Identifying my own personal style took years, and I mean plenty of them! I wish I could have seen my current self, a lot of mistakes would not have been made when it came to fashion. LOL
They say things take time and that would include finding your fashion identity. If this was a no brainer for you, congrats, you’re rare. Back to those of us who’ve gone through many fashion stages. I remember being younger and thinking, I’m doing it! What that looked like, was crazy. Nowadays I’m happy GOD had favor. Moving me into what I consider a safe, classic, edgy and chic zone. A place where I can show up and the stares won’t be uncomfortable. You know like when you rocked really long nails with a charm and short shorts with the fringes from your grandmother’s sewing kit, nothing like today’s fashion forward trend. Don’t judge me!
With all that being said, identifying my style made me think and focus on what I love and how it makes me feel when wearing it. I have a few questions I ask myself that I’ ll share below:
1. Will I keep this forever? ex: Chanel Bag..YES!
2. Is this a trend that I would never wear if and when it comes back in a few years?
3. Do I own one of these already?
4. Am I buying just to buy it?
5. Do I love it? No, then leave it.
Hope this helps. Leave a comment below, if you have more questions.
