Honestly, most of the time that I see someone with great style, it's their ACCESSORIES that I notice first. They could be wearing black leggings and a tee, but if they have a cute hat, bold lip and cute booties, that's what I notice! I am a firm believer in simplicity and basics, with an accessory or two to finish off a look.
Most days that I get compliments on my outfits are the days when I'm wearing sweats or leggings. Seriously! I'll throw on a leather jacket or trench, a hat, some cool flats or boots...definitely a great lipstick... these are the things that pull you together and make you look confident. Even on the days when you are just wearing sweats! Sometimes I can't believe the nice things people say, but I have to assume it's the accessories that are doing all the work....not my leggings.
Give it a try and I promise you'll get the same results. Even if you are wearing frumpy clothes....grab your best coat, some earrings and a pair of shades, and I swear no one will even notice you are [gasp], comfortable! Next time you leave the house, leave the fleece at home and grab the structured coat. You won't be sorry. And you'll still be comfy as ever. That's my secret.
