How Do I Find My Style?

 

  • Style is not about clothes alone
  • Fashion can be bought – style cannot
  • We are not always born with a sense of style – but it can be learned
  • Style is consistent – but not boring

 

 Style  is such a personal thing, it’s about reflecting the real you at your very best! How do you find that elusive personal style? Here are a few ideas:

 

 Think about your personality, are you:

  • Artistic – love to be creative/different/carefree
  • Dramatic – love statement looks/strong contrasts/chic
  • Feminine – appreciate softer shapes/lady-like/graceful
  • Classic – enjoy a more formal /elegant/composed/timeless look
  • Natural – seek comfort and a more casual/sporty style.

You may be just one of these styles or more often a combination of 2 or more.

Do you lean towards a certain style out of habit 

  • May be because of a very corporate background or a recent need to take a more casual approach?
  • Are you confident that your current look is the real you?
  • Test this out, how do you really feel – how would you love to look given the opportunity and perhaps the courage?

Think about your lifestyle

  • What styles would give you confidence at work?
  • Would a different style work better in your leisure time?
  • How can you tie in the two different styles to support your personality?

Create your own style vision board

  • Take a canvas or a large sheet of paper, then look through magazines and pictures.
  • Think about the above 3 points and select pictures that represent your current and aspirational style.
  • Remember to consider your body shape when choosing

Now you know more about your style personality

  • Pull all you have learned about yourself together
  • Look through your wardrobe and see what works with your style
  • Invest in a few new items to bring your style to life
  • Remember that accessories are the magic which transforms and outfit!

 

 

 ‘Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak.’        Rachel Zoe

 

 ‘Style is more character than clothes, more attitude than affluence. It’s you making visible your inner self.  So forget what you learned about appearance not counting; you can no longer afford to be without style.’
