When it comes to appearance, we all want to be seen in a certain way.
And it doesn’t help considering how the world of style and fashion is so diverse and ever changing. It has evolved from cultural styles to contemporary trends we see today and who knows what the future holds?
Depending on our influences and preferences, fashion has become more personal than ever, where people prefer to add their own touch to their style. If you are looking to figure out your personal style, here are some amazing tips than can guide you on your journey.
1. Do some research
The first step to finding your personal style is identifying your preferences. You need to know your body type, size, colors as well as what would suit your lifestyle. Be careful not to fall into the marketing gimmicks of top fashion brands who will convince you otherwise when trying to find what works for you. It is easy to get lost and overwhelmed because new fashion comes up every day. A way to handle this is zeroing in on a few pieces as you go on. Decide what matters most for you-functionality, comfort or making a statement.
If you’re cash strapped, then consider going through your wardrobe and you’ll be surprised at what you find. This should give you a good base to start on as you find your personal style.
2. Explore your creativity

Be not afraid of change. In order to find your personal style, you must be ready to try new things. You will need to move out of your comfort zone and explore styles you have never tried before. Look into classic wear if you have only been focused on contemporary wear and switch up your wardrobe before you settle on what works for you. Remember that fashion is about self-expression so don’t be afraid to explore different territories. All you have to do is tweak it to your preference.
3. Build your confidence
An important aspect of personal style is self-confidence. Without self-confidence, you won’t be able to find yourself and define your own style when it comes to fashion. Confidence will help you take in positive criticism as you progress on your journey. It will also help you to be firm in who you are in this age of fast fashion and mainstream trends. Find ways to boost your esteem and confidence which goes hand in hand with personal style. No one can curve your personal style path but you.
4. Document your journey
Since the world of fashion is diverse, you should keep a record of photos and notes that you pick up along the way. Take note of the brands, colors or styles that have appealed to you. Go deeper and find out why certain styles make you tick and those that don’t. This will definitely give you more clarity and prevent you from being overwhelmed in the process.
5. Enjoy the process
Finding your personal style is not a process that happens overnight. It will take many trials and errors as you narrow down what works best. Also, you are allowed to have more than one personal style as times change. You don’t necessarily have to limit yourself to one thing for the rest of your life. You are a dynamic entity that changes over time so your style will most likely evolve in the process. Remember to take your time and have fun on your journey to personal style.
