The most important thing to remember about personal style and fashion is that you are the client. Fashion is here to work to fit you, not to make you work to fit fashion. I don’t like to talk or write about fashion rules, because I think you have to make the rules by yourself. Choose the mirror before you leave home as your best friend and work mostly on how you feel inside. Fashion is amazing, but it’s just a journey that you can use to complete the Real You.
True personal style is that which looks great to the outside world but makes the wearer feel even greater inside. If you are confident in your style, it will project beauty no matter what you’re wearing. Regardless of what’s trending at the moment, try to stay true to yourself. Know what you look good in and what you like and stick to that. Many people think they can’t afford high-end style. But you’ll get more value if you spend your money on one good investment piece that you’ll use for years, like a cool bag, instead of wasting money on multiple pieces that aren’t classic. High-quality materials like genuine leather often cost more than fast-fashion pieces, but they’ll add sophistication to your wardrobe for years to come.
If you have a pear body type, look for styles that elongate your figure to take the emphasis away from your lower body. You want to draw attention to your upper torso, and the best way to do that is by pairing dark-colored bottom pieces with lighter shades and patterns up top. Think of bold patterns and necklines that have detailing like embellishments or ruffles. You should avoid skinny jeans and instead opt for bootcut or those with a slight flare. Showing your shoulders also helps in drawing attention upwards and balancing your top half with your bottom half proportions. If you have a boxy (or apple) body type, the goal is to create curves and elongate your silhouette. Stay away from boxy, loose-fitting shapes and monotone colors on both top and bottom.
Knowing which clothes you hate is just as important as knowing which ones you love.
