For many people clothes are something they need but they do not necessarily think about clothes in terms of underlining their personality or expressing their own personal style.
What about you? Do you feel comfortable with what you’re wearing right now? Oh yes, I can hear what you say: “I’m not a celebrity, who cares?” Well, a lot of people do care. Really. And you can easily use that for your own branding, to stand out from the crowd and to make people realize and see you.
The following curated article comes up with some easy to follow tips to create your own personal style and make it your “brand” or “trademark“:
“Discovering your personal style is a form of expressing yourself. It can be a lot of fun and if you are in the entertainment business, it’s a good thing to think about. Follow these tips and begin to express your own personal style.
Personal style is something that can also become your trademark — like Elton John with his crazy over-sized glasses and hats. Personal style has the ability to transform a person, who may have no outstanding, striking features, into someone who can stand out in a crowd.
What pieces of clothing most appeal to you?
Personally, I love tall boots, not cowboy boots, but tall elegant simple design boots. And I also love hats, something like a fedora, and I love vests. What do you like? You can take “boots” for example and maybe come up with an unusual pair, or always come out with a new pair. And a lot can be done with hats too!
What color appeals to you most?
Johnny Cash became known as “the man in black.” You can use any color that you like, or just very bold colors, wild patterns or the opposite — soft, soothing colors.
There’s crazy make up, or drama type make up — what appeals to you?
Who hasn’t heard of Kiss? How about Alice Cooper? Well, you don’t have to go that route. You can make your own unique mark with a much subtler approach too. It’s all up to you and what you like. The whole idea is “something different” — “something unique.”
What type of material appeals to you most?
There’s always leather, that’s been used a lot, but I’m sure that there are still some new possibilities out there. There’s skin tight clothes and there’s baggy clothes. There’s wild animal prints and there’s soft, draping, solid colors. Always gravitate to what you like and feel comfortable in.
What adjective would you like to use to describe yourself?
Would you like to look at your self and say, “I look bold!” Or would you rather say, “I look beautiful?” Still yet would you rather say, “I look cool and funky?” And for some, “I look shocking!” is appealing. It’s all up to you and what you want to portray.”
Just a quick reminder:
You may only be one person to the world –
but you may also be the world to one person.
