Happy Fashion Friday, ladies! At your request, I am going to discuss how I use my style adjectives to dress daily, and let’s begin with how to tell the world you have creative, dramatic style.
In case you are a new reader, allow me to explain why I am a proponent of dressing with style adjectives…and why I have done this for years.
Building a wardrobe with style adjectives will save money, make life easier, and build your own confidence.
My current adjectives are polished, creative, approachable, joyful, and current.
Every time I am going away from the house, I look in the mirror and ask does this outfit speak these five adjectives? If the answer is yes, then I head out with confidence!
Today, I want to demonstrate ways I speak my creative or (some would say) dramatic style.
Also, I do believe the adjectives creative and dramatic can be slightly different.
I see “creative” as more artisan, and “dramatic” as more cutting edge and more trendy.
I hope to do a post soon and just focus on the adjective dramatic for those who include it in your list of adjectives.
For me this is the fun part of my style and I know others identify me with this adjective.
So, let’s have some fun!
HOW TO TELL THE WORLD YOU HAVE CREATIVE, DRAMATIC STYLE: #1
#1. Creative, dramatic style can be expressed in prints, special pieces and design elements.
First let me explain that my adjectives are selected with purpose. I believe that it is my creative side that makes me approachable, joyful, and current.
It is the word polish that reigns my style in and keeps me from being too creative or dramatic…most outfits in that category I would not feel comfortable wearing.
I like a balanced creative style. And when worn together, my style adjectives speak Pamela-style.
I do believe that loving the artistry and creativity of fashion helps me to get out of my box from time to time and enjoy it!
I show my creative, dramatic style often with prints, special pieces and different design elements such as the embroidery in this Soft Surroundings top I have owned for awhile.
The design technique of fraying the hemline on these jeans is a creative element I like and works with the other adjectives…but the distressed denim with holes does not sync with my polished adjective.
With these white jeans from JCP, you see more jean than fray…it makes sense to me that it appears more polished than the ones with holes.
I hope this is helping those of you who have asked about the style adjectives.
Here are a few garments currently in stores that I would call creative or dramatic in all price points:
HOW TO TELL THE WORLD YOU HAVE CREATIVE, DRAMATIC STYLE: #2
#2 Creative, dramatic style can be expressed with accessories
Regular readers know how I love accessories and they are the key to creative, dramatic styles.
If you look at the scarf, necklace, and sneakers in the second picture, then you see what I mean.
Women who I consider to be the most creative, dramatic and artistic dresses are all magicians with accessories and show how important they are.
I give thought with every outfit of what my accessories will say about me and how they will speak my style adjectives.
I have to mention at this point World Finds….a brand I enjoy supporting without compensation.
Many of you are familiar with this KANTHA GARLAND NECKLACE I wear often by World Finds…such a fun creative piece and I get comments on it whenever I wear it.
It is easily one of my favorite pieces.
World Finds recently sent to me these creative birth month bracelets with lovely affirmations for the month and with a botanical theme.
I was excited to see the traits on the July bracelet since July is my birth month….dignity, grace, positivity!
Love that! Here are a few more accessories currently for sale that affirm creative, dramatic style:
I am sure you noticed I did not include shoes. I will find some fun shoes for you in the July sales.
Are there any questions about how you speak a creative, dramatic style?
These two points are what I follow the most.
SALES IN PROGRESS
