Personal Style & Favorite Fashion Bloggers

Personal Style & My fav Bloggers
18.04.17

Today I want to talk about personal style. I wouldn't say I have a specific style, as I tend to gravitate to whichever 'style' I feel like wearing that particular day. Today I'll be dressed like a plain-Jane and tomorrow 90's chic, the next day edgy or street style, some days girly and others sporty.
For many finding 'your' personal style is not easy; as we tend to follow current trends and they may not work for everyone, but in saying so the best way to determine your style is by trying out different cuts, shades and 'styles' to see which suits you best and makes you feel good. Check social media to gain inspiration from, like Pinterest and Instagram. Go through your closet for similar pieces and work with what you have and create your personal style from there without totally copying someone else's outfit but taking inspiration from it and making it your own. 

Five tips to finding your personal style:

1.Style icons who's fashion inspires you- Follow their blogs and social media's to see their different outfits and how they style different pieces and take inspiration from it.
2.Beauty and hair are important- Personal style is not just about the clothing but the hair and beauty as well, as they are factors which contribute to your style as a whole and polishes the entire look. 
3.'Repeat' pieces- Take note of pieces you tend to grab often. These are items you can work around  and incorporate into your new fashion icon inspired style. These are items you love and feel comfortable in.
4.Signature- Find your signature piece like a biker jacket, red lipstick, wavy hair etc. Then making sure it is well incorporated into your look to complete you personal style.
5.Instinct- And finally trust your instinct and wear what you feel works and makes you feel great! 



Here are a few influencers that I follow (both local and international) and take style inspiration from adding to my personal 'style'

The important thing to remember is Inner beauty, because without it; outer beauty is nothing, if we are 'ugly' on the inside. So always be you, there is only one you and you are the best you!

1 Peter 3:3-4

'Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.'

Have an amazing blessed week further!

God Bless
