Personal style is simply a distinctive appearance. That’s it! But it should be true to you, not developed solely from a fashion blogger or a “Top 10 Wardrobe Must Haves” list from a woman who has never even interacted with you. This distinctive appearance can be laid-back or glamorous, preppy or feminine or edgy and so on. Personal style is how you want to be seen. But how do you find yours?
When you are drawn to something you see on another woman, in a magazine, or on Pinterest, listen to that voice. In order to develop your signature style, you have to pay attention to what catches your eye. Pay attention to which of your wardrobe pieces make you feel great and which pieces drag you down. Check and see what recurring themes turn up on your style Pinterest board. Do you frequently admire the style of a notable person or celebrity? Those are the hints you want to notice. You must be intentional about it.
Good personal style is for every age, every budget,
and every body type.
It’s not only for cool LA chicks or edgy NY babes, it’s not only for fashion bloggers or people with big budgets. Personal style is for everyone and it’s about knowing what looks good on you and feeling confident about it. It means knowing how to create a flattering outfit that reflects you truly; your personality, your lifestyle, and your goals. Take a look at your daily routine and what’s in your closet. Does it reflect your desires, your taste, your aspirations? Take a look at my outfit ideas, what styles speak to you?
Like it or not, clothing sends a message about us into the world… plus we kinda have to wear it so what do you want your Personal Style to say about you?
So you might as well have a wardrobe that makes you feel great. Once you really know your personal style, you’ll shop with a purpose and bring home only clothes you love. Your closet will be truly you.
