The Power of Personal Style: A Guide to Discovering Yours

I want to delve into a topic that's a deep part of who we are, yet often overlooked: the power of discovering your personal style. It's more than just dressing up or following the trends; it's an intimate form of self-expression and self-care, a daily affirmation of our individuality.


We live in a time where our lives are intertwined with the digital realm. The constant flood of new trends and "must-haves" can sometimes be overwhelming. But amidst this barrage of influences, your personal style acts as a compass, guiding you towards choices that truly reflect your inner self.


We've all been guilty of making impulse purchases, lured by a passing trend or a flashy sale. These items, however, often end up being neglected, lost in the depths of our wardrobes. This is where understanding your personal style comes in. It saves us from these misaligned buys, ensuring that each piece we add to our wardrobe truly resonates with our identity.


Wearing an outfit that feels authentically 'you' does wonders for your confidence. When your attire aligns with your personal style, you step out as an empowered version of yourself, ready to take on the world.


Your personal style goes beyond the surface. It's a vivid representation of who you are—your journey, your passions, your unique personality. Each color, fabric, and style you choose tells your story, acting as a reflection of your inner authenticity.


Recognizing and embracing your personal style is a profound act of self-care. It's not just about looking good—it's about feeling your best. This daily affirmation of your identity offers a moment of self-appreciation and self-love.


Are you ready to embark on the journey to discover your personal style? Here are some practical steps to guide you:


  1. Reflect on your lifestyle and personality. Your personal style should complement your daily activities and resonate with who you are.

  2. Evaluate your current wardrobe. Which are your go-to pieces and why do you love them? How do you FEEL when you wear them? This understanding can provide valuable insights into your personal style.

  3. Create a mood board: A visual tool for capturing what attracts you. Collect images of outfits, colors, patterns, and styles that inspire you. You might find a recurring theme. You can keep this in your Notes app or go as far as creating a Pinterest board.

  4. Review and refine: Personal style evolves over time. Regularly reviewing and refining it ensures it continues to reflect your authentic self.

Once you've completed all four steps, identify 2-3 style descriptors for your personal style and identify how you want your clothes to make you feel. These become your filters for all of your style choices going forward. The next time you think about buying something ask yourself these questions: Does it align with any of my 2-3 style descriptors? Will it make me feel [insert your desired feeling]? If yes and yes, go for it. If the first answer is a no, the the second is likely a no.


Embarking on this journey to discover and celebrate your personal style is an investment in self-expression and self-confidence. It's not just about the clothes you wear—it's about expressing who you truly are. So, let's embark on this journey together. Because every day is a good day to celebrate our unique selves.
