You may have seen on this site I extend the name of my blog as Tanya’s style chronicles, and it is not in vein. My blog is a place where I share my thoughts with all of you and main topics are fashion and style. As you will get to know me, I would like to get know you too. I think that to talk about the personal style would be an interesting topic. How did you find your style? What it is style and do you consider yourself as stylish?
Well, as for me, the style includes many things, and it is certainly not only about the clothes. I would say that style is a personalized fashion, which is used as an everyday mode of appearance customized by the unique personality. Sometimes style is both: a projection of your inner self and how you want to be perceived. But in fact, it is quite difficult to find a right balance between all those in-and-out reflections.
Every minute we are hunted by an enormous flow of the information about constantly changing trends. It is so easy to get lost on the way to the true yourself. I cannot even imagine how difficult it can be while you are still discovering who you are. I am not an exception, periodically I feel myself that sort of social pressure about the way I dress too. But I think I figured out the essentials of my personal style. I know what clothes makes me feel good and confident, and just play with the rest. What I know for sure, I love feminine touch, so my style is the mix of elegancy and comfort.
In my humble opinion, one of the best ways to find your style is to ask yourself the right questions. I am sure that none of the famous stylist or well-dressed personas wouldn’t have the same success if they had not had known those answers.
So my advice is here: start with replying to these three questions and the rest will entail:
- What do you do ?
- What do you like ?
- What fits you best?
So try on, mix and match, combine and experiment! You will see that style is what works for you; style is showing who you are, style is taking a risk, and style is the confidence.
Here are my favorite quotes about style, I totally agree. Do you?
“Fashion changes, but style endures.” ― Coco Chanel
“Fashions fade, style is eternal.” ― Yves Saint-Laurent
“Why change? Everyone has his own style. When you have found it, you should stick to it.” ― Audrey Hepburn
