As a young girl, I have always had a strong love and passion for everything fashion. I enjoy creating and playing around with different looks. In order for me to understand the beauty behind fashion, I felt it essential to develop my own sense of style. Now, I understand this may not come easy to everyone and that’s perfectly fine !
I often get messages from friends and strangers asking how I put certain outfits together or requesting help creating a look. I understand it can be overwhelming figuring out what works for you. Look no further, as I share some tips for finding your personal style.
1. Start off With Basics:
The foundation of developing your perfect wardrobe will start with investing in basic pieces e.g., good pair of jeans, little black dress, blazer, jacket, top and shoes (sneakers and heels). Basic pieces serve as a blank canvas to build the desired look.
2. Seek Inspiration:
Create a list of some of your favorite style icons on apps such as Pinterest, Instagram, and Tumblr (yes, I know TUMBLR). Whether you desire a chic, edgy or sporty look seek some inspiration to get you started. Also, use people in your everyday life as a source of inspiration.
3. Embrace Your Shape:
We all come in various shapes and sizes. Don’t box yourself into one certain look. Play with different cuts and silhouettes. Embrace whatever shape you have been blessed with. Your confidence will enhance your overall appearance.
4. Get Out Your Comfort Zone:
Listen, when it comes to fashion there are no rules. Have fun with your clothes and play around with different looks. Remember you don’t have to box yourself into one category. Experiment and get out your comfort zone. Mix textures and prints. Don’t be afraid to make a statement.
