Today's Style Tip: Do you have a "signature piece"?

A fashion icon is typically someone who is comfortable with their style and the image they project.

Have a think about the style icons you see in the press. Have you noticed that alot of them have a "signature piece" and wear it again & again. They are known for it. It's their thing.

A signature piece is something you reach for again & again - it's you and you love it and incorporate it into your look constantly.

Typically it is jewellery or accessories, but it can be a hairstyle, particular clothing, even a favourite colour.

Think - 

Anna Wintour's bob
Blair Waldorf's headbands
Carrie Bradshaw's "Carrie" necklace
Elle MacPherson's long wavy locks & stacked high-low bracelets
Ellen De Generes' sneakers
Jennifer Aniston's long hair (& the Aniston hair cut from the early Friends days)
Holly Golightly's pearls
Carolina Herrera's white shirts
Barbara Bush's three strand pearl choker
Michelle Obama's single chunky pearl choker

Get the drift?

Do you have a signature piece?

It may be a favourite colour, a pair of sunglasses, a retro way of dressing (Mad Men?), a bracelet or cuff, a necklace or earrings or a gazillion other items.

The funny thing about signature pieces is that aren't usually found by you - a signature piece is usually something that finds YOU!
