I am setting the record straight: style is not about wearing the latest trends or, dare I put it out there, the best name brands. Style is infusing your personality, interests, and life story into your look. It is the creation of a unique visual that is great only because it is 100% you.
So I thought I’d share some ways I see people creating personal style. I’ll lay out some general styles so you can decide which you gravitate towards, but remember: it is about you…it always has been.
These are just a few types of styles. There are so many others, and they mean different things to different people. My desire is to show and identify some of them, and to see where you may find yourself. You can even mix them up and give me modern with vintage touches. The rule is: there is no rule.
Perhaps you don’t want to pigeonhole yourself. You might want to jump from one to the other and be a style chameleon. I know I do on a given day. I can be vintage and jump into a hip hop look with ease. Sometimes a modern aesthetic is calling me, and another day calls for my maximum sartorialist look a la Mad Men. The point here is to know them and infuse the different aspects of yourself into them. After all, that is what style is all about.
Which Style do you gravitate towards? Let me know?
