You can’t find your personal style overnight. It doesn’t happen quickly. It takes time, a little bit of research, and a lot of dedication. If you’re desperately looking to update your style or find a style that defines who you are as a person, this list is here to help. It combines all of those different elements into tips that will help you define your personal style in what will feel like no time at all! Sure, this may feel like an arduous process at some times, but with this list, the process will always feel fun!
1. Stalk Fashion Blogs
Doesn’t it seem like everyone has a fashion blog these days? While it might feel a little overwhelming, it can actually be a huge asset to you. Find girls with fashion blogs with similar style to what you’re trying to achieve. You’ll get constant outfit inspiration and someone to look to when you run out of ideas!
2. Make a Pinterest Account
Pinterest is an endless hole of outfit inspiration. If you want to perfect your own personal style but don’t even know where to begin, look to Pinterest. You can create a board filled with outfits and pieces you never would’ve found in your local stores. It’s such an easy place to find unique outfit inspiration!
3. Don’t Be Picky about the Stores You Shop at
When you’re looking for a new personal style, don’t restrict yourself to any particular store. Look at everything. Go to stores you normally wouldn’t shop at. You may just be surprised at the hidden gems you find!
4. Find Your Style Spirit Animal
Find a celebrity whose style you absolutely love. I personally have a list of people whose style I love, and whenever I’m feeling uninspired, I’ll search for them and “street style” to give myself some new and fresh ideas. So many style stars are out there and we have so little time!
5. Choose Your Signature Pieces to Base the Rest of Your Clothes on
Pick your signature pieces that you want to base the rest of your personal style on. From there, you’ll have a clear vision of what you want your personal style to be. It will be easier to buy clothes that go with your personal style, because you can think back to those pieces and whether or not the clothes you’re buying go with them!
6. Know Yourself
You need to know yourself to truly understand your personal style. By know yourself, I don’t just mean know your personality, which is important. I also mean your age. Dress in a way that’s appropriate for your age. If you’re a teenager, dress like a teenager. If you’re a twenty-something, dress like a twenty-something. If you spend most of your time at school or work, your wardrobe should reflect that. Tailor your wardrobe depending on your typical day.
7. Go through Your Wardrobe
Once you decide on a personal style, spend an hour or two going through your current wardrobe. You’ll find so many pieces that go along with your personal style, which stops you from having to buy a whole new wardrobe, and you’ll also find pieces that don’t work at all, that you can get rid of!
