Learn How To Dress Better

How To Dress Better In Minutes

Ever wish you knew how to dress better instead of having another day of putting on a plain top, looking into the mirror, and thinking-feeling frumpy and really bored with your outfit?

The solution is yours by simply using accessories to turn a basic and somewhat boring outfit into a pulled-together ready-to-be-seen one.

Start with your eyes by using your ears.

Huh? What? Ok, hear me out.

Your eyes are a built-in accessory, but you need to bring them out with what you wear.
One of the best and easiest ways to do so, other than wearing tops in your best colors, is by wearing earrings that either match the color of your eyes or are in your best colors.

The first thing I do for every virtual and in-person client is to show her the best colors to wear plus, and this is very important, which to avoid. The wrong colors can make you look sick and older. The right colors take years off and give you a healthy glow, so be sure to add them to your accessories as well as your clothes.

A Gorgeous Splurge

I love these earrings by Emily Kuvin, a jewelry designer I ‘met’ on the social media platform Clubhouse. Her pieces are a splurge, but also a great example of wearing color to flatter your facial features to make a simple outfit a wow outfit.
I hope to treat myself to this pair of earrings one day.

 

 

The very affordable Kate Spade earrings, see below, are available in a very pretty blue and a great way to bring out your eyes and dress up a blah outfit. Do not get the black ones as they won’t be as impactful as those in blues or greens.

Think of necklaces and/or scarves in the same way. Ask yourself if the colors compliment your eyes, skin tone, etc. When they do, any of your same ole outfits will instantly look better and frumpy will not be the first thing you see in the mirror.

And then she said:

“For the first time in my whole life, I have clothes that go with each other and outfits to wear everywhere. And my closet is less than half of what it has ever been.”

 

 

What's Wrong With This Outfit?

What’s Wrong With This Outfit?

So, what’s wrong with this outfit?

What's Wrong With This Outfit?

What’s Wrong With This Outfit?

I asked that question to my Stop Stressing About Dressing private group on FaceBook, and although most were not a fan of this titled “Power Outfit”, nobody was able to point out why it isn’t flattering on this model.

Here’s why this outfit is NOT right for her and likely you:

  1. Her arms are very long, and these sleeves are way too short for her which makes her look like the jacket is too small for her.
  2. She needs to wear a top under this jacket or wear a jacket that buttons up higher as the open neckline is way out of proportion for her shape and height.
  3. Lose the socks!! Why oh why did the stylist put white socks on her??? They visually chop up her legs and make them look too thin. Yes, legs can look too thin.
  4. The shoes without socks are barely ok, but sandals would have been so much better.
  5. Large pockets on the hips rarely flatter anyone…even a thin model.
  6. Either shorter shorts, ankle, or full-length pants would be much more flattering for her proportions.
  7. This very dull color diminishes her beautiful coloring and features.

The details that make an outfit or piece of clothing work, or not, for each woman vary greatly. Here is a tall, thin, and beautiful woman in an outfit that makes her look like she’s wearing somebody else’s ill-fitting clothes and takes away from her beauty.
Proof, that thin is NEVER the reason why clothes don’t look as great on you as you think they would.

Learning which clothes look good on YOU is how to
go from feeling insecure to feeling and looking confident.

Knowing what colors, cut, styling details, and fit work for YOU is how to not buy or wear clothes that make you feel unattractive, frumpy, and unprofessional.

For those of you who are tired of being in the “I don’t know what looks good on me” club, grab one of the few spots available in my
Know What To Wear Workshop.

Please understand that it’s only for the woman who wants to stop getting stressed about what to wear and who likes to save money.

“If you have the opportunity to work with Scarlett – take it! I attended a workshop she gave today and came away with so many tips to improve my wardrobe & shopping habits.
Brava!” – Carolyn Browning

“Fantastic! A small group of women shared learning, experiences, many questions, and laughs as we learned about our colors, ‘pulling things together, and loads of style tips. I left energized and ready to make some changes, heading directly into my closet.  I Highly, highly recommend if you have the opportunity to work with Scarlett in a group or individual setting you should do it.” – Teresa Solecki

 

 

 

How To Clean Out Your Closet Fast

Why You Have Nothing To Wear

 

Why You Have Nothing To Wear

Full Closet. Nothing To Wear.

Recently a new client asked to work with me because she was fed up with having lots of clothes, yet nothing she loved to wear.

Every time she was getting dressed for either an in-person or remote meeting she would wear the same one or two outfits that she had in a few different colors, but always felt frumpy.

And she couldn’t understand why the clothes she had bought seemed great when she bought them, and not so great when she tried to make an outfit with them.

She hysterically shared that her recent way of accessorizing an outfit was to put a bra on. LOL

Then she confessed that things got worse when she let her 18-year-old daughter give her styling advice. 😳

Hence, her “I can’t take it anymore” ringy -dingy to my cell.

I virtually took a look at her clothes and a few selfies so I could see what was going wrong and how to make it right. And it worked.

