“I really get inspired by stylish girls around the world that I see on the street. Colors, patterns, throughout my travels whatever catches my eye.” – Olivia Palermo
In your twenties and especially as a twenty something girl you want to be one of those super stylish yet effortless looking girls, face it we all love “those girls” What do you really have to do to become one of those stylish girls everyone is always watching? You have to know your personal style and more importantly you have to know the difference between style and fashion! Anyone can know all the trends and the major labels but that really doesn’t mean anything if you can’t style them and make them your own. What I’m really saying is this – Fashion is the Adidas sneakers, style is deciding to wear them with a little black dress and color blocked blazer. Now you see what I’m saying?
Beyond styling things the way YOU want, knowing your personal style is about so much more! You have to own what you’re wearing. If you’re confident and you walk down the street with that ” I know I look great” attitude then you can rock anything with that stylish and effortless look! It isn’t always about the complexity of a look , something really simple can always be something really fashionable.
Dress for yourself and DON’T follow every trend! Okay I know this is a little weird when I started this by talking about dressing like one of “those girls” but I only said that because deep down we are all one of “those girls”. Not everyone is going to wear their sneakers with little black dress but I am and I’ll make it look great because when I’m dressing for myself I have confidence in my look. Some of the most stylish people out there don’t wake up in the morning and stress over putting together a fashionable look because they’re effortlessly stylish! Now on to the trends – just remember this one thing. The fashionable girl follows every trend while the stylish girl is simply aware of every trend.
Remember this Twenty Something Girl, draw inspiration from everywhere, flip though every magazine, pay attention to ads, watch your favorite bloggers and grab pieces that you love, strut with confidence and most importantly know it WILL take you time to develop your personal style!
