Find your own fashion style in 4 steps
First things first, having a “personal style” is your foolproof way of expressing your individuality through aesthetic choices that make you feel comfortable - and gorgeous. Hence, you might need a stellar strategy to determine the clothing that works for you.
Let’s take a look in your closet
Every one of us has those clothes that always manage to make us feel, well, happy. What are your most worn pieces? Do you often reach for chunky knit cardigans that are equal parts otherworldly warm and flattering? Then thoughtfully handknitted outwear like the Jolie Cardigan is a great basis for your future ensembles.
Maybe, you find yourself opting for winter jackets in monochromatic tones. What you need to do is pull these trusted pieces out of your closet and think about the reasons these styles make you feel good. As you might have noticed, there is, indeed, a pattern here.
Start building your capsule wardrobe
In a nutshell, a capsule wardrobe is where all your basics come to life. Consider it as a stellar way to always have an outfit that just works with minimum effort. The end goal is to create a collection of clothing that can be mixed and matched to create dozens of looks while also providing a foundation for more exciting pieces to be added.
Your capsule wardrobe should include tried and true clothing heroes like the neutral-colored Niagara Sweater, spring jackets that can take you from day to night with ease similar to our Lyla Blazer, and, of course, an array of key pieces for layering. The Celka Denim Shirt is a great candidate. This way you will have the perfect harmonious canvas to add unexpected touches of color, play around with different accessories and enhance your personal style without clashing.
Don’t forget; finding the perfect fit is extremely important. Curve Ms. Meri Mak is filled to the brim with plus size styles that are made with curvy girls in mimd.
Adding a personal flair
Now that you already have a list of staples that deserve a place in your wardrobe, it’s time to add your own personal flair. Experimenting with unique styles that perfectly match your mood and personality is such a fun way to create those enviable looks that are uniquely you.
Let’s start by adding bold pops of color. Our gorgeously-crafted silk scarves with interesting patterns are wear-me- anywhere Parisian pieces that will certainly catch everyone’s eye. You can layer them with your winter jackets or match them with your effortlessly-chic monochromatic spring dresses. Of course, you can also mix and match prints and textures.
Handmade jewelry is a fantastic way to upgrade even the simplest of looks. You can play around with different shapes according to your mood. From look-at-me pieces like our Edouard Hammered Spiral Earrings to statement-making jewels that “wow” everyone like the Elodie Mirror ZigZag Earrings, the options are in your favor.
The formal attire
From prom ensembles to wedding-appropriate outfits, you can definitely add your own personal touch to every event and occasion. Our Madleen Jumpsuit, for example, is a versatile piece that belongs in your capsule wardrobe. You can style it up with a striking silk scarf, add a subtle pair of Emmalyn Hairpin Earrings and create the perfect wedding look.
Now that you know our best ways to find your own personal style, it’s time to start experimenting with your looks. Remember, at the end of the day, your style should reflect you and your personality. So, make sure to stay comfortable and shine from within.
