Summer’s Here and the Time is Right … for a Black-out

by Traci McBride

Instead of the usual Q & A this month, I’d like to present a spring/summer challenge to readers:

WOMEN — Banish the black shoes. You might wonder if I’m off my rocker! The most common situation I find in closets all over Northeast Ohio is either all black shoes or mostly black shoes with a navy or brown thrown in there. I understand why women do this. They are thinking black is a basic; a staple that goes with everything since it is a neutral. We have heard this our whole life. Well, I always want to get you to stand out and look fresh, modern, and ageless every day, not just on special occasions.

So how do you avoid black shoes?

When wearing dark or black pants, instead use a pop of color that is part of your power color palette.

Use the season’s favorites of emerald green, sunshine yellow or poppy. Or stick with another neutral, nude (closet match to your skin tone), or metallic. Skirts or dresses in any color (even black if you must) will look fresher with nude, and it elongates your leg line.

MEN — Pop some color in unexpected ways. Men have so much less opportunity to add color since they don’t wear lipstick, earrings or statement necklaces. That doesn’t doom them to navy, brown, black, and grey for life. Splash that suit or sport coat with a eye catching pocket square that doesn’t match your tie.

Casually, an easy, fun, modern approach is to wear a shirt with a contrasting collar and cuff either the whole thing or just the inside area of the cuff and collar. That is an elegant touch. How about a colorful shirt with a vest and jeans? Step out of your usual and be daring.

Create a streamlined daily routine that is joyful and celebrates you

by Traci McBride

Imagine this: You walk into your organized closet that contains only items that make you look your very best, in colors that make you look healthy, energized and ready for anything. With a glance in your personalized “look book,” you effortlessly choose a complete outfit based on the weather, your goals, and your audience.

Obviously, each of us needs to be dressed each day before we leave our homes. Regardless of how you spend your day, getting dressed is universal. Over the years I’ve been told how frustrating it can be to decide what to wear and get all the items needed prepped and ready. I’ve been in closets that have awkward organization, which causes the owner to dig through bins or shelving piled high with clothes to find the “other shoe.” Having the tools you need at your fingertips will completely change how you begin each and every day of your life. Regardless of whether you have a tiny closet or a huge walk-in that you share with your partner, having a system is the key to joy in the closet.

I talk and write about “closet detoxes” all the time, yet most people don’t take the time for this. I find when you have a professional come to your closet and sort through everything with you, it’s an eye-opening experience. Even if you are organized to begin with, I just know you have some items that you are not getting enough out of (or possibly none at all).

The system I’ve created has served so many over the years. While each person is unique with diverse needs, the system still works. We always need to begin in the closet.

Body shape I.D. and power color analysis are two of the tools we use to make the most of our detox. So with a few measurements, some natural light, and my handy color analysis system, we see the best colors to keep and the ones we want to pass along. These very powerful tools serve you daily.

Closet detox: We go through all your clothes, shoes, and accessories for the current season. You put on each item so together we can evaluate the fit, cut, fabric and color in the mirror, as I explain why each item does or doesn’t work on your shape. Then we move to shoes, accessories and coats, taking detailed notes of items we need to build on and colors we need more of, as we rebuild what you have.

Power shopping: Using only the targeted list we created, I shop for all your needs and prepare for your arrival at a dressing room at whatever stores we determined would work best for your needs.

 

 

Master the “mixx” and look book session: You take center stage as each complete outfit is styled just for you as we snap pictures of you in each for your look book. This step is the “secret sauce” to effortless dressing each day.

Here’s How to Bag Those Fashion Disasters

by Traci McBride

Q: What type of items do you suggest carrying in case of a fashion emergency?

A: Love your question! Often, the first time I go shopping with a client, I visit a section of the store that has the type of products they never knew to look for. Then they get excited to know they can be prepared with at least a few basics. Once they have those they can build on needed items.

