Establishing Your Style


Hello everyone!

Personal style is a key part of fashion, and that’s what I’m going to write about today! A lot of people that get noticed for being fashionable have their own fashion taste. Are you having trouble finding your unique look? I’m here to help. 🙂

Here’s a fact to start this off with: You can be trendy and not wear what everyone else is wearing. You can do this by mixing trends and basics. I really like to wear a simple top and a pair of shorts, and then just add some cool shoes that are popular. I also think it’s nice to mix trends because you won’t look like everyone else. You can own pieces of clothing that other people have, but make it unique by styling it how you like it. Styling is very important. A shirt can be the same shirt but look different with what you wear it with (think about it).

You also don’t need to wear trends if you don’t want to. There are a lot of people that don’t, and that is perfectly okay!

“Why change? Everyone has their own style. When you have found it, you should stick to it.” -Audrey Hepburn

Another thing to remember is that everyone likes different things. If you dress in clothes that you love, you’ll already be establishing a style. People can have similar tastes in clothing, but everyone has their own. It’s important to wear what you like when you’re picking out or putting on outfits.

I personally just always wear what I want to wear. If you don’t wear things because you want to, you can end up dressing like someone else, which is not the point.

However, it’s nice to take inspiration from people if you admire someone’s taste. Finding outfits that you like and then adding to it to fit your personality is great if you’re a little bit stuck.

Something else that is a good idea is to find a store you like! Stores that people shop at can tell you about what their fashion sense is like. Discover some that you’re interested in and explore.

If you’re not sure where to start with clothing, here’s a few different places that you can check out:

If you’re having trouble styling clothes or you just feel like you don’t know how to, talk to someone that does! Styling outfits does not come naturally to everyone, so don’t feel discouraged. Other people that like fashion can help you put together outfits with items that you like. This will just add to your personal style, and it might be helpful to get advice from a pro.

“Fashions fade, style is eternal.” -Yves Saint Laurent 

If you like it, wear it. I have seen this become a lot more accepting, which is great. People have been spreading this message around more on social media. Don’t be afraid to wear what you want to. People think that you have to wear something that’s “in”, but you truly don’t have to. You are allowed to have a unique style, whether people appreciate it or not.

Psssstttt: Don’t tell anyone, but people usually pay more attention to the people who represent their own style than the others who dress like everyone else.

Embrace your fashion sense and build off of it! See where it takes you. It may change over time, or it may stay the same. Keep trying to make it the best it can be, and make sure it represents you.

“Fashion is about something that comes from within you.” -Ralph Lauren
