The great thing about fashion is that it’s not just a “one size fits all.” When I say this, I don’t actually mean size, but rather style. We express ourselves through our fashion and it’s what makes us, us. Imagine if everyone had the same style? BORING. No matter what your taste is, we’ve compiled a guide to bring out the best “you.” So what’s it going to be? Are you flirtatiously fitted, painlessly preppy, have an oversized obsession, sexy in stripes or fabulously flowy? Let’s find out.
This look is for the flirtatious woman who loves wearing fitted clothing to show off sexy curves. Look for pieces with with gathered material in places you would want to show off such as the waist. Finding fitted clothes, instead of reverting back to middle school and wearing less of it, will allow you to look awesome without coming across as being slutty. There is a time and place to show skin!

If you are the kind of woman who drools over the Ralph Lauren catalogue, listen up. The preppy look is a timeless look- crisp, clean and classic, what’s not to love? To avoid falling victim to the stereotypical “preppy polo”, try mixing plaids with neutral sweaters and flats. You can even mix a polo with a sweater draped over your shoulders as seen above or try knotting button up shirts together at the bottom for a retro take on the look.

The oversized look is one of my favorites for the winter. It’s cozy, comfortable and an easy style to throw together on those chilly days in December, when getting up is nearly impossible. To avoid coming off looking like an Olsen twin, pair your oversized item with a tight opposite. For example, if you wear an oversized sweater, try wearing skinny jeans. It will add contrast to the bulky sweater on top, while still showing that there’s a person underneath those clothes!

Stripes can not only be very flattering, but also interesting to look at. They add dimension to an outfit and can be dressed up and down. Don’t be afraid to mix stripes with bold colors. It may seem like you need to go with more of a neutral color at first, but once you start playing around you’ll see how much fun you can have.

For more of a dressed up look, flowing fabrics are elegant and bring out the inner greek goddess within. It’s a refreshing break from more traditional and simple dresses. Depending on the event you’re attending, you can choose from a longer or shorter dress. Either way, you will feel like a million bucks.
