I had absolutely no sense of style. So I wanted to know how to find a sense of style. Okay no, but I had absolutely no idea what my sense of style was. There are multiple ways to try and determine what your style is, but I found only one that truly worked for me. Online quizzes about your ‘personality type’, cutting out pictures from magazines, picking out what items you like most and finding a theme. None of these worked for me in the slightest. I’m a bohemian girly hipster, what? Then I decided I would give Pinterest a try.
I created a board and looked up women’s fashion, or home decor. I collected groups of outfits, hairstyles, fluffy pillows, anything that I liked. Later I would, after collecting a lot of different images go through them and removed the ones I reconsidered. I’d think about why I liked them. The theme became very obvious after time. I like neutral colours, limited patterns and often a cool tone colour palette. I ended up learning a lot about myself, and maybe it could work for someone else.
Tip #1 Join Pinterest. If you are going to create a board you need to make an account first. It is super straight forward. If you don’t like getting emails you can easily unsubscribe from them.
Tip #2 Use Your Closet. Look at the pieces that you already have in your closet to start if you are overwhelmed. I love my jeans, dark wash high waisted skinny jeans. I searched it up and would save to a board all the outfits I loved. From there you can see similar images related to it.
Tip #3 Use Your Friends. This has a double meaning. You can follow your friends and draw inspiration from them. And, you can also see what outfits you like that they have worn and save similar photos.
I hope this helps for how to find a sense of style.
