What exactly is style?
Although it means different things to different people, and it would take forever to debate what makes a person stylish, it comes down to what suits you. It is the look of confidence that shines through your clothing.
Everyone should have a style that’s all their own. Yes, it is important to stay up-to-date on what is trendy. Then take those trends and adapt them to your own style. Never do the reverse. If you already have a style that’s not sending out the right message, don’t be afraid to change it. Just go for it. Change the way you look and see what the response is. Once you find a look that really works well for you, keep it. Use it from morning through evening with slight modifications. I got my look “right” after years of trial and error, I guess. Ha ha. I am a casual person, and when I tempted to stray from that look, I always ended up looking overdone. It made me feel uncomfortable. My new look is less time-consuming and is a style that I can use even at the most formal occasion.
