10-14-19 Wear It Right

How many times have you dressed and wondered if you are wearing a style or trend correctly? Do you often have doubts if the fit of your clothing is right? Well, wonder no more. This week, together we explore how to "wear it right".

Just last week while standing in a long check-out line, the woman in front of me turned around and commented on my tied scarf. She said she had noticed me shopping earlier and had always wished she knew how to tie a scarf like mine. I smiled at her and quickly showed her how easy it was...in three quick steps. She was amazed it wasn't that hard to do and said she would be eternally grateful that I showed her how. This woman appreciated this brief moment of style help because now she will start wearing her scarves that are buried away in the depths of her closet. Her smile and excitement about wearing scarves again was a sign of pure gratitude. Yes, sharing is caring-pass it on!

 

Wearing it "right" means you don't look goofy...instead you look stylish and feel "on-trend". 

We all want to fit in and belongThis week's style article (which will post to all Personal Profile memberships this Thursday) will help you "wear it right".

No more guessing how to tie that scarf or how to wear short "booties"...

MSP's Weekly Style Mission

 

We’ve learned from FlyLady.net that you can’t organize clutter. So I ask you, "How does your closet look right now?" I see a couple of “deer in the headlights” faces on some of you, LOL!

This week’s Style Mission is to FLING at least two (2) items from your closet you have not worn in at least 6 months. Be honest. There are at least several items just taking up valuable closet real estate. You have no plans on wearing these items because either they don’t fit, or the color is wrong for you. Fling them NOW!


Release the clutter! You will get more closet space and you will give someone else something new they love when you release your closet clutter! 

It’s a win-win style mission...so let's go! Fling 2 items you no longer wear.

Love, Leslie MSP

 


What SYSters Are Saying

Dear MSP,

Thank you for the help you are giving women so we can dress nice and feel good about ourselves!!!!  I am a "C" body type, and have NEVER felt good about myself--always comparing my body shape to that of my small and petite sisters.  

But after receiving just ONE of your weekly messages and shopping suggestions, I was finally able to catch on to the advice you were giving about what styles of clothes would look best on my shape.  I went into my closet and put together ONE outfit with clothes I already had.  I NEVER would have put these items together before reading your web site and the personal profile, but I did it and wore it the very next day.  I received probably the very best compliment of my life, from my 13 year old son--who told me "Mom, you look kind of elegant today!"  I was THRILLED!

And all I was wearing was a nice pair of jeans, a button shirt that had princess seams and small shoulder pads in it, and some flat loafer type shoes--instead of the typical jeans, t-shirt, and tennis shoes.  What a difference!  And I still felt like I was wearing casual clothes that I could get down on the floor and play with my two year old in!  

Thank you SO MUCH--for helping me to finally love and appreciate my body shape, and showing me how to accent my positive points! Susan

 

What does "pant rise" mean?

Dear Leslie, Could you please explain the difference between low rise and mid rise pants or jeans? Thanks.

 

MSP HERE:

Dear SYSter,

Certainly. I'm happy to explain the difference between low and mid rise pants. But, first let me define what "rise" means. Rise is the difference from the middle of the crotch seam (right between your legs) to the top of the waistband. A pant's rise usually ranges from 7 inches to 12 inches. 

Pant rise is important because it determines where your pants sit on your body, which in turn creates your perceived waistlineRise can work for you or against you. On one hand, you can use rise to your advantage by changing your perceived dimensions. On the other hand, choosing the wrong type of rise will make you look out of proportion. Low rise jeans are good for people with short torsos, mid rise is all around flattering for all, and high rise looks good on people with average to long torsos.

Discover your torso length, then select your best pant rise.

Love, Leslie MSP

 

Hi Leslie! 



I've been a "syster" for about 6 months now and what a difference! I'm a petite "A" that used to wear black and brown and wore clothes too loose for me! Now I am wearing the right colors (Yay for seasonal colors!) and the right cuts for my body type!  


Today a young mom complimented me and said that every time she sees me I am always put together and look nice! :o)  I wore a pencil skirt, a nice tank under a sunshine yellow cardigan, a pearl beaded bracelet, and sandals (and of course light make-up) 

I always vowed to myself that as a wife and a new mom... that I would be a "hot wife/mama".... and not the opposite! 

Thank you for helping me build more confidence in myself! Now I am more willing to interact with people because I don't worry about what I am wearing! 

And my husband still thinks I'm a "hot mama!" :o)
