The Key to Creating Your Personal Fashion Style

by Claire Ashley

When you stay true to your personal style, you'll be standing out for the right reasons. Your style is part of your personal brand - your way of showing up in the world.

Standing out in business is easy when you align with your unique brand. But when it comes to fashion, it can be a bit challenging. Just one more thing to add to the busy entrepreneur's to-do list!

Tired of being bombarded with fashion suggestions from different shows, magazines and advertisements? Those suggestions might be terrific for some, and totally wrong for others.  So forget all the advice that might not be a fit for your personal style, and check out the tips below.

Dress to showcase your natural style

Start by choosing the clothes that best compliment your features. Get to know about your body type and then dress to accentuate it. Whether your style is quirky, "boho" chic, dressed down or dressed up - it's all about feeling good in your own skin.

Clear out unnecessary items

Screen your closet for the unnecessary items: such as outdated outfits or items you no longer wear.  Donate them or give them away to friends/family. Clear your closet and make room for new items that are a fit for your style right now.

Wisely choose the color of your clothing 

Colors are very important and can accent an outfit. For instance, if you prefer dark colors, a bright scarf can add style. Accessories can make an older outfit look fresher and updated (just in case you can't bear to part with your older items). Not sure which colors look best on you? Here are a few tips for finding the right colors for your skin tone.

Do not over-accessorize

As Coco Chanel rightly said, "Get yourself fully dressed and then, before walking out of the front door, pause by the mirror and remove one item." Always keep in mind that simplicity is the key to a stylish look.

Keep it simple. For instance, a pearl necklace, a ring or a cute belt can pull your outfit together in an exceptional way.
