HOW TO CREATE YOUR PERSONAL LOOK | ITSYREGI

GUIDE FOR THE MINIMALIST

This post will be helpful to anyone trying to cull their wardrobe. Today I’m sharing with you my tips to finding your signature style/look. Once you’ve done this,¬†culling your wardrobe will be so easy.

Let’s do this!

 

how to find your personal style

 

1. CHART YOUR LIFESTYLE

Create a lifestyle graph mainly to see what you do during the day. A lifestyle graph will help you see which activity you spend most of your time on. It will also help you find out what style of clothing actually fits your lifestyle. If you have a corporate job, you will mostly have an official style of dressing. If you go to the gym twice a day, you will need a fair amount of workout clothes.

 

2. DESCRIBE YOUR LOOK AND STYLE

Have some describing words to describe your style. Try to narrow it down to about three. That way when you are picking outfits, you can see if they fit the style you are going for. Some describing words you can choose from are: Casual, Chic, Corporate, Eclectic, Retro, Bohemian, Grunge, Classic, Strong, High-end, Soft, Minimal or Futuristic.

I would describe my style as Futuristic, Minimal and Strong.

3. FIND INSPIRATION

Now that you know what style you are going for, it’s time to look for some inspiration. The internet is a great place to start. Sites like Instagram and Pinterest are a great place to find similar styles to yours and get new ideas.

 

4. CHOOSE A COLOR PALETTE

Having a color palette will create uniformity in your wardrobe and style. This will also make it easier to pick out an outfit, because it’s easier to match items together. I recommend having one to two main colors, two to three secondary colors and up to three accent or accessory colors. My main colors are black and white, because they are very adaptable. Grey and beige are my secondary colors. Gold and silver are my chosen accent colors.

5. MATCH YOUR OUTFITS

Sort through your wardrobe and cull out the outfits that you don’t wear anymore or that don’t fit you anymore. Choose clothes that you feel confident and comfortable in. There is no point in owning something if you are not going to wear it.

  1. Interesting style you have.
    Never knew you could breakdown your look in this way.
    Very informative.
    Will try and adopt a thing or two here.
    Thanks Yvonne

      1. I am more of simple dress code. To work I wear official but rarely suits. Only on important meetings. I like quality when it comes to my clothing. I would rather pay more but its a good fabric.
        As for my casual wear its simple. I love polo shirts and khakis. Simple dress code with a pair of sneakers.
        As for my running gear. Its the normal running wear and track suit plus proper running shoes.
        Maybe you can assist in classifying me Yvonne.
