Eloquence has always been the currency of power and it's at your disposal now. With the current fixation on all things seventies, a portal into the various eras that fueled those freedom loving suffragettes and feminists is wide open. Romanticism, enlightenment, 18th century, bohemianism, royalty, nature, science....it's all there and meant to be mixed if you want to look modern. Looking back to historically inspired eloquence is a wonderfully persuasive manner to establish personal style.
Take cues from fashion historian Kaiser Karl Lagerfeld, the chameleon Marc Jacobs, or Gucci's superstar Alessandro Michele to pick up a rich and rewarding vibe. I suggest you read The Beautiful Fall by Alicia Drake, then indulge with abandon. Even staunch minimalists will be changed with a new outlook, encouraging the addition of an accessory or two before walking out the door.
The changing of the seasons is the best time to invent a new personalized image filled with fashion satisfaction, inner freedom and iconoclastic, stand-out style. If budget and existing closet volume are on your mind, shop your own wardrobe to rework new pairings while adding a dramatic beauty routine to illustrate the point until you are ready to make an investment.
While playing and mixing, use this exercise to pinpoint what is lacking in your story and discard a la method KonMari whatever has lost it's fizz. Fall is the best time to try on a sexy new persona while gaining self-assurance and poise in the process. Follow your instincts to create your future and design your life with distinguished style.
