I hope I’m not alone in this, but one question I really hate answering is “How would you describe your personal style?”
If you’re anything like me you’ll string together an explanation that doesn’t really make sense but it sort of answers the question, and then you’ll change the subject completely.
In the past I’ve made my fair share of purchases I regret (who let me buy a fringed blue crop top?) and I think the reason why I’ve made some of these purchasing blunders all boils down to not fully understanding my own personal style, not knowing which clothes feel like ‘me’ and which feel like imposters in my wardrobe.
Like the Type A person I am, I’ve come up with a list of questions to help myself and anyone else out there that’s looking to pinpoint their style and figure out the kind of image they want to project:
What are your most worn and well-loved clothing items?
What kinds of clothes make you feel the most uncomfortable?
For me, I’ve figured out that my personal style consists of a lot of neutrals and fairly minimal yet classic looks. I feel the most comfortable in breezy/oversized tops and more slim fit bottoms and seeing as I don’t gravitate toward jewellery, I use bags, shoes and my hair and makeup to add a little something extra to my looks. My style is simple, but always quite put together (I hope). Bam, there’s me in four sentences.
