A chunky statement necklace, a bright color scheme, the continuous wear of dresses—it is no surprise that each piece of an outfit solely reflect your personal style and all of the genuine uniqueness of your personality. It’s been said for decades that the best way to express ourselves and our personalities and emotions is through fashion, and this continuously proves to be true. The most important part of expressing yourself through fashion is knowing the right way to present certain pieces and the appropriate timing to display these charismatic pieces.
Start with accessories
The key to dressing to express your own personal style and personality is to know when to pick subtle clothing options and when to play it up completely. For example, if you are in a more professional atmosphere and you have a very humorous and fun personality, wearing an inappropriate graphic tee with you work attire is probably not the best way to show off your fun, happy-go-lucky attitude. In these scenarios, the best way to express your self is through simple accessories.
A fun watch or scarf is the best way to flaunt your joyful spirit. The company Swatch Watch makes really affordable watches in bright, fun prints—perfect for the fun, comic girl at the office. The weekends and other days off are the perfect opportunity to flaunt your comic apparel in style.
Wear items that are “you”
Typically, it is very simple to dress according to your personality. You typically pick out things that you like and that reflect your personal preferences and lifestyle. Colors are a great way to display your personality and even how you are feeling. Extroverts and those with bold personalities tend to veer towards bright colors and patterns to reflect their personality and individual style. People with laid-back mentalities stick to basics and neutrals—both are casual and easy-going pieces.
Look to style icons for inspiration
Think of a celebrity or fashion icon you admire. Use style tips and their pictures for inspiration to put together outfits that help best reflect who you are as a person and how you want to be perceived. A lot of people choose to mimic and recreate the classic, feminine looks of Audrey Hepburn or Jackie Kennedy. Both Jackie and Audrey are iconic influences in the fashion industry, and both dressed in a way that is timeless and never will go out of style.
When choosing certain pieces to create an outfit, always remember that the way you dress and present yourself is how you want the rest of the world to perceive you. Simple accessorizing is sometimes all that is necessary to reflect your personality when in the workplace, but any other time, the world is your fashion playground. So dress to best express who you are, and know to what extent you need display this unique personality. Don’t stray away from experimenting with looks and mixing up colors and patterns. There is no wrong way to do fashion—it is a beautiful, ever-changing aspect of the world that has no rights and no wrongs.