BASIC FASHION EMERGENCY KIT
(Items with an asterisk I keep in my purse all the time. Everything else I keep in a sealed baggie in my car or tote bag if I’ve packed for an event I’m working):

  • Hollywood garment guards: Protect the part of the garment that directly touches your armpit. Keep the deodorant off and avoid telltale signs of stress. If you have ever ruined a blazer this way, you will stock-up!
  • Hollywood deodorant sponge: When you’re slipping on that top or dress and see white deodorant streaks, this will magically remove them. Avoid using a tissue, trust me!
  • Hollywood fashion tape: Never use a pin for a hem or puckered blouse. Instead use a stripe of this double-sided clear tape for a quick fix. I also show clients how to use it in creative ways. For instance, tack down a scarf so it doesn’t keep moving or sliding.
  • Wet wipes: Quickly removes mud from shoes, purses, etc. Or worse (use your imagination).
  • *Lint roller: Obvious reasons to use a lint roller on yourself, but when you help another person out just before they walk into a meeting or onto a TV set, they will LOVE you forever!
  • Rubber bands in many colors: I love to push up the sleeves of blazers for a more three-quarter-sleeve look, but sometimes they won’t stay that way. I don’t want to keep shoving up my sleeves all day, so I hide a matching color rubber band in a fold, and everything stays in place nicely.
  • Sewing kit: Easy to find and buy at most drugstores or sewing stores: a few basic colors of thread and needles with tiny scissors. I find some use it often and others perhaps a time or two over several years. But when you or someone you know needs it, it’s worth its weight in gold.
  • Foot petals: The first time you wear a pair of shoes with a thin stocking or barefoot and you realize the heel slips, this dandy little “fill-in” pad will correct it.
  • *Floss picks/floss (depending on the type you prefer): The picks are easy to carry and have the added benefit of a pick at one end for those foods that get stuck. You don’t have to put your fingers into your mouth to use one like you do when winding a strand of floss around two fingers. But please only do this in a restroom or some other private place where no one will observe you, as this is rude and unsightly to many.
  • *General make-up for touch-ups: I always carry a lipstick and gloss for use after eating and drinking, and powder for nose shines. Usually for day-to-day use, that is all I need. Should I be running all day and I want to look as fresh at my last appointment as my first, I will bring whatever is needed to do a touch-up for my eyes.
  • *Hand cream: It’s always the item I forget to put on as I leave the house, and as I’m driving I realize my hands look and feel dry. A little mini-sized tube does the trick.
  • *Mini pack of tissue: Sometimes I even color coordinate for fun! Good to have for obvious reasons, especially for others that need a tissue during a luncheon.
  • *Gum/mints/breath spray: Whatever your preference. Again this is for others, too, and is the most asked for item on almost a daily basis.

As for the men, some of the above would be warranted plus the items below. I find it depends on the man, what he does for a living, and how he dresses each day.

  • Extra hanky: For the man that wears a suit and likes to be prepared if a lady needs him.
  • Chap stick: A lot of men I know carry one of these.
  • Nice pen: I wouldn’t recommend a generic pen – make a statement of who you are.
  • Money clip: Some men prefer to carry cash outside of their wallet.
  • Wallet: Leather always makes a nice statement.
  • Pocketknife: Not usually carried with a suit, but most men say they carry one when dressed casually.
  • Mini-flashlight: Useful on a key ring, with a larger one in the car.

Remember, a majority of men are not carrying a bag or tote, so decide what is crucial and avoiding a bulging pocket. Depending on your daily events, you may have other items you always carry or at least have nearby to avoid being uncomfortable or having awkward moments.

Image Matters … Whether We Like It or Not

by Traci McBride

Q: If others make a decision about me just because of the way I look and choose not to do business with me, it’s their loss by being superficial. Why is image so important?

A: Perhaps that is true, but everyone does it on an instinct. It goes way back to the cavemen, who based whether they should fight or flee on visual signs. To this day we use our instinct — very quickly — to make initial assessments of others on what they convey through their appearance, communication, and etiquette. First impressions tend to form patterns of interaction between you and others. That is why image matters. The most powerful tool in your toolbox is having an authentic, flattering image that tells others what they can expect from interacting with us. This alone will define your success in various situations.

Fed Up with Your Look? That’s Step One Toward a New You

by Traci McBride

Q: It’s been more than a dozen years since I’ve done anything new with my hair or clothes “style,” if that is what I can even call it. I’m wearing pretty much the same thing every day, only in a different color. Basic black, with little splashes of color. I’m bored and stuck. Where do I even begin?

A: Well, please know this: It’s realizing you are bored that is the very first step, so you can check step one off your list.

