Second in a Three Part Series of Wardrobe Interventions
Laura is a nursing student and yoga instructor. When I first met her she pretty much lived in yoga gear, so I thought she’d be a great guinea pig.
But she was a step ahead of me in the wardrobe building process, as she’d recently had a volunteering position that required “business casual,” which resulted in her having a pretty solid foundation of basics to build on.
Ok, I’m gonna say it again, fit, fit, fit!! The difference in attitude between Laura trying on her favorite new pants for me and knowing they looked good, versus Kristin’s self-consciousness was palpable. I swear, if it fits right, it will make you feel good, no matter your shape or size! (Of course, finding things that fit right is not always easy.)
I helped Laura mix and match some of these existing pieces in new ways, and gave her some tips on fit about things of which she was unsure.
For her style board, I gave her some accessories that she could use to dress up her basics, as well as dresses and sweaters with pops of color that would go with the neutrals she already owns. And inspiration for her brown Frye motorcycle boots!
