Sartoriality


Some people have some great rules:-
I will hold strong in my belief in Kanye-esque colour combinations that make other people asked me if I dressed in the dark, but that make me feel like the coolest rule-breaker in town.
Whereas Tim Gunn, who said that physical comfort in clothing is totally overrated. “If you’re in a lackadaisical comfort haze, you can’t be engaged in the world the way you need to be.”
The thing about both these quotes is that they show people that they care about their appearance. It’s one of those things that is very key to how you perceive yourself and indeed to how other people perceive you,what you wear. And, in order to present a good front to people, you need to look good. Obviously this is entirely subjective and one person’s version of cool is another person’s idea of style hell. It’s not for nothing that I have the nickname ‘Wardrobe of Shame’. However, in my defence, I have not yet succumbed to the fleece, given up and bought a technical jacket or indeed, bought anything from Jack Wills.
I have however, been a total victim to the cold and am continually huddled under a pile of cardigans, scarves and fleecy boots (Fit Flop boots – more on those later…). So, it’s time to man up and fly straight, look sharp, check in and be engaged.
How am I going to do this though? What should I do? I have a closet full of clothes I love and a selection of lovely accessories. The accessories are mainly in a box in a cupboard and the clothes are still hanging in the wardrobe while I wear jeans and cardigans.
Tell me your secrets to getting dressed and looking good …
