Style is a way of telling people who you are. It is a way to feel good about yourself. To feel comfortable in your own skin and learning to be happy with who you are. Finding your own personal style is so much more than clothes. It can have such a positive impact on your own self-worth. Your confidence. If you too, like so many others, are struggling with how to find your own personal style, fear not! You are just a few steps away from owning the way you look………………………
Take a look at your wardrobe. Which items do you reach for time and time again? What is the fail-safe outfit you wear that always makes you feel good?
Now pick out 6 to 8 tops. This could be T-Shirts, blouses, shirts, knitwear or blazers. Focus on the top half. Only pick the items that you love and wear religiously.
Next, work on the bottom half. Pick out 6-8 bottoms. This could be Jeans, leggings, trousers or skirts. Again only pick the items you continuously reach for.
Place them all on your bed or a flat surface and start pulling outfits together with them.
These outfits represent your personal style.
There are many variations and categories of style which are completely dependant on the individual. Take a look at the outfits you just pulled together and see where they fit in the list below. Are they:
Whichever category your outfits fit in provides you with your own personal style comfort zone. You may fall into more than one and that’s ok. I fall into minimal and classic with maybe a touch of masculine thrown in for good measure!
Once you have discovered which categories are your comfort zone. Do a bit of research. Pinterest would be a great place to start. Look at outfit combinations within your own personal category. Create some mood boards for inspiration. Then when you go shopping make sure you stay within the walls of your category. Do not deviate!
When shopping, be sure to pick items that fit the lifestyle you have, not the lifestyle you wish you had.
