Yes, style is important, but is not a life or death matter. Have fun, play with things, do unthoughts combinations. Remember, there are no rules. Try new things and if you are not comfortable with how something went one day, well, then try something else next day.
Observe, study, why not? copy
You are not inventing anything. There are tons of articles, blogs, twitter and Instagram accounts, etc. from where you can get ideas. Get informed about what’s new, what is going on in the fashion business. There is nothing wrong with taking some combinations out of the style of a movie star or an influencer you admire, you have to start somewhere and they actually want that. That’s why designers want them to use their works, so people like you and I buy the same.
Now, remember that this is just for starting, the point of this is to develop your sense of style so you can later choose whatever suits you best.
We’ve said that the are no rules, and that’s true, but let’s just say that there are a few basics tricks to make everything easier. One of those little basic tricks is to have some regular, not at all extravagant clothes that will make the others stuffs more striking. We are talking about some classic jeans or some soft colored pants and shirts. This way, when you use your statement piece it won’t have to compete with anything else in your outfit and all the attention will go right where is intended to go
Final touch: accessories
Accessories are the cherry on the cake. But be careful, you don’t want to have more than one statement piece so you have to decide if the accessory will be the star of your outfit or a complement.
In conclusion, do it for you, play with it, imitate, have 5 to 10 statement pieces and combine with accessories and you’ll be on your way to having developed your own sense of style
