Have you ever looked back at a picture and thought: OMG, I can't believe I wore that?
Having a little restraint in your wardrobe can prevent those future embarrassing moments 10-20 years down the road. Elegance doesn't always have to be avant-garde and extremely artistic. Remember, elegance existed long before any of us, and will continue after we are gone – in essence, it has stood the test of time. So why not blend a little...dare I say...conservatism into your wardrobe. You don't have to wholeheartedly embrace it, but use it to tone-down the flamboyance of some new fashions that you find appealing.
A balanced wardrobe can help you to uniquely tailor your wardrobe to suit your personality, while preventing those uh-oh moments of the future. Blending tradition with trend allows those fashionable people to get the extra mile out of their wardrobe. Not only can you enhance the longevity of your clothing, but having an air of conservatism to blend with your highly fashionable self can yield that power of leverage that you need to make your personal style radiate sophistication, confidence, and restraint.
Stay beautiful, stay confident, stay YOU.
