How To Dress As Yourself

We could talk about this subject all day, every day. But we’ll start today by pinning it down by some simple steps. Folks, we’re talking about how to dress as yourself! It might sound foolish as we all have clothes on and we all function in them etc. But not always are your clothes in line with the core of your style. This can be dependent on societal pressure, insecurities, that you don’t know what you want or you’re just out of tune. Walking around and not feeling empowered by your clothes is of course a no-no. Dressing like yourself is dressing as the best version of you! Here are some tips that hopefully will take you closer to your style:

How To Dress As Yourself

  • Know what your go-to pieces are: It may be the blazers, pleated skirts or oversized cardigans (or whatever clothing piece you have too many examples of). However, building your style from a piece your comfortable in will empower your outfit as well as yourself.
  • Color, print or texture you love? We all have a go-to color, print or texture that we feel comfortable in. Identify these and make the color your signature touch. It might be the color red, the pattern of palm leaves or a knitted piece. Your go-to will always be your friend in need and a reflection of the sense of your style too. 
  • Know your shape and let it rule your outfit: Different clothing pieces and style tricks will enhance the best of you. If you’re heavy on the bottom, add volume to the top and vice versa. This also goes for body parts (Heidi Klum’s legs anyone?), know the best parts of you and dress accordingly.
  • Simple as this: Don’t overthink your style, just do. Be inspired by a style you like and interpretate it your way. Your style is a reflection of you mind and your taste. If you like it; wear it and own it!
  • And folks? Do keep in mind that by the end of the day it’s all about daring to be true to your style and truly not care about what other people think. Put on whatever you want and wear it without excusing yourself.

Remember this; style is about you, so why dress like everyone else when you can dress as yourself?

  1. I’m super excited about that last point. ;p The biggest thing that stops me from wearing whatever the F I want and being fully me is hesitation about what others might think. But honestly, I freaking LOVE wearing stuff that’s a bit outlandish and out there.

    I also like to play around with clothes and play dress-up. 🙂

    1. Same here, that’s been my main struggle growing up with my heart in fashion. Daring to be true to yourself and ignore the stares is a constant problem, but it’s so rewarding to push the boundaries! Xx

  2. Great post! I always dress girly and sometimes my friends are saying that I look 15 years old with my girly dresses but I don’t care, this is what I want to wear and I will wear it!


  3. I seriously love this post! As simple as it is so many people don’t know how to dress themselves. I am always telling my boyfriend he needs to beware of his shape and dress for that- he has literally 0 clue what I mean

  4. These are such great tips to help stay true to yourself and your likes, but also flatter your shape! Thanks for sharing! They are a good reminder!

  5. Great tips! It’s easy to get caught up in trends and what everyone else is wearing. But I always feel best in clothes that are simple and comfortable!

  6. Dressing like yourself is not as easy as it sounds. I think so many people assume that if they take a dress and throw it on then they’re inherently dressing “like themselves.” The thing is if you don’t think too much about what styles suit you, what you like, what you’re comfortable in etc – then you haven’t really mastered your personal style.

  7. I didn’t really know much about the effects of choosing the right style according to the body shape. I wish I had known it before 🙂 Black is my go-to colour and saviour, when I don’t know what to wear! xx

  8. These are great tips and thank you for sharing! I have never been one that follows trends, I think the only thing I bought in the past two years due to trend was a bell bottom jeans which frankly, is pretty timeless and I can wear it all the time.