Next, please don’t compound the situation by “doing” something that causes you to run out and spend. At least not until you have a realistic road map. This is a plan of self-discovery. Begin by looking at what is going on in all the retail catalogs. Either order them to come to your home or look online. This is the safest place to begin; not in the store, where you might be tempted too soon.

As for hair, maybe it’s time to work with a new hair stylist. I recommend actually setting up a consultation only with someone who was referred by a friend whose hair you admire. Have them share what options they see with the type and texture of your hair. Bring photos if you have ideas and want to know if they are feasible styles for you. Develop a relationship before just jumping in with both feet.

  • Identify what you like … and why. Is it the color that you’re drawn to in a garment or the cut?
  • Look at store catalogs that you never have before. You want to step outside of the usual retail.
  • Notice the figures of the models. Is it a similar shape to your own or aren’t you being represented in the catalogs?
  • Decide how you want others to perceive you in all aspects of your life: Professionally — polished, modern, detail-oriented, relatable. Socially — fun, easy-going, sexy.
    Now look at those catalogs again while keeping those style words in mind and identify the garments that express that word.
  • Cut out or print photos and attach to a “vision board.” Doing this with clothes, accessories, and shoes will really help you define you personal “signature-style recipe.” You will see colors and patterns begin to emerge. Go for the clothes that make you “feel” good.
  • Get support in understanding your body shape and the styles, shapes, fabrics, and colors that will express your best self.
  • Take the time to plan and clean out your closet. You may find you have a few key pieces that make you feel good and they fit perfectly. Those are the items you may want to build upon with other garments to build a fresh cluster (generally five to 12 items that work into multiple outfits).
Enjoy the process and you will get so much more out of it. If you have an attitude of dread, it won’t turn out well for you. The way you walk through your life will influence everything that happens in your life. Live out loud!

BODY LANGUAGE SPEAKS LOUDER THAN VOICE WHILE PRESENTING

by Traci McBride

Q: I’m preparing for my first major presentation in front of our entire company of 200, and I am not sure how to dress. I will be on stage and my image will be projected onto screens — including close-ups.

A: Taking the spotlight is exciting. Remember the percentages: 60 percent is VISUAL, 30 percent is BODY LANGUAGE and only 10 percent is VERBAL. Consider where your audience’s attention will be as you prepare your presentation. Let me share some tips to keep in mind.

Just as you practice what you will say, practice while wearing the outfit you choose for the event. Its best to know how the clothes feel, especially if they are new or you have not worn all the pieces in the same combination before. I actually suggest videotaping yourself in your chosen outfit, shoes included, as you go through your speech. A dress rehearsal will save you from awkward moments.

body-language-group

Being visible is the key to keeping the attention of the audience. Learn ahead of time what your surroundings look like, including the background color of the room. This will help you make the best choices. Consider every angle of your appearance. If you’re a woman, be mindful of cleavage as well as the length of your skirt or dress. If you are on a stage, you won’t want to be giving a “special show” to the front row. Be aware of what angles the cameras will be shooting from — up high, level with you or from below. You wouldn’t want a camera to record you from above at such an angle it appears a normally modest neckline is showing too much. Keep it simple but show your shape. Avoid bulky fabrics like sweaters and complicated designs, as they might not present well for a larger audience.

Wear your POWER COLOR! Your energy will be at its best, and others will respond to your energy even if they are not interested in your words. You want to attract their attention and keep it throughout the presentation. Wear neutrals, rich jewel tones or brights.

Avoid all black, as it makes you invisible. You won’t stand out because (as you will see) that is what most of the audience is wearing. Strong contrast is better than going too subtle, but limit yourself to two or three colors to avoid looking busy. Try splashes of bold prints that are easily recognizable, such as leopard, strips or polka dots. We don’t want anyone spending time trying to figure out if it’s a panda or a tiger on your tie or scarf!

Wear flattering, comfortable shoes so you can easily navigate on stage and any stairs. Yes, a shoe can be both flattering and comfortable! Remember, you are commanding the room and are the authority, so a longer and leaner look communicates just that. Ladies, 2-inch to 3-inch heels are good. Please avoid stilettos, as they are never the right choice for professional meetings, and we don’t want the audience distracted from your message watching you teeter on the stage. On the other hand, avoid clunky heavy shoes – this applies to both men and women. Men, avoid wearing the weekend Docker shoes with the thick sole. Go for a sleeker dress shoe in leather.

