Here are three mistakes most women make when they put together or add to their wardrobes…
The first mistake is trusting the fashion industry and believing what they say will look good on you, and blaming yourself if it doesn’t.
The fashion industry has been telling you the wrong things. Each woman has a certain type of beauty and you need to identify what your type is and dress yourself accordingly, no matter what the fashion magazines suggest for the upcoming season.
For example, maybe the woman on the cover of Vogue can pull off the business suit she is modeling but those navy pinstripes or severe lines, or even the fabric of the suit, would not be right for your type of beauty. Is there a type of business suit you can wear?
Absolutely! But you may need softer lines, or a richer color. Or some other change in order to wear the best suit look for you.
The second mistake is choosing something you like, a particular color or style or outfit, without knowing if it right for your type of beauty. What I used to do was try to copy something I saw on a mannequin or in a magazine or even on someone else, and expect it to be right for me.
But many of the outfits you see won’t be right for you, not because there is anything wrong with you but because they were designed to look good on a supermodel or an image the designer had in her head. They may fit another type of beauty, but not yours.
The third mistake that almost every woman makes is believing that black and white are neutrals that look good on fashion industry suggests that every woman should have at least one little black dress!
Sounds good. But it isn’t true! Not every woman looks good in black, in fact, there are four beauty types and only one can wear black well. The same is true for white. Most of us need something other than pure white.
So if you put together the wardrobe advised in fashion magazines, one little black dress, one crisp white blouse, one pair of jeans, one blazer and so on, you may be setting yourself up for disappointment and may find that half of that planned wardrobe will sit in your closet neglected and unworn.
Instead, you need to know exactly what will look best on you and to do that, you need to discover your energy profile. Once you know your energy type, you will be ready to find your best look again and again when you head to the mall or open a catalog.
