Find your personal style
In the fashion industry, “personal style,” or “style” is the way an individual expresses themselves through aesthetic choices such as their clothing, accessories, hairstyle, and the way they put an outfit together. Style is timeless.
“What you wear is how you present yourself to the world, especially today when human contacts are so quick. Fashion is instant language.” – Miuccia Prada
Classic - MEN & WOMEN
Classic style is the most common style known. But classic means something different to every person. It is often misunderstood as it’s easy to keep wearing the same clothes you’ve had for years and years and call it ‘classic’. But that is not what it is, as this style means staying modern, incorporating trends from time to time, and keeping a well-edited closet of pieces that fit you perfectly. Classic dressing should feel authentic to you and should allow you the peace of mind to invest in pieces that you’ll wear over and over again. You can find out ‘How to invest well’ on our previous blog post.
One thing to be cautious of with a classic look is going boring or plain. In order to be truly classic you must focus on fit, tailoring and the details.
Romantic/ Vintage - WOMEN
Romantic Vintage style remind us 19th century when the fashion was about quality & delicate fabrics. Also inspired ‘retro’ / ’vintage’, usually refers to clothing that imitates the style of a previous era or refers to merchandise that was withdrawn from sale.
Rock’n’roll - MEN & WOMEN
Back 50 years ago, rock stars were the world’s style influencers. Each new sound, from glam to punk to metal to grunge, brought a new look and new tribes who clamoured for its key pieces. From leather jacket, platforms boots, skinny ripped jeans and accessories. It’s all about playing with form until you find something that makes simple pieces feel stage-ready.
Bohemian - MEN & WOMEN
Bohemian style is often thought of as 60’s/70’s hippie, and while that can be true it’s more than that. That style is usually less tailored and more flowy style. Bohemian is worn with different layers, colours, prints, and accessories.
Eclectic - WOMEN
Eclectic style is when you take elements from other personal styles, such as classic, bohemian, minimal, vintage, and more, and mix it all together to make it your own. Women with an eclectic style have the ability to put together clothes and accessories that normally wouldn't work together, however, they manage to create a look that not only works but also stands out.
Glamazon - WOMEN
Glamour, sex appeal, curve-revealing dresses are mostly associated to this style. To get the best out of your style, the cut of the garments you wear must be fantastic, and this is where your seamstress or tailor comes into play.
Minimalist Modern - MEN & WOMEN
Clean lines and cuts, simple and sparse accessories, and a more muted colour palette typically best describe a minimal look. But it doesn’t mean you cannot wear prints and/or colour, you can but in a very subtle and understated way. Minimalism can be a challenging style to pull off successfully, but with attention to detail and knowledge of your body type, it can be very chic.
Sporty – MEN & WOMEN
Sporty style has always included all forms of dressing with ease: from activewear to outdoorsy, sportswear to menswear. It’s about comfort; comfort from your clothes and with your body. Nothing better when you want to feel free !
