Find YOUR Style
The best part of clothing is getting to be creative and unique and having fun! Now this is sometimes easier said than done. You can get very comfy in a black top and pair of jeans, and there’s nothing wrong with that! But if the only reason is because you’re worried about pairing outfits and trying new styles for see what suits you, let us try and help.
3 Word Method
The three word method was created by New York fashion stylist Allison Bornstein. This is a simple and easy method to identify your personal style and figure out what your IS and what you WANT it to be. So pick 3 adjectives to describe for example Bold, colourful, comfortable.
Now you’ve figured out your 3 words every time you look at new items you can see if it fits what you’re looking for. So you can look towards items like the Pamela Cardigan
Sometimes you need to see an outfit on a body, and sometimes somebody else being brave and trying an outfit you like can give you the confidence to try too, or even the validation that the combination works!
Find some of your favourite influencers or even groups like our LJ’s VIP page to find inspiration, like what to pair with a Rebecca Ruffle Polo . Then things like Pinterest are great for mapping out or exploring ideas. Even just scroll through their Instagram, and try and piece together some outfits from items you already have and replicate their way of styling.
Mood Board It
Places like Pinterest are fantastic for finding styles your love and different colour combos and laying them all out on a virtual mood board. It can be just for you, get inventive and creative put things together you enjoy but might not normally combine and just see how it looks. You might be surprised with what you find.
Step Out Your Comfort Zone
When looking at yourself and your own personal style, you have got to remember, it’s meant to be fun! Clothes are such a big part of your life and you might not even realise it, you have to wear them every day (or get some funny looks), enjoy creating your ensemble.
Even if you try something you don’t like, it’s ok! It’s not permanent and now you’re a little closer to knowing what you DO like.
You can start of small, if you always wear neutral colours, add a patterned scarf. If you wear a lot of black, add a bright coloured top. You can add gradually and piece things together.
And it doesn’t have to cost a fortune, figure out what’s in your wardrobe, start with what are your base items so trusty pair of leggings or jeans, a jacket that goes with most your day looks then where can you add in those pops of your uniqueness and your style and end with a wardrobe you’re proud to own.
