3 Tips for Matching Your Fashion Style to Your Personality
We all know that there have to be some comments about your experience and you should accept it as something that is normal, but there still is one thing you can do about it – you can turn your style into a statement!
Countless surveys show that non-verbal communication is even more important than verbal. It means that your body language, your facial expressions, the way your body moves, gesticulating, and finally – the way you look, seems to communicate even more than what you talk. It has also been proven that the first 5 seconds are crucial when you meet someone new. In other words, this means that every person you meet creates an opinion about you based on the way you behave and look, even before you say a single word. What is the conclusion from all of this? The conclusion is that one of the best ways to communicate your personality to other people is through your fashion style and the way you look.
Still, if you know who you are, this doesn’t mean that you necessarily have to know how to express it to others. People usually have to go through several phases, and try different styles in order to find the one that fits their personality, and that can really represent who they are. However, during this process, many fashion mistakes are usually being made. Luckily for all of us, there are great tools, tips and tricks that you can take advantage of, and prevent all those fashion disasters that you can see in the paparazzi photos from the 90s or in the photos from your high school (we’ve all been there!).
1. Look Inside
The second thing you can (and you should!) do is to explore all the styles, trends, and outfit inspiration on websites such as Pinterest or Instagram. Why is this something you should do? By researching and exploring what’s already there, you might find something new, a style that you haven’t heard about but that you might like. If you like several styles, or several pieces of clothing or accessories, then you can take something you like from each of them, mix and match and create your own style. That being said, finding the style or several styles that fit you the most, and adjusting them or personalizing them to match your preferences, should be your goal at the end! But until then, if you know what you like but you are not sure where' to start, knowing that there are styles such as vintage, art hoe, rocker chic, sportswear, military style, tomboy, bohemian chic or business casual – might help you determine what would fit you best. Also, knowing what fashion trends are hot right now, such as bright colored checks, large floral prints or headscarves – can also inspire you to experiment and play with colors, textures, styles and accessories.
3. Use Useful Tools
The way it functions is – it gives you a set of questions and small tasks to solve and answer, and by doing that, the app decides which style or styles are the best fit for you, according to your preferences. Finally, you get a thorough explanation and the details about your style, after which you can continue searching for examples on the internet, and finding even more details, fashion pieces etc. Although this may seem like it’s limiting you or putting you in a box, it really is useful because it can allow you to better understand yourself, while offering you a huge variety of styles to choose from, with definitions and pictures, which can be a great place to start building your fashion persona!
