When it comes to choosing a personal style or aesthetics, it all comes down to your personal preferences in clothing and style. Discovering your style can sometimes seem a bit difficult because of the many clothing trends, styles and patterns. However, there are effective tips, tricks and hacks that can be applied to help you find your perfect personal aesthetic. So, don’t worry, with a bit of experimentation and confidence, you’ll be able to discover the style that makes you feel your best!

  1. Consider your style: Think about the kind of clothes you feel most confident in, not comfortable. Our comfort zone sometimes robs us of the chance to dress in our true fashionable style. Are you more of the casual, edgy, classic, or trendy type? Do you like mixing two different aesthetics or just one? Do you like statement clothes or plain simple clothes? Learning or knowing these details will help you lean towards your style, as understanding your style will help you narrow down to your dressing aesthetic and also know what your personal preferences are. Once you understand your style, you’ll find it much easier to define your dressing aesthetic and feel like a total fashionista!
  2. Look for inspiration: Social media and magazines have become tools to discover not just trends but clothing styles. Pinterest has low-key become the best site and app to gather fashion inspiration. Pay attention to the colours, textures, and silhouettes that appeal to you the most.
  3. Consider your lifestyle: Most times the way we behave, act and think affects our style and the way we like to dress. For example, a quiet person may like to dress in simple clothes that don’t put them in the centre of attraction. While a diva or social person will dress in a way that puts them in the spotlight. These little things seem silly, but they are significant.

Think about your daily activities, the places you typically go to, and the kind of events you attend. Your dressing aesthetic should complement your lifestyle and be practical for your everyday activities.

  1. Dress according to your body type: Dressing according to your body type doesn’t just increase and improve your overall look it also makes you look more radiant, beautiful and stylish. Plus, dressing atheistically will flatter your figure the most. Certain styles and silhouettes may look better on different body types, so it’s essential to consider this when choosing your dressing aesthetic.

Note: You can wear anything you want to wear, but dressing according to your body type is just better and more sophisticated.

  1. Experiment with different looks: Try mixing and matching different clothing items and accessories that you like, to see which dressing aesthetic resonates with you the most. Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone and try new styles, as doing this will show you the tiny clothing details you like and prefer.
  2. Consider your colour palette: Do you like wearing bright colours or neutrals? Determine which colours you feel most confident and comfortable wearing and fixate your mindset on that. It’s okay to like black clothes or neutral colours, what matters most is that you’re comfortable, confident and dashing in what you’re wearing. That’s basically what fashion is.
  3. Budget: Different dressing aesthetics may require different wardrobe pieces, so consider your budget and how much you’re willing to invest in building your wardrobe for your chosen aesthetic. For this too, there’s nothing wrong with outfit repeating.
  4. Be true to yourself: Ultimately, your dressing aesthetic should reflect your personality and make you feel good. Yes, there are a thousand and one ways to wear a piece of clothing but there’s only one way. So, keep that in mind anytime you style a piece of clothing.

The most important trick is adding a little bit of confidence to what you’re wearing. You’re stepping out of your dressing comfort zone and it feels scary. It’s okay to be scared as most people are scared of trying new things. Fashion is all about daring new styles and clothing and that’s exactly what you’re doing so there’s no need to feel scared.
