"Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak.”
We can all thank American business woman and style icon, Rachel Zoe for this awesome quote and for good reason. I believe this phrase rings true for each and every one of us. We’re all unique and that’s what makes us extra spesh. And if you thought it couldn’t get any better, with our uniqueness also comes our own individual style.
In my own learnings, I’ve found that once a person comes to realise who they are inside and out, any sense of insecurity seems to flush away, making room for a flurry of contentment and confidence.
Confidence is a beautiful trait. Those who are genuinely comfortable in their skin are generally full of positivity, which is why they’re so well received and appreciated by many. They see the good, give praise and radiate kindness. Wouldn’t we all like to feel like that? And the great thing is… we can. Whoohoo!
I’m going to paint a picture for you. In this scenario we have two girls who are both equally fabulous inside and out, however their perceptions of themselves couldn’t be more far a part.
Fashion is forever evolving, however there is one exception to the rule – all things black and white. These two staple shades generally look good on everyone. Whenever unsure of an outfit, I find any design in black will generally be a winner. For decades black has been referred to as a classic and sophisticated shade, and if you thought that wasn’t enough, it’s super slimming too. You seriously can’t go wrong!
I recently came across an online apparel store based in Melbourne, Australia. They’re called The Zebra Effect. As their name appropriately suggests, they specialise in all things zebra! No, not actual zebras (thank goodness!), but in actual fact they’re all about black, white and neutral based fashion pieces. So in other words, any girl’s go-to destination!
