The Real Guide To Develop Your Personal Style
“Style is a way of saying who you are, without having to speak”
Fashion plays a very important role in every woman’s life, because if you have your style sorted and can carry your outfit well, then you exude confidence. Also, the perks of having found your personal style are that getting dressed in the morning will be a breeze. So if you are in between sizes, or still trying to figure your personal style out, then listed below are some tips, that may help you get out of this perpetual conundrum.
Stop Caring About What Anyone Has To Say
Is my outfit okay? Do I look okay? These questions are irrelevant. If you feel confident and comfortable in what you’re wearing then go for it. It doesn’t matter what I think, your best friend thinks, or Beyonce thinks of your outfit, as long as you like it.
You have to constantly inspire yourself. Whether it is style icons, celebrities, magazines, personal style blogs, just have an open eye and be receptive to it.
Don’t Take Yourself Too Seriously
Always do what comes naturally to you, stay in touch with who you are and express it through your outfits. If a pink phase is what you are going through, then heck go all out and all pink! Because those outfits will be you.
Style Quizzes – DON’T TAKE THEM
Don’t restrict yourself to the result of a style quiz you took in a magazine, or don’t do things just because everyone else does it. If you take 10 style quizzes in a day, at least 6 of them will give you different results. And come on, these are as scientific as conspiracy theories, so it’s okay to skip them.
Do not pin yourself down to a certain style. Whatever appeals to you, is your style and it need not fit into a cookie cutter. It’s never a good idea to have one closet completely filled with the same style. The final goal is to get to a point where you love everything you own.
Don’t Follow Rules
Break the fashion rules. If someone says you can’t wear leggings with a short top, or high heels and a backpack just ignore them. You can match whatever you feel like. Only your personal creativity can give birth to your personal style!
Ask Yourself The Following Questions
If you were a pair of shoes, what shoe would you be? Or if you were a necklace, which one would you be? And that is how you can pick your shoe and necklace!
Let Your Feelings Translate Into Your Clothes
The way you feel like on a certain day should be an extension of your style that day. If you feel like a girly girl, then wear that lacy dress. Feeling like rockstar? Then go rocker chic! Go ahead and throw that leather jacket on.
Don’t Trend Hop
Don’t hop from trend to trend, instead try and incorporate these trends in your personal style. So if you are wearing an exaggerated sleeves top, then pair it with your favourite pair of skinny jeans or that pencil skirt you love.
If you find it difficult to put together outfits with lots of colours then stick to black and grey or neutral hues and then build on that and from there. You can then diverge into solid reds, pinks or other colours.

Your Cut and Shape
Your weight shouldn’t dictate what you can or can’t wear. But the more flattering the style and cut of the clothing is, the better you feel about yourself and the outfit.
Last but not the least, stock up on basics as they can never go wrong and always work with everything. A basic black top can look good with a preppy blazer, as well as a big chunky bohemian necklace.
