Individual Style

Almost every woman enjoys the freedom of selection when it comes to fashion. This includes wearing distinctive clothes that express individual personalities and tastes. Today women are just a click away from ordering head-to-toe ensembles. While online shopping offers convenience and competitive pricing, we take the risk of getting into a style rut because we tend to shop for designers we know. As a result, buyers for online outlets tend to focus on tried and true merchandise and we end up with limited choices. To find or reclaim your fashion identity, try shopping at boutiques that carry unique clothes and accessories. Build a relationship with the owner or sales staff who can focus on your style and update you about new designers and collections. Small boutique merchandise needs to be distinctive and, to put it simply, special.......and isn't that what all women want to be?

Casually Chic

There's a reason why women are wearing workout clothes from morning 'til night: it's called "comfort".

As dress requirements have relaxed considerably, the weekday business uniform exception has changed from "Casual Friday" to "Relaxed Everyday Wear".

Women are looking for fabrics that are comfortable, stretchy, easy to put on and don't require layers of undergarments. Getting dressed in the morning without giving thought to what to change into afterward is something women want....and designers have been answering the call.

While all this casualness may be a fashion mainstay now and in the future, it's still important to incorporate that ever-important style element into any look.

Instead of donning your usual yoga gear try sporting your look with a leather jacket instead of a sweatshirt or performance jacket. Switch your shoes from sneakers to a stylish sandal or flat. Also, carry a great handbag in a contrasting color or luxury hide. You will distinguish yourself from the workout memes with your own fashion identity and unique look.

Workout clothes are a staple in almost every closet, but why not make your look unique? It's as easy as stretch, breathe and smile.
