7 Great Style Secrets and Tips


My Sister-in-law, Sue has a great sense of style.  I   never remember seeing her that she didn’t look fabulous . I love shopping with her for 2 reasons.  One thing is I’m learning all her “secrets”, and the second thing is she is completely honest about the clothes I try on.  Everyone needs a friend like her. 

 Secret 1
  One day Sue took 2 of the same size and same color pants in the dressing room.  She laughed and said I know you think I’m crazy but the same size can fit different. Truthfully I thought it was a little odd, but  boy was she right.   
On one of our shopping trips I found a blouse I loved but it was too tight.  Sue told me to try another one in the same size.  It was a perfect fit.  I’ve never shopped the same since.  

Secret 2
Don't get sold on sales, unless it is something on your needs list.  So many times I have bought a sale item only to put it straight into my Goodwill bag.
Save your money to buy something that you love. Now that you are shopping smarter you can afford a higher quality item occasionally.

 Secret 3
Forget the size tags. I know you all have been there, where you bought something because you liked the size on the tag.  It's a trick of the garment industry.  If you are a 14 and you find a 10 you can wear, you are more likely to buy it. Buy because you love an item, not because you love the size on the tag.

 Secret 4
 Build up your jewelry and scarves collections. Great necklaces, earrings, and scarves can make a basic wardrobe pop. You can take a look from plain to gorgeous with the right accessory. 
  I do look for jewelry at high end stores when they are on sale.  I go in with a game plan, not impulsive grabbing everything I like.

 Secret 5
 Find a tailor and make him or her your best friend. Mine just happens to be a friend and she is awesome. I try to find clothes that fit but sometimes the hem or sleeves have to be altered.  I'm not good at hems so they go straight to the tailor. Fit is what 
makes or breaks an outfit.

 Secret 6
Invest in the best undergarments you can afford. If the girls aren't in their proper place, there is no way you will look stylish.  Also invest in a whole body slimmer (the kind that look like a teddy) for a smooth backside.

 Secret 7
Become a quick change artist. Keep a scarf in your purse to instantly change your look.  Great if you have an engagement after work and don't have time to change.
