The Search for the Missing Statement Focal Point
In the quote above, Rachel names several items needed to build a good outfit formula. But in the book referenced above, she goes on to say that the biggest problems her clients face in creating their outfits is that they forget to create a statement focal point.
She says that having such a focal point gives the eye somewhere to go when someone looks at the outfit. Without it, you may find that something is off with your outfit, or that it seems plain or boring. That's a problem I have had with my own wardrobe, and now, I know that that is probably why.
In creating the outfit formulas for your capsule wardrobe, the focal point might be the most important thing to choose, and that is true for any capsule, French style or not.
A statement focal point can be any part of the outfit, from a blouse to a pair of earrings or even shoes, it just has to have the power to draw the eye. - Rachel Nachmias, The Curated Wardrobe
