Earlier in the month we introduced you to award winning personal and fashion stylist, Lisa Talbot. She is the lady to trust when it comes to your wardrobe de-cluttering, style revitalisation and general fashion savviness. To continue our “New Year, New You” season, Lisa has written a guest blog about our wardrobes, and their personality! Read on to learn more and be inspired.
Your wardrobe does have a personality all of its own!
When you open your wardrobe does it fill you with excitement or dread? Does your wardrobe reflect who you are and what you do?
I can hear many of you reading this feature answering ‘dread’ to the first question and ‘no’ to the second question. Well, don’t panic..you are not alone!
Did you know our clothes represent who we are in the form of our style personality……do you recognise yourself in the style personalities below? You may be a mixture of a couple or you may sit in one more obviously than others.

Fabrics – natural woven, soft knits, linen, suede, leather, denim, corduroy

So, who are you?
Your style personality will help you understand why you buy the style and colour of clothes you do. But, to really make sure your wardrobe works for you it also needs to tell the story of what you do ie; single working lady, working mum, full time mum, part time mum or full time working woman. Depending on what you do, work out what clothes you need. For example if you are a part time working mum who works 3 days a week your wardrobe needs to have work wear for 3 days and more casual items for the other 4 days.
Trust me, when your wardrobe works for you, it really will make you smile when you open that door each day.
Lots of love
