This week I'm writing a bit about developing your "personal style" and use today's outfit as my example. I've been getting quite a few comments lately about how people enjoy my looks because they are stylish but very relatable. So I'm hoping my words can help my readers who might need a little boost of confidence in their personal style!
Except when breaking in an amazing pair of shoes... That's my only exception.
For me, this means that I am immediately drawn to knits. Wearable fabrics that feel good on my body is number one. Even better that items made of jersey knit are more commonly worn in more formal ways. For example, the diy pencil skirt in my last post, t-shirts under a fitted blazer, or dresses like this one that are appropriate for work.
I wouldn't necessarily call myself a modest dresser. If you know me, you probably see me sporting sheer t-shirts all the time. But I'm also not one to advertently flaunt certain parts of my body either.
Anyways, it's important to know your shape and find a style that you like and are comfortable in. For me, this is that. Scroll through my outfit posts and you'll see patterns. Once you find pieces and shapes that you like, build on that. Find pieces with similar shapes in different fabrics, colors etc. It makes it easy to put together an outfit that you know for sure looks good on you!
Now, your priorities might be different than mine; but it's safe to say that everyone wants to feel comfortable in the clothes that they wear. This is how I approach that. Once you find an outfit that works for you, capitalize on that outfit to build your style and your closet. Here I've mixed it up with fabrics, color and print.
Let me know what you think about creating your personal style. What's most important to you?
