Finding your personal style- something we all want to do with our wardrobes, especially when new seasons start and we may be purging my closet a bit. My style is a mix – as I think most women’s styles are, and I tend to gravitate toward a romantic and classic style.
When you look at your closet, what do you see? Are you a lady who enjoys bold prints, or are you one that typically sticks with solid colors?
Do you wear more neutrals, or do you love color?
What do you want your style to SAY about YOU?
These are just a few of the first basic questions you can ask when assessing your style.
Your personal style is certainly one that expresses your personality, creativity and how you live your life. (Lifestyle)
A mix of styles you like is more than likely, but many ladies will gravitate toward a certain style.
Think about what you feel most confident in , or what assets you have. Do you like to show off your legs? Does your style accentuate that?
If you haven’t used Pinterest, it is a great tool in getting to know what you like, and what you want out of your wardrobe/style.
Look at pictures, celebrities, other midlife ladies, and pin the ones that catch your eye. Ask yourself, why do you like this look? Do you have pieces like it in your closet?
You can use these tools to add to your idea of what your own personal style is. If you find a celebrity look you like, you don’t have to copy it piece for piece but rather (to coin an American Idol phrase), “Make it your own.”
Take pictures wearing some of the outfits in your closet that feel like “you”, describe them, and why you think they are your style.
Some people enjoy making visual boards., either on the computer ( like Pinterest) or actually cutting pictures out of magazines to make a “style collage”.
These are just some questions and Ideas to get you started, if you need to think about your “Personal style” a bit more in 2022.
Here are some of my traits with my own style-to give you an example.
- love eye catching florals
- blazers – plaid, solid, double breasted, single buttoned to amplify a look.
- I am a moto jacket kind of gal in various colors.
- My color pallete is “Autumn” so I love clothes with a warm palette that works with my skin tone and hair.
- Dress girl-. Lately I have been preferring midi dresses, as they are most flattering with my tall stature.
- I love gold jewelry and vintage pieces.
These are just a few examples to show you how I begin to look at my personal style. My style has evolved over the years, and that is what makes it so interesting
In today’s outfit, I am wearing one of my favorite romantics rose floral dresses, in pine green. The pine green certainly can transition to Fall and Winter, and instead of wearing a sweater over it (which you could do) I chose this rose-pink moto jacket. The robust burgundy leather hobo bag compliments the pink and are tones found in the dress. I wore drop earrings, and my boots are neutral tone to balance the look.
What is your personal style? Have you thought about it recently?
Let me hear from you in the comments. I love to!
