Developing a Sense of Style

A sense of style can show the world who you are, but how do you figure out your own sense of style? In this episode we answer a listener question from Steph who asks "I am a primarily feminine non-binary individual, born male. How does one go about developing a sense of style for one's new self?  I am trying to learn what feels right for me, but I do not have the education of someone that grew up female.  Also, do you have any advice for growing a brand new wardrobe?" We'll talk about finding different looks, keys to a robust wardrobe, and how to have fun figuring out your own sense of style.
