It would be wonderful and more interesting if you had more visuals such as a picture of you D&G dress or the plat form shoes you mentioned. Your tips are very good but visuals would really add to your presentations.

Lauren darling, I can't begin to afford tailoring. I'm 5'9", 180, long long long torso. So, tip #1 eliminates 80% of my closet. Nothing retail really fits so I do my best, but yeah.

I hate high waist jeans. Please tell me what is good about it. Iam 57 and spunky artist but I love half tuck. Beach waves ripped jeans. But I feel like that style was my High School!!! Also I like L.L. Bean jeans very plain good price. Roll up or not. I hate super tight leggings on older women. If they are curvy the shirt and fabrics I see are cotton don't lay over that butt. Can you show women body type ok not ok. Thanks.

Sorry to say but I couldn’t finish your video because there is a lot of going around your upper part. A slanted neckline blouse does absolutely not go with a necklace. If you have a statement piece you cannot have dangling earrings. And I don’t want to speak about the leather jacket on white trousers. That looks cheap. If you want your audience to pay attention to what you’re saying about being stylish, you yourself should have the sense of it all.

I have lost and gained weight and I always regret tossing clothes. Guess what, if you toss the jeans that don't fit you and you do lose weight, in 3 months you'll have to toss the jeans that don't fit you BECAUSE you lost weight. Then what?! You'll just walk arround naked?!

I have noticed that even though when someone is wearing some colour or styles i dont personally like they still look good if they carry it well ~~

Damn this is a great video, if I would throw everything away in your list, I would have so much space. I thought this would be a fashion no go list but I am happily surprised, this is super helpful advice, thanks again for the great vid Storytime: I like to hoard clothes and have had a lot of clothes and never wore them and since this month, I wear them and I am about it. I actually followed your rule without knowing it. Have clothes that support your future self ♡. Got a new sub

Great video! That last suggestion was very necessary. I've been struggling with where I will be and where I am as in style because I didn't want to make a change that was aging but this video combined with your other vids help bring balance. Thanks for your dedication. It took a while to get used to the lack of examples but you explain so well, I can find examples on my own and mold that image to my personal aesthetic.

Tossing all high-waisted jeans, I only bought them because they're in style, but I can't stand them. Not edgy enough for me.

Hello Lauren, just wanted you to know that watching your videos have helped me tremendously to plan my outfits for work. I just want to say Thank you very much! Hope you continue to make videos, I'm looking good and feeling fabulously royal. I discovered from you that my style is edgy classic. Thanks again :-)

Hello Lauren, got a" Fashion Question" for you. How to wear large statement earrings and various shaped large hoop like earrings?
Katherine Hamar (4 months ago)
I noticed she never responded, so I might have a tip: If your face is round or square, drop earrings or elongated hoops will look better. If you have a long face, round or square hoops will look best. Also, rule of thumb for statement earrings: The bigger the earrings, the simpler the details around the neckline should be, plus avoid more than 1 piece of statement jewelry by the face at once. So, if you are wearing big earrings, opt for a watch or bracelet with it, not a necklace.

+Lisa Ann Barriner Try looking for Justine Leconte. She's a fashion designer and her videos explain about clothes in a good and technical way.

Thanks Lauren,I think u touched on all the things I need to get rid of lol
I absolutely LOVE your channel! I have been struggling to find my personal style (especially as my weight tends to fluctuate). I feel like I have wasted so much money on clothes that either didn't fit right or just didn't make me feel very good or even worse that are absolutely fabulous but I have no idea how to style them. So glad YouTube suggested your channel to me!
Mariya (7 months ago)
thank you for the video, all it really worth to make an effort😄I wonder if you could make some video about the jewelry ( studs, watches), especially of alrernative designers
karakol86 (7 months ago)
Another great video! The future you is something I struggle with. I am always flirting with the idea of finding a new job or starting my own business. Also I feel like I should wear more dresses and I buy some and I never wear them! I am approaching my mid 30s and my career is reaching its pinnacle so I feel like I should wear more corporate thungs besides pants and flats and blouses.
xspringrose (7 months ago)
Hi Lauren, re point #5, if you're in your early 20s don't you think it's good to have both clothes that support the future you and clothes/trendy stuff you totally like but know you will only be wearing in this (fleeting) moment in your life? I'm 23 and definitely have some "keep" pieces but don't feel bad with living in the moment style wise as I buy from places like Missguided, Asos, Lulus, Poshmark etc that I don't feel so bad with buying for my current aesthetic knowing I'm not spending much

