What’s Your Signature Style?
Many people have commented that they notice that I always wear a necklace, and normally a larger scale necklace. The big necklace has become my signature piece. They are all different and I have lots of them, but these days I don’t feel quite right without some sort of large-scale necklace on.
I didn’t go out to make the necklace my signature piece, but once I discovered that a large necklace makes my large bust look more balanced and creates a new focal point above my bust (people used to always talk to the boobs), it became the staple in my wardrobe diet.
The joy of having a signature piece like a necklace is that it will make an otherwise dull outfit look more interesting. Boring shirt and pants? Whack on a big necklace and suddenly you have a more interesting outfit.
How about dedicating some time to find your signature style? It may be a particular print (like my friend Jill Chivers of Shop Your Wardrobe always wears animal print). It may be like Anna Wintour, her classic bob and large sunglasses that just don’t change. You may wear some stunning shoes. Or choose a palette of colours such as black, white and red.
Today I want you to start noticing if there are particular themes in your wardrobe or an item that you don’t feel dressed if you’re not wearing, or if the thought of wearing colours outside of a few certain shades. Maybe it’s a makeup look (Poppy King and her red lipstick).
Have you found a signature item or style already or are you still searching?
