Express yourself with Goodwill

The clothes you wear are an extension of you- expressing your mood, behavior, attitude, personality, confidence and may even affect the way you interact with people. That’s why choosing the right outfit can make or break the outcome of many of life’s significant events like; will I get the job or will he pop the question? Don’t get me wrong though, I’m not saying your clothing defines you or determines your value, but what I am saying is clothing plays a big part in how you’re perceived. That’s why every morning there is one blaring question we all have to ask ourselves, what will my outfit say about me today? Define your style right here with a few looks that will undoubtedly help you to put your best foot forward.

Carefree, Fun on the edge– express your rebellious inner side breaking all the rules in fluorescent colored pants or shoes and break every trending rule ever created. ‘Do you’ when you mix ripped jeans with a dressy blouse or blazer or rock out in all black everything from head to toe. They won’t be able to take their eyes off of what’s walking towards them. You decide whether that is a good thing or a bad thing? Either way, there simply is “no feeling like being free” to live life by your own fashion rules. 

Classic Conservative – there is absolutely nothing wrong with sticking to a traditional wardrobe if that is your style. Traditional styles represent timeless, sophisticated looks that never go out of style. Therefore, a look defined by clean, structured lines described with solid colors or a minimal pattern never miss. Tap into your inner Olivia Pope, Jackie O or Elizabeth Taylor with a pencil skirt paired with a solid jacket over a striped shirt or blouse with the classic leather heel or flat shoe.

Eclectic Bohemian – here’s where vintage looks merge with current fashion trends to create a personal style. Feel free to inject as much or as little of your personality into this look as there are no right or wrongs found in this category. Pull from a variety of style elements, patterns, textures, and looks from as many sources as you choose and form one look that highlights your true style.

Translation – ‘Do you’ – to put yourself first doing or wearing what’s best for you.
