A lot of people out there have a really hard time defining their personal style or taste when it comes to fashion. I am all about being unique and picking and choosing when it comes to trends. Here are 5 tips I have come up with for finding and defining your own individual style!
Anywhere and everywhere. Online, in stores, at flea markets… “Regular” sizes and Plus. Know what people are wearing. Make it your business to know what people are wearing, then figure out what you like or dislike.
2. Your Silhouette
Try things on. Even if you think it will not flatter your figure, you may end up surprised with what looks good on you! Remember: what’s the worse thing that could happen? You go “ewwwww” to something for about 30 seconds? Or you may end up going “Hot DAMN!” instead!
3. Be Open & Receptive
To new colors, silhouettes, textures, print, and styles. As I said above, and I will repeat it again: you never know what you may surprise you!
4. Find Inspiration
What tickles your pickle? Floats your boat? This is what will help define where you want to take your style.
Do you love vintage? Edgy? Rustic? Punk? The list goes on… but it all comes down to what makes your “heart skip a beat!”
5. Define Your Style “Rules”
Last but not least, put the above 4 topics to a tanglable idea. What do you like to wear? What will you absolutely NOT wear? What’s your target “look?” What are “your colors?”
Remember, this can change and will change. Your style and preference comes and goes and never should stay stagnant.
