Ever wished your personal fashion style was more defined?
Do you often wish you knew how to create a more personal signature style? Maybe you’ve given up on wearing jewelry and accessories and just get by with a little makeup, feeling like learning how to create a personal style you love takes too much time and too much money.
You’re not the only one who’s been there.
I once felt lost and confused about my personal style. As a result, I resorted to buying and wearing a lot of black.
The fashion experts teach that every woman should wear black and I bought in to that—hook, line and sinker! I believed it so much that at one point, nearly every skirt and pair of nicer pants I owned were black!
I know now why I bought so much black. When you don’t know what else to wear, black seems like an easy solution. Besides, I believed it made me look thinner. But I now know that it only makes me look older!
Would you believe me if I told you that I don’t have one article of black clothing in my wardrobe? You may be shocked, and think, I could never give up my black, I look good in it, it’s part of my personal style. Depending on your Beauty Profile, black might actually make you look old or washed out.
What Dressing My Truth has taught me is that for me, black was absolutely the worst color I could be putting on my body. Now that I know my Beauty Profile and the colors, design lines, textures, and patterns that look best on me, it is SO EASY AND FUN to create my personal style. I have so many options that are perfect for me and I love them all!
The truth behind your personal style
The fashion and beauty industry tells you to copy someone else’s style. A designer decides what’s fashionable for the next three months. And regardless of your shape, your size, your preference, or your type of beauty, you’re supposed to run out and buy that style.
When certain trends don’t look as good on you as they do on air-brushed magazine pages, you somehow blame yourself.
Instead of copying someone else’s style, you can own and experience a personal style that works for you, makes you look and feel beautiful, and never goes out of fashion. Do you feel like you’re there yet?
Are You Lost, Getting by, or Confident?
When You’re LOST or GETTING BY with your personal style, you tend to feel frustrated by or fed up with the constant change in trends. You might feel like you’ve figured out what’s in style when the rules change again. You might copy some trends, but they never look as good or feel as comfortable on you as you would like them to. You feel like you can’t or don’t want to keep up with the constant change in styles.
You may resort to owning and wearing a lot of black clothes (like I did!) and feel it’s easier to wear black than figure out how to put together a style that is all you. Putting together “outfits” with jewelry and other accessories seems too hard and too costly, so you just get by with a few simple pieces. You want to look and feel beautiful, but you get discouraged because the fashion system is hard to figure out. Fashion requires so much work, money, and time when you don’t know how to buy what is perfect for you.
When you’re CONFIDENT with your personal style, you feel effortlessly fashionable. You express a personal style that’s always in fashion and that always looks good on you. Your wardrobe is cohesive and expresses the true you. You know how to assemble the right clothes, jewelry, shoes, handbags, makeup and hairstyle that flatter your body and express your unique type of beauty. You only incorporate current trends into your look when they really work for YOU. And because you know what is perfect for you, you save time and money because you always find what you want (on sale or at bargain prices) and just move past the rest!
Tips to start experiencing personal style confidence
- Pick out three items from your closet that you absolutely love and that make you look great.
Figure out what those items have in common. What do you love about them? What elements do they share? Try wearing more clothes and accessories that share these qualities.
- Pick out three more items from your closet—this time, items you rarely or never wear.
Identify their common features. Do you avoid them because of the way they feel on your body? Do you not like their texture or color?
- Pay attention to the qualities you’ve identified the next time you get dressed or go shopping.
Choose clothes and accessories with the traits you enjoy. Your beauty sixth sense can help you choose what fits into your unique personal style and what doesn’t. Start listening to it more carefully.
