Lynn Dell's Top Ten Style Tips

1. "We must dress everyday for the theatre of our lives."

2. "You must have a smile, you never get a second chance to make a first impression."

3. "My philosophy is fashion says 'me too,' while style says 'only me.'"

4. "It's not what you are wearing, It's how you put it together."

5. "Dress for yourself. If you are happy, you will make the world happy."

6. "Accessories are the most important thing. You can wear the same thing many times by adding different jewelry, scarves or a hat."

7. "Accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative."

8. "Your attitude is your altitude."

9. "When you walk into a room with a hat, you own the room."

10. "I like strong colors and I like strong people. All colors work if the intensity is strong enough."

Dress for the theatre of your life.
