Style Statement - dedicated enlightenment  

Susan’s best and bravest self is fun and full of positive energy. She’s all about serving others, earning their trust through kindness and service. She’s a smart problem-solver. She enjoys being creative and challenging and stimulating her intellect. Susan’s style should be unfussy and comfortable, free from trend and complicated details- this will fuel her confidence and comfort and appear easy and inviting to those around her. Injections of color and interesting details (jewelry, print, etc) will show her fun side and sense of humor.

style inspiration

Outfit 1 A cropped sweater alludes to her waistline but doesn’t cling to her torso, and the wide neckline adds width to her shoulders, balancing her midsection! The A-line skirt has a balancing effect as well, and its shorter length compliments her petite frame. Neutral slides add height and length to her legs, while a long pendant necklace accentuates the vertical, not horizontal. The overall breeziness and ease of the outfit suits Susan’s fun, happy energy. Outfit 2 The hem detail, cap sleeves and wide neckline of this dress add volume at the shoulders and legs, which help balance Susan’s midsection. Nude, pointed-toe flats add length to her petite frame, and a statement necklace brings the eye up. Her fun energy is reflected in the pop color of the necklace, flouncy hem of the dress, and studded bow of the shoe. Outfit 3 The center placket detail of the shirt helps elongate her shorter torso, as does the parallel lines created by the long cardigan. The fun polka-dot pants add interest (and volume) to her lower half, as does the hem of the cardigan ending at her mid-thigh. The blue loafers complete the lengthening monochromatic look, and add fun energy with the velvet texture.
