What is ‘personal style‘? And how to find your personal style? These are those fashion questions that get thrown around a lot as if finding “your style” is an end game!
But guess what, if you’re still seeking for your own personal style. YOU DON’T HAVE TO! You already have your own style! Okay, you might be thinking is this a click bait (lol)? So basically, this blogpost is not that typical kind of step by step guide, instead it is on how I view fashion, and how I find my style or perhaps I never did.
I don’t have and will never have A FIX STYLE as my style is ever-evolving! For me, fashion is a visual expression of myself. I’m always changing my mentality, my goals, my perspective. Hence, it’s impossible that I only STICK TO ONE FREAKING STYLE. Like everyone else, I used to fall into the trap of thinking oh I belong to “The Minimal Style”, “The Streetwear Style” or “The Boho Style” but seriously nobody on this earth is one full set! How boring would fashion be if you settle for a style? Are you okay with wearing that similar style until the end of your days? If you’re okay, congratulations, that’s your style, but definitely not me.
Limitation do not exists. Your style is yours!
But here are some tips and tricks I’ve picked up throughout the years to make my style my own.
- Get outfit inspiration
Get inspirations from anywhere and everywhere that speak directly to your soul. It can be a music video, a billboard sign, the passerby, your favourite celebrity or the social media. For me, Pinterest and Instagram are my main sources for outfit inspo.
Follow me on Pinterest.
- Start with basics.
Not sure how or where to start, basics are always the answer. Everyone in this world needs basic, a basic tee, a basic pair of jeans. Not to mention, basics are the foundation of your wardrobe. If you have basics you don’t need to worry that you have nothing to wear.
Basics before trendy pieces!
- Know your body type and what silhouette looks flattering on you.
The most important thing is to understand your body shape and know the silhouettes that are always flattering on you. Taking pictures as well as looking in the mirror will help spot the silhouettes that you should rely on.

- How do you feel
If you feel good in it, you look good in it. It isn’t what you wearing but how you’re feeling when you wear it. If you feel amazing in it, wear it and don’t worry what others think of you. If you feel like people are judging on how you wear, probably they are thinking the same. And if you really know the person is judging you, you HAVE to show em you don’t give a damn. Continue wear it and eventually they will know you don’t give a shit on what they think and they will stop judging you. Remember what others think of you are the reflections of their own reality.
- Confidence is everything
Whatever you wear, feel confident in it. If you’re wearing something amazing, but you don’t feel confident in it, that outfit would look 10x worse than it could be! Thus, show people that you enjoy what you’re wearing. Fake your confidence until you have it!
- Explore and try everything
Don’t afraid to step out from your comfort zone and try out everything. You need to know what you hate to know what you really love. P.S trying won’t break your bank tho! So have fun! Fashion supposed to be FUN!
