From hot hairstyles to clothing trends, we never fail to stay updated on the latest fashion pulse. But while it’s fun to stay updated with all things fresh and new, fashion isn’t just about following the trends – it’s about expressing yourself through your clothing, and the best way to do it is to develop your personal style using the following tips.

  1. Look for Inspiration. One of the simplest ways to create and develop your personal style is to jot down the names of your favourite fashion icons and do some research on Google, Instagram and Pinterest. You can also create a list of your favourite styles and write the elements that they have in common. Pulling in different inspiration from various sources is a great way to figure out what you like and dislike.

 

  1. Clean Up Your Closet. Take a good look at your closet and the pieces that you own, then toss out the ones that you haven’t worn in the past years. If you want, you can sell those pieces and use the money that you’ll earn to buy quality clothing pieces and fill your closet with spot-on clothes.

 

  1. Consider Your Lifestyle. A wardrobe shouldn’t just represent your creativity and personality, it should also be tailored based on your lifestyle and the field of work that you’re in. Add some sharp and professional pieces if you’re in the business industry, some on-trend pieces if you’re planning to work in fashion, and purchase more jeans and knits if you’re working on a more casual environment.

  1. Accessorize. Wearing the right accessories is the easiest way to pull any look together. Update your white-shirt-and-jeans look using a bold necklace, or give your dress a more feminine feel by wearing delicate jewelleries. Learn to explore the accessories that you have on hand so that you can achieve the look that you want without spending too much.

 

  1. Be Authentic. The most important thing in developing your style is to stay true to yourself. Don’t focus on the designer label or the size. Instead, continue experimenting with different textures, patterns, shoes and accessories until you find the style that you feel comfortable with.

Refining your personal style all boils down to feeling confident in your own skin. So be proud of your own style and see fashion as a way to express who you are and who you want to be.
