What does an outfit say about me?

what an outfit says

Happy Tuesday!  Today, I have prepared an exercise to have us think WHAT DOES AN OUTFIT SAY ABOUT ME?

While I was at Dillard’s last week, I saw several displays which made excellent discussion for today’s post….what does an outfit say?

Most of you know that I am all about fashion messaging…it is our calling card...the first thing people see about us.

What an outfit says about us sometimes is a first impression to the world.

One of my goals has been for a long time, to get you, the audience to think…what does an outfit say about me? before you leave the house.

So, let’s get started with today’s exercise.

WHAT DOES AN OUTFIT SAY ABOUT ME?

This is not a “would you wear it” exercise.

Today, I would like you to look at these mannequins as styled and tell us this about what the outfit says:

  1. What does the outfit say about the woman wearing it?
  2. How would you style it differently, or would you wear it as it is displayed and why?  When deciding how you would style it differently, discuss the messaging…what the outfit says

Yes, it requires thinking a bit deeper about your fashion.

In a world rapidly becoming more casual with clothing, I have to wonder if people are really looking at what an outfit says.

For example, what do distressed jeans say about the wearer.

Some of us, might think they say TRENDY, CURRENT, RELAXED…and others of us, might think they say SLOPPY, UNCONCERNED, TRYING TOO HARD.

The overall question becomes...DOES IT REALLY MATTER WHAT AN OUTFIT SAYS?

Of course, I believe it does.

How I present myself in my clothing has everything to do with my confidence and whether or not I will be taken seriously as a woman over 60.

I always want to step out confidently and joyfully.  Taking time to assess how I look is important for me to achieve that.

In my community, it is rare that I go out and not run into someone I know.  I always want to present myself well.

I rarely think about being over-dressed in today’s casual world.

As I begin to shop for the events ahead of me in 2023, a big question I will ask, is What Does This Outfit Say About Me?

It is your turn now, to look over these four displays and answer the questions, I posed….

  1. What does the outfit say about the woman wearing it?
  2. How would you style it differently, or would you wear it as it is displayed and why?  When deciding how you would style it differently, discuss the messaging…what the outfit says

Messaging is interpreted differently by every body and we may be surprised how some of us look at these displays…so please, answer honestly with your first impression views.

I did not pick these displays because they were “bad,” I picked them because I thought they sent different and interesting messages.

WHAT DOES AN OUTFIT SAY ABOUT ME – SALE SHOPPING

Remember, as you shop sales, to ask this question.

If you control the messaging to be on point (with 3-5 adjectives as guides), then you will have a confident, empowering personal style.

Here are a few fun pieces currently on style that you may want to see…..
