Inside Out Style
where the science and art of style collide
Jill Chivers of Shop Your Wardrobe and I discuss how to develop your personal style in this video. This follows on from last weeks video on finding your signature style.
thanks for the video! I’m coming to the end of a HUGE transformation, the two of you have raised some excellent points and reinforced my new attitude. It is 2 years since I left the corporate world but I still like the classic looks of button down shirts and blazers/suit jackets. To ‘casual up’ my business attire, I have discovered scarves and teamed with good quality jeans, khakis, or cottons. Boots play a large role too.
There are a myriad number of ways to wear scarves whether the scarves are square, rectangle or triangle. I have scarves in silk, cashmere, wool, crinkle cotton, rayon, and polyester. If one needs inspiration, the internet provides many examples on the various ways to tie a scarf. I’ve discovered scarves can be worn year round in many climates.
You are absolutely right about having someone else enjoy any items no longer providing a ‘green light’ in your current wardrobe. I have found many treasures in Thrifting and I’m sure others have found my donations to be treasures also. I’m looking forward to our next video–I love them all. ~Paula B
How exciting Paula that you’re having a transformation – and I love your attitude to thrifting – it’s all about sharing the love and the previously loved!
So true – I loved this conversation, thanks
I have gone the other way. I got a new job recently and now need a more corporate look. I was previously a colour/big necklaces person but that’s not where I am at any more. I have redicovered a beautiful silver celtic brooch, and other smaller but quality items of jewellery and am wearing these with the more classic buttoned shirts and suits. Silk scarves and the more delicate jewellery seem to work better now, but I am fidning some elements of it hard, especially with the fitting challenges of being a pear shape. Having the colour/texture in my jacket seems to be working quite well also.
