Personal style is not just about looking great but also about feeling confident. When you feel your personal style is on point, it makes the whole world look different from how it felt before.
Not sure how to dress?
Do you try different styles every day and end up feeling like you don’t know who you are anymore? If so, then this article is for you!
This post will help you learn what personal style is, how it differs from fashion style, and how to find your own.
By the time I’m done writing this post, I’ll have helped guide your journey towards discovering your personal style!
It could even give you a new perspective on life and career opportunities as well.
There are many ways to go around this issue, of course, but one way is by following these key tips below:
Personal Style Tips
Tip 1 — Begin with choosing items that fit perfectly into your wardrobe. If there are things that don’t work together because of too much difference in style, then this will be a problem.
Tip 2 — Choose the right color scheme for your personal style. This is important because not only do colors bring out certain moods or feelings in people, but they can also make you look taller or skinnier if paired correctly.
Tip 3 — Make sure to choose pieces that are versatile enough. It wouldn’t hurt to have additional items of clothing which could work well with another outfit too since they’re very easy to mix and match into different styles together.
Tip 4 — Figure out what shapes work best on your body type and dress accordingly! There’s nothing more frustrating than finding something beautiful yet ill-fitting at the same time when trying it on because you chose the wrong shape for your body.
Tip 5 — Edit down the wardrobe, so it’s not overstuffed. It can be hard to choose from a lot of options, but remember that every piece you have should contribute to making an outfit work well together, no matter how small or insignificant each item is.
Tip 6 — Look into what compliments your eye color and skin tone best! This will not only give you ideas on colors that are flattering against your natural features, but also offers more inspiration for fashion choices in general if there are certain shades that look amazing on them too.
Tip 7— Try out different styles until finding one that suits you most! There are common mistakes when choosing a personal style, especially with being afraid of not looking as good as other people. Getting over this fear and trying out different looks without any hesitation is how you will finally find yourself along the way!
Tip 8— Get inspiration from celebrities that you think have a personal style you admire. These people can be inspiring in many ways depending on how they dress, so it’s important to always keep an open mind when seeing what other fashion icons are up to, but don’t be a slave to them!
Tip 9 — Practice self-care and enjoy the process of finding your own look! It might seem like a lot of work for personal style, but if there is anything worth trying out, then it should feel like something special for yourself too. Don’t forget about having fun while doing it as well, since this attitude will lead towards better results without becoming discouraged along the way either.
Tip 10 — You can also be part of online communities that will give you the necessary information about how to dress properly according to certain occasions (business casual style for example).
Tip 11 — If you still don’t know where to start, consider attending fashion workshops or personal style seminars in your area.

Personal Style Recap
- What kind of clothes do you like to wear and why?
- Do not think too far outside the box because we all have our comfort zones when it comes to fashion; no one wants to see what someone else is wearing, but rather they want them to look good in something they would never consider buying themselves, which is difficult for most people!
- Don’t skimp out on accessories either such as scarves, hats, bags, etcetera…the possibilities with those items are endless!!! Just remember that having great personal style doesn’t happen overnight; it’s something you need to work on over time.
- Life is too short, and we only get one chance at this thing called “life” so dress up every opportunity that comes across your path!!! Every day will give you new chances for self-expression through clothing!!
- Don’t limit yourself by thinking that there is a set rule book out there somewhere from someone else telling us what looks good or bad when in fact, most rules were made to be broken! In other words, be creative and have fun!!
- It takes time and practice, since personal style can be changeable based on moods and events.
