Defining Style

Coco Chanel

Do you have a signature accessory?  Is there something that friends and colleagues associate with you and only you?   If you’re having a hard time identifying your signature accessory, take a moment out to really give it some thought.  Honestly, if you have to think about it, you probably don’t have a signature accessory.  If  you come up with nothing, fret not, here are a few tips to help you define your style.  To be clear, your signature accessory can be anything from a watch to the scent you wear. Whatever it is, it should be something that others associate with you. For example, for my friend Susan, it’s her great short haircuts.  As you contemplate what to choose to help further define you, find something you love.  Something that makes your heart leap! Think about that well-dressed friend, is there something about her that makes her stand out from the crowd?  Is it her beautiful watch, that fact that she always wears danglely earrings, her cool red eye glasses or her funky silver jewelry?  Coco Chanel’s was pant suits and bunches of long dramatic pearl necklaces. Stacy London’s defining style is the grey streak in her hair.  Niecy Nash wouldn’t be caught dead walking up to the messiest house in the country without her signature flower tucked behind her ear.  Anna Wintour’s signature accessories are her bobbed hair and big sunglasses. Cardigans have become synonymous with Michelle Obama.  What’s synonymous with you?
