4 Steps to finding your personal style

Tracy Gold gives her top tips to discovering and creating a style that is unique to you.

Creating your own personal style is the number one trend at the moment. Not sure how to go about it? 

Here are my top tips to inspire you:

Select the trends you really like. 

Some trends will suit you more than others. If the ‘rock chic’ look is just not you, then leave that one and embrace the ‘retro 70’s’ look that feels like a second skin.  Your look should be an outer reflection of who you are, so select accordingly.

Make it your own. 

To avoid looking like a walking trend, use the trends you like to create your own look.You can bring in aspects of a look without wearing it in it’s entirety. 

For example, if you love the feminine 1930’s look, wear a vintage lacy top with modern cut pair of jeans or vintage jewelry with a modern dress.

Mix it up. 

Who says you have to select one trend or even one trend at a time. Mix it up and have fun with it. 

Contradiction is bang on trend.  Mix leather and lace, masculine with feminine or sporty with chic. 

Change your look to suit your mood. 

You may need to dress a certain way for work, but it doesn’t mean you can’t have a completely different look for the weekends. If you wear sophisticated, chic clothing for work, try funky grunge for the weekend. 

Why not? Use clothing to reflect the various aspects of who you are within the different roles you play.

Wear what suits your shape. 

No matter what look you create, wear what suits your shape. If you are unsure of what suits you best, consider a session with a personal stylist to get you on track. 

The cost of the session will be cheaper than buying a whole lot of clothing you will never wear.
