If you ask me to define my style in one word or even one sentence, I would probably choke. Truth be told, I don’t confine myself to only one.
In my teens I went through every fashion phase possible, as many of you might have as well. My influences for a while were Avril Lavigne, Fergie and Shakira to name a few. I cringe looking back at some photos, but that “experimental” period helped shape my fashion sense and clearing up not only what I like and what I don’t like, but also what suits me and what doesn’t.
Why then don’t I have a single style? If you take a look at my older fashion posts, even though they have some things in common, you realize that I don’t have that one defined style. Sometimes I like to dress up like a boho chic gal, where other times I go for more formal attire.
What I can definitely say about my fashion sense is that I’m more of a minimalist when it comes to my looks. I like patterns and colors, but nothing overly complicated. I like mixing it up, but I also like following certain color schemes. I usually tend to gravitate towards simpler cuts and forms, because I feel they don’t overwhelm me. Being a tiny gal I feel overly complicated outfits, like lots of ruffles, patterns or colors, make me look even tinier. I personally always preferred simplicity not only in my outfits, but in other esthetic aspects in my life (my hair, makeup, home decor, etc…)
Because for me fashion is a tool for self expression, I don’t want to be confined in one style. My mood and energy changes on a daily basis, and I feel my style should reflect that. I like being all girly in my pink sun dress, but I also love my boyfriend jeans and my rather manly sneakers. You guys know how big my love for red lipstick is, but recently I’ve been rocking grungy brown lips like the 90’s are back!
Some people have one style that defines and suits them like no other, and others have many. I’m definitely one of those “others”. As I grow older, my style is in a constant state of change. Maybe one day I’ll settle for a single style… but knowing myself, I doubt it! Plus where’s the fun in that?
I’d love to hear from you and your experiences. Do you have one style? Or are you like me and rather try them all? Let me know!
