When you list someone as stylish, what do you see in them that shapes your opinion? Is it just the way they look? Or maybe it’s a je ne sais quoi you can’t relate to only one element. Style is more about how to express yourself without words, the way you do the things you do, besides the status quo and fashion can help with finding your style. Here you can find some recommendations for creating or enhancing your personal style:
Choosing a Style Icon
There might be someone from real life, movies, or tv shows that you really admire. Think about it and for sure you will find people alike or people who makes you sigh every time you see a picture.
Analyzing your routine
Depending on the kind of job you have, your hobbies, and social lifestyle. If you have formal meetings during the week, then investing in a power suit or dress, and good heels will always be good to have. If you are a gym lover and work out very often, then you should invest in high-quality active wear. And If you are very social and enjoy going out with your friends at night, you can invest in a few trendy and bold pieces.
Understanding your body type
- Hourglass: This body type is balanced; shoulders and hips are about the measurements. You can take advantage of clothing that enhances your waist, wrap dresses and tops featuring ties or belts are key.
- Apple: This body type is more prominent at the upper body. Bring attention to your lower half like with full skirts and flared pants with cool patterns.
- Pear: This body type is narrow up and wider at the bottom (full hips and thighs). Wearing tops with eye-catching necklines to draw attention upward, or long necklaces can be a nice trick to pick your clothing style.
- Rectangle: This body type is full-figured, shoulders, waist, and hips are approximately the same in measurement. Pick out clothing that makes you appear curvier, try a waist-cinching belt, ruffled tops, and high-waisted pants.
Checking all the items in your closet
Pay attention to the clothing you already own and be honest to yourself! We usually feel like we have nothing to wear, but the truth is that we have a lot of items we don’t even remember sometimes, so get rid of those unflattering ones and just keep the ones you really like.
Also, store the other seasons’ clothes and put your top picks on an easy place to reach in your closet to have a more positive experience and easier time putting together your style and dressing up in the mornings. These are just a few tips, but it is you the only one who can define what makes you feel more comfortable and express yourself through your clothes.
