there’s a rhyme and reason to looking stylish. today, i’m sharing 5 tips that will keep your wardrobe working 365 days a year. by mixing your proportions, zeroing in on color palettes, and adding the right accessories you can elevate your day-to-day look. it’s important to step out the door armed with confidence each and every day. with the right tools at your disposal, you can do just that. so what are my 5 top style tips? let’s take a look.
long over lean – a loose top looks great popped over tight fitted pants or shorts.
or try the reverse. wearing a looser fit pant? add a tight fitted top to balance the proportions. a half tuck adds a little definition to your shape.
2. Mix Styles
they say opposites attract. and that’s never truer than in the style world. have a glam sequin skirt? add a little edge to it by popping a denim jacket over the top. what about a feminine pencil skirt? try a dark rinse denim shirt. casual jeans? wear a pair of heels to elevate the look. i always refer to this style tip as the yin and yang.
pick a color, any color for a sleek look. when in doubt go monochromatic for an easy modern look.
if i’ve said it once i’ve said it a thousand times (gosh, do i sound like my mother…). an easy way to update your closet is with accessories. add a scarf, a fun necklace, brooch, jazzy shoes/boots, or the perfect handbag to instantly elevate your look. it’s the easiest way to add your personality into the mix.
5. Style Uniform
find your go-to style uniform that looks good on you and you feel great in. mine is the 4B’s – blazer, button-down, blue jeans and ballet flats. this is comfort food in an outfit.

Beth, I am ADDICTED to your channel! I am almost 54 and have in the last few years, just lost a good bit of weight and LOVE where I am in this season! I have found my love of fashion again, and I think you strike the BEST between classy/trendy. I want to hang out with you! I love clothes and shoes again (which is a MIRACLE…I wear size 10, and in the past, it was SO hard to find cool shoes, so I beat myself into submission on a BARE amount of shoes. Oh, no more. Just am high off a Target ‘buy one, get one 1/2 off’ and I am FEELING GOOD. I truly love you and love the way you do all that you do. God bless, lady!
hi lisa! thanks so much for stopping by. so happy to hear that you are enjoying this stage of your life. aging is fun isn’t it?! target is a great place to score some cool shoes. their designers are always on point!
PS…how do you feel about A LOT of clothes? Do you pare down often?
personally, i focus on a wardrobe that works hard for me. but i clean my closet twice a year to keep it lean and mean.
Excellent tips! Super helpful. Thank you! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/1954813084672da50bd08c61d98567f49ae2f720cb5f61f1926ce2cbd34a52cb.jpg
