In light of the a-mazing fashion week designs that have captivated our TV screens and almost every social media platform, I thought it fitting that I touch on this topic. It can take a while for one to define their style, a look that is undeniably unique to you. It could be the way you wear accessorise or how you manipulate colour and patterns. We all have our style inspirations but there’s nothing better than having a look that is completely unique to you. I believe that before you speak your appearance and aura have already spoken and what you wear says A LOT about you. Personally your style is the fashion ‘signature’ you leave in the minds of others. It’s part of your bespoke brand. The dictionary definition calls style ‘a distinctive appearance, typically determined by the principles according to which something is designed.’ To have style requires an element of boldness, it says no matter what others think this is what I am and what I stand for and I choose to express it in my attire.
My style is classic, I love a pure silk scarf, a crisp white shirt, a good quality pair of jeans and a well made blazer (gosh I sound like a 40 year old lol) but this is my style and one that I am proud of. The classic look never goes out of fashion and is just as strong a statement as the on-trend patterns and cuts we see on catwalks today. Some of my favourite high street brands are French Connection, Reiss and Banana Republic because (for me) they get it right every season with effortlessly sheek style that can easily be re-worked for a day or evening look.
Many people don’t like telling others where they purchased items of clothings or shoes for fear that their ‘style’ may be imitated but the reality is that when you really have a style that stands out its rather difficult to emulate and someone who has style will always strive to take an item and transform it anyway, so I happily share where I buy items from (unless I am totally sure the person will wear it reaalllyyy badly)…kidding! (not kidding lol)
So even if you love the way Rihanna rocks wide-leg trousers or the way Beyonce wore her kimono on holiday, there’s nothing wrong with purchasing something similar but make it your own. We are all created to be beautifully unique and we have the creativity to do so. Embrace who you are and let it flow in your own special way 🙂
Until next time, have a fab weekend!…
