How to Create Your Own Fabulously Fantastic Fashions

How to Create Your Own Fabulously Fantastic Fashions

By Judyth Piazza CEO (Editor)


Finding one`s own style is often a result of an outgrowth of other creative pursuits.  However, when searching for one`s own style it is important not to just emulate the latest fashions on television, but instead emphasis how to make yourself unique.

First, you will want to make a list of your casual and formal activities.  Empty your closets, drawers and trunks to get a clear picture of what you will need when it comes to creating your own fabulously functional fashions. 

One particular rule that is a must-do when forming your new look - is if you haven`t worn it in a year, get rid of it! This can be difficult for those of us who form attachments to clothes we know we paid too much money for, or things that "would be perfect if only we had_____to wear it with. "  Just let it go, it is just crowding your closet as well as wrinkling those clothes you wear all the time.

Also, keep in mind to carefully consider weather, color, texture and style.   Next, choose a palette that is flattering to your skin tone and that responds to your preferences and needs as well as being fun.
Remember that no fashion style is set in stone.  This gives you the opportunity to let yourself shine through.  Black, white, browns and grays are great neutrals. Make sure that have as many items as possible that will work well with one another so you can make the most of your wardrobe.

Be wary of trendy pieces that cost a lot. They are here today and gone tomorrow, but could leave you left labeled as a fashion follower rather than a fashion starter. Still, do not be afraid of having fun and creating your own style.

Not everyone can drop $200 for a filmy gossamer top that has a one-season life span. For some of us, laying out $415 for a pair of leopard-print calf-leather Stuart Weitzman boots is not an option "it is a car payment.

So now that you are armed with this bounty of feel good, look great ammunition, you just may leave everyone speechless because you look so awe-inspiring.
