1. Set a day to go on style hunt through your local stores but DO NOT buy anything!
When I wanted usually to get something specific or something that I had in my mind that I need to wear, I was just going on specific store online and I was ordering whatever that could look like what I had in my mind or I was jumping from store to store in rush to just find what I wanted and I usually ended up with something else or even worse something unflattering and that actually didn’t fit properly. Take your time to explore the current fashion trends. See what appeals most to you and what clicks with you! Spend some time to try some outfits that you like. Take some photos and give yourself time to decide.
2. Define your niche!
There are different styles and different influences that make us who we are. Define your style by colours and different cultural influences, whether it’s minimal or boho, sexy or conservative. PINTEREST will become your best friend at this point. Creating mood boards and looking at different styles will help you explore and go deeper on what is more appealing to you and your taste.
3. Mimic the looks of people whose fashion you adore
You may wonder why you need a style icon when personal style is all about individuality.
The same way a brand might help you find your aesthetic, so can a fashionable person. Be it fictional characters like the sassy Poo from Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, the sophisticated Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl, or glamorous celebrities like Monica Bellucci and street style queen Ayesha Omar or the iconic Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the City.
You can always find and look up to your style icons for tips about fashion which you can implement into your own wardrobe.
4. Keep Your Accessory And Beauty Game In Check
Personal style goes way beyond your clothes. After all, it’s not like your personality is only concerned with one thing. You can be a fan of traditional silver jewellery and also love quirky, contemporary earrings.
Whatever it may be, no look is ever complete without a fashionable accessory. Another important factor of your personal style is your hair and makeup choices.
Are you more of a loose curls and smokey eye person or a ponytail and no-makeup look girl? Your beauty choices have leave a lasting impact on your overall style
5. Step out from your comfort zone!
It is not much easy as said, when I started to explore my style I had the urge to empty my wardrobe although I couldn’t easily step out from my comfort zone. of black legings safe dresses etc. I even panicked one day that why the heck did I buy this? Can I support this style? I was so damn scared to wear something that it wasn’t me but when I finally decided to see myself like really see myself in the mirror I felt it and the most amazing thing was also that people around me felt it even more!
As time goes on, we grow and change, physically, mentally, personality-wise, etc. So why can’t your style change, too? You never know until you try.
With this, you can start small. For example, if you tend to stick to neutral colors, try adding in a pair of black-and-white printed pants. Or if you normally like oversized and baggy lounge sets, try styling a pair of tight biker shorts instead.
