Balance August 21 2013, 0 Comments

Great style is all about balance.

Balance of textures
Balance of color
Balance of lengths.
Balance of masculine and feminine
inspirations.

Lets say you bought a new dress. It’s
very simple in design, but it’s very
savvy and it looks terrific on, so you’d
like to jazz it up a bit.

Let’s add some texture…..a beautiful
pair of hosiery.

Add a dash of color……..a
necklace or a great oversized ring
w/some color in it.

For a day look….If the dress is short,
above the knee….. I always
recommend a taller boot. If the dress
happens to be bellow the knee, that’s
when a heel looks

terrific.

Never any taller then two inch heels
for the day. (Psst…I will be addressing
hemlines and footwear a bit more in
depth in my next edition).

Now if your dressing for the
evening or a special event, you have
more flexibility to dress a bit more

alluring, especially on a date.
Which by the way ladies, I always think
it’s more appropriate to be your sexist
when you have a man on your arm,
then let’s say when your going out with
the girls.
Also when styling an outfit, focus on
the one piece that has the most detail,
whether it’s a dress or top with ruffles,
a plunging neckline, an extra large flair
in the bottom of a pant, or quite
possibly the fabric is the feature, very
textured, all metallic…etc.

When you pinpoint what that may be,
you can style your accessories and
footwear around that….

Balance, simplicity.

Another thing to remember about bal-
ance that seems to always apply nicely
is…..if your outfit has a particular sex
appeal in one area….perhaps a very
low cut front…..complete the other
half with a more conservative
approach. If your aching to wear a very
special pair of heels, whether in a
boot or a shoe….keep the top part
more conservative….a high
neck-line…a button front shirt w/
only a couple of buttons open.

Acquiring a nice sense of
balance
when dressing does
eventually become spontaneous.
