We often compare ourselves to celebrities, friends and family members. You just adore the way they dress and they seem to glow in the wake of their unique personal styles. Comparing ourselves to others is just our human nature. I too used to look at others and just wish I was as stylish as they were. That was until I set out to discover and develop my own style. There are guidelines that you should follow to defining your personal style. You are just as stylish and unique as anyone else. It's time that you stepped into and own your unique difference. Girl, you are beautiful and quirky just like me so let's get to it!
Developing your Personal Style
Know who you are. This is a big part of defining your style. You must truly know you, what makes you happy? What makes you moody? What makes you unique? If you miss this step you will find yourself mimicking someone close to you or even your favorite celebrities style. Wear what makes you feel the best version of yourself.
Who are your fashion muses? Write a list of five fashion muses. People that your truly admire their style. Now, narrow down what you have in common. If you do not have anything in common with anyone you wrote down in your list then mark them off because that style will be no where in your core.
Who is the superstar of YOUR show? Every style has a superstar, so there's no exception to your style. Is it that colorful scarf, those trendy earring? Maybe it's that bracelet that everyone stops to gawk at. The show stopper of your style screams your personality.
Do you have that repeat item in your closet. Example: closet full of striped shirts. Closet full of yellow and red shoes. It keeps making a cameo in your closet for a reason. You gravitate towards that item because it makes you feel comfortable so pay close attention to that. Your personality lies there along with your sense of style.
Play with your strengths. Is your back to die for or how about your sexy legs? Do you have legs and a back that are hella toned? These are strengths you want to show off. You want to find items that flatter your strengths.
Maintain a flawless face. I know we get so wrapped up in our wardrobe that sometimes we forget what completes that look and that is accentuating the beautiful features of your face. Part of your style is your beauty look. So go wild, sexy, plain, etc with it. It's your face and your personal style so do whatever your heart desires.
