When picking out your outfits and buying clothes, pick what YOU like and not just what the girls at school are wearing. Developing your own personal style is very important. Don't just wear all of the big trends or what your friends are wearing. Keep in mind, I'm not saying that you should just ignore all of the trends. I believe that you should still pay attention to what's in style, just don't let that define you. I'm also not telling you to go buy a whole new wardrobe of stuff because everything in your closet is what other people like. Be creative and work with what you already have. Wear what makes you happy and don't care what other people think! Once I started doing that I realized it's a lot easier than working to please someone with what you wear every day.
Your style doesn't have to be defined by one word or category. Just work to make it your own. Be original! For example, my personal style is a huge mix. I would say it's about 50% classic, while the other half is a mixture of girly, vintage, indie and glam. That's five things. I would love love love to hear about what your personal style consists of! Tell me what it includes, send me pictures of your original outfits or tell me about when you realized you should just wear what you want. Email me or tell me in the comments. This was just an introduction to this subject. I will be posting more on the different categories of this like finding what you really like, the different types of style, and more!
