The fun in making your personal signature style is not about wearing anything under the sun. Fashion is not just about showing off the trendy dress, accessories, or shoes. I couldn’t agree more when you say that fashion is about feeling good when you’re looking good. But, fashion goes way beyond good looks. It can transcend your own character by empowering and giving yourself the confidence for every day. That is why it is best to know how to create your own signature look that could inspire a confident you.
KNOW YOUR SIGNATURE
Every one of us has his/her own preference when it comes to the way we dress up. It might be rooted from your own daily lifestyle, how you identify yourself, or simply just a personal preference. In creating your personal style, know what pieces suits your taste. Some may prefer wearing cardigans, skirts, or cargo. Others may want a bold or fabulous vibe, while there are those who want a cool and easy-going style. You can check out celebrity get-ups that you fancy over the internet or from magazines. Try putting up an ensemble that suits your preference and shows who you are.
KNOW YOUR BODY
Sometimes, no matter how beautiful an outfit is, it just seems that you don’t fit quite as nice as it looks. There are just those pieces that look better on you and some just don’t. The trick here is to know your own body! If you know the proportions of your own body, then you’ll know the fashion pieces that will show and highlight your best assets.
KNOW YOUR WARDROBE
Open your wardrobe and check out the pieces that fit in the signature you’re recreating. These can serve as your go-to outfits that will always look good on you. Trust the distinct style you want and stick with it. If you have other clothes that might still be used, keep them! Those could still be used for layering (your scissors might be handy too for alterations if you’d like).
KNOW YOUR COLORS
Working with a nice blend of colors is another factor you should consider when formulating that signature look. You’re not a mannequin that displays the beauty of the outfit. The color combination of your ensemble should work together with your skin tone and the color of your hair and eyes to create a cohesion to your signature. As an advice, if you have a warm and dark skin tone and brown to dark-blond hair, try lighter shades such as lavender, turquoise, or coral pink. Brighter shades like royal blue, emerald green, and scarlet, will be more flattering for those with pale skin and dark or blond hair. Work with these colors for your dress, accessories, nail color, and makeup.
