Personal style is a reflection of who you are, and it should be as unique as you are. Your style should embrace your individuality and make you feel confident and comfortable. It can be challenging to embrace a unique style that sets you apart from the crowd. However in a world where fashion trends come and go, how can you create a distinctive and enduring style that truly represents you?
Start by embracing who you are
To create a unique style, you must know yourself first. What are your likes, dislikes, values, and personality traits? Your style should be an extension of your personality, so it is essential to identify what you want to express with your fashion choices. Understanding your unique traits and characteristics will help you create a style that reflects who you are.
Find inspiration everywhere
Your style inspiration can come from anywhere: friends, family, colleagues, movies or series, music, and even the past. It can even be a combination of what you have seen on different people. Remember, you want your own unique style that sets you apart, so it’s equally important to limit the noise from influencers and the rest of the ‘fashion world’. Look for styles and aesthetics that resonate with you, and incorporate elements of them into your wardrobe. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different colors, patterns, and textures, and try out different combinations until you find the ones that work for you.
Creating a unique style requires taking risks. Don’t be afraid to try something new or wear something that makes a statement, as long as it makes you feel good about yourself. A bold accessory or a quirky piece of clothing can set you apart and add personality to your look. You may not always find styles that resonate with you in the shops, so consider scouring social media, visit markets and online shops to find designers, crafters or tailors that can successfully create your vision.
Focus on fit
The fit of your clothes is crucial to creating a unique style. I have created my style based on fit. I liked how certain clothes fitted me and noticed compliments whenever I wore certain styles. Take the time to find clothes that fit well and flatter your body type. If you can’t find clothes that fit you they way you envisioned, consider finding a good tailor or dressmaker.
Accessorise or not
Accessories are a great way to showcase your individuality. From jewellery to hats, shoes and scarves, accessories can add a unique touch to any outfit. Choose items that reflect your personality and complement your personal style. Not accessorising is also a unique style in itself, while making a bold statement with clothes instead!
Make it sustainable
Sustainability is an essential aspect of creating a unique style. Instead of buying new clothes every season, invest in high-quality, timeless pieces that you can wear for years and reduce your environmental impact.These pieces should be versatile and easy to mix and match with other items in your wardrobe. Quality pieces will also ensure that you look and feel great every time you wear them.
Confidence is key
Confidence is the key to making any outfit look stylish and chic. When you feel good in what you wear, it shows, and people will take notice. Embrace your individuality and be proud of who you are. Remember that fashion is not about following trends but about expressing yourself in a way that feels authentic to you. Confidence is the key to making any outfit look stylish and chic.
A final note
Developing a unique style that sets you apart is about knowing yourself, finding inspiration, taking risks, focusing on fit, making it sustainable, and adding confidence to the mix. You can create a wardrobe that reflects your personality and makes you feel confident and authentic by considering these elements. Use them as a guide to help you cultivate your own unique look, and most importantly, have fun with it!
