We’ve heard it a million times — “you can totally pull that off” or “there’s no way I can pull this off” or “only she could pull that off.” But what do we really mean by this? How can one person “pull off” something while someone else cannot? More importantly, why can’t you?
Why oh why would we wear a coat and not even bother to put it all the way on? Silly fashion people, coats are for warmth! But are they always? Let’s take a look.
To quote the famous Heidi Klum, “as you know in fashion one day you’re in, and the next day you’re out.” This is very true BUT sometimes an exception comes around and you find certain styles and designers that stick around for a while. Now, what makes that happen? Well, that’s the topic of today’s discussion, folks (amongst other things of course…)
There are two questions I have a hard time answering in interviews — 1) Where do you see yourself in five years? (answer: let me get through this month’s Google calendar and I’ll get back to you) and 2) How would you describe your personal style? (answer: can you just describe it for me?) It’s a tough question to answer on your own. You get dressed, put on the clothes you want because you like them but never really stop to think “what IS my personal style?” Maybe it’s because you haven’t figured it out just yet…
The way we get dressed is such a personal thing. Unless you have to wear a uniform everyday, there’s an entire thought process that is choosing an outfit. Of course this process differs depending on the occasion (for example, you’ll probably spend more time on putting together a look for a wedding as opposed to what you’ll wear running errands on the weekend). But how exactly do we go about this? Have you ever really thought about it? Let’s go ahead and break down the art of getting dressed.
