Your core energy is ever-present and powerful in developing your ideal fashion style. How you dress defines who you are, and also gives onlookers a lot of information about you and what you want in life.
The first step to managing an authentic wardrobe that represents who you are, is defining your innate energy – the core that you were born with. Are you predominately creative, sporty, dramatic, traditional or elegant?
If being creative or wanting to express more of the “unique individual that you are” is your wish then adding distinctive, artistic expressions to your appearance will meet that goal. People who meditate and take an intellectual path through life are using creative energy. Keen intuition and sensitivity is their gift.
Perhaps you’d like to be more approachable, and want to encourage more socializing into your lifestyle. If health, fitness, wholesome competition, and an energetic tempo is how people see you living life, then expressing the sporty element is a consistent style for you.
When it is time to be seen – because you need followers or because people need to pay attention and notice you, it’s a dramatic emphasis that you want as your statement. Your purpose could be social, romantic, or business related: as in career changes, leadership, political aspirations, etc. It speaks fun, daring, power and excitement.
Times when you want to deliver a message of trust, reliability, and stability, or loyalty as a sincere friend or dependable business colleague…express more traditional. When you are surrounded by people and places that are very classic or conservative, a traditional element of dress will be a connector.
Incorporating elegance into your appearance will relate to the more formal engagements and activities you enjoy. You mingle with and attract a more reserved, refined, or aristocratic crowd. There is an energy of status and culture represented by this person. Define what motivates you and makes you feel fulfilled, and begin expressing the true you.
