functional fashion

jenny greenstein

It’s simply not enough to be fashionable anymore, being functional is essential too. And while most of us wake up with a mission to look good, we have the day (and life!) to contend to, and our clothes need to fit into that. Part of the Your Soul Style process is taking the time to understand the intricacies of my clients personality, but also their day to day lifestyle to best organize a closet, and wardrobe in a way that makes sense. Getting dressed shouldn’t be stressful, or a chore, or something you wake up dreading daily. Getting dressed should help you enter the day strong, feeling empowered for what’s to come and demonstrates who you are from the inside out. What you wear should also be comfortable in both a stylistic way, and literally too.

How would you answer the following questions when it comes to evaluating your wardrobe:

  • When is the last time I wore this?
  • How do I feel when I wear this?
  • Does this item really convey my personal style?
  • Does this item make me feel happy, empowered, strong, confident?
  • Does this item really fit anymore or am I saving it for when I lose/gain weight?
  • What motivated me to buy this? Was it a trend? Did I see it on my friend? A mannequin in a boutique? A celebrity?

These are only some of the questions discussed when performing a Closet Detox with my clients. We evaluate every single item, detoxing it all down to ensure what’s left is authentically representative of you, while providing innovative ways to style what’s left, and offering a seasonal shopping list to start building from the ground up which we can go out and obtain together.

Whether you’re a working woman (or mama) on the go, a stay at home mom, or wearing business clothes on the job, but then want to head to a date night after hours feeling super sexy, we can make it happen. You deserve it!

Spring is just 3 days away, and I can’t wait to get to know you, help you detox, cleanse and reboot for the season (and life) ahead.

cool & cool

mango

As far as I’m concerned, Summer is basically here which means lightweight dresses and sandals are creeping their way up to the front of my closet.  I stumbled upon this Mango dress and although it was a departure from my usual floor length maxi silhouette, I thought it would be perfect for days when you need a light dress that’ll keep you cool and well – cool.  To toughen it up and personalize, I added a black moto jacket for a pop of edge.  But for warmer days, I’ll switch it out for denim.  I also kept the shoes nude to elongate my (very pale!) legs, since sometimes black stops the eye, causing legs to appear shorter.  This dress is sure to have mileage straight into September (I’ve already worn it 3x) and the price point cannot be beat at $79.99!  Mango has tons of great styles if this one isn’t for you, all at affordable prices so shop to it!

SHOP IT:  dress: Mango (similar or similar), jacket: Sfera (similar), shoes: cole haan (similar or similar), sunnies: Ray Ban, bag: Chloe, bracelets (from top to bottom): J.crew (similar), Marisa Haskell, vintage, vintage, lip: Bite (pomegranate)
