Preparing Style Card

About Styling ChallengesHow To Enter  |  Preparing Your Style Card

Styling Challenges are a fun way to gain modeling experience and test your skills at styling SL’s hottest fashions! This is your chance to let your creativity shine through and impress the judges—your fellow peers.

One part of this includes the overall description of your styling challenge outfit. But realize that your time on the runway will be limited. As much as you may want to share every detail about your outfit, time may not permit. It’s important to focus on the things that will get everyone’s attention and make the connection between your look and the styling theme.

The way you describe your outfit (and the connection to the overall theme) is just as important in how you wear your clothing and accessories. To help you put your best foot forward, the MW Styling Contest team has put together some helpful hints on writing your styling card. Combining these hints with your own style and flair, your look just might be a winning style!

Good Luck and Happy Styling!

1. Introduction:
Reflect the styling theme of your outfit. Say one or two sentences that tell everyone how and why you styled your particular outfit. Was color your inspiration? Maybe a fabric? Or was it a specific RL designer? If you get stuck on this, a good way to start can be telling us the starting point for your outfit.

Whatever the source of inspiration,it is important to connect your whole look back to the theme. The judges/ audience will appreciate your explanation and it will help them when it comes time to vote.

2. Basic Information.
Let the judges/ audience know specifics about your outfit. Include information about your clothing (tops/blouses, pants, skirts, shoes, etc.) as well as your major accessories (such as skin, hair, jewelry, handbags, etc.).

it’s easiest to present this as a simple list, for example:

Clothing:
Top – Maitreya Madeup Blouse
Jeans – Mon Tissu Example Jeans
Boots – N-core High Heel Boots
Accessories:
Bag – My Big Bag
etc etc

Other appearance items such as stockings, undies, manicures, lashes, eyes, shades, etc. are optional items that may not require explicit explanation UNLESS it’s crucial to the overall styling to the theme component.

Have your style card ready in a notecard before you take to the stage for the challenge, and cut and paste into local chat. Paste a few lines at a time, so people have time to read and digest. Be ready to answer questions and hear comments. And enjoy!
