Finding your personal style can be quite a tricky journey. We have all made cringe-worthy fashion choices before we realized what we really wanted. Personal style is about identifying your choices based on what you like and what works best for your body type. In the end, it is all about reflecting your personality.
We’ve put together a guide that will help you put together a style that can be recognized throughout your wardrobe.
Guide to Finding Your Personal Fashion Style
Find your inspiration
Spend some time on the internet or social media to find your style inspiration. You might admire Olivia Palermo’s well-put together and polished style, Lauren Conrad’s feminine and classic style or maybe Lorde’s dark, edgier style. Celebrities are not the only inspiration. You might like preppy, nautical clothes, boho look or chic and elegant outfits. Take your pick. Decide which style reflects the real you.
De-clutter and organize that wardrobe
In order to cultivate a personal style, you must get rid of pieces from your closet that you haven’t worn in a long time and the ones that do not fit in with your intended style. A cleansed closet will make you feel ready for quality investment.
Don’t hoard. Stick to your style & Shop smart
Don’t just buy the next item that you like in your favorite store. Keep your style inspiration and what’s left in your closet in mind and only shop for certain wardrobe staples. Consider which situations (like work, shopping, dinner, gym, interview) you can wear your chosen item in. The more categories your pieces fit in, the better. Before you know it, you will have put together a great selection.
Wear the right size. Find a good tailor.
Only your own size can give you the most flattering fit. If you can’t find the perfect fit, find a tailor to customize the fit for you. It is not the smallest size but your own that’s going to make you look good and feel confident.
Accessorizing with the right items will definitely complete that look you are trying to achieve. You can choose minimal, delicate jewelry for a feminine look or carry a nice structured bag for a sophisticated look. The ideas and options are endless.
