Discovering your style..

I think a lot of us have had the struggle of trying to figure out what our personal style is. It's easier for some than others but we all get there eventually, I can definitely say that I've finally discovered what my style is and I'd like to share with you just a couple tips on how you can discover your own personal style. A friend of mine actually inspired me to write this post, we were talking about discovering your own style and who's the inspiration behind the way we dress.I figured why not turn this into an actual post for anyone out there who feels they haven't discovered their own personal style yet.

For so long I spent time trying to dress/look like others, I didn't know who I was and that showed all the way through the way I dressed. I guess its easier to look at someone else's style and think that same style will suit you but that's not always the case. It's called personal style for a reason guys, to me, personal style means dressing in a way that kinda shows a bit about your personality. 

Who are your fashion inspirations?

I know not everyone cares about fashion but for those who do, you need to look at who are your fashion inspirations. Who do you look at and think "I love their style", once you find those people you'll start to notice a pattern of the kind of style you like. For example, my fashion inspirations dress quite casual but they know how to turn a simple outfit into something stunning. If you want to see in more detail of what I mean then please have a look at a previous post I did titled "My top fashion blogger inspirations". After noticing a pattern of the type of fashion bloggers I was following and simply looking at the way I dress, I realized that my style is simple, classy with an edge and I believe that this ties in with my personality. 

Look at your current personal style

Let's forget about being inspired by others on how to dress for now.. what does your style look like when you've put an outfit together without any inspiration behind it all? For example, from a young age I've always been a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl, that's where the simplicity of my style comes in and over the years I've learned how to develop that simple look into something.. a little more interesting. You might find that there is a certain way you've always dressed and that will be at the foundation of your personal style.

Be yourself

One of the biggest cliches of all but it's true, at the end of the day, you've got to be yourself, not with just fashion but in anything. Don't look at how someone else dresses and think I need to copy them, no. They're purely there to inspire you, make that outfit more personal and true to your own style. I believe that once you know who you are as a person, everything else falls into place and you start to become your best self because of that inner confidence. Fashion is something I truly have a passion for and I believe you can see someones confidence through the way they dress.

So, what kind of style are you into? Leave a comment below :)
