A Statement piece is the very first thing people notice about your entire outlook,
Be sure to know that it definitely will draw attention so you must be confident in it. It is also important to think about your personality and style when picking statement pieces.
Personally , i currently have one statement piece that makes me feel joyful throughout the day and I receive a lot of compliments when I wear it.
The way you carry and portray your statement piece matters and it is left to you whether or not you want it to be noticed. You can wear a statement piece and act like you do not want people to see it and comment about it. That in itself is not advisable as it will stress you and make you come off as shy.
Let the piece declare who you are.
Drifting away from the norm,
Invest in pieces that are re -wearable and sustainable
Invest in pieces that make you bold and sassy. Pieces that you are at peace wearing. Pieces that gives you joy merely seeing them in your wardrobe. Pieces that you are more than happy to rock every time you choose to wear them. Pieces that you are proud of. Pieces that command respect. Valuable pieces. Be it shoes, accessories, bags, and clothes. Make sure they are pieces you do not have to think twice about whether or not to wear. Every piece in your wardrobe as sectioned for various ccasions should be a go-to anytime.
P.S : “pièces de dèclaration” means “Statement pieces” in french
Having to think about how you would love to dress, accesories you would love to own , shoes you would love to compliment that beautiful dress you really want can be a really sweet thing to do. But then it becomes a concern when it stays stuck in your head and you do not get to actualize what is in your head.
Get out of your head and come and be yourself in real life. You may not have the money to actualize the look but you can write that look down in a journal or tell a fashion illustrator to actualize what you are thinking and later on when you have the money, you can actualize the look.
For me , it is torturous and sometimes I do not rest until i get that look out of my head, either by writing or sketching.
So my advice for you today is to come into reality. You can share the look with a friend, a stylist or a fashion illustrator. Even if you do not get to actualize the look later on, someone else can only if you allow (lol).
This is why it is quite important for Fashion designers to be able to know how to sketch . You necessarily do not need to know how to draw before you learn how to sketch designs. I tell you that some pretty difficult customers will come your way whereby the look they have in their head is nothing you have ever heard or seen before and you have to be able to help them out it in sketching the design out. It will give them the sense of security and assurance. Also ensure you ask how they want it to be exactly so as for nothing to go wrong.
There are sketchpads you can get that has the human figure drawn already in it and all you have to do is dress it ,check out https://instagram.com/sketchbooks.ng?igshid=ikbyu80v4a46, you’re welcome (smiles).
Today I linked my post to fashion designers, the next time might be your turn.
Do well to take care of yourself and ensure to always dress well🤗
