“Personal style is accepting who you are”
You know when your scrolling through the archive of your favourite blogs and you find a post that you want to take influence from/ expand upon…this is one of those posts. The original post that influenced this one? > Find Your Personal Style by Simply Abbi and it got me thinking about the ways in which I’d found and developed my own personal style throughout the years
I don’t have one particular style that I stick to, I’m very much the kind of person that will buy an item of clothing because I like it and feel confident in it, and not necessarily because it is in fashion. Now it’s taken me a while to actually love going shopping for clothing, or to try out new styles and things that are more ‘on trend’ due to a lack of confidence about my body…which I still have from time to time.
Over the years my style has changed and developed, more so for the better. No longer am I dressing in black skinny jeans and men’s t-shirts with high top Lee Coopers
yep I had the emo phase that everyone goes through at like 14/15(no hate if that’s your personal style, it just never suited me) then after that was the phase of only wearing those £5 Primark skater dresses because I thought that skinny jeans and trousers made me look fat…even though I was a lot slimmer than I am now. After that phase I went to high waisted skinny jeans with a basic top and Doc Martins..now I’m still a massive lover of this style but I certainly mix it up a lot more.
Nowadays I wouldn’t say I have a specific style, I tend to just buy pieces I like and rock them. At the moment I am loving wearing tailored trousers though, my obsession started in the summer and has stuck around since…they’re just so much more comfortable than jeans, but still look completely stylish. Now when it comes to colour and prints I have recently started to play around a lot more with both, I no longer stick to a strictly monochrome wardrobe. Instead I now have quite a few pops of blue, red, green and mustard and I’m loving it. Although it does now take longer to put an outfit together somethimes but it is most certainly worth it.

So would you say you’re someone that has their own personal style, or do you just stick with the trends?
