Your lifestyle, your quirk
Every good fashionista knows what his or her best feature is, and to show it off when you are putting together outfits. We can all be a little overly critical of ourselves, and you may not think you have a “best feature,” but trust me, we all have at least one. Most of us have some idea of what ours is, but there is nothing wrong with getting a second opinion or just some positive reinforcement.
This can be a body part we like best or get the most compliments on, but you can also use your personality to show off your best asset. For instance, it can be as obvious as a pair of great legs or wearing certain colors to show off your eyes, or as subtle as your positive disposition.
Obviously, wearing the “right” garments is a good start, but one of the easiest and economical ways to show off your best feature is with accessories. I am a huge fan of accessories and using them to accent an outfit; not only is accessorizing less expensive, it’s also quick and easy.
Here are a few questions you can ask yourself when you’re shopping or before you leave the house. Keep in mind that your questions and answers will vary depending on the event, like work vs. going out on the town
1. What is your best feature? Is it your neck, waistline, or your sense of humor? Try an oversized choker, handbag or belt, but go for something eye catching or even whimsical.
2. What do I want to say about myself? Am I serious, fun, sexy? For serious, opt for a classic pieces like a menswear watch; fun could be mixing pearls or faux fur with a t-shirt; for sexy, try a pair of “these are not for dancing” mile-high shoes.
3. To show off a tiny waist, try a decorative belt, or draw attention away from your body with a pair of interesting gloves or a hat, or an oversized very ornate handbag.
You can also use this trick to change your mood or show a different side of you. I swear an interesting pair of shoes or handbag always cheers me up, and usually has the same effect on other people.
