“When styling someone, the first thing I ask is ‘Do you like it?’ It’s the most important thing. If you don’t like what you are wearing, then people feel that and respond accordingly. You won’t have the necessary confidence to pull it off. But if you like it, wear it. Just make sure it fits right.”
