Identifying, knowing and sticking to one's personal style can be a challenge especially now, when everything is all about trends. However, taking on that challenge will earn you a sustainable and eternal style. It will also save you from becoming a merchandise for marketers who are always giving unsolicited advice about what you should and shouldn't wear. like chanel says "fashion fades but style is eternal". Dont get me twisted, I'm not saying incorporating some trends you like into your personal style is bad, all i'm saying is that being aware of what your personal style is, before deciding on which trend to incorporate in your wardrobe will give you control not only over your style, but also your Economy. Knowing your personal style is also the secret behind building an efficient wardrobe, that will quicken your dress-up routines and most importantly less unnecessary buys.
Building a wardrobe like that takes a bit of creative research, grab a pen and a paper for notes on how to go about finding and knowing your personal style.
Step 1: Take a look at your current wardrobe, note down your favourites (pieces you mostly reach out for), motivate (explain in details) why they are your favourites etc. After doing this step, you will be left with a big list full of details that embody what you love, like and dislike, which will give you a Picture of your personal style.
Step 2: look outside the box, for example your favourite blogs, online shops and Magazines for more inspiration. Save the pieces that appeal to you, when thats done, ask yourself, what and why you like the piece, then note it down.
Step 3: Now go over your notes again and cross out anything that doesnt appeal or seem important to you anymore.
If you carry these steps out as described, you should be left with a manual for your personal style. This manual will guide you when decluttering your wardrobe and when shopping for new items.
