Kim: A Closet Consultation Come to Life

•• Shopping

Meet my friend Kim (on the right in the photo above).  We’ve been friends for a few years but last month she asked me for help in figuring out how to take her wardrobe up a notch.

I spent a Sunday at her house doing a Closet Consultation by helping her put together some outfits out of things she already owned.

But the best part was yet to come. Not only did she come away from that experience with a bevvy of new looks without spending a dime, she also got some tips on how to put together outfits on her own.

In this outfit she’s following my “rule of three” suggestion.

Wear at least three pieces.  Skirt, top and scarf.  Jeans, top and blazer.  Pants, top and statement necklace.  Mix and match but always have at least three things.

On Wednesday she came to my office for lunch wearing another fabulous outfit.

Here’s she’s keeping the color palate similar (red, off-whites, black & grays) but using the black belt to make her waist stand out.  That’s my other rule.

Use a belt to accentuate your waist, bring attention up from your hips, and show off your figure.

In this case the outfit without the cardigan was also cute but the belt just takes it up a notch and gives it a little bit more polish.  By the way, I’m partial to wider belts as opposed to skinny belts.

Wearing waist-flattering belts and leg-flattering pencil skirts weren’t always Kim’s style.  This is her using my tips, breaking out of her style rut, and showing us her own fabulous Loop Looks creations!

    I’ll spread my wings and I’ll learn how to fly…

    I must say, I have to walk in to my closet and say “What would Erin wear?” Thanks for helping me out! And for featuring me!!!

    I remember how much fun we had when you helped me clear out my closet. I still had clothes from college (early ’90s) and hadn’t shopped in years. Purging my closet was a great starting point, and I’m finally adding a few new pieces. In particular, I’m rediscovering blazers now that Nicolle is no longer a baby (and I’m actually leaving the house).

    Wow Kim… you look great in red. Thanks for the tip about the “rule of 3″ Erin. Will have to keep that in mind.
