Most of you are not aware that I have a B.A. in Psychology and spend almost 7 years of my medical career working in Psychiatric Research. During that time, I learned a lot about how personalities have an impact on how you perceive the world, your relationship with others, your response to things and people around you, and your personal decisions.
But, were you also aware it has a major impact on your style? Everyone has what I call a “Style Personality” and I include this information in the style book of all of my clients.
Why? Because it is critical to first understand your style personality in order to nail down your authentic style. And in doing so, makes getting dressed and knowing what to wear and what to purchase a whole lot easier!
Your Personality + Your Authentic Style = Your Style Personality
Take my client Katherine, for example. She was struggling to find her authentic style and purchased clothes that really did look great on here but she lacked the confidence to wear them. She had an idea about what she envisioned her style to be, but just could not land on it and didn’t know why. After an initial consultation via video, a review of her completed questionnaires, and the preparation of her style book, I concluded her style personality was “Polished Edgy.”
Her response, “You totally nailed it. This is me!”
Her inspiration board and selection of pieces I picked for her were all surrounding her style personality. Not only did she find her authentic style, but her true style personality. Her style transformation was stunning! The confidence she demonstrated in her AFTER photos made me smile ear to ear. You could also tell she was comfortable in her style and of course, suited her perfectly.
I believe your style is an expression of who you are. And when you know your style personality, you are able to demonstrate your authentic style in ways that show confidence, elegance, timeless, fashion that never expires because you are true to who you are. And it is reflected through your style.
Do you ever look at a women and think, “Wow, she seems confident and content.” I can bet she knows her personality, authentic style and style personality very well!
I have determined there are a variety of style personalities and although you can have qualities of more than one, there is one that is most true to you. One that will speak directly to you. And when you hear it and understand it, you can start to build your wardrobe around it. I’m also positive you already have clothes hanging in your closet now that reflect this personality, you just need need help bringing it to life.

P.S. Next week I will be starting a series on why your style matters, why it isn’t arrogant nor greedy to want to look nice, and how your style can be achieved on a budget. PLUS, I have some really cool things coming down the pike soon that I don’t want you to miss!
Have a beautiful weekend.
