If you had asked me 10 years ago if I’d ever be posting my “outfit of the day” or Old Navy try ons online, I would have laughed myself silly.
Back then, putting together my own clothes was such a frustration. I was incredibly insecure with my after-3-babies-sized body, and choosing clothes stressed me out.
Everything changed dramatically when I discovered Alison from Get Your Pretty On and her Capsule Wardrobe Style Challenge.
Fall 2019 Style Challenge Open Now + A Giveaway for You!
The first Style Challenge I took was in Fall. I know it sounds dramatic, but it really did change my life!
What is the Fall 2019 Style Challenge?
Alison’s Fall Capsule Wardrobe Style Challenge provides participants with a list of clothing items that can be combined to create 33 different outfits. It includes 19 closet staple pieces that can be used to create a fresh, new look for the season!It shows how a mix of patterns, prints, and accessories can bring new life to ordinary outfits.
For just $39, participants receive:
- a shopping list of versatile, classic, and on trend fashion items.
- a calendar of 33 different outfit ideas using those items.
- a “dress it up” and “dress it down” option for each outfit of the day
- PLUS! Access to the Fall Style Challenge 2018 wardrobe – which doubles your outfit ideas!
Other style challenges “perks” include:
- Access to a personal Facebook page of other style challenge participants
- Color palette resource
- Weekly giveaways
Registration begins on September 6, 2019 and the first outfit styled will be September 26th. That gives you lots of time to clean out your closet and shop for what you need!
How did the Style Challenge help me?
When I received my first style challenge shopping list, I studied it like my life depended on it. I saw what were considered “classic” pieces that wouldn’t go out of style from year to year. That gave me confidence as I went shopping for particular items that I was investing in something I could use, wear, and love for a long time.
I also learned creative ways to mix and match outfits so that a few pieces could create completely different looks! Accessories became a fun thing that I started to look for – realizing they could change the feel and style of an outfit.
(I bought that scarf while taking my first style challenge with Alison years ago…and I still wear it every year!)
I shopped very slowly to build up my classic wardrobe staples – using the Style Challenge as my template. Observing how other people interpreted classic items (like jeans, for instance) helped me choose items that fit my frame and lifestyle the best.
Most of all, though, it boosted my self confidence in the fashion department. It provided me with valuable tools so that I could choose and wear outfits with confidence.
Would you like to take a Fall Style Challenge?
You do? That’s great! I highly recommend it for anyone needing and desiring some assistance in the personal styling department. Honestly, it was the best investment I ever made for my own style…
