Finding your own personal style when it comes to fashion is important. Why? Well, fashion is an extension of your personality and whether you follow fashion in particular or not, it’s always to look after yourself and pamper yourself with clothing.
A well-stocked closet that you can easily pull outfits out of every day is one that will bring you a lot of joy. Whether you’re into boho clothing or something more modern in style, everyone is different – which makes us humans interesting!
Here are some useful tips to help find your own personal style in fashion this year.
Create a mood board
First and foremost, when it comes to creating your own personal style in fashion, it’s worth spending some time on a mood board. A mood board is a collection of ideas that in this case, would provide some vision of what designs or approaches you like in fashion today.
Whether that’s references to the 80s or something more current and trending, a mood board is a great way to really get some direction on where you’re looking to go with your style.
Mood boards are easy to create and can be done online or offline depending on what you find is easiest for you.
Find your styles and fit depending on your body shape
Your current style and fit might be based on a body shape that you no longer have. It’s important to remember that your body shape can change over time. So what you might consider to be an apple shape may have changed into an hourglass figure.
From hormones to dramatic shifts in weight gain or loss, this can alter your body shape and therefore what clothing types are most likely to fit you.
Dress to make yourself happy
When it comes to fashion, try to dress to make yourself happy, rather than to shop for something you feel you should wear. Happiness is important and the priority, rather than adhering to a style that’s ‘fashionable’.
Try to dress to make yourself happier, rather than dressing for anyone else. Fashion can certainly bring you a lot of joy and satisfaction when you get it right.
Invest in clothing that you’re going to wear frequently
Investing in your clothing is something to be mindful of when it comes to shopping. It’s easy to spend a small amount of money in the hopes that the clothing itself will last you. However, you’re going to benefit in the long run by choosing clothing that you’re going to wear frequently.
Shop for the long run and therefore you’ll find clothing that matches your style and personality moreso. It’ll also help the environment and the all-important climate crisis we’re experiencing.
Recognize the clothing types you dislike
Recognizing clothing that you dislike is important because not everything you try on is going to be something you like wearing. From bucket hats to Crocs, some fashion choices are not for everyone and that’s okay!
Finding your own personal style is important so use these tips to find yours in fashion this year.
