A little over two weeks ago, as I sat at an outside table enjoying dinner, I looked up and saw a group of women passing by. One of them I recognized immediately as this woman from The Sartorialist. Everything about her was the same from the hat to the proportions, the only thing missing was her bike.
This immediately got me thinking about a signature style. With this particular hat, she definitely stands out and even if I hadn’t seen her on The Sartorialist, I would have noticed her anyway.
A couple of months ago, I felt the need to purge a lot of things from my closet that didn’t accurately represent me anymore. After noting what was kept, I still can’t pin down what my definitive style is! Except that it has always been eclectic and I find that I like what I like. (Which I believe is part of my signature style, right?) Of course there are those requisite periods of time where I am obsessed, say with a particular scarf, skirt, etc.
While I am sorting it out, I do have respect for those who are completely committed to their look. For example, fashion writer Lynn Yaeger, the very shy (not) Kanye West, dandy about town (eyebrow defined) Patrick McDonald, singer Kelis and of course Anna Wintour’s bob.
Lynn has maintained this same look (hair, makeup, etc) for years.
Whether it is casual or not, Kanye rocks the hell out of his outfits.
Kelis has great style, look at these high-waisted jeans.
This bob is iconic at this point.
Do you guys have a signature style or a favorite article of clothing that you are loving right now or have loved?
