When it comes to fashion, we all have our individual preferences. Some women like wearing pants because they’re comfy and convenient while other women would rather get garbed up in cute and girly dresses because it makes them feel extra beautiful. Whatever you choose to wear on a daily basis reflects your own personal style, even when you haven’t fully figured out what it is. Knowing what your personal style when it comes to fashion is very convenient, though, it makes shopping for clothes a lot easier and faster and it also makes deciding on what to wear every day and easy task. Here are some tips on how to identify your own personal style.
- Choose your style icons – we all have a few favorite models and celebs who are always dressed up in clothes we wish we had. These are the people that we look up to and consider as our style icons. Your style icons tell you a huge chunk of what your personal style is. If you like the way Victoria Beckham, your style is probably more on the chic, sleek and posh side. On the other hand, if you like Zooey Deschanel’s style, yours is probably a lot like hers too: simple, girly and a bit retro.
- Look into different eras – sometimes, you don’t know you’re a child of a certain era until you know how they dressed like back then. Look into different eras and discover what fashion was like back then and see which period you get to identify with the most. The 50’s were all about fit and flare skirts and dresses as well as clean lines and silhouettes while the 60’s and 70’s fashion is easily identified with fringes and flowers.
- Listen to your fashion conscience – sometimes new trends come around and, though you really don’t like it, you are tempted to try it out just because it’s what’s popular or it’s what everybody else is wearing. These times are the perfect moments for you to identify your own personal style. Listen to the fashion goddess inside you that’s telling you what you’re better off with and without because chances are that you’ll gravitate more towards pieces that represent your personal style.
- Analyze your most worn pieces – no matter how many items of clothing you have in your closet, there will always be a few pieces that you’ll keep coming back to. Consider these pieces as your “true fews” because these are the ones that speak about your style the most. These pieces are often the ones you keep wearing as soon as they’re clean or the ones that you consider your easy go-to’s.
- Don’t be afraid to try something new – just because you already have a wardrobe complete with all the pieces you’re comfortable with wearing doesn’t mean you should stop trying something new. Who knows, your true personal style may be revealed right after you try on that bold print dress you’ve been contemplating about buying for a while now.
