People say looks aren’t everything, but the power of personal style shows that it surely is something and something major at that. Regardless of people’s personal perception of beauty, your look is your overall presentation & appearance, from your hair to your heels. When it comes to inspiration and putting your look together, whether you’re using the least brain power or the most data on social media, we all take some level of care and often pride in our appearance. What you wear in the morning or night can truly affect your mood, posture and even confidence, so it really does pay to care. Being shallow isn’t in your presentation, it’s in your personality, regardless of what you put on.
TRUE STYLE NEEDS NO WORDS
Personal style isn’t just about matching colours and following trends, it’s the power of self-awareness. It’s also about showcasing what you’re really about without saying a word. Ultimately style is about telling a story, your story.
When it comes to dressing up, we can often tell ourselves that “none of this really matters” but it does and as written in dressing down depression, sometimes it really is the little things. Taking the time to put a look together that makes you feel great about yourself is not just worthwhile but important. It is about telling yourself that you are worth the effort, whether the world values it or not. There’s no denying that when you know you look great, you also feel great and so when you feel great, you also do great. That is the power of personal style.
As a fashion stylist, the power of styling is about adding value to every client and project and telling an artistic story through props and pieces. So, when it come to the true meaning of style, remember, you don’t have to force it, just feel it.
“Be faithful to your own tastes because nothing you really like is ever out of style.”
