Developing Your Style Personality
The time has come for the inner you to come out and tell us how you want the world to view you. Your personality dictates your style, which is your own interpretation of fashion.
If you ignore your personality and purchase pieces that are influenced by fashion magazines or what suits a friend, you will wind up with a wardrobe of jumbled styles.
Not only will this severely limit your flexibility in mixing and matching to create combinations, but it will be disastrous in terms of capital outlay.
When you dress in styles and accessories that reflect your personality, we notice you first, then your clothes.
You will look and act yourself. When you feel at ease with your image, you can be more relaxed in any given situation.
If you choose clothes that ‘aren’t really you’, you will tend to feel contrived, self-conscious and perhaps even ridiculous.
For any role you perform, and for any occasion, you can truly express your personality to ensure that the focus of attention is on you and not the designer’s ensemble.
Some days you will feel relaxed and want your look to reflect this. Other days, you may be more reserved or perhaps even feel a bit stressed.
On those occasions, you won’t want to wear either colours or styles that attract attention.
We are not suggesting that you want to downgrade your look because we recognise that you will always want to look good.
Just as your mood will vary, so do the social requirements of your life. There will always be occasions, both special and pedestrian, that call for different looks.
In other words, there are days when you want or need to be dramatic, classic, or perhaps just more relaxed.
Once you recognise your own style – you will know it’s power. Style is very personal and the trademark of individuals who are extremely confident in their own taste.
Always remember that style is not defined to one particular image.
With that in mind, you need to think about your style personality and its relationship to you and adaptability to your lifestyle.
