Ramp up Your Personal Style

Have you found yourself donning your college sweatpants and sweatshirts with increasing frequency?  Don’t fall prey to the notion that fashion and style are the antithesis of comfort. Depending on your life style and profession, fashion and personal style can certainly provide the same comfort as your treasured college sweats. You don’t need an unlimited budget or the services of an expensive personal stylist to ramp up your personal style. Do remind yourself that the most important things to wear everyday are a genuine smile and quiet self-confidence. They will truly serve to radiate your inner beauty. Follow these back to basics recommendations from professional stylists to uncover your personal style.

Are you still sporting the same hair style you wore in college? When running into old friends, the suggestion that you haven’t changed since college isn’t always a compliment! Take the time to make an appointment with a professional hair stylist to rethink your current style. Clip styles from fashion magazines or save photos of styles that you find appealing. During the consultation portion of your stylist appointment, share these images with your stylist. They will help you define a style, based on these looks, that most flatters your features, hair type and life style.

Take the time to explore new make-up products using super discounts available from Groupon coupons and head to Sephora to meet with a professional cosmetologist. Experiment with the new products and learn which techniques accentuate your best features. It may take a bit of time to become accustomed to a new look, but certainly worth it to elevate your own personal style.

Finally, commit to purchasing clothing that fits your body style. Resist the temptation to purchase clothing that is too large with the sense that you’ll be able to hide a few extra pounds. The result is actually the opposite. Clothing that is too large actually gives the illusion that you are larger than you actually are. Embrace your body type and purchase clothing that actually fits and is appropriate for your age. Best of luck to you on your journey to ramping up your personal style!
