Push Your Style - Rachel Fawkes - San Francisco StylistI had the best outfit creation appointment with a client this weekend! Last month she and I pulled a full-on What Not To Wear, investing in an entirely new wardrobe, which she needed after dropping several sizes. In the dressing room, I pushed her to try new shapes, colors and styles on her new body and she surprised herself by loving many of them. Flash forward to last Saturday, she’s had the chance to live with the pieces and tells me how she recently paired an awesome new skirt with a gorge flowy floral blouse. She says the combo was a bit boxy, but my advice to make sure to define her waist was in her mind and continues, “I needed a belt and didn’t have a perfectly matchy one, so I just grabbed the leopard print and went for it.” So. Proud.

Now, I love a good pop of leopard and, by coincidence, was wearing a leopard belt/plaid shirt combo at the very moment I heard this glorious story, but that’s not the point. The point is, by pushing herself to take a risk, my client looked fab and permanently expanded her style boundaries. This week, channel her as inspiration and push yourself to try something new, fashion or otherwise. You’ll be bolder, and maybe even more stylish, forever for it. Happy Monday, Foxes! xo

      Hi Andria, great to hear from you! Skinny denim is still in style, but my favorite cuts are straight and wide-legs with higher rises. I’m also still into boyfriends with booties. I also really love color– hunter green or a dark red/cranberry are both extremely versatile and chic picks. Happy shopping– let me know if I can help further. rachel@fawkeshunter.com
