Simple. Sophisticated. Classy.
If you ask me right this moment to describe my style, these three words would be my response. It hasn’t changed much over the years, but only to evolve to what I now call my signature look. It’s a phrase that describes me not only in fashion, but in all aspects of my life.
“I will NOT conform! I will NOT get in formation!”
I was ranting to my sisters a few months back, and these were my exact words after expressing how today’s fashion feels very repetitive, as if we are all clones of each other when it comes to personal style. (I was a bit dramatic in my rant haha!) When I look around me, I see much of the same styles everywhere I go. Don’t get me wrong, that is absolutely fine, as everyone is entitled to their preference. But, I love to see when a person expresses their individuality through their personal style rather than following what’s on trend at the moment. I’ve had persons think my style is boring (yes, I’ve been told that to my face), and I’m quite okay with that. Personal style is something that should be unique to a person and it evolves with them over time. It’s a form of self-expression and identity. When I see a person dressing what society deems to be eclectic or weird, I instead admire that person as they are being their authentic selves. That, to me, is true personal style.
I’d love to hear your thoughts. How would you describe your style?
