You are a unique individual with taste, creations, and a flair for fashion that is all your own. It does not matter if you love the latest trends or hate them. It’s all about you, you and you. There is no concrete definition of fashion, even though others might say so. It is the uniqueness of us all that makes humanity so great! Having a signature style is not an ego trip. It’s your logo; your brand. You get to express your own way of seeing the world and that is valuable to all while leaving your calling card. Read on to learn how to establish your signature style.
The fashion police may say rough or funny observations on a celebrity’s hairstyle or what they had on during an awards show. To humor ourselves we laugh at the comments made by the press, but in order to have a signature, we have to take a step away from the common fashion consensus. What works for you might not work for everyone. They don’t have to like it, but you do. Worrying about what is ‘fashionably proper’ stops some people from finding the signature style they were born to rock.
Check Out Fashion Icons
Look up to your favorite fashion icons and determine why you gravitate to their style. Find something that you really like, something that speaks to you, and include it in your own style. Remember that your fashion signature could be anything, a hairstyle, a style of clothing, a certain color, and so on. If you see something you like, go for it. However, remember that having a signature requires a commitment. What you change on a regular basis can hardly be called your signature.
Ask yourself what vibe do you want to send out to the world (bohemian free spirit vs. posh glam vixen). Wear the styles that you are comfortable and confident in. Look in the mirror and listen if every piece of the ensemble screams your name. If they do, then you have a winner.
Fit and Form
Wear clothes that flatter your body type. Are you skinny, curvy, broad, plus? With the thousands of designers and boutiques that are available, women are sure to find the perfect fit for your body shape.
Find the Colors that Compliment Your Skin
When creating your signature, it has to be something that makes you look your best. If it doesn’t, then wear the color only if it makes you happy. Warm undertones go well with peach, cooler undertones with blue. A signature style captures attention because it perfectly complements the person. Save the favorite colors for the wall of your house if they do not bring out the best in you.
Evaluate the outfit that you put together. Check your hair, clothing, accessories, shoes, and anything in between. Do they harmonize well, or is it too much? Editing is key in having a good sense of style. Creating a signature style does not have to be difficult, but it is work and it is a challenge. You might go through several different stages before finding your own fashion definition. Wear your style with confidence, and blissful pride.
