Building your personal style through fashion can be a daunting task. Knowing what works best for your individual body type, lifestyle, and personal preferences can seem an impossible task. But with a bit of research and creativity, you can realign your wardrobe to showcase the best you—while staying on trend. To get started, first take the time to do a digital and physical closet audit to determine the pieces that should stay and which should go. Make sure to keep the basics in neutral hues that look timeless and elegant and can be paired with different pieces for a unique yet wearable look. Once the basics are taken care of, it’s time to experiment with pieces that can add personality to your look and give to your basic wardrobe
Create a Closet Composed of Neutral Staples
Knowing how to build your personal style starts with basics first. Building a wardrobe with staples and basics that are neutral in color and timeless in style are the key to creating a functional and functional wardrobe. Invest in timeless pieces, such as white and black tees, denim jeans, and a great tailored blazer in a neutral hue, that will form the backbone of your wardrobe. This foundation will provide a solid start to building a look from which you can incorporate more trend pieces.
Invest in Quality Over Quantity
When building your personal style, it’s important to invest in quality over quantity. Quality pieces, made with quality materials and craftsmanship, will last longer, look fresher, and better reflect your personal style. Invest in pieces that are comfortable and one that you will want to wear over and over again.
Experiment with Key Pieces and Accessories
Now that you have the basics taken care of, it’s time to get creative by experimenting with pieces that can show off your style personality. Look into key pieces that suit your shape and color that you know will draw all eyes to you. Keep focus on cuts, hues, and fabric that you know works best and makes you feel like your best self. Don’t forget to add a few accessories, such as bags, jewelry, hats, and scarves to add depth and texture to your look.
Once you have a collection of wardrobe staples, key pieces, and accessories to start, you can begin to make outfits from the available inventory. It’s not always necessary to have 100++ options that you can build from, especially when the basics can be interchangeable and paired with different items for a similar look. One nice top can look different when paired with a different bottom and accessorized with different jewels.
Seek Inspiration and Take Chances
One of the best ways to build your personal style is to take inspiration from your favorite fashion icon. Determine what you like in the look and how you can incorporate into your own wardrobe. Take chances and don’t be afraid to make mistakes to figure out what works best for you. Soon enough, you’ll have a wardrobe that has pieces that will reflect your individual style that’s comfortable and wearable regardless of the occasion.
