I know that I have a sort of style "feel" that endures...there are pieces of clothing that feel like "me", whether it's ten-years-ago me or today me. I'm not so sure, however, that I have a signature piece or look. When those wardrobe planners unfurl in front of me, I just don't always have faith in the definitive results. My results would probably be different six months from now..and I don't want to go through all that again in six months.
The way I like to approach style is to think about the next season and decide on the silhouettes + colors to which I am drawn. As the weather warms, I'm especially drawn to high-waisted, straight, slightly cropped pants worn with tees, tanks, + slightly fitted sweatshirts. I still like jumpsuits and loose shirt dresses too. I am loving desert tones with a little desert rose thrown into the mix. These three silhouettes + colors focus my warm weather style and wardrobe.
There are a couple of my pieces that can adapted to my preference changes. A pair of thrifted jeans can be tapered a bit. A handmade top that became pajamas is getting cropped into a shorter-than-it-was-before top (quite a testament to the durability of Liberty fabric).
Dressing with less means that the clothing we wear get worn quite a bit, so there are often a few pieces that need to be replaced. The replacements can address the preference shifts and make the rest of the pieces feel a bit fresher. A new color or shape allows older pieces to relate in a new way.
"Less" for the win (again). :)
