Determine your own style

For some it is a piece of cake and for others it is a big problem… determining your own style. Don’t just blindly follow fashion, but take out what suits you, enriches you, strengthens you and makes you feel good. “Well, what is that?” will be the next comment for a group of people. You can find out, with or without help, but you have to be willing to delve deeper.

To work…

Nothing comes easy, you have to do something for it.
At least, that’s how it applies to most people. If you really want something, you have to put in the effort. If it’s a matter of automatically picking the right clothes for yourself off the rack, then you will first have to delve deeper into yourself. However, for a limited group, they will never learn to combine and pick the right items of clothing off the rack. However, if there are ready-made sets, you can also come a long way. Sometimes you have to approach things a little more cleverly. That is exactly what they do in clothing stores. After all, a simple skirt that you normally pass by can make a nice set with a beautiful top on a mannequin or a large photo. The better clothing store can sometimes help you on your way, but yes, the sales process is primarily what matters.

Determining your own style has to do with several things, namely:

  • Look at your figure and pay attention to what strengthens you. Example: if you have wide hips and narrow shoulders, it is important that you bring it into proportion a little more so that your top is slightly larger and you should not wear wide or loose-fitting pants or skirts from the hips on.
  • Look at your figure and what stands out in a positive way that you would like to emphasize?
  • Now look at the color of your facial skin and see which color (of clothing) brightens or makes your skin color shine or gives it more color? Sometimes a color session with, for example, “seasonal division” can help with this. In such a session it is determined which “type” you are in terms of color and you will then be given a range of colors. Colors that all suit you. Colors that strengthen you and you get tips on what to do if you want to wear a different color.
  • Once you know what suits you “technically”, it becomes important to see what suits you as a type of person. For example, a woman who never wears high heels and does not feel comfortable with them, would be better off buying a lower heel. You will see that the woman does not feel comfortable in a high heel. Or suddenly give a dress to a woman who doesn’t feel comfortable in skirts or dresses. Such a woman might just start behaving awkwardly.
  • Experiment… whether that’s with something you would never wear (a certain item of clothing) or a color. Experience what it does to you. This also means that you have to be critical of yourself. Sometimes you can get used to something and you start to feel better about it. Only a color that you like, but that does not enhance you, should not be worn close to your facial skin. Then, for example, place a scarf of the right color in between.
  • First form the basis of your wardrobe. Everyone always has a number of basic pieces in their closet that you can combine with and that can be worn on different occasions.
  • Finally, look at the fashion and pick out the pieces that strengthen you, there is always something to be found.

Who are you?

To see what YOU are in terms of appearance, it is important to take the time to form an image of what suits you, what can suit you (sometimes a different piece of clothing takes some getting used to) and what is certainly not suitable. You have to come close to your feelings and for some people a tight skirt and jacket is great and for others they feel more comfortable in a sweater and jeans. However, you have to look at what is possible and what is not in each situation.

Dress appropriately

Take that sweater with jeans in a representation function at the office. That is not done in most industries. The situation is and remains important, but even then you can see what comes closest to you. To stay with this example, jeans may not serve that representative function, but that does not alter the fact that trousers as part of a suit or smart trousers with which you wear a twin set are certainly possible. If such a garment comes closer to you, it is a great alternative.
For example, you will have to look at each situation to see where you can make a match in possible alternatives, colors and models.


If you really can’t figure it out anymore, you can also hire a stylist and let him or her explain to you what you should pay attention to, what is possible and what is not and in this way you form sets together. You might even go shopping together to find out the ins and outs. With composite sets you play it more safe, but if you really can’t figure it out yourself, it may be the best solution.
