GET TO KNOW YOUR IDEAL STYLE.
- Go through your own closet. What pieces that you already own make you feel good when you wear them? These are the pieces that need to stay. If there are pieces that do not spark your interest anymore, it might be a good time to give them away! OR SELL THEM ON PINK ATTIK 😉
CONSUME CONTENT THAT YOU LIKE.
- Surrounding yourself with content that inspires you is the best way to get started on learning about your personal style. This content could be in the form of magazine articles, Instagram posts, Tiktoks, etc. Save the content that inspires you all in one place, and give yourself time to think about what part of that piece of content sparked your interest. Is it the color scheme, the composition, the proportions? Knowing exactly what you like about each look could help you find items that work similarly for you.
UNDERSTAND THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN TRENDS & WHAT YOU ACTUALLY LIKE.
- With the fast pace of social media, it could be easy to get lost between trends and your own taste. When you see the same dress over and over again, on many different creators, that motivates you to buy that same dress. But the problem with that is because it gets worn so many times, the period for which the dress is trendy is so short. This is why it’s important to ask yourself: Do I actually like the dress? Or am I buying it because it’s trendy?
THRIFTING TO THE RESCUE!
- This is where thrifted clothing comes to the rescue. When you figure out what pieces you actually like, it becomes so much easier for you to build a wardrobe that will last you a longer amount of time. These pieces could be trendy, they could be vintage, or they could be basics, but what is important is the ability to mix and match these pieces in such a way that they cater to what you like, on the long run.
