I am the FIRST to admit that FASHION IS MY PASSION! I am also an advocate for STYLE trumping FASHION, especially as we age.
Well.... FASHION is a seasonal thing. What is "fashionable" today might be considered a "fashion crime" next week. STYLE, however, cannot really be bought. Style is ETERNAL. It is an innate sense of oneself. What works for the individual.
YOU ARE GOING TO NEED A BIT OF CONFIDENCE TO CARRY OFF THIS NEXT STEP!
GET NOTICED - BE A REBEL
Do something a little different....... from THE CROWD.
A sea of people wearing stripes "because stripes are SO IN - RIGHT NOW".... you turn up at the event
wearing POLKA DOTS!!!
All of your friends have long blonde hair.... cut yours off and go sassy brunette.
No-one can seem to live without their glossy pink lips.... wear a bold matte red instead.
Your girlfriends tottering around in high heels... wear a chunky boot.
YOU ARE GOING TO GET NOTICED!!!!! Make sure your bold statement is something you are comfortable with. You need to have a sense of humour... a giggle... a "devil may care attitude" to pull it off.
Have fun with fashion and enjoy your OWN sense of style. You can still pay tribute to the seasons fashion.... but make it your own. Be a REBEL every now and then and try something DIFFERENT!
