with the staggering presence of social media, aren’t we all overwhelmed with fashion, styles and trends? didn’t we all at some point considered ourselves as fashionistas? i tend to shy away from that word now because it has become superficial. i think we all rather be called stylish than fashionistas.
So what is your style? there are so many, each has its own definition of beautiful. Click here to find out which one is you.
i always see the phrase “effortless chic” on so many photo captions. I even use it as a hashtag when i post my ootd. hahaaa but what is it really? well friends, its the cultivation of french style.
I use to be a sucker for brand labels but i learned through the years the importance of finding your own look according to your personality, your taste and way of life not by the labels or trends. We express our idea of who we are by the clothes we wear.
my style is ever evolving but i always go back to what’s important and that has always been the comfort and the subtlety of textures and shades, easy and everyday casual (casual elegance – if the occasion calls for it) that’s me! – like you won’t ever catch me wearing a floral tea dress or colorful maxi dress though i find them beautiful. this is why i love parisian style, everything should be “au naturel”, effortless and never excessive. For them, to follow a trend is almost, if not, a sin.
on colors – i think i might have gone color blind since the only colors of my clothes in the closet are white, black, navy and gray. hahaaaa seriously, different styles for the changing season but just those four colors. oh except for my trench and a couple of breton stripes. white, black, navy, gray repeat. hahaaa
on shoes – i ran around the city in ballet flats and sneaks, sandals and loafers. i haven’t worn heels in two years. beat that! oh there was one time i had to attend a bachelorette party at a club, i wore a borrowed red pumps but my feet hurt soo bad, i walked barefoot! so yep, that doesn’t count. hahaaaaaa
well, in retrospect, whatever styles we associate ourselves with, as long as we add some personal touches and we’re comfortable and confident with what we wear then we’re all good.
