Style rejuvenation is not just about updating your wardrobe. It is much more about understanding what works well for you and what doesn’t. Part of this is working with – rather than against – your body shape. ¬†As any handwriting expert will tell you, your signature is unique to you. Your style signature can also be unique. Style is about how you put your outfits together. You do not need wardrobes full of clothes, most of which you will never wear.
