Tips to Help You Determine Your Personal Style

Assess your closet

Take a look at what you wear on a daily basis and take note of all the clothes you have already purchased for yourself. This way, you will understand the different patterns of your buying behavior. For example, do you wear any color more often than others, are you a skirt-and-dress type of person, do you wear certain fabrics? These are just a few of the questions you need to answer.

Pull out your favorite clothes

Pick out the clothes that you wear the most or an outfit that you would never want to part with.There is always that comfort piece you always want to bring along with you when travelling or that which you will never include in a garage sale.

Look at your chosen outfit and ask yourself why you love it

Do you find these outfits comfortable; do they make you feel confident? Think about how you feel each time you wear them and if there is a common denominator among your favorites then it can help you determine your own personality.

Do you wear your clothes to impress others or to feel good while you are wearing them?

You want to know if you are leaning more towards fashion over comfort or if you would rather be comfortableor, even better, both.

Are these outfits appropriate for your daily activities?

It is best to keep in mind what you do on a daily basis. Are you a worker or a student? You want to find clothes that can be used for these particular settings instead of looking for clothes that are impractical to your lifestyle. If you gravitate towards dresses or jeans but you have to wear a business suit to work, try to take a bit of your style with you to work. You can add a colorful scarf or a bag to your ensemble. You might not be wearing dresses or jeans, but you will have a more unique look that can express your personality.

Look for references

You can browse through different fashion magazines or even look online for different outfits that you might find appealing. That way, you can simply cut out the images, print them or take a picture with your phone so that you can keep them with you when you look around and shop. You can even separate each outfit and put them in different categories such as casual, formal, etc.

Experiment with different clothes

Try on everything you see. It might be something that looks great on a mannequin but might not suit you at all. It is also possiblethat something you would never think you would wear might end up becoming your favorite piece.

Trust your instincts

When you are developing or getting to know your style, it is important to be true to yourself. You should not have to simply focus on the size or the designer label you are purchasing. Instead, find something that looks appealing to you and that you are comfortable in it. Continue to feel good in your own skin and believe in your own individuality.

Be creative

There are so many textures, patterns, and colors to choose from. Continue to experiment and do not be afraid to try something fun and new.
