Three Keys to Dressing Well

dressing wellI love to travel and I love airports (unless I am hoofing it to a new gate to make my connecting flight!).  If you are at the airport it generally means you are on your way to someplace enjoyable.  It’s also a great place to do people watching.  When you see someone who looks really put together, what is it that you notice about her?  She looks like she knew what she was doing when she got dressed.

There are three keys to dressing well:  (1.) Dressing the best colors for your hair color, skin tone and eye color; (2.) Dressing for your body shape; (3.) Dressing in proportion to your frame size.

There are 6 Color Codes which are based on your hair color, skin tone and eye color.  Once you discover your Color Code you will know exactly what shades look best on you (and which don’t!) and that’s step one of what it takes to look put together.

Step two is recognizing your body shape and dressing it in the best possible way.  The thing to do is highlight your best features and camouflage your more challenging areas.  There are four body types and every one of them can look great!

Finally step three:  your frame size is crucial to looking well put together.  Like Coco Chanel says, “Fashion is architecture.  It is a matter of proportions.”  If you wear prints and accessories that are opposite your frame size you will look bigger than what you are (no one wants that, believe me!).  When your prints & accessories are matched to your frame you look balanced and best.

With these keys in mind you can feel confident that you are well dressed.
