Episode 105. "Getting dressed is a conversation with ourselves before it's a conversation with anybody else."
~Nicole Otchy, personal stylist, branding consultant, podcaster
What’s your wardrobe style?
That question can short circuit the finely-tuned minds of otherwise competent people. Throw in a pandemic with its whiplash-inducing pivot to online all the time meetings or events and you’ve got a recipe for closet calamity.
Performed without context, all the recent Kondo-izing or late-night online buying binges can add up to a closetful of clothes but no strategy for creating outfits that project a sense of the person behind the brand.
Enter Nicole Otchy, personal stylist, personal branding consultant, and host of The Self Styled Podcast, a show helping listeners unlock their personal style. Yes, before you say anything, it’s Nicole’s firm belief that everyone has style.
Things get complicated, however, when confidence gets hijacked by chatter. Conversations around how women “should” dress are mired in all sorts of “rules” - for our body type, our age, our career path or industry.
Everything’s changed, seemingly overnight, and dressing can be an act of self-care right now. As the world shakes off its layers of pandemic pajamas, however, greater emphasis will be placed on virtual professional events and entirely revamped careers.
Nicole also foresees drastic shifts in shopping habits and as well as a greater emphasis on societal wellbeing. In other words, if you haven’t given style much thought, now might be a great time to revisit how you intend to style yourself and your brand for the future.
