As I always say, success leaves clues! If you really want to know what works for your body, life and style right now, you have to be your own fashion police, sifting through the outfits for your greatest hits (and misses!). This is how you train your eye and become your own personal stylist.
However, the only way to truly know what works and what doesn’t is to have that visual record, and that comes from taking a daily picture. Because I practice what I preach, I took a daily picture of my outfits in 2023, and was able to look back at them and pull some of my faves for this video. And then I did something that I call Setting The Bar.
Setting The Bar means that you let your past best looks inform your future best looks. So for example, when you find a smart casual look that you just love and that checks all of your boxes, you use that as the yardstick for all future smart casual looks. If it’s not as cute as your “Bar” outfit, it doesn’t make the cut.
Here are a few of the outfits that set the bar for me in 2023.
