How to Define your own Personal Style

Personal Style is difficult to achieve at the best of times. Besides the fact that it's forever evolving, you appreciate multiple different styles, which gushes the question, which one truly speaks to you?
I myself feel like I am coming into my own with the fact that I accept multiple different styles and love to experiment all the time. But however with having experimented, I found myself knowing what not to go for. At times I feel like going for a more girly, feminine, elegant and classy look but I also love to go edgy! 

If you want to find your own personal style here are a few steps to get you there, in order for you to feel comfortable and the most fabulous self you can be.   


What I find helps me the most is social media accounts that I admire, the most favorable being Instagram. Take a look at the accounts you follow and observe what best describes the looks you are looking at, are they Girly? or Modern with an edgy vibe? There are so many styles you can notice but narrow it down to a few key words, this way you can take a mental note or write down all of the things you like and feel able to carry out with your very own personal style.  


You don't have to be a professional blogger to be able to take notes of what's out there and what catches your eye. If you see something online whilst "online window shopping" save it and put it into a folder specifically for style inspiration and soon you will find that with a collection of images you can see how visible your style appears to be. 

Another thing I do is have a scrapbook of pictures of outfits I have put together, outfits I was particularly proud of and loved. It's the perfect diary that you can look back on if you find yourself stuck with picking out an outfit (I personally use InstragramPinterest and the blog as a form of that).


Take note of your figure and identify if you are an hourglass, sporty or curvy frame. There are many forums that show what works best for your figure, wear the clothes that show your best assets, something that makes you confident and stylish. Also take a mental note of what people compliment you on.


From time to time I like to re organize my wardrobe and clear out what I no longer use, you would be surprised at the amount of things you have grown out of love for. One thing I notice whilst doing this activity is finding an item that I had purchased thinking I'd wear it and never really made use of it. These are the items you can tick off your list of things to buy in future, as you now know you won't ever use them.


Blazer - Bershka
Skinny Jeans - Primark
Handbag - Primark
Sunglasses - Accessorize 


One thing I stick by is to trust my instincts, it's been proven over the years that when I've trusted my instincts I've felt more accomplished in the outcomes that come out of the decision I've made. So my advice to you is if you feel like you are a feminine more girly girl then stick to it, because if you opt for a edgy more sporty vibe you won't feel like your best self, somewhat unnatural and uncomfortable. If you believe in your own style and feel good in it, you can carry it off a lot better than trying to fit into another category. 

Have you discovered your personal style yet?
