Personal Uniform Makeovers: Part 4

Today we'll talk about the uniform of students everywhere trying to look more polished than the tee-and-jeans wearing crowd (among others). Many people think they are upgrading their personal uniform by changung their tees to polos and while they are (a little bit) there is a lot more you can do for your image with just as little effort.

Personal Uniform Makeovers: Part 3

Today we'll talk about how to get dress for occasions with no effort or planning needed.
What do you do when a dressier occasion comes by unnanounced? You likely have a dressy fall-back outfit so you can just get dressed and walk out the door. But wouldn't it be great if, after doing just that, you arrived and were the best dressed at the scene?
You'd be wrong to think that can't happen with a personal uniform, you just need some teaks in yous!
Most dressy fall-backs include dressy pants and a flowy top. However, this is seldom the best look you can manage. And no matter how much of a hurry you are in, there is no way you'll be best dressed in flipflops, no matter how shiny.
I'll help you create the perfect personal uniform for any special occasion!

Personal Uniform Makeovers: Part 2

Do you work or study in a business casual setting? Do you feel your personal uniform sometimes doesn't rise to the occasion? Then today's segment is for you! 
We're going to learn how to make a casual work uniform that's polished and poised so you'll look like you're in full control, even if it just took you five minutes getting dressed!

Take the personal uniform on the left. Would you hire this person? Send them to meet an important client? Just because it's a casual setting, doesn't mean you should look like a slob. This also applies to people working at home, students, interns or volunteers. There is no downside in making yourself look good!
  • We've talked about top shapes before. Step away from boxy shirts, droopy patterns and colors that aren't the best for your skin.
  • You probably think you look more professional in khakis than jeans. And you're right, as long at they fit! Tailored clothing looks more expensive and makes you look better. Baggy pants and ratty colors just make you look lazy and clueless
  • If you're trying to look anything a step up from ultra ultra casual, ditch the flip flops. Also, there is no such thing as "fancy" flip flops. No wedges, glitter, leather, etc.


Now, after we got that out of the way, let's rebuild an uniform that you'll be excited to wear in the morning!

Personal Uniform Makeovers: Part 1

Even if you don't realize it, you have a personal uniform. A sort of fall-back combination for when you can't be bothered to come up with a "real" outfit. This month we will identify some personal uniforms that lack style and turn them upside their heads, creating flattering outfit formulas that are just as easy to wear!

Today we'll approach a common personal uniform for people working in casual offices or studying: jeans, a "fancy" shirt and flats. These people (and I include myself there too) think a shirt is a big improvement from a tee, so we're in the clear, fashionably speaking. Not really, though. Has it ever happened that you came across a mirror in your "uniform" and didn't think it was quite right? Or, in going about your day, wish you had better fall-back outifts?

Here is the answer to your prayers! Every element of your formula can be improved and the final outfit will remain just as easy to throw on and go about in, except you'll look so much better! Take a look below
