In your sights: Finding a style and making it yours

It’s no secret that fashion can be complex and challenging. Most people don’t have the skills or experience to come up with their own styles that will stand out from the crowd for all of the right reasons, and it can be difficult to change the way you look without getting some help along the way. Of course, though, while you may not be able to design a style for yourself, the web is packed with other people sharing their own style creations. To give you an idea of how to capture these styles for yourself, this post will be exploring some of the different ways you can adopt other people’s looks.

This process will have to start with a little bit of research. While there are plenty of places to find fashion inspiration, you’re going to need to spend some time finding influencers and content creators that wear styles that you like before you can start to look for ways to mimic their looks. Of course, this should be nice and easy once you’ve gotten started, but where exactly should you be looking for this kind of inspiration?

  • Social media: Social media has always been a great place for those who love fashion. Sites like Instagram and Pinterest are packed to the brim with images and videos of people wearing their favourite outfits. Once you’ve found a few accounts that you like, you can use them to get inspiration long into the future. 
  • Online communities: Alongside social media, online communities can also be a great place to learn about things like fashion. Websites like Reddit have entire boards dedicated to different styles, giving you a wealth of resources including images and guides.

In the past, people would usually use fashion magazines to find the styles that they like. This was before the days of the internet, though, and this means that you can avoid spending a lot of money when you decide to use modern tools on something like this. It always makes sense to use the web when you’re searching for the styles you like.

The base outfit

Once you have an idea of the style you’d like to take on, you will be able to create the base outfit that goes along with it. Your options are fairly open at this stage, as you won’t be choosing the elements of your outfit that tie it together, and this means that you should have an easy time of getting what you want.

Websites like Asos make it incredibly easy to get your hands on the outfits and clothing you want. They have loads of options available, and it’s usually possible to find options that will match your style perfectly. In most cases, a base outfit will include things like t-shirts, dresses, skirts, trousers, shorts, and other garments that are essential for the overall outfit.

Some people also find that charity shops and other secondhand retailers are good places to find fashionable clothing without having to spend a fortune on it. This is especially ideal if you plan to recreate a vintage look, with older clothing making it easier to achieve an authentic style that truly represents the one you’re looking for.


With the base outfit under your belt, it will be time for the real fun to start. Accessories give you the chance to change an outfit entirely, with even the smallest of items giving you the chance to take on a new look. The first part of this process will involve identifying the types of accessories you want and the way they should look in the end, while also picking the accessories that you want.

There are loads of options to choose from when you get started with this. Jewellery, hats, glasses, shoes, and a host of other items can be used as accessories in your outfits. This gives you the chance to pick options that don’t force you to make body modifications that you don’t want, while also making it possible to incorporate items that you already own into your new outfit.

You have practically endless choices when it comes to the places you use to shop for your style products. If you’re looking for something like eyewear it will usually make sense to look for a specialist company, as this will give you access to the widest range of options. Of course, visiting retail stores can also be a good way to go, as this will give you an opportunity to look and feel items before you buy them.

It can be hard to find the perfect accessory, and you may have to do some DIY if you want to achieve the perfect look. This isn’t too hard, with loads of guides around the web making it possible to create your own jewellery and small garments. Of course, though, if you prefer someone else to do the work, you could consider the idea of using Etsy to find your fashion items.

Putting it all together

Creating the perfect outfit can take a lot of time and dedication. You’re going to need to spend some time playing with your style, trying new things and working to improve it as much as you can before you decide to take it out for a spin. This should be nice and easy, and you can ask your friends and family for advice when you’re unsure about the way you look.

Alongside this, though, this process is something that can last into the future. You don’t have to stop working on your fashion ambitions, and you can usually carry on improving your outfits indefinitely. Items will get worn out and you’ll find new options, making this a fluid process that can keep you entertained for years to come.

With all of this in mind, you should be feeling ready to take on the challenge of finding a style and making it yours. A lot of people struggle with work like this, finding it hard to know what they need to do when they are taking on a new style.
