    Ladies: Are Your Clothes Aging You!

    Most of my clients are between the ages of 45 and 65. You might say they are “of a certain age.” This is a fantastic time of life for many reasons, not the least being you understand yourself better than you did in your youth. Therefore, it is the prime time for dressing for yourself, […]

    Gentleman: How to Not Look Old!

    For most of us, on the other side of 45, our image becomes a greater focus as we aim to look current, not too young, and not too old. It’s a tricky balance, and what works for one person may not work for another. That’s where a professional Carmel Wardrobe Stylist steps in. I am […]

  • Style Rules You May Break, Men!

    Style Rules You May Break, Men!

    If you aren’t sure where to start, here are my top five fashion rules to break now. Do not mix patterns – How preposterous. This rule was doomed from the start because menswear suiting fabric is often patterned: pinstripes, herringbone, and houndstooth to name a few. It would be tragic not to pair these fabrics […]

  • What Makes a Man’s Outfit Interesting?

    What Makes a Man’s Outfit Interesting?

    Lately, I have been working with many men who tell me: “I need help. I don’t know what to wear or where to start.” This means many things to me. Blog readers, for the next couple of blogs I am going to explore this topic and attempt to answer these questions, based on my experience […]

  • Why Shopping is Hard Right Now!

    Why Shopping is Hard Right Now!

    As an Indiana Image Consultant, some of my business is personal shopping – this occurs after the color analysis, style analysis, shape analysis, and wardrobe evaluation that often involves a closet cleanout. All of these steps are necessary to select the best clothing for you and not pick clothing you don’t need. Not all my […]

    Want to Work with an Indianapolis Men’s Stylist?

    Many people know about Indianapolis Men’s Stylist, but they don’t really understand what image consultants do. I am trained to do both. With Indianapolis Men’s Stylist, I spend one to two appointments getting to know clients, taking measurements, asking questions to determine style and lifestyle, and then devise a plan for shopping. Of course, part […]

  • With Image Consultants: It’s All About the Details.

    With Image Consultants: It’s All About the Details.

    As I have mentioned before, as an Indianapolis Image Consultant, I do work with men more than half the time in my practice. I like this work because I find men often have fewer preconceived notions about how they can dress. I like to sit down and talk with every client and always ask: “How […]

    What’s In for Men…

    Men, if you want to try some trends for fall, here are some ideas from your Indianapolis Men’s Stylist. First, in general, silhouettes are slightly bigger, something like the 90s. If you are a larger guy, make sure you don’t go too big. It will not flatter you. Conversely, if you are a more slight […]

  • Yellow: The Joys and The Pitfalls

    Yellow: The Joys and The Pitfalls

    If you haven’t yet heard, Yellow (and grey) are the Pantone Colors of the Year. As an Image Consultant, I first became familiar with Pantone colors in my first writing job and seeing my graphic designer colleague select colors for our various publications. It was so interesting to see what she put together. Pantone picked […]

    Flattering Hair Color Part 2

    Two blogs ago, we started to explore the topic of finding the right hair color as we age and our hair starts to grey. While in my first blog I encourage men to show some gray, with ladies, it’s another story. I believe 100 percent that most women who let their hair go completely grey […]
