Steps For Finding Your Style in Clothing

So you want to find your style? Good for you, it’s the first step to looking great. But what is style?


Style is knowing who you are, what you want to say, and not giving a damn” – Orson Welles

Let me explain this quote. It is common today for men (and women too!) to just wear whatever they can get their hands on. They let others dictate their fashion sense by reading magazines or watching television shows that tell them how to dress. This isn’t about trends or fads; its about finding out who YOU are and expressing it with what you WEAR! What do I mean by this? Just because something looks good on someone else might not necessarily look good on you. Just because you like the way something looks doesn’t mean it will help your personal style grow.

Opinions for Finding Your Style

Everyone has an opinion of what they like or don’t like but its not always right for YOU! And thats the point; to dress in a way that makes YOU happy, comfortable, and confident. I’m guessing if you’re reading this article you are tired of looking around at all your friends clothes and thinking “This might look good on him/her but probably wouldn’t look good on me” – well then continue reading!

1st Step

The first step is to find out what type of clothing fits your lifestyle . What do I mean by this? Well most people today just buy clothes they see featured in magazines or fashion shows they see online – but there are many people who are unaware that the life they are living does not have to be represented by something they wear. For instance, being a stay at home mom has nothing to do with dressing up in heels and short skirts – not saying this wouldn’t look great, but what I am trying to say is that your style should best represent YOUR lifestyle and not someone else’s.

2nd Step

The next step in finding out your style is by knowing yourself . You need to know what you like and don’t like when it comes to clothing. If you’re the type of person who would rather be in jeans and a T-shirt than anything else – make sure when shopping for clothes this information is always taken into consideration! Your personal style needs to be something that will make you feel great when you wear it – and something that is a good representation of who you are.

Final Step

The final step in finding out your style is knowing what looks best on your physique . If you’re the tallest or shortest person in your group of friends, chances are you need to pay more attention to how certain clothes fit on different body types. In addition, think about what colors look best against your skin . It’s always fun shopping for new things, but it can get frustrating if all the pretty things in the store happen to remind you too much of your cousin! Make sure when picking clothing items for yourself, reflect upon what type of outfit would look great with your complexion and height.

Figure it Out

Once you have figured out what sort of beauty will flatter your features , it’s time to get specific about the clothes themselves. The first step is choosing a color scheme . There are endless combinations you can create, so don’t be afraid to experiment and see what works for you! You can also think about how much skin should be exposed in each piece of clothing and whether or not certain types of tops and bottoms match up well with one another.

The next step is picking out accents such as jewelry, hats, scarves or even belts that complement your other pieces. Once again, feel free to mix ‘n’ match these items because if it looks good together – then there’s no such thing as too many accessories!
