Now we turn to your current closet. Think of outfits you’ve worn in the past. Is there any one item that rakes in the compliments whenever you wear it? It could be a dress that molds perfectly to your shape, or a pair of killer heels that give you a certain sway as you enter a room. Chances are, you feel at your most confident and comfortable when you wear them. Don’t underestimate the power of feel-good clothing - they’re your unknown secret style weapon!
