Fashion & Style: How to Dress Like You: Personal Style


I am a huge advocate for personal style. I feel it is important to be yourself and wear genuine outfits that can express who you are as well. Knowing the differences between fashion and style will help you dress like you.

Fashion can be defined as a popular trend especially in ways of dressing, ornament, and behavior. Style is defined as a consistent and comfortable mode of existence. Anyone can be fashionable by becoming a slave to the newest trends but style is something that one must possess, and becoming aware of your own personal style sets you apart from the rest.
Many famous fashion designers have been quoted for their thoughts on the subject as well. Yves Saint Laurent says, "Fashions fade, style is eternal." Ralph Lauren says, "Style is very personal. It has nothing to do with fashion. Fashion is over quickly. Style is forever." Rachel Zoe also says, "Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak."

As simple as it sounds is as simple as it is. Become aware of your personal interests and what inspires you and don't be afraid to experiment and wear what you want. That is my biggest tip here. Wear what you want. Don't let the opinion's of others affect what you like. Remember, there are no real rules when it comes to this. Wear white after Labor Day because you love the way you look in white. Wear thigh high boots because you think they're awesome. Find your signature go-to pieces and get them in every color if you want. You make the rules!


At the end of the day, you are in charge of what you wear. All the advice from fashion magazines, celebrity stylists, and bloggers like myself are just suggestions and helpful tools. No one knows you better than yourself and knowing who you are is the biggest step into knowing who you want to become. Or in this case, knowing how you want to dress! Wear what YOU feel most comfortable in.

Have fun creating a wardrobe that speaks for you!
