The key to looking fabulous begins with identifying what kind of style personality you have. True, you do have a handful of different styles. But which one truly speaks to you?
Keep reading…your personal style is waiting.
Find Your Style doppelganger.
The chance of finding a single style icon that defines you is a bit low. Most people are more of a mix. To figure out who your main influencers are, start by doing a search of “style icons” and save the images you are drawn to. You’ll start to see a collection of repeated persons who you can look to for inspiration.
Put A Label On It.
Take a second look at your inspiration photos, look beyond the names, and focus on the outfits. Pick a few words to describe the vibe of the looks. Are they ladylike, modern, edgy, bohemian, or classic? Settle on a handful of words that feel true to your style, and write them down for future reference, as they will help you clarify and define your look.
Choose a Signature Piece.
Audrey Hepburn had her cropped pants and ballet flats, Jackie O. had her oversized sunglasses, and Edie Sedwick had her statement earrings and mod minis. All fashionable women own a signature item or two that becomes part of their style identity. Yours can be as simple as a personalized piece of jewelry or even a particular colour.
Play up Your Strengths.
Is there something people compliment you on? Whether it’s your toned back or your hourglass figure, wearing clothes that play up your best assets always looks stylish, no matter what is currently trendy.
Trust your instincts, and wear what makes you feel like the best version of yourself. You already have a great sense of style, so embrace it, and refine it and own it.
