Create Your Own Unique Look

Following rules and blueprints won’t help you cultivate a strong sense of style, because that’s deeply personal. Even if you like many of the same colors, materials, or cuts as someone else, how you combine, choose and style your looks is a reflection of your unique taste and the influences that you have picked up.

MORE IDEAS FROM How To Give Your Closet The Ultimate Minimalist Makeover

Follow Trends That Suit Your Style

Fashion should be about celebrating creativity and having fun. You should not feel bad about wearing something if you love it, but you also shouldn't feel bad about wearing what's not in line with what's currently considered to be the look.

High-Quality, Long-Lasting Pieces

Once you become more selective about what you keep in your closet, you'll attach a bigger value to each individual piece and will probably no longer be satisfied with cheap, badly manufactured stuff.

You'll want clothes that feel good on your skin, and comfortable, sturdy and durable.

Developing Your Style

It takes time to train your eye, experiment with different aesthetics, and develop a sense of style that feels natural and effortless to you. And it takes time to then learn how to best utilize those pieces to create outfits that you love.

The good news is that, no matter what your wardrobe looks like right now, you can get it back in shape and even have fun doing so.

Be Selective

Try to keep in your closet only pieces that you love and are truly excited to wear. Anything ill-fitting, scratchy, worn-out, barely "good enough, " or that simply doesn't suit your personal style can be discarded.

Minimalism

It's the idea that by owning less, we free up the time, energy, and money to get the most out of life. The more intentional we are about what we keep, the freer we are to seek fulfillment.

Minimalism encourages us to invest in things we love, instead of accumulating things we like. When you have fewer options, you force yourself into a positive mindset.

Clean Out Your Closet
  • Sort and organize your apparel, separating items into three distinct piles: Donations, Disposal, and Clothes to Keep.
  • Keep only the garments you love dearly and plan to wear often.
  • From the usable items, sell the items you can and give or donate the rest.
  • For clothing that is damaged beyond wear, get creative and turn them into rags for cleaning.
  • Don’t clear out all your clothes at once. Slowly swapping out some garments in exchange for quality pieces will be less overwhelming and more affordable.

What Is Personal Style?
  • Your personal style should be reflective of your likes, creativity, and lifestyle.  
  • When you develop a personal style you are curating a unique image and wardrobe that helps you to express yourself and embody the person you want to be. 
  • Your personal style is a unique combination of fashion categories (like classic, trendy, boho, etc) that encapsulates what you do, who you are, and what you like. 
  • While your style may have influences from many fashion categories, you will have one dominant fashion category.
