Hello everyone and welcome back to The JC Effect! Today I’m sharing some photos from my “Coca-Cola Photoshoot” and talking a little bit about personal style.
Personal style is the easiest way to get a sense of someone’s personality. It’s how people will perceive you when you walk into a room. It’s also how you advertise yourself to your future boss and/or even a potential suitor.
Recently I did some soul searching and I realized: I don’t have a personal style. I would find things on social media and put my own spin on it but I never took the time to figure out exactly how I wanted people to perceive me.
So after spending endless hours on Pinterest, I came up with the 3 words that describe my personal style flawlessly and hopefully after seeing mine, you’ll consider finding the 3 words or phrase that describe YOUR personal style.
My descriptors are as follows:
1. VERSATILE. I love outfits that can be worn practically anywhere as well. For instance, this is a great summer outfit for me because it can be worn to a lunch date, a baseball game, and a photo shoot. I also don’t limit myself to casual outfits. I thoroughly enjoy getting dressed up to go to formal events so that’s another way I look at my versatility.
2. EFFORTLESS. I tend to create outfits that can easily be transformed with the addition of an accessory such as a jacket (worn regularly or around the waist) or with a simple change of shoes. I just don’t prefer to look like I worked all day to create my look for the day…even if I did plan that particular outfit for weeks (LOL!).
3. UNAPOLOGETIC. I simply wear what want to wear whether it’s Vans & a cut off tee or stilettos & a midi skirt. Because I have such a good grasp of my personal style, it doesn’t matter what anyone has to say about what I wear. I get dressed for me and not for anybody else’s approval.
Once you make fashion a personal thing, everything that may have made it overwhelming or boring is gone. For example: if you know your personal style, walking into huge department stores is no longer intimidating because you will already have an idea of what you’re looking for. If you make a mental note of the things you
HATE, it’ll be so much easier to look past the fluff in every store and find what you LOVE.
