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!
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
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!
