How to define your personal style this year
How to define your personal style this year. One of the most common questions I get asked here, on my Instagram, and my Youtube channel is how I know what to wear. Fashion has always come easily to me. That’s a big part of why I have this blog; to help others define their style.
In my opinion, it all begins with what you are drawn to. When you look at photos on Pinterest, social media, or magazines take into account what draws you in. I truly love something when I have this gasping moment. Sometimes a dress or pair of shoes just takes my breath away. When that happens I know that it’s meant to be mine. Unless of course, it’s couture and far out of reach.
I think that creating a Pinterest board can help you navigate what style you like. Type into the search bar something generic such as “fashion” or something more specific such as “spring dress.” When you see something that you like pin it to a board. This helps compartmentalize fashion and can be used as a resource when shopping.
Define your personal style this year
Figure out what shape your body is (apple, pear, etc) and google ideas of what compliments your body shape. It’s also helpful to find fashion bloggers who are a similar size. A blogger will recommend items that look good on them which in return will look good on you.
If you are completely lost then I would try a personal shopper. Many stores such as Nordstrom offer personal shoppers at no extra cost to you. The personal shopper will spend time with you and curate looks based on your body type, price preference, and any other accommodations you may have.
If you don’t have a Nordstrom in your area then consider a fashion subscription box. I LOVE Trunk Club! Every month I use it for fun. The company is run by Nordstrom and pairs you with your very own personal stylist via the internet. It is extremely convenient and easy to do. I have a video explaining how it works here.
I hope that my tips helped! I linked my outfit in the description below!
