“If you know what your best is, then you know your best colors and you know your style personality. You can take all of those and enhance yourself to be memorable, to be recognizable, and to have an impact.” – Audrey Beaulac
Everywhere we turn we’re bombarded by messages from people telling us what we “should” look like. However, this Finding Brave expert guest shows us why style is so much more than just clothes we wear and the way we style our hair, as it’s really about taking control of your style profile and creating a ‘Style Signature’ that gets you noticed and remembered.
Since 1994, Audrey Beaulac has been the style strategist and secret weapon of prominent executives, entrepreneurs and change agents.
Audrey’s lifelong depth of style sense goes beyond simply following trends to instead create an intimate connection between her clients and their wardrobes. As a highly sought after Style Strategist, her focus is on creating a cohesive collection that gets to the root of your ultimate goal – your authenticity personified.
Audrey shows us how to start identifying your style, and the ways to gain awareness around certain fashion triggers. Creating your own wardrobe story can be energizing because when you’re in harmony with your personal appearance and how you feel, it can lead to having more power and bravery in your life.

“If we’re wearing things that don’t feel like us, we could be in the wrong career.” [7:28]
“I think when we connect with our clothing and what we’re wearing, it fortifies us not to listen to those messages because we feel good. We feel empowered, and we feel triggered by the confidence of connecting.” [11:15]
“You want the freedom to express yourself because you’ve earned it.” [13:04]
