Now if you ask me, personal style is the flair and finesse that each of us posses that makes us uniquely different. The things that make us stand out in the crowd. Things like your choice of clothing, the way you style your hair, the way you walk and even your energy. Pinpointing your personal style is an everchanging mission seeing as sometimes our style adapts and changes depending on the day. But for the most part, it’s just learning how to nail an outward definition of who you are....
First let’s talk about clothes. I feel like the way you dress says a lot about your personal style. As I’ve mentioned numerous times before, my personal style is always cute and comfy. I’m very rarely here for the whole “Beauty is Pain” thing lol. On any given day you can catch me in leggings or sweats with some type of graphic tee or plain shirt. I don’t do too much, but I do enough. And when it’s time to slay, please know I’m bringing it lol. See the thing with personal style is, you can’t really go wrong with the right amount of confidence. You pick piece that make you feel super cute and confident and you’re guaranteed to shine. It’s always a good idea to experiment with different looks and pieces because you never know what may work.
Moving right along, hair is a #MajorKey. I’m a member of the #SameGirlDifferentHair tribe so my hairstyles are ever changing, but do what works for you. A lot of folks have a signature hairstyle or hair color that makes them stand out and is a staple in their personal style and brand. Take Olori Swank of Swank Blue for instance. She’s been rocking blue hair for 10+ years now. She took a hair fluke and turned it into a trademark look. Claire Sulmers of Fashion Bomb Daily is always a blonde bombshell, no matter the hairstyle. But again, it’s all in the confidence. I feel like if your hair is making a grand statement, you’re already winning 75% of the battle. Im a hair girl, I can’t help it
Energy is like the ultimate personal style and personal brand key, if you ask me. You can look fly and have everything together but if the energy isn’t right, ya losing. I’m sure you’ve met someone before that may have looked like a great package on the outside but the energy was just alllllllll wrong. It’s important that we are always mindful of the energy we’re giving off and make sure it’s coming from a real place. We can’t be all “Hey Girl Hey” on IG and “What you lookin’ at” in real life lol
At the end of the day, if you start with high confidence and mix it with some great energy, then dress it up and make it real for ‘em..... You’re winning. Do what works for you and don’t feel pressured to trend chase because that’s what’s popular. As always, take what you need and leave what you don’t for your neighbor! Peace, Love & Light!
