Personal Style Doesn’t Require You To Break The Bank…

Breaking the bank is definitely not a prerequisite requirement for achieving personal style; however, personal style does require the following:

1. Confidence:

    • Without confidence, you could have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to wear a million dollar outfit and you can still manage to look completely horrible simply due to lack of confidence. You have to be confident with what you wear, whether you’re wearing a $5 outfit, or a $500 outfit. Believe in yourself. Get comfortable looking at yourself in the mirror. Review your expressions. Do you frown when you think? Do you look down when you walk in a crowd of people? Do you have a good side of your body that you don’t even know? Knowing who you are and how you feel about yourself are all stepping stones to building confidence. Mental Health Matters and confidence is key.

2. Vision/Foresight:

    • You need to have a vision of what you want to look like, whether it is a day to day outfit, whether it is a professional outfit, or whether it is for a special occasion. You need to have a vision of what you want to look like and how you want to project yourself or present yourself to others, or present yourself to yourself. Every photoshoot that I have been involved in thus far has proven successful because I have a vision of how I want to look, what image I want to portray, and what team I want to use to ensure that my vision comes to fruition. This also rings true for day-to-day outfit. You don’t need a team of experts to assist in your journey towards personal style, but you do need to be an expert in “YOU“. I am a firm believer in envisioning an idea and creating a visual reminder and representation of that idea. Our minds are very powerful but an idea will continue to be an idea unless there is a plan to action. One of the first steps of idea creation is to write it down. A vision without a strategy remains an illusion. – Lee Bolman

3. The One Item Starting Point:

    • What exactly do I mean by that? Well often times when looking for an outfit you are perusing magazines searching for full outfits. Why don’t you search on the net for pieces of the outfit you desire to but or already have existing in your wardrobe and build and build from there? If there is this shirt that you are absolutely dying to wear, let that be your starting point and build to what type of pants go well with that outfit, to the types of shoes that match, followed by jewelry and top it off with a fresh face

4. Color/Color Scheme

    • You need to have a color scheme in mind. You need to know if you want to wear a red dress or a yellow dress or a white top or a blue top , you need to have some sense of color with at least one of the items you are wearing. Once you start with that, then you can build on how you want to proceed with your particular look. Honestly, personal style is a personal choice. Whatever you choose for your personal style is subjective. As a result, my personal style can be very different from your personal style, but it doesn’t make your personal style wrong as opposed to my personal style. As a result, work with what you got.

 

5. Use the Internet/Use tools at Your disposal:

    • The Internet provides a slew of examples and guides that you can use to mirror styles off of.  Use the internet to your advantage. The world is an awesome place, despite the fact that we’re in the middle of a pandemic. Utilize friends, family members, or a personal stylist to assist you in finding your own signature style. And lastly,

6. Don’t get frustrated.

    • If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. It’s ok to not know where to begin when trying to achieve your personal style, but don’t beat yourself up about it. Find someone you admire and mirror your style off of them. There is literally no need to reinvent the wheel. Find similar pieces at your favorite stores. Shop. Ask yourself a few questions. Does it fit? Are you comfortable? Do you feel pretty, sexy, professional? Well, then mission accomplished!

7. Don’t Keep Up with Anyone, Do You!

    • I think there is something to be said about societal pressures to look a certain way. It is a further societal pressure to look a certain way and maintain that persona even if you don’t have the financial backing to support. Hey girl hey!! It’s okay if you shop at Rainbow, local beauty supply, Walmart, etc. Stay in your lane and make that look work for you!! There is a thin line between being inspired by a look versus overextended yourself to achieve a look. Do you get me? I pray you do!!
