Recently soul songstress Andra Day was on the cover of Essence June cover and she slayed it! In the mag she discusses a few good life lessons. Here are a few take aways of some lessons that we can all take in from Ms. Day.
- Find inspiration in every generation and take from them as you grow. Often times we get so caught in the current fashion trends that we fail to draw inspiration from past eras. We can all embrace what we love and develop our own eclectic style.
- Once you find your signature component stay with it. Whether that is a particular lipstick shade, prints, or an accessory. Everyone has that one consistent component that makes its way into pretty much every outfit. Recognize it and use it to complement your everyday look.
- Stay authentic to yourself and your style. No matter what you wear confidence is key. Always remain true to what you love in spite of the trends, naysayers, haters, etc. Others may not understand but that does not change your greatness.
What about you? What style lessons have you learned along the way?
