Why Create A Signature Style?

Having a signature style can help increase both your self-confidence and your individuality. You’ll be a fashion icon in your social circles and be instantly recognizable to others. It is also a pretty easy way to know what looks good on you, and a great way to utilize more of your wardrobe.

Many of us enjoy putting outfits together and determining what to wear each day, but this requires some time. There are some mornings when we wake up in a rush and put on the first things we can grab.

Having a signature style will have your back on these days, and any other day where you have less energy or less time to choose your clothes.

When you know what looks good on you, it is effortless to grab what you like and go. So, it is pretty beneficial to do the work upfront and then reap the benefits in the long-term. Now that we know why a signature style is so beneficial, let’s talk about how you can start creating your very own style.

Signature Style Key: Wear What Makes You Feel Good

While this might seem obvious, it is so important to wear what you–individually–prefer. Society’s definition of beauty is constantly changing, and fashion trends switch up even faster. Make sure to find items that make you feel good.

Do not simply choose options based on what society tells you you should wear.

Of course, there are some pretty useful recommendations on the types of clothes you can get. Creating a signature style involves finding clothes that minimize or maximize your best assets. For different body shapes, certain clothes will look better than others. For example, if you have an apple body type, most of your weight lies in your midsection. Thus, you should look for clothes that highlight your arms and legs and draw less attention to your midsection.

Taking a look at some of those recommendations can help you get on track and figure out what you like. However, that doesn’t mean that they are the end-all-be-all of your style. You do not need to avoid buying things–or even get rid of clothing–just because someone told you it’s not right for you. If you are an apple shape and want to show off your tummy, go for it!

The beauty of having a signature style is that you can decide what works for you and your personal look. Wearing what makes you feel good is not only about confidence, but also what makes you feel good physically. In creating your signature style, it is great to have comfortable, simple clothing that you can count on each day. As you will see, your signature look is more about building on everyday looks than the clothes themselves.

Create A Capsule Wardrobe

Whether you love the clothes you already have in your closet or not, the capsule wardrobe helps define your signature look. One of the best ways to create a signature style is to have a capsule wardrobe that you can pull from and go back to. Typically, a capsule wardrobe is going to be something that you change with each season.

The concept of a capsule wardrobe is that you can mix and match any combination of clothing within it, and achieve an effortlessly put-together looking outfit. There are several incredible resources out there on how you can create a capsule wardrobe if it is really something you are interested in.

To sum it up, you want to go for the basics. Moreover, your wardrobe should stick to a color scheme that both works with your clothing and looks good on you. From there, you can add signature pieces on top. Having a capsule wardrobe will really help tie everything together. 

Always Add A Signature Touch

A signature style does not even have to involve clothing. Your personal touch can be as simple as always wearing the same jewelry, lipstick color, or even a signature perfume each day. All of these are things that make you instantly recognizable. In addition to being recognizable, you will still stand out in the crowd.

Another signature touch could be wearing a specific nail color that you love every day. For example, the queen of England actually only wears the color ‘Ballet Slippers’ by Essie. You, too, can choose a color that works for you. You can keep painting your nails, or switch it up if you are feeling bold.

Similarly, you can always do your hair in a certain way every day. If you like variety, maybe there is a specific hair clip that you embellish yourself with, regardless of the style you have on.

At the end of the day, it is so important that we have our own individual style–whatever that style may be. Your signature style can change with the seasons and over the years. The most essential component to any beauty article is that you feel good about yourself. The ability to express yourself through your signature style is something that should be both truly fun and personal. In other words, do not listen to any outside comments when creating your look. The entire point of having a signature style is to separate yourself from the rest, so it truly does not matter what anyone else has to say. Hopefully, this article gives you some inspiration and ideas on how to create your own, signature look–whatever that look may be.
