Do you have your own personal style? I hope you do because having your own personal style really helps in a lot of ways.
For instance: you will always know what outfits fit you comfortably, what to wear and what not to wear. And because of this knowledge, you are actually able to determine how you spend on dressing up. It then becomes very easy to stick to a budget.
I remember sometimes back when I went thrifting and came home with a bag full of clothes: very trendy, affordable and needed washing and ironing. This has never been an issue for me so I did that the following day. I was so happy to have landed such a huge bargain at the market since I’m very good at haggling for sure.
Anyway, I realized that as I started wearing the clothes, some of them actually ceased to impress me. That was when I started giving them away. Well, it’s never bad to give away but coming to think of it, why did I even buy a lot than I’d actually wear? I think I was just too spendthrift. And I’m certain that most of us usually are.
That was when I sat down and decided to learn my style so that when I’d go shopping, I’d only buy an outfit that solely falls under my style. And for a long time now, I’ve been able to control my spending on clothes, ensuring that I purchase only what impresses me and what I’ll wear for a long time to come.

So, for my personal style, I’m chic,artsy and sophisticated!
Those three words fully describe my style. When you are learning your style, just coin a three-word rule that will fully describe it. It’s easier to go with a one-word rule but for someone who is very adventurous with dressing like me, and most of us, then a three-word rule is always best.
Thus, when I’m out shopping, I’ll look at the cost of an outfit and see if it falls within my budget. If it does, I’ll go ahead and determine if its design impresses me and if it does, I’ll then determine what can easily be paired with it to achieve my style. All this has been made easy by true to my three-word rule.
Anyway, let’s look into my style:
Talk about chic style and talk about an outfit that adds a touch of feminism to your whole look. Basically, the look brings out your womanly side and also comes out as timeless and very classy.
Chic style will be reflected right from how you do your color coordination as you dress up to how you finish up with accessories. As a chic fashionista, I’ll go for being whimsical most of the times although monochromatic pieces are such a hit for me too!
When it comes to being WHIMSICAL….
I love having fun with my dressing and portraying confidence with a bright sense of style. Whimsical style entails playful prints, patterns, colors, textures, accessories and statement fashion pieces. Basically, if your style is whimsical, you’ll always have that one piece or that strong color as part of your look that is absolutely striking!
Frankly, my closet is colorful. I don’t think you’d miss any bold color in it as much as neutrals are present. And also, you’ll find a couple types of prints and florals in there. I love being quizzical!
So today, I went for my detailed pencil skirt. If you’re looking for a way to inject a feminine movement in your wardrobe, then add some zippers and slits in your wardrobe and you’ll be the Tropical Temptress around! How perfect for a getaway in summer!
What is artsy style?
As the name suggests, artsy style invokes a level of creativity by the person. Usually, as much as I purchase ready-made clothes, I’m very careful with how I choose them to ensure I’m getting a piece that will make a statement when I dress it up or down. Usually, my style is as dramatic as possible.
Many at times, my friends ask me where I get my clothes from since I usually pair them very differently. For example: since I’m slim, I’ve come to absolutely appreciate oversized fashion. So I tend to go for larger tops than me and pair with a skinny bottom or thigh highs. They absolutely love how I play around with large tops you bet!
Anyway, for today, I wore this bat top. I really love how dramatic this top is with so much details: from the bat sleeves to the high-neck design! Wohoo!Good enough, grey can be so luxurious.
Such a pair for my high wasted front-zipper skirt that screams of sass ,right? The pair absolutely impressed me.
Wohoo! This is what most of us love! Going sophisticated!
Sophisticated style simply stands for fine pieces of outfit that are polished and have quality. But a word of caution is that sophisticated style portrays modesty.
As well, the colors in your outfit should perfectly coordinate to make it more polished. But if you are having trouble relating the colors to one another, then try subtle colors or neutrals, subtle prints and patterns too.
Even if you’re the poorest fashionista around, you can hardly go wrong with sophisticated style. I mean, if you just layer that sleek camel coat over your outfit, won’t you look instantly gorgeous? Or if you got that pair of velvet thigh high boots, don’t you expect to run heads as you walk by?
Then that’s it! You got it! You rock it when sophisticated! You got that eye for quality!

So yeah, you now know the easiest ways to going sophisticated but I actually prefer rocking my outerwear! Macy Stucke will rock a camel coat over her denim shorts, Maria Vizuette will comfortably layer a faux coat over her jeans while Lucia Musau will perfectly adorn in an Ankara kimono! The power of layering elegantly though!
But mind you, sophisticated style will also show through your makeup, manicure, pedicure, skin and hair since all these should look effortlessly pleasing. When it comes to makeup, keep it subtle. To your hair, dress it up with the jewels or hair accessories. Try to keep your jewelry to a minimum to look appropriate and classic. Depending on the occasion, dress up with jewelry.
So yeah, the dramatic top was sophisticated enough. You agree, right? As well, I chose a statement pair of earrings for my accessories. I love it!
Well, that’s my style! Chic, artsy and sophisticated!
