You’re Professional Style is British Sophistication

You are very precise and sophisticated in your professional style.


Your dream closet is full of:

Classic dresses with a modern twist

A coat for every occasion

Clothes that fit you to a tee

The just-so accessories for every outfit

Your style icon is Kate Middleton (Princess Kate)

You want everything in your outfit to be just so. You will accept nothing less than precise fit, match, and design in your clothing and accessories. But since you don’t have a royal clothing budget it can be hard to sustain this type of wardrobe. Statement pieces and a high/low dressing are your secret sauce.

A statement piece is one item in your outfit that people take note of and comment on. It can be an accessory (jewelry, purse, shoes, belt, scarf) or a unique garment. It often results in the comment: "you always look so pulled together."

High-Low dressing is when you mix your expensive things with your lower-priced items. Wearing those special event earrings with your dress from Zara (even Kate shops there) takes your outfit to the next level. Making all of your outfits look like something out of a princess's closet. But at a fraction of the cost.

The British Sophistication must haves.

Your wardrobe must haves are:

Belted dress

A well-tailored wool coat

A full suit (jacket, skirt, and blazer)

Classic print silk blouse (think polka dots or small flowers)

Great places for you to shop.

Every time you open your closet the battle between putting on yoga pants (again) and a real outfit begins. The yoga pants usually win.

Is this you but you’d like to change things?

Let’s face it, naked isn’t an option! At least not most of the time. So I want to make sure women over 50 understand how to create their own style.

I show you how to decide which garments are allowed to take up space in your closet and how to put them together for a look that is only yours (minus the frump).

I’m Kim Hancher, Style Coach and recovering corporate girl. Here are some things that make me uniquely, me.

I love: the color green, vegetarian food, laughing, the latest exercise class, and a good purse. I live in the San Francisco Bay Area with my husband, twin daughters, and fluff-ball Bruno.. And when I’m not shopping can be found on some sort of sports field cheering my girls on. I’m a fiercely loyal Capricorn who believes we all deserve to feel stylish.
