Just as we have a personality of our own which shows itself in everything we do, we also have a STYLE personality that shines through in what we wear. So let’s look at the 6 basic style personality types. Which one are you?

This month I have held 2 Lunch and Learns on this very topic.
I heard, “Oh my.” “I can’t decide.” “That is me!” coming from my guests as they filled out their style- personality questionnaire.
I demonstrated how to take something like a simple sheath dress and change it up to create all 6 personality styles, just by using a variety of accessories, shoes and jackets. You may BE a certain personality, however, we also have sub-types and at times you may want to bring that sub-personality in. Dress not only for who you are but “where you want to be.”
Your style shows up and speaks for you, even if you don’t say a word. It all goes back to making a good first impression. We form 32 judgments and opinions about someone in the first 7 to 32 seconds of meeting them. What is your clothing and style saying about you?
I would love to help you discover the STYLE personalities hiding inside. (It was very interesting to discover many women were actually hiding their TRUE self.)
