Creating Your Personal Style

Your teen years are all about fitting in, not standing out — right? We disagree! It’s important for you to find a unique way to express yourself so you can let your true colors shine! You can start by creating a style that is perfect for you! Here are ideas for how to have your own personal style through little details and finishing touches.

 

 

Determine Your Thing

The first step to developing your own style is to know what you like best about yourself. Do you have great hair? A charming smile? Beautiful skin? Crystal-blue eyes? Long legs? It is easiest to work around those characteristics that make you feel good about yourself and choose a style that compliments your best features.

 

Start with a Fearless Attitude

Experimenting with your personal style is just the start of what makes you…you! It’s a great idea to start your day off on the right foot with the right attitude. Look for a fresh start. Start your look with a clean face by using a skin care regimen that cleans, hydrates and refreshes your skin! Then, you’ll have the confidence to start your day feeling fearless and unstoppable!

 

Accessorize

Accessories are quick style fixes. You can't go wrong if you throw on a terrific belt, a great beaded bracelet or the perfect statement necklace. Hair accessories are also a nice addition. Beware, however, of over-accessorizing. Less is more.

 

Add a Vintage Touch

What's old is new again. Research the vintage shops near you and pick up an inexpensive jacket, a whimsical purse or a pair of earrings from the 1970s. Combine a vintage item with your new, trendy school clothes and your style now has a cool vintage look.

 

Put On a Hat

Not everyone can wear hats and feel comfortable, but if you can, you have a winning style. There are so many varieties of head accessories from bandanas to head bands to baseball caps. Give it a shot and if it works, rock it! Not many can!

 

Slip On a Pair of Shoes

Your look isn’t complete unless you’re covered from head to toe. Slip on a pair of colorful flats, strappy sandals, warm boots or bright running shoes. It’s an easy way to change your look and add the perfect final touch.

 

Play with Your Hair

Your hair may be the center of your style. Try new things! Straighten it. Tease it. Wear it up, down or to the side. Usually go for a low pony tail? Try a top knot bun! Look online for how to pull these off. You'll be surprised to see how many different looks you can come up with.

 

Make it Up

Wear makeup that complements your skin tone and your skin type. Once you have a basis for your face, you can be daring — experiment with colors and styles that highlight your favorite features. Consider a purple eye shadow to make your eyes pop or pick a signature pink lip gloss color.

 

Your own personal style is the signature you become known for. Make it a color or a scent. Maybe it's your love of hats or your talent for mixing styles. Who knows — maybe you have a knack for awesome socks! As long as it makes you happy, confident and, most importantly, comfortable, you’ll find what style works for you. Your style will make you feel good about yourself and get you noticed. You may even start some trends of your own!

I'm not that much of a fashionista because I don't have that much clothes. I just put on whatever there is on my closet. However, I want to be good at something... so I decided I'd become one. I'm not pretty sure how I'm going to pull that off, but I will. I'm confidence!

My style is the edgy girl type, not to girly but with a little touch of turn boy, I love wearing hightops, boots , sneakers and sometimes flats but not too much.l'm thinking trying on heels like 6 inches.

I just love wearing jeans, a T-shirt, and tennis shoes. No make-up either and I'm still me! :)
