How to Create Your Personal Style

Thursday, April 23, 2015

Developing your own personal style can be a process if you've yet to find it. 

But it can be a little less overwhelming with a few little tips....

1// Visualization is key. I've had "inspiration photos" of Rachel Bilson and Lauren Conrad {still style icons} hanging in my closet for aaaages. I inadvertently made a real life pinterest board before it was a thing. Now that it is a thing, utilize it. Also utilize fashion magazine photos, style blogs... ANYTHING visual. Find styles that catch your eye and use them.

2// Create style goals using your visuals. Ask yourself what styles you're gravitating toward most and how you want to incorporate that into your wardrobe. Do you want to have a minimalist wardrobe? Professional? A mix?

3// Shop your closet. Get rid of anything you you no longer find appealing or feel fits your style goals.

4// Back to basics. Make a list of all the basic pieces for your style and wardrobe. An LBD, a good pair of skinnies, plain white tee, jewelry.... list them and get those basics.

5// Have fun with it. This sounds like the end of every middle school project instruction sheet, but it's probably the most important one. Finding your personal style is all about playing around with it and finding what works and what you feel confident in. 

Don't be afraid to try new things either. You don't have to have one set style.

That's the thing about fashion, you can always make it new and unique to you.
