Let's Chat: Defining Your Style

Something that has always been interesting to me is how we each create our own personal style – what we choose to wear and why, and how we define it. The way we dress and how we "classify" our style can say so much, don't you think? As a designer, I personally draw a lot of inspiration from a person's style when creating something for them. To me their style is a visual expression of who they are and how they want to be seen.

To me, personal style is always evolving. It's a compilation of where we've been, people we've met, what we've experienced, where we are now, and who we want to be. It's when we feel most like ourselves. You know that dress that you have that makes you feel totally "you" or when your heart skips a beat when you find that pair of shoes that perfectly complements your wardrobe?

Preppy, glam, classic, feminine, bohemian, bold ... I'd love to know – If you had to define your style in 3 words, what would they be?

My answer: Classic (I live for classic pieces; things that I can look back on in 20 years and still find chic), Effortless (I like my style to be and feel effortless, and not overly fussy), Feminine (I love feminine silhouettes, even if it sometimes happens to be with a little tomboy twist).

I think about this a lot, and while my style is a lot of things, the three words that stand out the most to me (or are the most consistent) are classic, unfussy, and effortless. I want every outfit to be something that's comfortable, that doesn't look like I'm trying too hard, and something I won't necessarily look back on and cringe.Pinterest has been SO helpful in narrowing down what exactly my style is! It's interesting to see how my fashion sense and home decor senses are very similar, but my paper/design aesthetic is definitely more feminine and detail-oriented.Personal style is so fascinating!

classic, always a pattern and a bright color, and full of spunk. I really like to be dressed different, espcially in a field of men as an engineering woman.

I find it so interesting to step back and think about this… I'd say classic, streamlined, elegant. I always think that less is more!
