AddThis Social Bookmark Button

When you're looking to develop a personal fashion style you can be known for, it’s very important to research and make sure you know what kind of look you want to show off to the world.

There are plenty of reputable sources to do some fashion research and find your preferences. Check out this beginner’s guide to personal style to get an idea of how people find their own styles.

Pay Attention to Fashion Week

Watch and read all about every fashion week there is. The trends hitting the runway during fashion week are sure to be hitting the stores soon.


Paris Fashion Week: Ziad Nakad Spring Summer 2020 Collection – Sensual, Dazzling, Provocative

Watch and wait to see what items or even styles stand out to you. Imagine yourself wearing the styles you find yourself drawn to and think about any commonalities they may have. For example, if you find yourself enjoying pieces that incorporate chiffon fabric or large embellishments, these may be good things to add to your repertoire.

Try New Styles and Pieces

Don’t be afraid to get out there and window shop. Try on things that are outside your comfort zone—you just might be surprised at how confident you feel when you push the boundaries of your normal looks. Not every item you try out will make it into your closet, but a few surely will.


Paris Fashion Week: Rani Zakhem Couture, Fall/Winter 2018-2019 – Dazzling, Flamboyant, Sensual

As you’re shopping, keep a mental note of the items you like that you were surprised by. These can be great indicators that you’re starting to develop a true image of your own personal style. Find commonalities in the pieces; for example, if most of the pieces you choose are brighter in color or have patterns, make sure to note this so you know what to look for as your style matures.

Look to The Past for Inspiration

Look back on past fashionistas for inspiration. Some of the best trends may have happened before you were even born.


Milan Fashion Week: IH NOM UH NIT Launches SS 18 Women’s Collection – Mixing the Beat Avant-Garde Meets Haute Couture

Vintage fashion styles largely influence most fashion today, and mixing in a few elements from the past is a great way to pay homage to the fashion icons of the past while looking forward to the future. Find icons that you relate to fashion-wise and look for pieces that emulate their style while fitting into the modern era.

Stay Away from Trends and Fads

Fashion is fickle. Trends come and go quickly, so you shouldn’t allow them to influence your personal style and taste too much. Personal style is timeless and structured.


HL Paris Fashion Week: Yohann Fayolle - Ultra Sexy, Superbly Stylish, The Ultimate Summer Collection

If a trend comes in that you love, ask yourself if you would wear the trend a year from now—or even a year ago. If you would and you stand by the trend, consider making it part of your permanent fashion style and work it into your personal styling brand.
