From Mom’s Fashion Picks to Your Own Picks

Do you remember when our parents used to pick out our outfits for church or a family event? Even though we spent half of the time complaining and in tears. You were given the opportunity to pick out your own clothes then you’re definitely God’s favourite.
Fast forward to today, and you’re left with the task of discovering your own style. You wear clothes every day but is it your style? We know we’ve found out style when it’s a reflection of who we are. Those days when our parents were the fashion decision-makers. While it was convenient, it didn’t leave much room for self-expression. As we grew older, the desire to explore our individuality started to grow as well. We realized that we’re unique, and our style should reflect that.
Finding your own style is like finding your fashion identity. It’s about discovering what makes you feel comfortable, confident, and, most importantly, like yourself. When we dress in a way that resonates with our personality, it’s like wearing our self-esteem on our sleeve. Plus, what’s more fun than that?
Here’s how we discovered our style.

Go through that closet: Start by digging through your closet. Identify the pieces that you naturally gravitate toward. These are the ones that make you feel fantastic. We keep them in the “winners” section of your closet.

Experiment Shamelessly: Remember how Mom used to tell you that stripes and polka dots don’t go together? Well, there are no more rules to this game. Mix and match with confidence. Try new combinations, and don’t be afraid to break a few fashion norms. Sometimes, the most unexpected pairings create the coolest looks.

Pinterest is Our BFF: If you’re not sure where to begin, Pinterest is literally our style-savvy best friend. There’s no style that we can’t find on there and we’re also able to create our own style board, pinning outfits that catch our eye. Over time, you’ll notice patterns in the styles and colors you’re drawn to.

Window Shopping (Online Counts Too): Visit boutiques, thrift stores, or scroll through online shops and pay attention to what catches your eye. Even if we don’t buy anything, this window shopping exercise helps us refine our taste.

Own It with Confidence: The most stylish people aren’t always the ones who follow the latest trends. They’re the ones who confidently rock what makes them unique.
We also love to follow our favourite fashion influencers that dress up how we would like to. Finding your style is an ongoing adventure, much like life itself. So, take your time, have fun with it, and don’t be afraid to evolve as your tastes change. Our wardrobe should be a reflection of our ever-evolving self.
