“Why change? Everyone has his own style. When you have found it, you should stick to it.”
― Audrey Hepburn
The effect of personal style goes far beyond making a good first impression; style is also about facing each day with confidence, and the ability to feel pretty in what we are wearing. Believe it or not, the right wardrobe can make a difference in that part.
When it comes to wardrobe, I want you to really know what you like, understand what looks good on you, and how to shop. Thus when you find the right piece to add to your closet you can say, “This is my style! This is me!
Here are some of the useful tips that may help you find your personal style:
Look For Inspiration
- List the names of your favorite style icons and do a bit of research via Instagram or Pinterest to gather inspiration from their looks. Maybe you gravitate towards Victoria Beckham’s minimal/clean look, or of Anna Dello Russo’s street chic style. Pulling different types of inspiration from several sources is a great way to figure out what you like and dislike.
Select a Signature Piece
- Fashionable women own a signature item or two that becomes part of their style identity. Yours can be as simple as a personalized piece of jewelry, a pair of sneakers or a suit you could never part with. Statement pieces are interesting, attractive and relatively eye-catching wardrobe items that show your personality. Most of the time, they are quite bold and unique, but not inevitably vibrantly colored and outsize.
Pattern it to your Lifestyle
- Think about the personality you want to present to the world. You want your style to show your character, but it also has to make sense in your field of work, your overall lifestyle, the place you live in and associated with your life goals.
For example, if you want to work in fashion, add more trendy pieces that are also timeless so you don’t waste your money. If your work setting is informal, you may want to buy more jeans.
Consider consulting with the experts
- Never hesitate to consider the help of a professional. Keep in mind; you don’t need to pay for a personal stylist. Instead, you may visit a department store or your favorite boutique and ask for advice and opinions from the sales associates and stylists. They definitely are expert on what they are doing.
- Always be true to yourself. Trust your instincts, and dress in what makes you feel like the best version of yourself.
You’ve probably already got a sense of killer style, so embrace it, and refine it.
Your style should be a sign of yourself and rejoice your life, your individuality, and personality. Own your style, be confident of it, and embrace fashion as a way to express who you are and who you want to be.
