Do you sometimes feel lost when it comes to fashion? Or, maybe you wish you could feel more confident in expressing your personal style?
Developing a unique fashion sense is not as difficult as it may seem. With the right tips and tricks, anyone can have a stylish wardrobe that speaks volumes about their individual personality. Let’s take a look at eight tips that can help you develop your personal style.
How to Find Your Personal Style
Don’t be afraid to try something new! Trying out different styles and new trends can help you discover what works for you while expressing your individuality.
Sometimes you find you look terrific in something completely unexpected, like a bold color or pattern. Having fun and experimenting with fashion can help you better understand what fits your personality.
For instance, if you’re feeling daring, try out bright colors or eye-catching statement pieces. What do you have to lose? You don’t have to stick to any particular look or trend if you decide it’s not for you.
2. Create a mood board
Creating a mood board is helpful for visualizing the kinds of looks you love. This can be anything from photos, magazine clippings, artwork–anything that catches your eye. Creating and then looking at your mood board will help you identify the trends and styles that draw you in and can help you create a personal fashion aesthetic.
A good idea when creating a mood board is to focus on the overall feeling or vibe you want to communicate with your look. Is it classic, artsy, bohemian, sporty, young and trendy, vintage, casual, or something else?
3. Invest in basics
It’s easy to get swept up in the latest trends, but it’s important to invest in timeless pieces as well. Having outfits made up of basic items such as black pants, white shirts, a good blazer, and a denim jacket, will provide the foundation for any outfit.
These foundation pieces will give you a jumping off point, so you can mix and match these items, along with other pieces, to get several different looks.
Here’s a list of some basic wardrobe essentials you can start with. You don’t have to buy everything at once, and you may already have many of these items in your closet.
- neutral-colored t-shirts
- a crisp, white button-up shirt
- a pair of black pants
- one or two pairs of jeans
- cardigan(s) for layering
- a well-fitting blazer
- a black dress
- simple flats
- white tennis shoes
- a good pair of heels
Over time, you can build up a collection of basics that will have you prepared for any occasion.
4. Find fashion inspiration
Don’t be afraid to look for fashion inspiration. Whether it’s from celebrities or influencers on social media, there are plenty of style icons out there to provide guidance when it comes to fashion. For example, KPop clothes, which are well known for their unique, bold, and colorful style are definitely having a moment.
But remember, taking inspiration from others doesn’t mean you have to copy their style exactly–instead, think of it as a starting point, and make the look your own by adding elements that fit your own personal style. These items can be as subtle as a necklace or scarf, or go bold!
5. Pay attention to fit
Fashion is all about feeling comfortable in what you wear, which is why paying attention to fit is so important. A properly-fitted garment can instantly elevate an outfit and make it look more polished and put together, while an ill-fitting piece of clothing can appear sloppy.
Pay particular attention to the details such as sleeve length, pant length, and neckline when shopping for clothes.
Always try on any items you’re considering buying as they may fit differently than expected. Seeing how an item fits you is the best way to judge if it works for your individual style.
Accessories are an essential part of any outfit and can help to transform a basic look into something much more stylish. Hats, jewelry, bags, and scarves can all add a unique touch to your ensemble and make it stand out from the crowd.
Don’t be afraid to mix and match different accessories to create a look that’s all your own. Taking the time to experiment with different accessories can help you find the ones that best fit your style and personality.
Try to focus on timeless pieces that you can use for years to come. These have the potential to become the statement pieces in your wardrobe. Knowing what works for your body type is also an important factor when accessorizing.
7. Mix high-end and low-end pieces
Having a mix of both high-end and low-end items in your wardrobe is the key to creating unique looks without breaking the bank. Investing in some quality basics can make any outfit look more expensive, while lower-priced pieces can be used to add a bit of an edge or interest.
For example, you could pair a designer shirt with an inexpensive statement necklace or mix high-end shoes with a thrifted skirt. This can help you create a stylish look even on a budget. Thrift stores and re-sale shops are terrific places to look for unique and interesting pieces that are affordable. You may be amazed at the high-quality items you’ll find.
8. Take care of your clothes
Taking good care of your clothes is essential to creating a lasting wardrobe that stands the test of time. Be sure to read the labels for washing instructions and always follow them carefully. This will help ensure that your garments stay looking as good as new for longer.
Since the goal is to build up a collection of timeless pieces that work for your individual style, you’ll want to make sure that everything stays in good condition and can be re-worn over and over again.
There, you have it, eight tips for developing your own personal style. Once you’ve got the basics down, experiment with different trends.
Have fun with fashion and don’t be afraid to take a few risks–it’s the only way to find out what works best for you. With a bit of trial and error, you’ll soon be able to put together stylish looks that make you feel great.8 Tips for Developing Your Personal Style | #fashion Click To Tweet
