Your style is a such a personal and power subject. You can define style many different ways. My favorite quote about style is "Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak."- Rachel Zoe
This couldn't be any truer. Y'all, it took me years to figure out what pocket if you might that felt best to me. You can dress girly, glam, girly chic, grunge, minimal, bohemian....
You can literally fit into any one of these categories, and for me, it depends on how I'm feeling that today. So my closet is diverse, but if I had to pick, I would lend towards the glam/edgy side of style. This is a great place to start when it comes to defining your personal style. Look through your closet and see what categories your clothes fall into.
1. CLOSET OVERVIEW
2. WORK WITH TRENDS
Who doesn't love a trendy piece of clothing? I know I do, but it can become problematic when all your buying is trendy pieces, and the next season you can't use it with different outfits. What I do with my favorite items is rework them into odd outfit combination.
3. DOCUMENT INSPIRATION
I love using magazine inspiration even though print magazines are dying out :( I still sit down with a cup of hot tea, and cut and paste outfit spreads.
When shopping you should be looking for the best quality, especially when it comes to your jeans. Also, going to the mall helps a lot with this- you can touch and look at items that you possibly express who you are.
5. CHOOSE CONFIDENCE
One of my favorite bloggers is Courtney Quinn who writes the blog colormecourtney, one of the reasons why I love her, and her feed is because she gives off so much confidence! Her personal style is so fun and colorful, and you can tell she's pleased with expressing herself. I remember reading one of her blogs where she talked about trying to be like every other blogger out there. It left her feeling trapped and unexpired until she decided to be herself.
