How to Discover (and Master) Your Personal Style
61, landscape artist and herbalist
If I could wear one thing every day it would be: a baggy shirt
Three adjectives that describe my look: bohemian, layered, loose
My weight is the main thing that keeps me from looking the way I want to look
Anyone with: artistic flair looks stylish to me
How she wants to look: Earthy and natural but not dowdy.
How she got stuck: Working with plants and soil every day made Scarlett gravitate toward flats, comfortable tops, and elastic-waist pants in dark colors. Although she loves bold rings, her job requires getting her hands dirty, so she stopped wearing them.
The Fashion Fix
Scarlett loves mixing prints but wasn't sure how to pull it off. What makes this outfit work? The patterns in the blouse, skirt, and scarf don't exactly match, but the dark colors in each piece keep the ensemble grounded. Silver jewelry with colored stones and a beaded necklace complement the eclectic vibe but don't clutter the look. Finally, platform sandals add height without making Scarlett feel unsteady. "This outfit is a more modern version of me!" she says. "It's opened my mind to trying new things like the platform shoes. And the jewelry? Just my style."
The Beauty Assist
Scarlett's long hair had lost body, so Domingo took off six inches and added a few layers to bring back the bounce. Colorist Ashley Ferrett used a light brown semipermanent dye to give Scarlett's hair a healthy shine and tint her grays to make them look like natural highlights. A cream foundation and light bronzer make Scarlett's skin glow. Sandy also lined her upper lids with a brown liquid liner to open up Scarlett's gorgeous eyes without making her look "made up."