THE IMPORTANCE OF TAILORING

by Traci McBride

Regardless of shape or size, we need to have a good tailor on speed dial. When purchasing new suits or separates off the rack, keeping an eye toward the details of the fit is key. I recommend expecting to tailor to some degree. Women tend to need the same areas tailored on most everything.

clothes-that-actually-fit-you

Example: I have a client that wears a size 14. In certain brands a 14 is a perfect fit in her length, thigh, seat, and hips — but the waist is 99 percent of the time an inch or two too big. She knows that most of the time she will spend another $15 on that to tweak every pair of pants. She has now calculated that into her clothing budget.

Example: I have a petite client that is on the shorter side of petites. She is 4 feet 11 inches, so even when shopping in the Petite department we will need to tailor a majority of her purchases, usually the length in skirts and dresses. If we love a top or blouse that is not available in Petites, we weigh how much joy the item gives her, as well as the flexibility of the garment to build into multiple outfits, since shortening the blouses is mandatory. We also need to evaluate how much detail is involved in the shortening — pleats, buttons, patterns, lining, etc. — as that will determine the cost of tailoring. More detail equals more cost equals the investment.

Example: Another client is a petite with a short waist and large bust and narrow shoulders. When she fits the largest part of her body (bust) in tops, blouses, and jackets, she has to tailor the sleeve and the waist most of the time. Many times to fit the bust, the shoulder seam sits off her shoulder. If left unattended, this will look sloppy and ill fitted. So we need to address the cost of tailoring if she loves the item and will get enough cost per wear value out if it. Reworking a shoulder can be expensive depending on fabric, lining, pads, and detail. We have found that this year’s abundance of ponte knit blazers has been a blessing for her particular fit issues, and we have invested in a few of those in her power colors. Perfect for pulling a professional look together!

tailoring1
Men have a long history of tailoring their suits, and many stores provide an on-staff tailor for exactly this purpose. Men also have narrow shoulders, wide shoulders, short waists, thick or thin legs, etc., and they have always viewed the tailoring investment as part of the over all cost. Typically they spend much more on one suit but wear it on a weekly basis.

Women tend to have more clothes — mostly as separates — so women sometimes think they can just roll back the sleeve or roll the waist if those areas are too long. I hope you can see the value in paying attention to the details for the details speak volumes about you.

Since I spend an abundance of my time in closets all over Northeast Ohio, I many times find suits or dresses that have been abandoned due to some unflattering detail or fit issues. I always give my advice as to whether or not it is worth the investment of tailoring it or taking the money to purchase something else.

COST PER WEAR NOT PRICE IS THE BEST FOCUS

by Traci McBride

We spend our lives investing — investing in a belief system; investing in relationships, from romantic to partnerships, and our children; and investing in life experiences. Although those investments are not financial, they are time investments — a commodity nonetheless.

mcbride0614-1

Throughout our lives we are also investing in our skills, education, training, and knowledge, expecting a return on investment. When we take a course to learn a new skill, such as a new language, we expect it to help us communicate, perhaps while traveling in that country or to receive a promotion at work or to build our resume and make us more desirable for other opportunities. Obviously if you get that much out of learning a new language, it pays off in so many ways. Likewise, when you invest in professional support, such as a CPA, Realtor, business consultant or health coach, you have a expectations of having benefits to save money, choose the right area to live in, make more money, and improve your health.

If you invested in college (or if you parents did), you did so to become a well-rounded individual in order to make a difference in the world and earn a living for your entire life. When we invest our time, energy or money in anything, we expect something in return. Even with the simple act of purchasing a ticket to the movies, we expect to be entertained for our investment.

We invest in grooming (nails, hair, skin etc.) to look our best and feel good. Americans invest billions of dollars in clothing. Yet most do not have a plan for the return on investment (ROI) and hardly even think about it. We randomly purchase whatever is on the mannequin at the local mall – not giving any thought to how that investment will pay off. We shop the latest trends or stock up from the clearance rack without a plan. I often watch teens and 20-somethings shop, and I can tell no one has ever taught them to be mindful consumers. It is a skill that is not being taught to the up-and-coming consumers.

