When it comes to developing our personal style, many of us fashion-lovers struggle. The thing about fashion is that it makes us want to follow the trends and dress just like everyone else. However, if you want to be chic and stylish, it’s essential that you develop your own personal style. The great thing about creating your own sense of style is that you can shape your wardrobe in whatever way you like. This doesn’t mean forgoing all the newest trends. It just means being choosy about what you wear and how you dress. To help you develop your style and create a wardrobe that you love, I thought that I would share a few tips.
First things first, you need to get inspiration. With so many stylish looks to choose from, it’s easy to struggle when it comes to selecting the perfect one. The simplest way to make this easier is by choosing a celebrity for style inspiration. Models and celebrities make ideal style icons. As often, they opt to showcase a variety of looks and styles.

Ideally, your style icon should be someone who is a similar dress size to you and has the same body shape. When it comes to selecting a style icon, your body shape is important as we each look good in different types of outfits. So you need to choose someone to follow who’s outfits would work well for you. If you’re stuck for ideas, go on Pinterest and have a browse, and you should be able to find some inspiration. Instagram can also be great for style inspiration. Once you find your style icon, follow their account and check out all their best looks.
Create a capsule wardrobe
Once you’ve got the inspiration that you need, the next step is to start shopping. Instead of buying various items and spending hundreds, opt for a capsule wardrobe. Ask any stylist the best way to look amazing without overspending and they’ll tell you that a capsule wardrobe is the perfect option. The key to success when it comes to capsule wardrobes is choosing a range of clothes in neutral tones that can be mixed and matched.
Of course, as well as consisting of a range of clothes, your capsule wardrobe should also include a selection of accessories. To brighten up your look, accessories like bright, bold scarves and stylish shoes are crucial. Oh, and don’t forget to invest in a few chic pieces of jewelry for adding extra elegance to your look.
