Have you ever wondered why some clothing styles complement you while others sabotage your appearance? Have you ever tried on the outfit on the mannequin that you loved, only to find that it didn’t love you back? This has happened to all of us for a number of different reasons, so you are not alone.
Our genetics determine our body's shapes, proportions and height, and these details determine the style and cut of clothing that suit us best. Accepting and knowing our body type contributes to higher self-esteem.
I will teach you how to use the unique features of your body to make style decisions that will create a great look. Details such as line, proportion, style, fit and fabric types will be considered, as well as your personality style and natural look. These details will be incorporated into your style equation, as well as your hairstyle and facial details.
As I work with you, a customized Style Guide will be put together. Since your bone structure, height and body proportions are genetic and will not change, this book will serve as a reference forever. Knowing the best style of pants, skirt length, jacket details and the size and shape of your accessories will empower you to make the right decisions with ease and confidence.
I had a huge amount of black clothes in my wardrobe and never realized how washed out they made me look until I stopped wearing them. I also thought I could wear more or less any colour, and I didn’t give much thought to emphasizing what looked BEST. Lynda really taught me to be more discriminating, choosing colours that made me come alive.
Madison had a wonderful time with you in your Manners Matter course. It was nice to see her so enthusiastic to teach me some new things. I noticed her posture was better that first day :) She was proud to teach her younger brother as well. We will definitely like to take that class again.
Lynda's professional etiquette seminar is a must for any business wishing to ensure that its representatives know how to behave appropriately in the corporate world. My front line employees usually make the first impression of my firm on potential clients and professional colleagues; therefore I consider it essential that they are polished and confident in every situation. Lynda presents this difficult topic in an easy and approachable way, making people feel comfortable to ask questions without awkwardness. This seminar brings real practical results. Now I feel confident that my employees have the skills they need to represent my firm in the most professional way possible. In addition, my staff now feel much more comfortable in both business and social situations.
Even after having spent only a few hours with you, I still keep your advice in mind when dressing for work or shopping for new clothes. It helps a lot in simplifying the process for me and making it more enjoyable (or at least much less painful) than it otherwise would be. As a teacher, it's especially important for me to maintain an image of professionalism and respect and I've found that the simple tips you've given me allow me to achieve this easily and inexpensively.
When Lynda went through my wardrobe with me, her eye for what worked and what didn't work helped me tremendously. What remained became the 'bones' of my wardrobe and I felt as if a huge depressing burden had been lifted from my shoulders. It's like losing weight. It is so much easier now to make smarter fashion decisions. Now I get compliments on what I'm wearing.
Our organization, like many others, faced a challenge with our younger staff: how to define for them what proper business attire means in today's workplace. We turned to Lynda Jean and are delighted we did so. Lynda, through a "Lunch 'N Learn" session, brought down to earth, practical advice to our staff in a way that was informative without being condescending or crossing any human resources boundaries. I am pleased to be able to say that we had very positive feedback from our staff on Lynda's presentation and, equally importantly, we have noticed a definite improvement in our staff's attire.
