How to Dress Well

I found this article at It has some good points for starting off the year looking good.

The elements of being well dressed:

1. Organization: An organized dresser knows what she owns and the items she needs to complete a look. When she goes shopping she has a list and sticks to it. Her clothes are neat and organized where they can be easily seen and outfits can be put together quickly.

--- An easy way to do this is to divide you closet into sections, and then color code and group each section. It would look like all the blacks pants are beside the black skirts, the white blouses are beside the white sweaters etc ..
  • Work Clothes
  • Casual Clothes
  • Accessories
  • Shoes

2. Knowing yourself: A well-dressed woman knows her personal style so she is never tempted to buy an item that is not perfect for her. She has accessed her lifestyle, her personality and knows what style looks best on her and what she feels most comfortable wearing.

Ladies -- please don't wear "fashonable" items just because they are fashionable. Please make sure that they fit and look good on you. Way too many women are wearing the low and super low cut jeans and they have love handles and waterfalls flowing over the sides. This is not a good look for anyone.

3. Knowing your body type: Women who know their body type and what lines look best on them feel better about the choices they make. Shopping is much simpler because unflattering shapes can be passed over and a lot of money saved when she knows what looks best.

So, you are organized, you know yourself and your body type. Is there anything else? A well-dressed woman is able to take all these elements and put them together with ease. She knows how to match styles, how accentuate, what to wear to certain events and is confident about her choices. In every situation she is feels confident about how she is dressed and is free to tackle the business at hand.
