your style is such an inspiration to me! what would you recommend to someone who is trying to develop their personal style? i really want to dress in a way that feels more like myself but i have no idea where to begin honestly....
Thank you, sweet thang! That makes me really happy. ♡
I must say, finding a personal style is a difficult thing to do. It takes time and there are often road blocks. But most importantly, it involves a lot of self exploration and so you have to look inward and find your true self. Learn about who you are a what you want. Ask many questions. If you want to look more like yourself, you have to know yourself!
Who are you? How do you imagine yourself to look in your head? Are there people you want to emulate? Do you wanna be girly? Tomboyish? Both? What are your favourite things? Places? Colors? Fashion Genres? Type of flora? fauna? Favourite weather? What are your hobbies? Do you want to be comfortable? Are you loUD? Or more reserved? Always ask yourself QUESTIONS.
.. .and then answer those questions with as many answers that you can think to!
Do some online / irl window shopping! Find pieces you love! When you see a piece of clothing or accessories or shoes that really make your heart sing; bookmark it. If you see something in a thriftshop or any shop that speaks to who you are, get it. You can’t have all the clothes you want right away, though, so start a rainy day shopping fund.
One thing I love to do is make Polyvore collages with pieces I found on the internet. It helps me coordinate clothing and really know what I love and how I want to wear it.
If you have any more questions, I’m always willing to answer ♡
I wish you luck on your journey of self exploration and I hope you find a style that represents who you are, so the true you can shine for the world to see ♡
“According to their survey, men hate when women wear beanies, floppy hats, hair bows, open-side shirts, oversize sweaters, shoulder pads, peplums, bandeau bikinis (“they just make your shoulders look like a linebacker”), bright lipstick, heavy eye makeup, fake nails, bangles, pointy-toed shoes, wedge sneakers, ultra-high heels, fold-over ankle boots (“it looks like the shoes have foreskins”), high-waisted jeans, high-waisted shorts, high-waisted skirts (“it lacks a certain degree of subtlety”), pantsuits (“you’re a woman, not a man”), drop-crotch pants (“really, any loose fitting pants,) and mullet dresses (“I just don’t get it — where’s the fucking party??? You are covering the back!”). The question is how to wear all of these things at once.”—How to Dress So Basic Bros Leave You Alone - The Cut (via heylabodega)
