Why a Style Personality Is Important

As with any transformation, taking action and deciding you’re ready to make change is the key to success and I know that getting this far means you’ve already made a commitment to yourself.

Imagine for a moment what it would feel like to start your day without the frustration of not knowing what to wear, how to wear it, or wondering whether you look like something the cat dragged in the night before.  Regardless of whether you’re stuck in a style rut or you’re in need of a few tweaks to refresh your signature look there is one thing that you can start doing today that will help get you on the right track.

Uncovering your style personality is the key to aligning who you are and what you do

To look and feel great your identity (who you are) needs to align with your image (what you wear). What you wear has the power to express what you feel and what you want the people around us see…or not see.

Oftentimes we lose ourselves in the roles we play at home, at work or when we want to fit in. We shove our uniqueness into a box and lock it away for fear that we may just stand out from the crowd or we’ll appear different – but it is that very difference that makes you who you are and if you hide it, it will come back to bite you…hard on your behind!

Unlocking that box and letting your uniqueness shine through builds confidence. It’s powerful and it quickly tells the world you’re comfortable in your own skin.

Here’s some questions to get you thinking about your style personality.  Remember there are no boundaries to creating your style personality, it’s an evolutionary process so have fun with this process:
• What is your biggest challenge around your image?
• What would your world look like if you were totally comfortable in your own skin?
• What sort of business do you own/work in?
• Who are your clients?
• What do your clothes need to do for you each day e.g. what’s their function?
• What is your environment like?
• How would your friends describe your personality? e.g. creative, conservative
• When you walk into a crowded room, how do you want to be perceived?
• What do you enjoy wearing most and why?
• What colours do you love?
• What are your hobbies and interests?
• Whose style do you admire/like?

Once you’ve answered these questions start to explore a a little deeper.  Use Pinterest and create a Your Style Board or for a more tactile approach, cut out images from magazines and create an Inspiration Board that can be hung inside your wardrobe.  Have fun!!

Here’s to your confident success,

    Leanne,

    I think it’s like the fairytale, “The Emperor’s Clothes”. No one wants to be the one to stand out by pointing out that he’s in his underwear. I’m not sure if it’s just women, though. I read a study recently that said that 82% of business owners are stuck in their businesses because of fear. Are they afraid to ask for help? Probably, but we don’t know what we don’t know.

    Personally, I am trying to be better about asking for help. I love to learn and always try to pass on any nuggets of wisdom I pick up because I figure it will just add value to someone who will benefit from the knowledge. We can all be a teacher to someone else.

      Thanks for your comment Robin and I agree we all can be a teacher and share what we have learned to benefit someone else. I love that you are trying to get better at asking also…it takes practice!
