How To: Be Stylish

To be stylish? Or not to be? That is the question….I ask myself every night when I try to decide my outfit. How to be stylish? That’s an interesting question. There is no right or wrong answer. There is a certain way to wear particular clothing but at the end of the day, it’s up to your own interpretation. That’s the great thing about fashion!

I have to be honest. I didn’t always have the best fashion taste. It took me years to figure out what fit me and I’m still trying things out. One thing I’ve learned over the years is that with every look I love to add a grunge element. I’m all about chokers, ripped jeans, and flannels. I love to cross grunge elements with preppy looks. Ripped boyfriend jeans, black cut-out boots, with a feminine peter pan collar blouse that has a black bow around the collar. My hair? Two dutch braids with a smokey eye. Crossing two different styles is how I stay stylish. It’s how I represent who I am.

How can you be stylish? I don’t there is a set rulebook for fashion. It’s really up to you going through your closet and roaming the racks to find what makes you feel you. It can be hard in the beginning. You’ll go through many stages. But the outcome is worth it. Fashion is about learning who you are.

One big tip I can give is to be confident in your style. No matter how plain or how outrageous it may be– as long as you’re working with what you’ve got people will notice and be in awe!
