Creating a signature style is the best starting point for any style journey. Style is your own vision of fashion. Defining your signature style allows you to show your own personality. Everybody has a look; you just need the right tips and items. Whether you’re a beginner or a professional this guide will help you create, enhance or refine your signature style.
1. Know Your Body
Knowing your body is a crucial step when it comes to define your signature style. Indeed, you can’t wear clothes that don’t fit your morphology, size, etc. Choose items that look best on you and flatter your body.
2. Wear Colors That Best Fit Your Skin Tone
Knowing your body is important, just as the colors you’re wearing. Colors say a lot about your mood or personality. To pick the right colors that fit with your skin tone, you need to determine which undertone you are (cold, warm or neutral). Nevertheless, there’s something comforting about an all-black outfit: it’s considered timeless, it looks great on everyone. But, incorporating colors into your wardrobe could be fun and refreshing.
3. Analyze What Works For You And What Not
Certain styles will look better on you. But there are some items that won’t look good on you, but that’s okay! You just need to select those that do. Don’t be afraid to try new things. Assemble some items with others or mix patterns if you want to in order to create new outfits that define who you are.

4. Feel Comfortable And Confident
Creating your own style is good but wearing clothes that make you feel comfortable is better. Indeed, being comfortable and confident in what your wearing is important. You need to feel flawless and be comfortable with your weight and size.
5. Get Style-inspired
Go take a look at some inspirational styles. For example, you can be inspired by your favorite celebrity’s style or outfits. Gather images of people whose style you most admire. Write a list of the items that stand out. Starting from that you will be able to create your own style.
6. Identify a Signature Item
You need to pick one specific item that will make your outfit and your style stand out. It could be any accessory, jewelry, hairstyles, etc. Adding a signature item will help you add that “ce je ne sais quoi” to your style. Plus, your style will stay unforgettable since this item reflects your signature style.
7. Consider Your Lifestyle
Keep your job and lifestyle in mind. When defining your own style, you have to consider your lifestyle and where you live. You need to ask you the right question: can I wear this in my everyday life? Do I picture myself wearing it next year? Will I feel comfortable wearing this at work or in my spare time?
8. Just Do You!
Stay true to yourself. Do what makes you happy. Buy items that will reflect who you are. Life is too short not to be happy. In other words, create a style that make you feel confident. You want to wear makeup or do a different hairstyle? Go for it! If you don’t have a specific style, just wear what you think is cute and what flatter you the most.
“Personal style is accepting who you are.”~ Diane von Furstenberg
9. Be Creative And Daring
Dare to be original! Keep in mind that you don’t need to fit in! You are unique. So, you need to distinguish yourself, be different. To do so, you need to wear a different style. Don’t compare yourself with others. And don’t be afraid to try new things!
