Finding Your Personal Style


WEEKDAY shirt | Nasty Gal trousers | Zara oxfords

A while back, I really started noticing how much the clothes I wore affected the way I feel about myself. That feeling I would get when I wore great clothes is the reason why I love fashion and personal style so much. It's about finding your own voice and persona and expressing that through your clothes. I had a history teacher in high school who'd always so wisely say: "Only dead fish swim with the stream". That's one of my favourite quotes now. Through your visual style, you're telling a story. The clothes you wear and how you style them are a part of your personal brand.
Developing your own look is a great way to focus your voice. A look can be as crazy or as polished as you like as long as it's consistent, curated and match your personality. My personal style is heavily inspired by the '80s and the early '90s so when I go shopping for new clothes, my instinct is to go directly to a vintage store or a thrift shop. I love wearing '80s clothes because it makes me feel like I have a little piece of the '80s with me.

What's your personal style?
