Updating your Look with Michelle Roofthooft

If you are out there, it’s worth spending some time on your look. Not only will you look good, you’ll feel good. You want to be the best you in our very visible society.

When it comes to your wardrobe, weed out what doesn’t fit and things that are in ‘iffy’ shape. If you’re not sure, get a candid friend to help you make an honest inventory. In general, you want to wear thing that are more fitted vs loose, but you need to be comfortable. Don’t be afraid to stretch yourself and try something new.

What are the basics? Organizing is key. Start by categorizing by color and see what’s missing. You should have a really good pair of jeans, a great black top, a dynamite dress…. A few nice things are better than cheaper, trendy looks.

Accessorizing can change a look without much expense. Look for dangly earrings and fun necklaces, and great shoes are weight neutral.

Most stores have experts. I’m always afraid to ask, but they know what works. And if you get it home and it’s not working for you, don’t wear it and then return it!
