How to Determine Your Own Personal Style...

How to Determine Your Own Personal Style...

We all have a personal style, whether we know it or not. Some of us are girly, others are edgy. Knowing your personal style can save you a lot of money in the long run because you have a vision for the items you want to purchase. Before I knew my personal style, I had a bad case of "thrifters itch" where I picked up anything and everything I deemed cute. This made my closet cluttered and my wallet empty! Not an ideal situation!


Figuring out what your personal style is doesn't have to be difficult. Here are a few of my tips for finding your personal style.

Think About Who Inspires You

Think about what ladies, celebrities, and public figures inspire you. Maybe you admire Princess Kate's simple, elegant style or maybe you are a fan of Taylor Swift's girly ensembles. Chances are what looks you are obsessed with is the type of style that should be in your closet.


Make A Vision Board

Making a vision board gives you a visual reminder of your style. It's something you can easily refer back to before shopping. My vision board is Pinterest. I browse through the "Women's Style" section and pin anything that catches my eye. If you aren't sure what to call your style, refer back to this board! I found that my style was more classic, judging by the pieces that I had pinned.

Step Out Of Your Comfort Zone

If you see a certain trend that catches your eye, go for it! It just might end up being a part of your personal style. A good way to ease yourself into a trend is to buy an accent piece in that style. A good example would be a certain pattern or color. If you get that pattern or color in a small dose, such as a scarf or nail polish, you can try out the trend without wasting money if it's not for you.


Customize It

Chances are, you fall into more than one style category. Don't be afraid to embrace boho-chic or edgy-girly if that is you! Another way to customize your look is to have something that is totally you. Make your look completely your own with a signature piece, such as an item of jewelry or a certain style of purse.



Most of all, have fun determining your personal style!
