The lovely ladies in my Facebook Group Stylish Confident You! often ask questions which is great. One of my group members recently wanted some advice on styling an outfit she had bought for a special occasion and I was fascinated to read the comments. Everyone who responded had a different suggestion, none of them were wrong, and what was clear to me was their choices were entirely due to their different Style Personalities. I’ve talked about Style Personality before, but it’s a subject always worth revisiting as it can cause some confusion.Your Style Personality is based on the clothes and accessories you would wear all the time if money and lifestyle were no object. Your Style Personality determines how you shop, how often you shop, where you shop and how much you spend.
