What’s Gucci you guys, how yall been? hope yall were just fine.
Today’s post is all about signature style or personal style as most people would love to refer to it. I initially did a post on personal style way back when i began blogging but today’s post is all about hacks that ive tried and worked for me. here i am sharing this with you.
Signature style according to me is style that defines your personality, who you are on the inside but through your outfits, whats your mood on that specific day. below are some of the steps to finding your signature style and sticking with it.
- UNDERSTAND YOUR BODY SHAPE.
Growing up my momma used to tell me to dress up in flattering silhouettes that were suitable for my body type. I ain’t petite or some shit but I love to think of myself as thick😊 maybe plus size. That way I know that bodycon attires work for me and A-line skirts don’t, but I still wear them. They cute as hell.
Work with honest friends and family, they’ll totally give you they honest opinions and if you home alone, use a mirror to help you figure which silhouettes are perfect for you.
One more thing, pay close attention to fashion icons with similar body silhouettes that work for them. I personally look up-to Ashley graham coz I can relate to her and not Kylie Jenner or Karruche Tran. Have you seen they bods fam???! Dang!!
- INVEST IN ITEMS YOU WILL REWEAR
For a successful signature style is one you will love and love and so your focus should be on attires that you will adore for long.
For instance, The little black dress is a piece that comes in handy in different occasions and could be styled in a million ways. It’s a life saver. If jeans ready your thing, run with it.
I personally have loads of party dresses that are rarely worn but I have them anyway. Such pieces aren’t day time appropriate but you can style them to decent outfits.
- RECOGNISE THE STUFF YOU NEVER LIKE.
Pay close attention to items that never make you feel good or sexy or stylish. Everybody may be rocking the crop top trending, doesn’t mean you should do it. If it doesn’t make your heart sing, don’t do it. I personally avoid outfits that make me look bigger than I already am or show my belly cuz good heavens I got one.
- REALIZE YOUR STYLE ICONS.
Inspiration is everywhere this days. It could be your stylish boss, your momma or maybe a new blogger you are just hearing input like myself. I could be your inspiration, you know😊
- FIND COLOURS THAT SUIT YOU.
I love colour, makes me happy but it’s not for eveybody. When finding yourself a perfect silhouette, keep colour in mind. Find this that suit your skin tone and don’t make you look washed out.
Note that LIPSTICK 💄 goes a long way to making so many shadows seem easier to wear.
- NEVER RULE OUT A UNIFORM.
Uniform may sound boring but it’s the stuff we wear on a regular basis. The white tee, jeans, ankle boots are a formula reliable and doesn’t mean it has to look the same. It perfect when you have ‘nothing to wear. ‘
- FIND YOUR SIGNATURE PIECES.
My signature pieces are mostly accessories but you find that most style icons have signatures that can be spotted from miles away. For example Anna Wintour and her sunglasses, Rhianna with her wine glass .
Signature pieces could be colours, prints, beauty tricks or accessories as previously stated
- CREATE A MOOD BOARD.
Not everybody has time to create this but putting together the looks you love on Pinterest or the bookmark tag on instagram is key. This helps you keep tabs on trends you’d like to copy.
Screenshot works for me.
- MAKE AN AUDIT OF YOUR WARDROBE.
In order to nail your signature style, organize your wardrobe. It efficient and easy to work with. Not gonna lie, mine’s organised at some point and disorganised ever 😂😂
That is all for today guys,
Thanks for passing by,
