Reveal Your Personal Style

Personal style is not what’s hot on the cover of your magazines or what everyone else is wearing. In the words of Gore Vidal, “style is knowing who you are, what you want to say and not giving a damn.” Your personal style may also change over time. You probably don’t wear the same style you did 10 or even 5 years ago. To reveal your personal style, create a real or digital inspirational board. If you opt for a real board, grab some markers, scissors and magazines. For a digital board, Pinterest is the place to find tons of fashion inspiration.

Likes and Dislikes: Grab a piece of paper and write down all your style likes and dislikes. For example: Likes – beading, metallic, floral, colorblocking, etc. Dislikes – frills, leather, anything orange.

Graphics: Flip through your magazines or search online to find clothing that you like. Cut out the magazine pictures or save the digital pictures to use on your style inspiration board.

Style Personality: Your clothing can reflect how others perceive you. Write a list of words that relate to you and that you want others to relate to you. For example: stylish, creative, polished, bold, feminine, professional, successful, warm, elegant, etc.

Garments: Head to your closet to find inspiration from your own wardrobe. Write down all the reasons that you love certain items, such as the fabric, shape, color or feel. Also consider how you feel when you’re wearing it, such as smart, slim or fashionable.

Putting It All Together: Match the words that you’ve written to the graphics you’ve found of your favorite clothing styles. Now you’ve determined your personal style and you can successfully match your clothing to your personality.
