Your closet needs to be a place of joy and celebration of who are you now - not who you were.
Your self-esteem won't come from body parts. You need to step away from the mirror every once in a while, and look for another reflection, like the one in the eyes of the people who love you and admire you.
Don't let fear or insecurity stop you from trying new things. Believe in yourself. Do what you love. And most importantly, be kind to others, even if you don't like them.
Matching your hat to your shoe to your bag, or your necklace to your earrings, has a tendency to look dated. Mixing up your accessories adds interest to an outfit, and can make you look much more modern and polished.
Confidence is the best accessory. It can make or break an outfit.
Fashion is an industry to make money. It plays into human psychology. We want to belong, we want to be loved. I'm not trying to demonize the fashion industry - I love the fashion industry - but style is about taking the control out of the industry's hand and having you decide what works for you.
Clothes allow you to see yourself in a different light. They can transform you instantly and have a very real, visceral impact. Clothes become symbolic of who we are.
There is something about a well-fitted modern jacket that feels like armor. If it's cut well, it adds a dose of cool to anything you wear it with and does the heavy lifting when it comes to creating a flattering shape.
Style offers concrete rules you can follow. You can use it as a resource rather than a barrier to feeling good about yourself.
What is magical and mystifying to me about style is not that by seeing we can believe. It is that eventually, we can believe, because we can see we can embrace change the more we can make it tangible.
The fashion industry [is] built on, and thrives on, our collective insecurity.
The key to personal style is understanding your individual beauty enough to know which looks will work for you and which probably won't.
You don't need money to look fabulous. There are so many awesome new designers, so many designers doing collections for mass retailers.
Rules like 'don't wear white after Labor Day' or 'shoes matching the handbag' are antiquated. Modern women should feel free to experiment.
You have to let go of who you were to allow yourself to become who you are.
Texture is something we forget - it makes outfits look very expensive. You can do a monochromatic outfit, if you're afraid of things that are more colorful and printed, and still create interest.
I understand when u feel overwhelmed style is the 1st thing to go, but its also the 1st thing you can pick back up to get you back on track.
A lot of people have said that I'm super-snarky and mean. But honesty is the only way to get people to change. It's very important to be constructively critical - give people alternatives and you're giving them a new way to see themselves.
Looking relevant, modern, timely and appropriate in terms of your age, body type and lifestyle is not only about the joy of self-expression but a form of self-care: it lets the world know how you want to be perceived and treated.
Style is not a reward for the skinny. It's not, 'iI I'm rich, thin and young.' You may not like your size, but then don't invest in leather leggings. Let yourself want the expensive bag and really love it and show it off and have a ball with it.
Fit is everything. I don't care what your body type is like: If you're not wearing clothes that fit you, you can't have style.
Smart beauty is about looking your best and feeling your best and never overpaying for it.
The fact is, there is only one body ideal in fashion, and most likely, you don't have it.
Less is more. I truly believe in buying a few pieces with better construction.
If you only have work clothes - the black trouser and ribbed turtleneck you got four years ago at the Gap - you're not participating in your own style personality.