susan1326 (7 months ago)
Great video, Lauren! I recently moved from a high profile leadership position to working from home. I have a whole closet full of professional attire to donate. Any tips on dressing for a home-based job? I find myself tending to go the awful sweatpants and leggings and tees.
Katherine Hamar (4 months ago)
I work from home and make a habit not to leave my bedroom without getting dressed. Also, I aim to be dressed for "coffee date" attire as I call it, so if I have to leave at a moment's notice or somebody stops by, I am still appropriate but not needing to be in full business attire. Laying out my clothes the night before (or sometimes 3 days at a time depending on schedule) is super helpful.
Jennys Soapbox (7 months ago)
75% of my clothes dont fit and there is no way I will get rid of them. My weight fluctuates and it probably always will. No torture whatsoever.

Karen M. (7 months ago)
I've watched a few of your videos and while they are well done there's a fashion dominatrix vibe you're giving off. as if anyone not on board your ideas should just get lost Losers. bc you seem like a Heather.
Karianne Hylkema (6 months ago)
That's exactly what I've been thinking for a while. Good information, bad vibes. Still watching though.

I used to live in a tiny town. I gave a nice camel jacket that did not suit my style to the thrift store. Three weeks later, I saw another lady in town wearing it, and she looked great in it. I felt so happy!

missmayflower (7 months ago)
You made so many great points! Those concepts don’t just apply to our wardrobes, but to everything we keep in our homes. You made me realize that I’m hanging onto some beautiful items that were gifts from someone who turned out to be very toxic. Every time i see them, I think of that person. So insightful. I’m going in the opposite direction to you. I’ve retired and have to admit that I’ll never wear those corporate pieces again or those heels. I need to move forward into the casual, more artsy, comfortable wardrobe that I used to only dream about. This is a tough love video. What you are suggesting is so hard to do, but will be so worth it. You are obviously moving forward and your insights will help other women to do the same.

Thank you so much for the advises especially your mentioning about our body shape changes as we aged. Likely I need to get myself new underwear that fit my current body shape, and to get rid of a few pieces that I kept for years that i did not throw away due to the amount of money I paid for.
You're so awesome 🖤

Good, sensible advice. I just started ‚spring cleaning’...there’s already a big pile of stuff to get rid off but after this video I think I might have to reconsider some pieces I decided to keep.... Also, I like this more ‚kind‘ way of pointing people in the right direction better than the ‚anti-style‘ videos. Some of those put me off a little bit, even though I mostly agreed with what you said. You just seem a much more likable person in this video (for what it’s worth...😉)

I have a really cool skirt from someone that I actually can't fit anymore, but the skirt is beautiful and I like art. So, I've decided to put it on a mannequin or dress stand or something as a piece of art rather than leave it in my closet or give it away...
visualStyle5 (7 months ago)
I literally just went to my closet and grabbed a pair of Alexander Wang jeans and another pair of jeans that I love but cannot fit and took them out! I’ve been holding on to them in hopes that I will get my 20’s body back, but since turning 30 (I’m now 31) my body has gotten a lot thicker and curvier .... which is ok. I’m going to give them to one of my employees who’s in her 20’s and I know she will appreciate them and look amazing in them. I needed to see this video ❤️
Miia - (7 months ago)
I totally do the first one but I ain't gonna loose them cause I gained like 10kg after summer (don't even know how) and I'm gonna get rid of it now, I've lost around 2kg now but more importantly I've lost like 8cm from my waist. I don't mind the weight as long as the weight is more lean muscle and less..well fat. But next New year's if they don't fit, they're gone. I promise.

Hi there. The woman that you want to be is the woman you can be. And on some level, your mind’s eye can create a picture of how your future self will (want to) present herself. At the very least, you can probably articulate what she wouldn’t be interested in wearing. Good luck.
