How to embrace your own personal style. Clothes are the first thing people notice about you, before they get a chance to get to know you.
But when it comes to individuality and style, finding a look that defines you and makes you feel amazing can be no easy feat. It can be soul destroying searching through trends and panic-buying something you know doesn’t suit you.
But there’s nothing more liberating than wearing what makes you happy.
Here’s some tips on how you forgot about following everyone else and embrace you own personal style.
Look for style inspiration
Having a style muse will be one of the sharpest tools in your box when you hit a style rut or want to freshen up your style. Instagram and fashion blogs are a great place to find some style inspiration.
You can save your favourite looks onto your phone or Pinterest.
Take your lifestyle into account
When choosing garments for your wardrobe, it’s necessary to consider what your day-to-day is like. Whether you’re a busy mum on-the-go or stepping into your first job, let your lifestyle have a say in what you wear.
Don’t be afraid to label your style. Do you love wearing bohemian outfits? Is your style more feminine? Or do you have more of a rock vibe going on? Choosing a label will make it easier for you to find your own personal style.
But one of the great things about fashion is that you can choose any label and be whatever you want to be.
Have a signature piece
True style icons will always have their signature piece. Carrie Bradshaw had her Manolo Blahniks and Irish Apfel has her glasses. If you don’t have a signature and aren’t sure how to get one, go with something small like an accessory.
Embrace your shape
To help you look and feel your best, play to your strengths. If you know a certain style works with your body shape, don’t be afraid to wear it as often as you like.
Dare to be bold
You can’t help it if you love different colours and prints and that’s what makes your style personal. Choose pieces you love to wear and can’t stop thinking about. Don’t worry too much about being ‘in fashion’. Trends will come and go, but your own personal style is forever.
Confidence is everything
Your personal style cannot be your personal style unless you love it! Confidence is everything when it comes to rocking any outfit. Don’t be afraid to get experimental and play around with different styles.
And if you don’t feel comfortable wearing something – don’t.
