One fun way to play around with ideas about your personal style is to imagine what it would be if money (and space) were no object.
And while Fantasy Clothes are often a fantasy for a reason, thinking about them can be more than an enjoyable daydream with a cup of coffee.
So start by noticing. What do you notice when you look at clothes, whether they’re the clothes you see on other women or in the store or online?
As you look through your Fantasy Closet, here are some questions to ask yourself about what’s “hanging” inside.
- Do your selections surprise you?
- Are they the opposite of what you’re wearing now?
- When you imagine dressing that way, is the idea exciting? Scary? Both?
- What are some characteristics these clothes have in common?
- Is it a color, a shape, a designer, a cut or even a feeling?
You may never be able to fill your real closet with your Fantasy Clothes, but the things you learn about what you like when you answer these questions will help guide your choices the next time you look for something new to buy, or put an outfit together.
In my Fantasy Closet: lots of classic / chic and touch of modern. Black, red, bolds and patterns (OK, this is already in my real closet!). Marni, Armani, Chanel, Calvin Klein, Michael Kors. Impeccable cuts. Fluid fabrics. And because this is a fantasy, I could wear high heels without hurting my feet!
