Although it’s fine to follow fads when it comes to fashion and whatnots, it is always better to develop one’s own style. Not only will it help make shopping easier by knowing what you want, but it also gives you a sense of self – an identity, if you will.
The first thing you do is to examine your own wardrobe. Look closely at your clothes. Segregate them. Which are the ones you wear often? Which are the ones that you don’t really like? Now ask yourself why you like the ones you do and why don’t you find the others unappealing. List down your thoughts if you wish. The answers will help you find out what your true preferences are.
The next step is to find out what looks good on you. You can find out more information on which cut, color, material, and style best suit your particular body type. You can modify your tastes accordingly.
You can also go through magazines, fashion sites, and catalogs. You may cut the pictures of the stuff that you like. You don’t have to copy the exact look. What you can do is to modify a particular style so that it would fit your own. You can do this by accessorizing – earrings, necklaces, shoes, scarves, shawls, etc. help create a more individualized look. Don’t be afraid to experiment.
Wear your clothes confidently. If you are comfortable with what you’re wearing and you know that you look good in them, then by all means add some attitude. It’s all part of you. Don’t be ashamed of who you are.
