Outfit Tips for Every Type
- Bright, Animated Type 1
Putting together an outfit might not look like a process for you—not a structured one anyway. That’s great! Embrace your random, spontaneous nature and put on whatever feels fresh. Once you’re dressed, stop long enough to check in that you’re wearing something that feels fun to you.
Pay attention to what Marcy says in the video about her biggest reward with mixing color.
- Subtle, Soft Type 2
Your attention to detail is a strength, but don’t let details overwhelm you. Start with a particular item. Then assembe details around it. You might be more willing to try something new if you remind yourself that you don’t have to repeat anything you don’t like.
Watch the video to see how Anne paired two colors she normally wouldn’t. She looks great!
- Rich, Dynamic Type 3
Like a Type 2, you might choose an item you want to wear and build an outfit around it. But you’ll be swift about it. Make sure your closet’s set up for quick, practical results. If your priority item for the day isn’t working, scrap it and go with an outfit you know will work.
In the video, Sarah talks about items she likes to start with, and I explain my funny approach to clothes I haven’t worn recently.
- Bold, Striking Type 4
When you’re Dressing Your Truth, you have a high standard for what you keep in your closet and put on your body. That’s great! Don’t add anything to an outfit that doesn’t meet your standard. If you don’t like something—even if it worked for you in the past—don’t feel obligated to hold onto it.
I wonder how many Type 4’s share Sheryl’s experience with bold color.