I told her, here’s why you have nothing to wear…

Turns out she was buying clothes just because they fit, instead of loving how she looked in them and following the advice of a teenager might have worked if she was 18, but not at over 45.

She had lots of pieces, but very few that could be mix and matched to create lots of new outfits.

During her Zoom with me, I was able to show her which of her clothes were perfect for her and which to get out of her closet. And because she chose my Premium Virtual Styling service, I showed her the clothes and accessories to try and buy because I knew she’d look amazing wearing them.

Yesterday she emailed me a big thank you. She loves all the compliments she’s now getting when on camera, and finally her insecurities are gone. She also stopped buying clothes she didn’t even like to wear.

PS Now she’s giving her daughter styling advice and she’s listening!!  Respect!

ANNOUNCEMENT –  My Virtual Personal Styling fees are increasing on September 14, 2020. When you purchase a virtual styling service prior to 9/14/20, we’ll work together when you’re ready and you get to save money that you can use towards some new clothes.

Push Your Sleeves Up

How To Push Your Sleeves Up!

Push Your Sleeves Up

For all the women who have worked with me and/or attended my presentations, you know how much I say… “don’t forget to push your sleeves up.”

Why?

Because an outfit looks much, much better when you push your sleeves up.

Before I was known as the stylist who helps women stop stressing about dressing, I wanted to be known as the Push Your Sleeves Up Stylist…that’s how much I love the look of sleeves pushed up.

But sleeves don’t always cooperate, so check out this sleeve saving gadget.

It’s called CuffedUp, and it has me pumped up!

No more sleeves falling down, getting in your food or making short arms look even shorter.

AND you can use it on pants hem too!!!

Men will love CuffedUp too.

When your sleeves are pushed up, your outfit will look considerably more stylish and polished.

Plus it makes you look thinner and taller.

Don’t believe me? Just go in front of a mirror and push one sleeve up and you’ll
see exactly what I mean.

The video below shows how the CuffedUp works.

Use code crew10 for an extra 10% off.

 

If you think pushing your sleeves up is a great tip,
you’re going to love the ones you’ll get in

How many more years will you waste not knowing what to wear?

Mary, Not Her Real Name, Wasn’t Happy

Mary passed the mirror in her hallway and was startled when she caught a glimpse of her reflection…OMG.

What happened to her body?
How did her middle get so much bigger?
When did her body parts shift?
Why do her clothes no longer fit the way they used to?
Where are the clothes she needs to hide her lumps and bumps?
Why can’t she find anything in the stores that look good on her?

She wondered if she should just take that mirror down, but instead decided to immediately go on a diet and lose those pounds that sneaked up on her when she wasn’t looking. Problem solved?

Then 3, 4, 5…20  years later she now weighed more and had developed a great fondness for leggings and an all-black wardrobe.

The trouble was, that really didn’t work for when she had to attend a networking event, accept invitations to events, speak, or meet a potential client.

Panic would set at the moment she needed to leave her home office, and she often found herself turning down invitations that required her to get out from behind the computer.

dress without stress

Speaking of her computer, she now had developed a very unhealthy relationship with it and was finding it hard to step away from. Although unlike herself, it never judged how she was dressed, looked and felt.

Mary had some thinking to do.

She has her own business and started to realize that how she looked and felt about her very own bottom, was hurting her bottom line, and taking a serious toll on her dwindling self-confidence.

She had no idea how to dress her body or what to wear to make her look as successful and capable as she had been working so hard to be. Finally and with great relief, Mary decided she was ready to accept the body she has and finally get the help she needs to find out how to dress it.

She was ready to wear clothes with zippers and buttons, get out of the house, reduce her I’ll just stay in my legging days, and look at her reflection with confidence and a smile.

UPDATE: She turned quite a few heads the next time she went out and all her lumps and bumps were quite stylishly hidden, all because she found out how to Dress Without Stress. 

Now It’s YOUR Turn !!!

Are you ready to get out of your leggings, wear some color, look and feel stylish, and learn what will look good on you?

Enroll in Dress Without Stress, to get the tools you need to be able to choose an outfit without getting frustrated or stressed out and get my personalized feedback. You won’t have to do this alone.

and then You’ll also be saying…

“Oh, my goodness. That was fun. I feel like I just lost 20 pounds.It’s like I was given permission to let go of past things that just didn’t work. Past ideas and even goals that literally just don’t fit me anymore. Thank you so much for your help. So much I never knew or even thought about!!!”  Lisa Tancredi

“I discovered Scarlett through a mutual friend whose ensemble was stunning. I had to ask “who” she was wearing. She passed me Scarlett’s name, and what I got from our engagement was so much more than a few beautiful dress recommendations. She empowered me with the knowledge of the right colors and silhouettes for my coloring and shape. I’ve received piles of compliments on the items we both chose using her guidance. She gave me a tool I will have for the rest of my life. Working with Scarlett is an investment not only in your closet but your confidence as well!” Lea Pica

“Thanks to your course I learned how to NOT draw the wrong attention to my backside, and for teaching me soooo much that I never knew about dressing.” Dr. Pamela Hoffman
