Defining your Style

Hey, Hey!!

In my last  post, I discussed who my style icons are and what about their style led to me adding them. For today, we are going to discuss how to define your own personal style. Defining your personal style is a great way to learn either how you want add or decrease from your closet or how to be more adventurous or help someone be able to style you.  I am all about not reinventing the wheel and I am linking the site where I found this great questionnaire for defining your style. The cool thing about this site is that the blogger actual created a downloadable workbook (only 4 pages, including the cover page) with great questions. I will use this post to give my answers from the questions posed in the workbook. I strongly suggest you download the workbook and see what you discover about your self.


1 |Assess| Describing the Good and the Not-so-Good

1A | How do you feel when you’re wearing a look you really love?

*You are given a list of words, and the author suggests to keep it to 10 words or less.

When I am wearing a look that I really love, these words describe me: attractive, empowered, stylish, at ease, pretty, distinctive, and unique.

1B| How do you feel when you’ve worn something you don’t love?

*You are a given a list of words, and the author suggests to keep it to 10 words or less.

When I am wearing something that I don’t love, these words describe me: frumpy, awkward, plain, too-tight, unsophisticated, unpolished, and self-conscious.

How does the weather impact your style and what is your typical mode of transport?

If  is raining or otherwise dreary,  my clothing choices aren’t likely to change but shoes are more likely to be toned down, i.e., the color and/or appearance and just go with simple shoes that will keep my feet from getting wet. If the sun is out and shining, I’m more likely to dress in brighter colors and accessories. My typical mode of transport is a car.
