Trends come and go while fashion styles differ from one person to another. If you’re a woman who wishes to stand out from the crowd, you must be unique and original. Since fashion is all about creativity and expressing yourself, keep on reading for our guidelines to discover your own unique sense of style.
Start with your accessories.
If you don’t know what looks fit you the best, stick to the ones you feel comfortable with and incorporate accessories with your typical outfit. Like fashion blogger Mary Orton, you may be used to wearing office outfits most of the time so create some tweaks in it by trading your classic pumps to a pair of oxfords that looks masculine and trendy at the same time. Or, think of fringed bags, studded caps, bib necklaces, floral headbands, geometric necklaces and such that you feel comfortable with to keep you stylish and chic at the same time.
Play with outfit structure and silhouette.
Though going for a perfect fit matter, you may play with your outfit structure and silhouette to find the unique style that flatters you. For a minimalist look, you may be drawn to clean lines, streamlined pieces, and structured silhouette. Or, if you’re aiming for an avant-garde yet wearable look, go for architectural silhouettes with boxy structures and asymmetrical cuts. If you wish to show off your womanly curves, stick to form-hugging silhouettes and fabrics like leather, spandex, or even cotton that will accent your perfect figure.
Incorporate trends that work for you.
Trends come and go, so pick those styles that work for you. Like fashion blogger Michele Krusi, you may be drawn to 70’s style featuring flared jeans and cowboy hats. For a casual look, you may be inspired by Chiara Ferragni’s style of wearing denim-on-denim outfit while giving some tweaks in her painted denim jacket worn with jeans. Wearing socks with shoes can be a bit daunting, but you can pull it off like Jane Aldridge did if you’ll complement your shoes with a vintage dress and a classy pearl choker.
Don’t be afraid to experiment with style.
Sometimes, even a not-so-stylish piece can look fashion-forward chic when styled right. If you had a few of these pieces in your closet years ago, think of the ways you can style them before you decide on tossing them. A white tee need not remain to be a white tee as you may take advantage of its plain style to flatter your embellished pieces. With a few snips and stitches, you can make your shawl into a poncho. Also, you may think of a blazer suit as a casual wear by teaming it with a pair of denim jeans like Jane Aldridge did making the corporate style work for her street looks.
Whatever trend and fashion styles you may encounter, always go for ones that define your personality and mood. This way, you’re making the fashion works for you.
