Tips for Finding Your Personal Style

Have you found yourself in a fashion rut? Are you still sporting those same sweatpants and sweatshirt from college? It may well be time for an intervention from the fashion police.  The constant barrage of fashion and style advice from nearly every major media outlet can be daunting and overwhelming. It’s enough to send you back to the couch in your old sweats. Take this advice from the professional stylists to develop your own personal style without breaking the bank.

If you’re still sporting the same hair style that you had in college, it may well be time for a change. Take the time to browse magazines and cut out styles that you find appealing. Make an appointment with your stylist and spend extra time during the consultation. Share your picture selections with your stylist. They’ll be able to define a style that best matches your hair type, highlights your features and works well with your lifestyle.  Follow this with an appointment with a professional cosmetologist. Take advantage of the awesome deals offered by Groupon coupons and explore the make-up products and techniques found at your nearest Ulta store. Take the time to experiment at home and find what works for you. Change is good! By simply updating your hair style and make-up, you’ll make huge progress in defining your personal style.

Finally, be ruthless in your closet. Discard, donate or consign items that have not been worn in over two years. There’s nothing worse than having a closet full of clothes and nothing to wear.  Invest in a pair of timeless, well-tailored trousers and a well-constructed jacket, both in darker, muted colors. These will pair well with just about every outfit. To ramp up your fashion without breaking the bank, opt for accessories. A fun scarf or piece of fashion jewelry can change the look of an entire outfit. Best of luck to you as your define your new personal style!
