Perhaps you think that musings on clothes are best left to fashion magazines. But the tenets of good style can also serve as excellent rules for living a good life. Consider the following wisdoms from fashion’s top gurus. You may be surprised at universality of their messages!

“Life’s too short to wear boring clothes.”   – Carly Cushnie and Michelle Ochs
Life should be like getting dressed. Have a little fun every once in awhile. Embrace color and don’t be afraid to experiment. 

“Fashion is like eating. You shouldn’t stick with the same menu.”  – Kenzo Takada
While it is good to know what we like and to honor who we are, be sure to try new things and branch out.

“You can have anything you want if you dress for it.”  – Edith Head
Sometimes the first step to getting what you want means acting (and dressing!) like you’re already on your way.

“Conformity is the only real fashion crime.” – Simon Doonan
When it comes to fashion, and life in general, it can be tempting to follow the crowd. Rather than conform to the latest trends, stay true to your style.  

“Fashion is not necessarily about labels, it’s not about brands. It’s about something that comes from within you.” – Ralph Lauren
What makes someone special is their authenticity, individuality, and character. When it comes to life, and your wardrobe, don’t feel like you have to wear a costume. Show off the real you and what comes from within.  

We all have to get dressed in the morning. The next time you’re scoping your closet, consider your own attitude on style and clothing.
