Understanding Lifestyle Dressing

Hi lovelies,

It's such a great idea to have a think about your personal style and how you can keep evolving this - it's very liberating once you understand your personal style.

Here I have a little video for you about my personal style - Relaxed Glamour and how you can achieve this look too.

 

I have often heard it said to create an interesting "Lifestyle Look", that you need to mix a garment from say a boutique with something purchased from more of a chain store. Yes and no, this can work, but you can still end up looking too dressy or too casual - the real key is not where you purchase the pieces from, it's the type of fabrics and silhouettes that you are mixing together.

Here I demonstrate that wearing two dressy fabrics together - create a look that is very smart - and by wearing two casual fabrics together, the look is very casual.

What we are looking for is the combination of streetwear fabrics like cotton, denim, t shirting, merino etc and wearing garments out of these fabrics back with garments made out of more luxe special fabrics like satin, sequin, tulle, lace and fabrics that have some interest and beauty to them.

Here I show you examples of relaxed lifestyle wear - mixing together fabrics to create a high low type of effect that says "Effortless".

If you are wearing a singular garment like a jumpsuit or a dress that is a little more special, you can create this lifestyle look by wearing accessories that are more casual.

The main thing to remember is that there can be some joy in understanding your style and incorporating some of this into your closet.

Have some fun playing dress up.
