Describing your own style is kind of like describing your own personality. How do you identify the key elements to communicate who you are? Especially if you're in your own head all day?
This week's project was a challenge, describing something personal like style is difficult, but in reality we're in the business of describing style. Justifying how we put outfits together, discussing trends in fashion, new collections etc. Since we're in the business, it's more important than ever to know who we are. That's why it was such a pleasure to read through this week's submissions. We've got some interesting insights on how people look at their daily ritual of getting dressed every day.
Here are a few highlights…
IFB Project #89: Describe Your Style
My style, throughout the years has submerged itself with the whatever occasion at the time.Evolving along with me as I become more comfortable in the skin I'm in.Exposing the best attributes of my body.A concoction of: Composed, then erratic, subtle then nitty gritty.
…my growing comfort in my own skin… has resulted in a very different look from a few years ago. I’ve still kept my love for bright colors and girly silhouettes, just now I incorporate them in a way that is a little more sophisticated, while still being fun.
The quote “No style is my style” (the logan of Shiroi Neko) was the 1st thing that popped into my mind. I have never wanted to define my style, since I feel that would be narrowing. I want to wear what I want without thinking “is this my style?”. If I would have to use one word to define my style, it would be “exploring”.
My style is very casual and comfy, edgy, sometimes monochrome with little pops of colour…
Off the top of my head I would say that my style is quite simple & classic. I don't get too wild with my outfits of choice, and I've got pieces that I've been wearing time and time again for years without making me feel passé.
