Why it is important to have your signature style

Why it is important to have your signature style

How To Wear Woolen Tunic - fashion blogger- outfit of the day - Indian fashion blogger - rakhshanda chamber of beauty
Hey everyone,
Is it just me or this is the longest winter ever? I don’t mind the low temperatures as much as I’m bored of the awful rains. What a dull weekend this has been! So, here I am feeling super lazy but I really wanted to share my thoughts on a very important topic. Over the years, I’ve followed hundreds of fashion bloggers and I’d the say the ones that inspire me the most are those who have their own signature style.
Over the past few years, trending fashion, fast fashion has been ruling the markets. Social media such as Instagram has been a major cause making girls try out every new trend that they can. Nowadays, there are brands and stores which take no time in bringing out the weirdest of things and people buy them for the sake of trying. As a result of all this, they tend to get lost in this overwhelming ocean of trends. While it is good to experiment with fashion, it is even better to have a stability in your overall style.

Know yourself

No one is born with their signature style. It takes so many years to finally realise what you’re most comfortable in. And when you do, you must stick to it. Not everything is for everyone. For example, after several attempts, I realised that jumpsuits are something that don’t flatter my body shape while clothes like midi skirts and dresses do. I also feel very fashionable and comfortable in ethnic wear, so I wear that a lot.
Keep trying till you know yourself and that’s when you’ll become an inspiration for others too.

Try not to get controlled by fast fashion
I understand that it’s overwhelming, new collections every other week at affordable prices. But we also need to realise our responsibility towards the nature and not keep buying and discarding clothing at such a fast rate. brands and stores bring out every silly new trend and everyone just seems to get swept by the urge to try them out.
What’s the point in buying something that you’ll wear one or twice? I see influencers trying to justify purchasing all and everything which convinces teens and other young girls to keep buying whatever crap comes out in the market. I am also a consumer of high street fashion but I try to buy only what I’ll get maximum wear out of.

Keep evolving

Sticking to a signature style does not mean that you cannot evolve with the changing trends. The idea is to maintain the spirit of your style but incorporating certain new pieces that will up your fashion game and not make you look or feel outdated.
For example, I’m a lover of ethnic outfits but that doesn’t mean that I’m not flexible enough to experiment around with my ethnic clothes. If you love wearing mini skirts, you can even go for mini length pinafores etc. It’s just an example but I hope you get what I’m trying to say. Accessorizing your outfit with some trending pieces is a great way to not feel left behind whist maintaining the essence of your style.

Invest in some classic pieces

Instead of wasting money on things that you probably will regret buying after a year, save up and invest in something a bit expensive but which will stand the test of time. For example, you can invest in a good pair of black heels or a designer bag which you can wear with every other outfit and pull it all together. Or just those kind of quality clothes such as as jeans, some skirts etc which you can wear again and again maybe with a change of jumper or blouses. Know what suits you the best and just go for it.

Coming to my outfit-

In this post I am in a very comfortable outfit which I often wear. I have worn this woollen black embroidered tunic . It’s a beautiful  black jumper made of really fine material with some gorgeous white Kashmiri silk thread embroidery. The colour is suitable for winters. I wore it on a dark dull afternoon so paired it with a pair of bright red pants to give some pop of color. Accessorized my outfit with a bracelet and finished my look with a pair of black flat pumps.

    This is very important topic and I agree with you., Many girls today don’t know their own style and wear only trends. I always believe if you have your style you can pick some pieces for trend that suit you and that is something what am I doing. There is so many trends which I will never wear because I don’t feel comfortable in that clothes. I like your outfit and style.

    You look amazing my dear!! It is important to find your own style, something that is you. I think we are bombarded with so many styles and people telling us how to dress and look, that it is better for us to find our own individual style, so we can be happy with ourselves and feel comfortable in our clothes 🙂 x

    You look stunning in this. Such a lovely traditional outfit! I agree with everything you said. It is important to be more sustainable…having a personal style is a great way to resist following trends.

    I think you’re so right. We grow into our style and I also think it evolves over time. What I wear now is definitely different than what I wore years ago…and that’s a good thing.
    This is such a lovely outfit Rakhshanda.

    Such an interesting topic.
    I love your style and what you’re wearing here.
    I’m actually not following the trends anymore and I just love to mix up my old and new clothes over and over. I think it’s a lot more interesting to have its own style than just picking one trendy piece.

    I can totally follow your thoughts but I have to admit that I think I don’t have a signature style. But I love your look, so fantastic with the red pants!
