Whether she does it for excitement or to feed her senses, every woman is entitled to unmask her style. It can be distinct and complex, just like her. Perhaps, that’s a clear-cut case of “like attracts like.”
Style is a language. Torn jeans or nude pumps or peplums say something. Every piece spills certain hints of what lies beneath. It’s not worn to impress. And it should not really be that way. How about some instances when a woman just wants to tell the world of her strength or vulnerability? Through smokey eyes or an all pink OOTD, maybe? Style is supposed to mirror the beauty that’s already living in her- “beauty that is worth pursuing, worth fighting for.. beauty that can be seen; beauty that can be felt; beauty that affects others; a beauty all our own to unveil.”
So, don’t judge a woman for the hours of planning and scrutinizing an ensemble. Don’t judge especially if it’s with the right motives and limits. Just imagine an artist’s conception of a masterpiece. It’s no-nonsense!

If you’ve already found your style, stick to it. Be the best that you can be and make sure to exude a positive vibe in this (at times) despondent world.
Cheers to every woman in style!
