Style is and should be personal, but it can be easy to get caught in a style rut or feel overwhelmed by ever-changing trends. Finding your personal style can help you look and feel your best every day.Here are some tips on how to find your personal style:
1. Find inspiration
The great news is that there are so many places you can look for style inspiration! Check out Pinterest and create a board for all of the outfits and looks that you love. You’ll likely start to notice a pattern, whether the looks you pick are more minimalist or you gravitate to patterns and colour.
2. Clean out your closet
If you’ve lost your sense of personal style, your closet is likely full of pieces that you don’t love and don’t wear. Cleaning out your closet provides you with a good way to hit the refresh button on your wardrobe and identify the pieces that you wear regularly and feel good in. Clearing out space in your closet will help you hone in on the styles you love, and make room for new clothes that you’ll actually wear.
3. Invest in pieces that last
After you’ve cleaned out your closet, you’ll be able to tell what your wardrobe is missing to complete your personal style. Identifying these missing pieces will help you shop smarter and prevent you from spending money on items you don’t need or won’t end up wearing. It’s a good idea to spend more money on staple pieces that you can wear in different combinations, like a good handbag and a nice coat. Don’t be afraid to get playful with other pieces like blouses and accessories to really make the look your own.
4. Shop according to your lifestyle
It’s important to keep your lifestyle in mind so that your personal style is reflected and your everyday style will fit your life. Make a list of all of the situations you may find yourself in in a given week, whether it’s work, a special occasion, a trip to the gym or dinner with your partner. This will help you hone in on the pieces you need and the looks that will work best for your lifestyle.
