Written by our stylist Chris
Ever wondered what style truly means? A style is nothing but an expression of self that we convey through what we’re wearing! Therefore, clothes and accessories play a very important role when it comes to showcase the best version of ourselves. As a stylist I often come across women with a “closet full of clothes, nothing to wear”. I’m telling you, this is not a funny phrase from a chick flick, it’s a real fact. Why is that you might ask? I wrote a whole list of reasons that you can check here, but today let’s discuss style. Or, more precisely, the confusion about different styles and what we want to communicate through ours.
We tend to shop all sorts of trendy women’s clothing we see online when in reality we should be shopping based solely on who we are and what suits our personality. I’ve worked with this woman who tons of floral items that she almost hated. She reckon it must have been the trend, but wasn’t really her taste. Other woman had too many plain items. Did she needed five long black skirts? Or ten black tops for women? No! She always felt quite invisible when in reality she had a bubbly personality. One long black skirt is enough. Invest in a little black dress or a black fitted jumpsuit.
I often do this exercise with women and it’s really useful. I advise you to do the same before you hit again all your favourite online clothing stores.
Stay in front of your closet and make an outfit that you would wear to:
This is how I get a sense of who they are and also how they envision themselves as their best version.
Copying is one pitfall that lands us in the worst zone where in our attempt to feel confident we often end up feeling more miserable about ourselves. So the secret lies in being true to oneself which comes from wearing the tone of style that truly indicates our personality type. You may get across a lot of different styles in women clothing and accessories but how to choose your own flavor remains the actual concern.
Women’s clothing online stores have become the biggest boons of the time based on the diverse displays of fashion clothes for women. Possibilities are endless and we can create a fair play of fashion.
Let’s explore and talk about a few style segments that have made the category of their own and have proved themselves as a strong expression’ over a period of time!
Let’s not forget about the accessories. Elements to look for include: embroideries, fringe, tassels, antique finish jewellery, patchwork, braid detailing, rattan bags and belts. Also, don’t be afraid to wear something in a different way that it was intended for. Like this multi-row necklace worn as a trousers/skirt chain accessory.
Do you relate to any of these above? If so, follow their trail of evolution. If not, explore even more areas and discover those that speak about yourself. Experiment with your clothes and accessories to reach the best level of your potential that swells your being with pride and dignity.
Nowhere is written to follow a fixed lane of fashion when you can have a different flavor each day! And speaking the true language of fashion comes from matching your outer sense of style based on your inner expression!
