for all people. My job as Fashion/Wardrobe Stylist is to help clients find their own sense of personal style and express what is natural for them. What feels best on a client typically is what looks best!
Here are a few basic styles to help you uncover your style preference:
This look never goes out of style! A person fitting this profile uses a neutral palette for makeup and has defined cheekbones, eyes dressed with mascara, and define brows. Hair is likely in a chignon or pulled back. Celebs that fit this profile include Gwyneth Paltrow and Sophia Loren.
Dramatic people are self-confident and flamboyant. They wear defined eye makeup, use their face as a palette like an artist working with a canvas. The person that fits this profile love to wear black heels and black slacks. Celebs that fit this profile include Beyoncé and Victoria Beckham.
This woman fills the room with her presence. Her look is polished and classic, with makeup based on a neutral palette. Her lip color and eye makeup are soft but her lashes are dramatic! An elegant woman may wear a black Armani suit. Celebs that fit this profile include Grace Kelly and Katie Holmes.
Women with this style have a more wholesome look. They often wear minimal makeup, with maybe a touch of lipstick and/or mascara. Their clothing is comfortable and cozy.
