Girls just want to have fun. Looking incredible, dream catching and champagne poppin' are ingrained in our DNA.
Building on the fun theme, as you shape your wardrobe with a little intention, getting dressed will become so much fun. Whether preparing to take on the city on a hot date or bossing up for a business meeting what's not to love about having a closet decked in pieces you adore? Imagine getting dressed in a fraction of the time, and consistently looking fly- that's a double winner!
Falling in love, at first sight, as you come eye to eye with that 'must-have' new fall piece for the very first time will always be thrilling. Flipping through Vogue's Fashion spreads and getting lost in an NYFW marathon will continue to give you butterflies, but there's something as endearing about curating a collection of your own pieces that both inspire and celebrate you.
One of the beauties of defining your personal style is that it keeps you mindful of the looks you adore. Imagine developing a wardrobe you're so smitten by you no longer have to face the dreaded 'but...I have nothing to wear' saga. That alone is worth its weight in gold.
We should all be motivated to feel and look our best as possible. Feeling great takes a lifelong commitment, and likely, you're a work in progress. Aren't we all? On the other hand, looking lovely is much simpler. Plus with each time you pull it off, it comes with a shot of 'confidence booster' straight up.
Personal style and your take on fashion are likely ambiguous at best. Fashion trends evolve so quickly it can be overwhelming to keep to. The beauty of style is that trends shouldn't define your personal creative expression. Luckily the best style is rooted in originality and confidence.
No matter where you on the journey of expressing your personal style, nailing down your signature looks will lead you to tap into your most fashionable self.
First, consider what cuts, colors, fabrics, suit your vibe? Are your fashion fairies more of a Beyonce, Gigi Hadid, Meghan Markle, Kylie Jenner, Rihanna, Blake Lively, or Cardi B? Or, are you the style baby of Michelle O'Bama and Billy Porter?
You have an idea of the looks that bring joy to your heart and flatter your body hone in on them.
Is your baseline style is modern, Jackie O-esque, classic, artsy, bohemian, sexy, eclectic, sophisticated or mix of them all? What words best sums up your style essence? What about those looks and words speak to you?
Finally, reflect back on your personal year in fashion. Which outfits, looks, and cuts made you feel the happiest and most confident? What looks snagged the most compliments? BOOM- you're on to something lady! The key to defining your style is the awareness to shape a wardrobe around pieces that make you feel like a million bucks. Consequently, and less of I'll grab these 'just because I'm bored or they're on sale' culprits.
Channel Jackie O, Lena Horne, and Audrey Hepburn. Jackie's 'slayed' her signature oversized sunglasses. Lena's stunted in her go-to one-shoulder dresses, while Audrey became synonymous with 20th Century Hollywood glam. What's your signature flow? Dare to choose a signature piece or two you absolutely love and style it in as many ways as your creativity allows.
Can't narrow it down? Hit up your closet and notice what pieces show up over and over again. They are your 'ride or dies,' your style go-to's, and fashion sweet spots.
