As a stylist, I’m known for not really having my own signature style. It’s more about my clients having their own individual vibe. I pride myself on that.
Except, of course, there is one look that is distinctly me and a sort of rite of passage at my studio….. And that’s, a “Le Smoking.” Literally, it is my styling goal to eventually get every client I work with in one.
Because there’s just something so empowering, and so sexy about the look. It’s a knowing. You see that woman and you know. Because she does. And by the way, you might not even know, and that sadly is a miss for you but also okay, because the knowing and the not knowing are good for the rest of us.
It’s throwing the entire patriarchal structure of what a woman needs to look like on its head by taking the ultimate male uniform and making it ours.
The trick is, you’ve got to own it. You’ve got to be ready to have all the energy of this moment. You have to be ok being the best dressed, envied, and admired. It’s like, BDE or whatever people say.
You just have to wear it with confidence. And you will, because once you slip on that jacket and straighten your bow tie… well, you’re already there.
