When it comes to personal style, it’s all about knowing yourself, what items work for your body type, what colors look great on your skin tone and your lifestyle.
If you’re having trouble finding your personal style, think about a person whose style you admire. Figure out what you love about their style and implement it into your personal style. It’s totally fine to be inspired by someone but never copy his or her entire look because that’s not being true to who you are.
Finding your personal style doesn’t have to be expensive. Here’s a complete price break down of my look:
Blue Blouse: $20 from H&M.
Flared Skirt: On sale for $9.99 at Forever 21.
Pumps: $28 Lola Shoetique
Handbag: $40 from H&M
Fur Jacket: On Sale for $40 from a boutique in New Orleans on Magazine St.
This entire look was less than $140. The secret is to invest in key pieces. You don’t have to spend a lot to look & feel fabulous.
Tip: Before purchasing an item you should be able to think of at least 3 different ways it can be worn.
The cream fur jacket can be worn dressed up like I’m wearing here or dressed down with a pair of jeans, pumps and a handbag. Flare skirt can be worn with a denim top and a pair of flats for more of a chill relaxed look & the blue blouse can go with just about any bottom from slacks to jeans. It’s all about remixing your pieces and maximizing your wardrobe.
This is a great look to wear to Sunday brunch after church or to a fashion show. The styling options are unlimited. Stay tuned to see how I elevated this look just by adding a few key pieces.
