Create a Look Book
Many clothing retailers publish (either in print or online) "look books." These clothing catalogues-turned-fashion magazines feature entire outfits, often sorted by occasion, such as casual, career or special event. It makes it easier for shoppers to put together polished looks, rather than hunting and pecking through separates to create a (hopefully) cohesive look.
Although you can use a look book as an aid when shopping a specific retailer, you could create your own look book, too. Clip favorite outfits, separates, accessories and footwear from magazines and catalogues, and assemble them all in one place. Be sure to select your favorite items without overthinking the process. While your favorites may seem disparate choices, be patient. Once you've completed your own personal look book, you'll discover your selections follow common threads and are now easily identifiable components of your signature style.
