Style Thinking

The Style Primer You Didn’t Know You Needed. (But You Do.)

New Year, TRUE You

It’s the new year, and we’re kicking if off with a way to get serious about taking control of your personal style. Not just for your clothes, but for the style choices you make for your home and for those that you make to enhance your interactions with other people. Your personal style is in everything you do, and now is the time to bring it to life by flipping the script and making your style about you.

A discussion of whether bordeaux or black tights go with a navy suits can be fun (heated, even!), but unfortunately most style talk usually becomes a question of what’s “in,” and what is of course, “out.”

Honestly I bristle at the hint of in/out talk.

It’s so didactic. I think it’s much more gratifying (and helpful) to talk about: What’s lovely? What is gorgeous for you? What makes you feel great? All of the above!

This uncomfortable feeling that surrounds the in/out rules for so many people is why our annual “New Year, TRUE You” event focus is important right now.

New Year, TRUE You Event

In this great, new month of January, we’ll introduce four TRUE fundamentals of personal style, one each week. And rest assured, while these fundamental subjects will be all about how you can approach your personal style, they won’t be a discussion of “in and out.”

They will help you lay the groundwork for building the confidence to make style choices that fit the most important person in the conversation—you.


Consider the next four weeks as an introduction to the “brass tacks” of what I consider the basis of effective Style Thinking. Integrating these fundamental ideas as you develop your own style identity will help you elevate your personal style, and they are relevant to all the style spheres of your life. And—back to the question of tights and suits and shoes (or draperies, dining rooms, and objets d’art, or the components of any style sphere), when you are using these fundamental ideas your own approach to style, yours will emerge from a broader view. It will be so much more than “in/out”, and more fulfilling, too.
