Often women with a very cohesive style have very strong signature elements to their style. The same can apply to the women who maintains a smaller more minimal closet too.  

If I were to break down my own signature elements I might suggest red lipstick, white blonde hair, black, drape and layers.  These are all core elements of my own style and appear in almost all my outfits.  These elements might appear in varying amounts but they are constants in 'my look'.

So when I shop I naturally gravitate to items that reflect those signature elements.  It helps me to assess the value (to me) of a piece of clothing before it enters my closet.  

Recently I bought a pair of Harem Pants by Eileen Fisher.  I had been wanting these for probably two years, and with the style, I believe, now discontinued, I was able to snap up a pair at a price that didn't do too much damage to my budget.

These are a perfect example of adding an item to my own closet that reflects my signature elements.  They are a an interesting design, are a gorgeous streamlined black, the fabric has a beautiful drape and they work well both minimally styled or styled with layers. They have only been mine for about a month and I have lost count of how many times I have worn them.

Have you identified your own signature elements?  Are there items of clothing that you consider your signature pieces that you love to wear over and over?

Hope you have a great week.