I would like to suggest being mindful of what you are investing in. Do you want to just purchase a fad item ($25) for the summer (divided by five wears equals cost per wear $5), knowing it will have a quick expiration? That’s fine, but what are you willing to invest and what do you expect to receive for that investment? Are you mesmerized by a leather motorcycle jacket for hundreds of dollars or will a faux version be a more practical investment?

blogger-image-1979803206

Purchasing a men’s suit ($500-plus) is a substantial investment; knowing the right style, fit, and color is important to know up front. What criteria do you use to decide if it’s the right investment? Wear it one time a week for five years equals CPW $1.92, plus dry-cleaning it one time a month equals $180 a year divided by 52 equals $3.46 CPW.

Do you get overwhelmed in your closet not knowing what to keep and what to shed? Do you find you often have buyer’s remorse? Value, not price, is the best focus when shopping. Perhaps investing in a wardrobe stylist is your next step. Want to invest in your personal brand? The key to being successful and reaping the benefits of a clear message that is communicating 365 days a year is to have a professional support you in what you are visually communicating. Learn what you want your visual branding to communicate and know how to do it with the right cuts, colors, fabrics, and a multitude of other details.

mcbride0614-43

Suggested criteria for investing in your closet:

  • Will this create five or more outfits from what I already own?
  • Is it in my power color palette?
  • Realistically how often will I wear this item?
  • Is this item a transitional piece between seasons?
  • What is the quality – have I ever owned this brand and how did it hold up?
  • Does this item need special care? Am I willing to take care of it?
  • Is this a classic I can get years of wear from?
  • How do I feel when I wear it?
  • Do I need to invest more into this item to make it fit properly?

DON’T BUY THE HYPE

by Traci McBride

“Fashion is made to become unfashionable.” – Coco Chanel

Just because retailers sell it and push and tell you “everyone” must have this season’s trend, don’t buy into it. Look at it from an image consultant’s perspective. Having been in women’s closets for a few years now, I tend to see the aftermath of buying into designer and retailer hype.

Yes, I know it’s hard to resist sometimes — it’s cute, you see it everywhere, it’s displayed in clever arrangements at the stores, the style and fashion TV and print media bury you in smart glossy photos and tell you THIS will make you stylish! Heck, even Clinton Kelly (“What Not to Wear”) has admitted that, as an editor for a fashion magazine, he had suggested all women need to wear red lipstick to be sexy! (The lipstick company was a major advertiser.) Now he will tell you that that was a lie — only wear red lipstick if you have a nice mouth and white teeth, as that will be the focus. If red doesn’t enhance your skin and mouth, DON’T wear it!

Figure 1: Much too young to become carbon copies of each other. What sets you apart from the crowd?

A common sight I find in closets is “garment orphans,” which women will admit were attempts to look stylish gone wrong. They end up either not being able to pull a complete outfit together with the item, or each time they put it on they didn’t feel comfortable enough in it to confidently pull it off, so they would take it off, hang it up, and eventually they stopped trying it on all together.

All of this investment in you ends up being wasted. Studies show women have in their closets at any one time $6,000 to $10,000 worth of garments, accessories, shoes, etc, but they only wear $2,000 to $4,000 of it! Now I’m all for investing in yourself — but investing in a wardrobe that flatters your lifestyle, your body shape, your personality, your skin tone and your budget is the key to wise investing and longevity.

The other common situation is playing it safe and ending up with a sea of black garments with pops of color, which often drains your color, imagination, creativity, resulting in your looking older, bored, stuck and exhausted. Many women only own and wear solid blouses, solid pants, solid jackets and solid shoes. Good lord, where is the inspiration? Heck, even bankers deserve to show some personality!

No one I know is born with a style manual — it is a learned talent (thankfully). Let yourself off the hook. You do not have to be great at everything! If I need a landscape design, I hire a designer; when I need to do my taxes, I hire a CPA; when I need an electrician, I hire one! The point is knowing that you need help, a little or a lot. Many times it’s a fresh perspective that is needed: to look at you and your shape and your proportion while listening to your goals and wishes and understanding your day-to-day lifestyle, all the time evaluating with you all the components of your wardrobe. This will establish your Signature Style Recipe and the nuts and bolts of creating it.

So while a Closet Detox is the first step, it certainly isn’t the only step needed. Your personal brand is an ever-changing journey as we elevate, mature, and develop into the next stage of our lives. The best part is that you can begin at any point and any age.
