We all know those women who always look flawlessly put together. Whether they are dressed up for a night on the town, or dressed down for an afternoon of errands, they ooze confidence, class and stylish sophistication. Why settle for less than fabulous when you can learn from the best?
The 10 Secrets…
1. Keep it Simple.
It can be tempting to overbuy and overload your closet with items that you simply adore, but when you shop till you drop until your closet can’t handle any more, it is easy to become overwhelmed by the volume of clothing you have. While it is nice to have options, there is something so effortless and chic about having high quality clothing, with less of an emphasis on the quantity. Challenge yourself to keep it simple. You’ll thank yourself later.
2. Plan Ahead.
Whether it is weeks ahead for a big event, a few days in advance for a first date, or just the night before another day at work, allowing yourself the time and space to think critically about what to wear challenges your personal style and can help you avoid that “I have fifteen minutes to get ready and nothing to wear” panic.
Women who excel in the accessorizing department always stand out above the rest. There is something about a statement necklace, an excellent bracelet, or a bold pair of earrings that grab our attention. Challenge yourself to accessorize like a pro to take your look to the next level.
4. Find Inspiration.
Seek out a style icon that inspires you to try new things. Whether it is your favorite fashion blogger, a celebrity, or your very own personal stylist, having a handful of ladies whose style you admire will constantly challenge and improve your look. Never underestimate the value of sourcing inspiration from those around you.
5. Don’t Be Afraid to Overdress.
There are two kinds of women; those who love to overdress, and those who live in fear of it. At Jackie, we are here to tell you that overdressing never hurt anybody. Never be afraid to reach for your favorite pair of heels or your most luxurious jumpsuit. Why let your favorite items sit in your closet until the right event comes along? Rock what you’ve got and don’t let anyone stop you.
6. Refresh Your Wardrobe Quarterly.
There is nothing more freeing than a quarterly closet cleaning session. With each new season, take stock of what is in your wardrobe and what doesn’t need to be on that top shelf anymore. Donate, resell or organize a clothing swap with friends to create space for fresh new trends and all of the fabulous pieces that your Jackie stylist will send your way!
7. Go Bold with Your Lips.
Stylish ladies know that bold lips are always on trend. Lean into this classic look and bring out the bold berry, the luscious red and the summery coral lipsticks. If you aren’t a lipstick lady, start with a nude gloss and avoid matte finishes for easy wear. Before you know it, you’ll be confident in the boldest colors!
8. Own Quality Denim.
Nothing conveys class and style quite like a well-fitted pair of high-quality denim to steal the show. Kiss your worn out jeans goodbye and invest in a pair that will last. At Jackie, we carry denim brands like Hudson, One Teaspoon, and Paige, all of which will have you loving your look. If you’re searching for the perfect fit, reach out to your stylist to find the denim of your dreams!
9. Use Your Travels to Curate Your Style.
Traveling is the perfect opportunity to build upon your wardrobe. As you make your way to your travel destination, set aside time to observe local trends. Grab a bench in a central part of town and observe what fabrics, colors and textures the locals are wearing. When you find something you love, seek it out and bring it home with you. If you’re traveling light, begin the search for intricate accessories that are easy to pack and will make excellent conversation pieces upon your return home!
10. Have a Stylist.
Never underestimate the value of having a stylist of your own. Not only is she there to keep you updated with current trends and to keep your wardrobe stocked with the very best, but she is there to be your friend, who wants to know anything and everything about your styling preferences. Think of a Jackie stylist as someone who will constantly empower, uplift and inspire her clients. We can assure you that you won’t be disappointed in the relationship you form with your stylist here at Jackie. Give it a try. What do you have to lose?
