What's Your Signature Style?

Your style is something that reflects your personality and creativity, and is also is what people see first besides your face, so it’s a huge factor in first impressions! Whether it be a first date, first day at a new school, or an interview your “style” is what sticks out the most and you want it to reflect who you are. Here are some tips I’ve always fallowed in how to find and maintain my style:

Tip# 1 Determine your personal style.
            Determine whether you are contemporary or traditional. From there are a few different styles, there’s classic, bohemian, punk, sophisticated chic, trendy (ever-changing with the times) 60’s inspired, 80’s inspired, 90’s I could go on and on. And it doesn’t have to be black and white FASHION IS NOT BLACK AND WHITE haha, it’s always changing and evolving. It’s okay to have more than one. I consider myself as a modern classic chic with a trendy twist, for example I take trends that I’m comfortable with and incorporate them into my wardrobe in a more demure way, nothing over the top and that works for me.

Tip #2: Imitate a celebrity.
            Think of a celebrity whose style you are drawn to for instance one of the Olsen twins, Rachel Zoe, the Kardashian sisters, Lauren Conrad, Blake Lively, Rachel Bilson, there are so many to choose from and it’s even better to have more than one who has the same taste! After you have found a celebrity google their style, for example just type Kim Kardashian’s style or for a more specific search you can type in Kim Kardashian casual style, fashions, beach day, ect. You can also look at magazines, interviews, and tabloids they’re in. From that you can see what they’re wearing and pretty much copy them whether it be the same exact outfit or just taking pieces from it. Also keep in mind your body type, if you can find a celebrity who’s style you love but also has your body type then great! But if not that’s fine too. Just keep in mind that there may be some things that work for them but may not for your shape. You can also take any celebrities style and add your own personal touches to them as well!

Tip#3: Don’t be afraid.
            If you like something then wear it! The most important thing about style is it’s a reflection of YOU and it needs to suit your personality. If you’re out shopping with family or friends and they don’t like a shirt you like go into the fitting room and try it on anyway. Look in the mirror and first think if you like it and if it suits you well. Then take their criticism into consideration and see if you’re comfortable. You may come to the conclusion that maybe they are right and not get it ORRR you may fall in love with it. If you really love something and think it suits your style well, then don’t be afraid of what people think and buy it!

Tip# 4: Remember what suits your Body and coloring.
            Take these into consideration when shopping for your style… your body type, hair, skin, and eye color, and height. You always want to make sure you’re choosing colors that compliment your coloring and outfits that compliment your body shape. Like I said before just because something works for one person it may not work for you also just because something doesn’t work for a friend it may still look great on you!!

Hope this helps!

Ta Ta for now!
