Personal Style: Use The Tips, Ignore the Rules.

June 13th, 2010 § 0

I’m often asked where my own personal style came from.

It’s probably because my schooling/training is in design rather than fashion, but I don’t believe my “personal style” to be that I wear a lot of black, wear black eyeliner or make most of my clothes. I actually look at personal style from it’s structure first. The most basic structure you have to work with is your body (it’s like the building’s site).  The first thing I usually tell people when they want my help on personal style is not what they were expecting. I tell them to ask themselves “what body type do I have” and then secondly “what do I want my body to look like”.

There are many beauty tips out there on how to accentuate certain features (I’ll talk more about some of these in my next blog).  That doesn’t mean though that you should follow these as RULES of beauty.  It’s important to remember that what they are telling you is correct, if you want to look “standard” or fit a predetermined definition of feminine or masculine.  I personally though, don’t EVER want to be standard.  So if you want to look thinner, taller or more hour glass shaped then use the tips but don’t believe that you HAVE TO follow the tips they give for your specific body type.  Fashion is about looking like everyone else, personal style is about your uniqueness. Use the tips, ignore the rules.

Some ways that I use the tips and ignore the rules

- I have a really long face and every “beauty expert” says that women with long faces should add bangs and keep the volume on top down in order to make their face seem shorter.  So, because I don’t want to look ’standard’, I did the oposite.  I love my mohawk.  I love that it makes my face even longer and that gives me a unique look (personal style) that is not very common. (see image above)

- I also usually just accept that nature just made me thin and no matter what I do to try to change it that’s just who I am, for right now at least (though that doesn’t mean I give up trying to achieve the most healthy body weight I can).  I’ve chosen, for the most part, that I don’t want to try to over emphasis curves like the rules say I am supposed to for my body type and instead often play with androgyny or being long and flowy (which is still feminine but not the epitome of it, which is curvy).

(Shane of The ‘L’ Word is super androgynously HOT)

- Being 5′-8″, I’m on the tall side and being thin makes me look even longer, but lately I’ve been wearing this one black skirt (on top of all my flowy pants as well) that extends my torso (kind of in the flapper style).  Fashion consultants would definitely warn against this, the rule for long torso’s is to wear high waisted belts, but in the world of personal style I choose that I like playing with the flapper style and have fun doing it.

This doesn’t mean that you have to break all the rules. That’s not what I’m saying, just use them (by following or not following them) to help you achieve your own personal style.
