I'm so glad Lauren, from Simply Chic Mom, is here today sharing tips and suggestions for discovering our own personal style statements. She first shared this concept with me a few weeks ago, and it has really helped me narrow down what I look for when I shop!
Take it away Lauren!
Thanks to several inquiries, I wrote this post to help you develop your own personal style statement!
A style statement is a 2-3 word phrase that encapsulates what your style is or what you would hope it to be. This statement helps you to shop according to your taste and allows you to narrow down options. It can also aid in you finding style icons to be inspired by (who share similar tastes) which can allow you to piece together items that you already own to create new looks!
*My sister-in-law, fashion blogger, helped me develop mine!
For example, I tend to love feminine, floral, comfortable, textured, simple outfits.
My style statement is Pretty Chic.
My style icon is Clemence Posey, a french actress who shares similar loves. I often get outfit ideas from her.
a) Does this item fit in my Pretty Chic wardrobe?
b) Do I already own something too similar to this item?
So, now you try....choose some words that describe the clothing you are drawn to (on yourself or others) and develop a style statement! If you need help, contact me!
Thrifting tips coming soon!
I don't know about you, but I am ready to shop! And Lauren helped me figure out my style statement, which is classic & solid (I know. . . not nearly as nice sounding as "pretty chic") and now I stick to it when I shop!
