Building the PERFECT WARDROBE with the FAB OUTFIT FORMULA
In the past two lessons we've covered:
what to look for in clothes to suit your shape and why you shouldn’t shop your size
The simple 2-minute trick to create a flattering silhouette no matter if your body type is a pear, apple, or banana
how to get clothes to work harder to suit any occasion - work, playground or Sunday brunch!
They might seem simple but they're practical tips that can really make a difference in making your outfits pop. Just takes a bit of practice and working with what you’ve got!
If you haven’t seen the first two lessons, I recommend going back to check them out.
Everything I’m teaching you builds on top of each other...
Each lesson is part of a system that creates winning outfits for you every single day!
When I was studying to become an internationally accredited stylist, I was thrilled because I felt more confident putting my outfits together. I was learning so many awesome theories! Each day I’d practice by putting my outfits together and seeing so many possibilities.
I was having a ball.
There was only one problem: my wardrobe was still expanding, and I wasn't getting dressed any faster.
Hunky started complaining that I’ve slowly taken over his wardrobe. He was right, it was getting out of control. The sheer amount of clothes was weighing me down. I knew I had to find a solution.
Guess what I did next? I started wearing similar colours!
You know the old-school rule: matching shoes, handbags, jackets...
It became simpler and easier...sure.
Monochrome and matchy-matchy, not that there’s anything wrong with it...
But it wasn’t interesting.
It just didn’t feel like me!
If you’ve met me in person you’ll know what I mean. ;)
The problem that we run into at this point is that we get:
bored wearing the same thing
sick of black and neutrals
the not-quite-right feeling
all of the above
I ran into this same problem. So did my clients. This is the same problem with capsule wardrobes. They're great in theory and can work hard for some of us, but they don't work for everyone!
Neutrals and capsule wardrobes don’t work for everyone because not all of us suit black or neutrals. Some of us look more alive in colour than neutrals. And in our guts we know it.
So we get bored with all our clothes so we end up going out and buying more.
You're not alone in this because the next lesson I’m going to teach you is one of the most popular lessons I’ve ever taught.
Want to know a formula that gives impact to an outfit? What does it take so we can nail it every time?
The Fab Outfit Formula
With this simple formula:
you can create fabulous outfits in minutes - add impact to dress it up or dress it down to suit any occasion
it’s an easy way to add interest to your outfit so you won’t get bored and end up buying more clothes
and best of all - it adds a touch of your very own personality in anything you wear - without the old matchy-matchy! (I’ll tell you more about #matchymatchynono later.)
YOU DON'T NEED FIVE BLACK SHIRTS
You just need a light, a dark, a colour and a print.
What I’m about to teach you has been a hit with my clients, and this is the LDCP Formula.
I’ve tried and tested this myself for years, I live and breathe it each day. Now thousands of women implement it in their daily lives, and they keep telling me how it’s changed the way they dress.
How does it work?
When you put an outfit together, make sure there’s a light, a dark, a colour and a print.
Your print can be a necklace, a scarf, or even the detail on your sandals.
Yep, that’s it!! So simple, right?
Here are some photos to illustrate this system better:
Like our first two lessons, it might be hard to do at first.
That's because we’ve all heard different things and we’ve kind of set our own habits and ways. And that's ok, just take baby steps!
once you learn, practice, and apply LDCP, you will see how it takes your outfit to a whole new level.
What's more, it’s also the key to knowing what you need in your wardrobe!
