What is style?

We talk about style all the time. But what does the word really mean? According to dictionary.com, “style” has many meanings. But in the context of what we do at La Glamour Style, it refers to “a mode of fashion, as in dress, especially good or approved fashion; elegance; smartness.” To me, style is also about:
  • how you present yourself, and how you put yourself together; and
  • a reflection of what you are attracted to, how you see yourself, and how you choose to express those things.
Think you don’t have a style? Well, you do! Everyone does. Here is one way to discover your own personal style:
  1. Look around you. Consider what inspires you, what you are pulled to visually; the things that you love and the things that make you feel joyful.
  1. Then, allow your imagination to create a look around one fashion item or accessory (e.g., jewelry, purses, scarves).
  1. For example, let’s say you find a superb pair of Carrano shoes that you absolutely fall in love with. Think of how you could best show off that item. Visualize what else you would wear with it, and let your creativity build the best possible outfit for you.
  1. Create the total ensemble by starting with just one product you love. Over time, match it with other products that will complement that one item. Remember though: only buy items you absolutely love and that make you happy!
It doesn’t matter where you start—just don’t stop creating your own personal perfect style. It’s always a work in progress but it can also be lots of fun. And if you need help finding your own fabulous style, we are always, always here to help. Learn more about La Glamour Style’s personal stylist service! brake-up-boots2
