Here’s a little style inspo’ brought to you by Pinterest (follow me!) and the some good ol’ bloggies I love. I’ve been doing a lot of online window shopping (not sure if that’s a thing?) lately, and I’ve realized how much of an outfit is about the styling. Upon first consideration, a person’s personal style may seem to be comprised of their clothing, accessory and jewelry taste- that is, the individual pieces they decide to purchase and add to their closet. However, I’ve realized that there is an entirely other level of personal style, and that is composition. How a person choses to pair up the items in their style library is what truly defines their persona.*
At any rate, composition is the critical factor in creating one’s “personal style”. Whether it’s calculated or organic, personal style can say a lot about someone, for your clothing is almost always the first thing that strangers notice about you and can leave a lasting impression. To quote a famously girly, fashion-savvy, over-the-top, amazing movie…
“Don’t you know that you are working at the place that published some of the greatest artists of the century? Halston, Lagerfeld, de la Renta. And what they did, what they created was greater than art because you live your life in it.” –The Devil Wears Prada
Couldn’t have said it better, Nigel. I rest my case.
*save the days where this filtering process leaves us with nothing but non-matching sweats and bare feet…those are personal style holidays, I think. (again, not sure if that is actually a thing.)
Very interesting insight.
