I think style is very different from fashion. Fashion was what I went after when I was feeling incredibly insecure and monstrous on the inside.
Texture is something we forget - it makes outfits look very expensive. You can do a monochromatic outfit, if you're afraid of things that are more colorful and printed, and still create interest.
Self-esteem doesn't come simply from dressing well, but they are both something we can control. It's a missed opportunity when women say they don't have the money, figure, etc., because style is such a way to help cultivate the way women feel about themselves.
You can't fit your clothes well and look your best if you don't know what you're working with.
