Top Secrets to Styling Yourself


Ever wonder how some women look like they have a magical fairy-stylist dress them every morning? We are here to lift the veil on styling so that you, too, can look like you hired a stylist (even when you didn’t)!

  1. Make a list of your favorite physical features. For real! Write it down and own it. If you are feeling stumped just picture your favorite outfit and what you love about it. How does it make you feel?

  2. It’s ok to mix and match! Take advantage of sales but also invest in quality items that accent your current and yet-to-come outfits!

  3. Don’t be afraid to try new styles, colors, and patterns but be true to yourself - the more comfortable you are in your new outfit the more your confidence will show. 

Your personal style should suit your lifestyle, mood, and resources but don’t feel like you have to break the rules to create a unique personal style. The classics are called ‘classic’ for good reason

Many people think they can’t afford high-end style. But you’ll get more value if you spend your money on one good investment piece that you’ll use for years, like a cool bag, instead of wasting money on multiple pieces that aren’t classic.

4. Not quite ready for a new trend (like this fall’s neon trend!)? Ms. Morizn says that you can stick to the basics and save the trends for accessories. No need to go full neon, unless that makes YOU feel confident!

For most people it helps to stick to a basic color palate, like black, grey, white, oatmeal and tan. Then you can get a little crazy—think metal, wood, bright patterns—with outstanding accent pieces.
— Ms. Morzin

5. Dress for where you want to be - have an interview or event coming up? Embody that through your style! Do you have a goal or dream? Maybe it’s a vacation or career related—use your closet and your style to project that goal into a reality!


6. Don’t worry about the size on the tag. Designers create styles for all sorts of body types and companies often play with sizing in an effort to flatter their customers. We suggest trying on everything and then make your choice based on how the clothing makes you feel!
