Fashion Dilemma

Fashion Dilemma

By Sydney-sider Women as Entrepreneurs member, Robin Powis Founder of Defining Style Image Consultancy, Personal Branding Specialist

Entrepreneurs attend many events and it is a common fear among women to meet someone with the same outfit at a function! So what can you do if you go to an event and someone else is wearing the same dress? Well…

 Do not

  • Lose your confidence and go home with your tail between your legs
  • Speak negatively about the other person
  • Say to others that you look better in the dress than they do

OPTION 1

No Way Out– You’re at the Event

How do you solve this dilemma ie you’ve no chance of going home to change, or popping out and buying a new dress?

Do

  • On sighting the person walk confidently up to them and congratulate them on their great taste
  • Also comment on how they have adapted it to their own Signature Style eg worn a structured tailored jacket with a floaty feminine dress.

OPTION 2

Soften the Blow – When you buy a Striking Garment from a Chain Store

Do

  • Adapt it to your Signature Style with shoes and bag in contrasting colour, or a statement piece like a geometric necklace
  • If you really know your stuff, clash a stripe or pattern for full fashion impact.

OPTION 3

Avoid this Catastrophe Happening – Source Garments You are Unlikely to See Again

Do

  • Buy overseas eg Hawaii, USA and Asia have great fashion with low price tags compared to Australia
  • Buy classic garments in block colour so you can mix n match them your way
  • Avoid buying garments that have a dominating or striking pattern or feature.
