Dressing my Frame: A Tool of the 2022 Winter Closet Outfit Planner

I recently purchased my third Closet Outfit Planner from Style by Color, and I love this one most of all! My growing admiration isn’t so much because this planner is better than the others – though they have added some really neat features this season. I love it because I’ve really taken the time to review the tips and put them into practice. I believe the pictures I am sharing today prove Shari Braendel and her team know their subject matter well. Before I explain the photos, however, let me share a few more reasons why I love the planner.

  • Plaid! I can say with confidence that without the Closet Outfit Planner, plaid pants would not have entered my closet. With some expert nudging by Shari, though, I took the plunge and purchased a pair. I love them. Not only do they add some flair to my outfits, but the multiple colors of the plaid provide so many outfit options.
  • Color! Or, better stated, my colors. Style by Color provides a brief quiz that allows you to discover the clothing colors that best accentuate your hair, skin and eye shades. Again, teal is not a big color in my closet, nor is gray. On the other hand, black is bountiful in my wardrobe. The Color Quiz showed me that gray is a better staple than black, and that teal is a flattering shade for me.
  • And then there’s Shari’s bOd-X Shape System, a tool that helps you not only identify your personal body type, but also guides you in ways to flatter your frame. Which brings me to the next photos. I have worn the outfit in Picture A before, thinking it looked great. But it wasn’t the best for my body. By following Shari’s system, I was able to make a few adjustments and voila! A crisper, more flattering look.

Perhaps you have never had this experience, but I personally admit to spending $50 or more on clothing that sits in my closet because it just doesn’t look or fit right. The Closet Outfit Planner costs well under $50, and helps me “shop my closet” for outfits that really wear well. Grab one for yourself by following this link. And send us some photos of your new outfit discoveries!
