Finding Your Fashion Style

 

Finding your personal style can be a challenge, especially when you aren’t much of a fashion expert to begin with. However it can be a really fun task to see what you find, and you could end up discovering a style which you never thought you would wear. Here are some tips on finding your personal style this year…

 

1.Know your body

The first step to being able to choose the perfect clothes for you is to know your body shape and what styles suit you. If you are curvy, wrap style dresses and bodysuits with halter necks are a great way to accentuate the bust and make the waist look smaller. If you are a more athletic build you can opt for bell sleeves and peplum style to make your body seem like it is curvier than it is. 

2. Find signature pieces


If you look online at sites such as The Iconic, you will be able to find those few signature items which set you apart from everyone else on the street. You will need to find those items which scream at you and that you wear along with everything. It could be a piece of jewelry, a pair of shoes or even a bag which becomes an identifier of you.

3. Think of fashion as an investment

The last thing you want to be doing is spending tons of money on clothes which you are only ever going to wear once. To find your unique style you need to start thinking of your clothing like an investment. Spend your money on a few items which you know that you can rewear in different ways. For example, you can never go wrong with a white blouse or a pair of skinny jeans. They can be worn with lots of different outfits and they will add to your personal sense of style overall.

 

4. Create a mood board

Think about the colors and styles which go together, and then compile them into one place so that you can see what kind of clothes you want to be looking out for on your shopping trips. The key to finding your fashion style is sticking to your style and simple embellishing it in different ways when needed. Many people these days are making the most of monochrome and simple accessorizing with color.

5. Know what to avoid

There will always be certain styles and colors which you don’t like to wear or which you believe don’t suit your skin tone. For example, redheads tend to stay away from yellow and orange because it can clash and make them look a little ill. You might hate the thought of baggy tops if you have a larger chest because it makes you look bigger. Try things on in the store to make sure that you are making the right choices. Knowing what clothes don’t suit you can help you narrow your searches and avoid making a huge fashion faux pas.

20 thoughts on “Finding Your Fashion Style

  1. These sound like some great ideas! I’m really not into fashion, so I basically live in jeans and t-shirts. I switch to sweaters when it’s cold out. I rarely spend more than $50 on a piece because I love to save. I’m sure I make tons of faux passes, but I’m okay with that. I’m all about comfort. My daughter will probably be more into fashion than I am.

  2. I think I could use someone like you in my life. I honestly have no idea what my body style is and I have not been big on fashion but there are times I wish I was because I would like to be able to dress up.

  3. I did a huge closet clear out last year and I think I finally nailed my style. Now I’m in the process of buying investment pieces that will last me so time and stealing from my mom’s closet. lol

  4. These are all such great tips. I am frustrated with my clothes right now. I own a ton of dresses but hate wearing them in the cold weather.

  5. I’m kinda stuck in the yoga pants and tee phase. I gained so much weight when I had my kids and I just haven’t felt comfortable buying clothes. Now that I’m losing weight, I look forward to a new wardrobe!

  6. These are some great tips! I often struggle with fashion, but I think I’ll need to start being a bit more adventurous.

  7. These are all great pieces of advice. I can totally relate to the first tip – know your body. I remember my high school teacher giving us advice on how to look your best in any attire. She said, “Flaunt what you have, and hide the rest.” 🙂
