Are you just wearing clothes? Or do you actually have a personal style?
How often do you think, “I don’t know what to wear!” Or “I don’t have anything in my closet that I like!”
Can you relate? So many women feel that once they reach a certain age, they should stop trying to be stylish and instead just “dress their age.”
Women know there’s a difference between just putting on clothes every day, and putting together a jaw-dropping style they love—but they don’t know how to do that!
Consider the possibility that you’ve just never been shown how.
That’s where I can help.
I have helped hundreds of thousands of women all around the world transform their wardrobe and their appearance.
But finding a personal style is about so much more than clothes! It affects many areas of your life—often in surprising ways!
10 Unexpected Benefits of Having A Personal Style As You Age
1. It’s easier to shop.
Our Style Guides make shopping simple. You can carry them with you in your purse and make sure each item you pick harmonizes with the Style Guides. (You save so much money this way—and time!)
2. It’s easier (and more fun!) to get dressed in the morning.
Imagine all of your clothes coordinating perfectly with each other. You easily cut your “getting ready” time in half. (Or – use my Grab & Go method I teach to Lifestyle members, and save even more time!)
3. It expresses the true you.
Every day when you get ready, you feel affirmed in who you are. Every time you’re around others, you’re more easily understood and supported. Your clothes match your energy, so people instantly “get” you!
4. You think more positively.
It might seem strange that your thoughts would become more positive once you have a style you love, but think about it: we already know how powerful affirmations are. What you tell your mind, it will believe. Now imagine if you said affirmations to yourself – naturally – every time you caught sight of yourself.
“Wow, I look great.”
“I love who I am!”
“I love how I look!”
When you love yourself, every cell in your body responds to this positive feeling. Your body and mind will thank you for this self-love every day as you get older.
5. When you look put together, you feel put together.
Pay attention to this. When you stay in pajamas all day, it’s hard to feel motivated. But your productivity skyrockets when you put on an actual outfit, do your hair, and add some 5-minute makeup.
6. You eat better.
How does having a good style improve your diet? It’s simple. Accepting and honoring your true self will help you make better choices for yourself, including food! Not to mention, the right clothes on your body take pounds off and make you more attractive (both of which de-age you instantly).
7. Your self-care improves.
We stop putting effort into ourselves when we don’t feel good about ourselves. But once you get the ball rolling by taking care of your appearance, you easily start to prioritize yourself so you can be healthy and happy.
8. As you age, you keep yourself from looking older.
I see so many women falling into the “grandma style” once they get 55 or older. But I say: Grandma is a role, not a style. Stay true to yourself and continue to express the real you, even as you age.
9. The right hairstyle flatters your face and makes you look younger.
As you age, your hair changes. It gets a little drier and can even become thinner. Don’t succumb to the “mature hairstyles” you’ve seen for decades. Get yourself a hairstyle that tells the world, “I’m here!”
10. Get out of the “same old, same old” clothes rut.
