Picture this: you're standing in front of your closet, and you feel like you have nothing to wear. We've all been there. But what if I told you that the key to never feeling that way again is to tap into your personal style?
Having a great sense of style isn't just about putting together a cute outfit - it's about expressing who you are and feeling confident in your own skin. So, whether you're starting from scratch or just looking to refine your style, here are some top tips to help you tap into your personal style.
Step 1: Discover Your Style
Before you can tap into your personal style, you need to know what it is. But how do you discover your style? Here are a few tips:
1. Look for Inspiration: Start by gathering inspiration from magazines, Pinterest, Instagram, or your favorite celebrities. Pay attention to the styles that catch your eye, and save them to a folder or board for reference.
Following styleMbellished's Pinterest & Instagram is a great start for your style inspiration.
2. Take Stock of Your Closet: Look at what you already have in your closet. What pieces do you wear the most? What items do you feel the most confident in? This can give you a good starting point for your personal style.
3. Consider Your Lifestyle: Your personal style should reflect your lifestyle. If you're a student, you may need more casual pieces, whereas if you work in an office, you may need more professional attire. Think about what you do on a daily basis and what you need to be comfortable and confident.
Step 2: Experiment with Your Style
Now that you have a better idea of what your personal style is, it's time to experiment with it. Here are some tips:
1. Don't Be Afraid to Try New Things: Your personal style should be a reflection of you, so don't be afraid to try new things. If you see a trend or style that you like, try it out and see how it feels.

2. Mix and Match: Don't be afraid to mix and match different pieces in your wardrobe. Try pairing unexpected items together to create a unique look.
3. Accessorize: Accessories can take an outfit from basic to fabulous. Experiment with different jewelry, shoes, and bags to see what works best with your personal style.
Step 3: Build Your Wardrobe
Now that you have a better idea of your personal style and have experimented with it, it's time to build your wardrobe. Here are some tips:
1. Invest in Quality Pieces: Quality pieces may be more expensive, but they'll last longer and will be worth the investment. Look for classic pieces that will never go out of style.
