Finding Your Own Style

One of our favorite things about being in fashion is self expression. Being able to express who you are, how you want to dress and what looks good on you. Are You Normal's main objective has always been to Dress True and Dress You. But, sometimes that can be difficult. We want to ask you two simple questions: What do you like, and more importantly, what do you want to wear?

We wanted to give our readers some pointers on how to find their own style and what works for them.

1. Seek Inspiration—There are so many influencers, fashion icons and workers in the industry that seem to always have the best looks. What are some of your favorite stylists? Why do you like their style? Look at the colors they wear, the stores they partner with and how they present themselves on a daily basis. There can be a look for anything: going out, going to dinner, even going to the grocery store. We have learned that not only can we learn what looks good from other people, but we can also pull inspiration from big influencers and make it our own.

2. Match your personality—There are a lot of different brands and influencers that push their own style, but think about what is truly yours. Why do you like this piece? At the end of the day, how do you want people to view you? The clothes we wear are one of the first things people look at when they see us. It gives us a chance to display our look. How do you want people to view you from a first-look perspective?

3. Get creative—Yes, expensive brands are awesome, don't get me wrong, but fashion is more than being able to buy the most expensive piece. Go to a thrift store and look for your favorite colors, favorite pants and favorite accessories. You can take a lot of thrifted pieces and sew them together, completely making your own outfit. A lot of my own closet has been thrifted, and although they aren't as expensive as some of the other wear I own, they still look and feel like me. I can buy a variety of different vintage-looking shirts that go great with my more high-end pants and shoes. At the end of the day we don't need a lot of expensive things to get the look we want. If I feel good in what I am wearing, then I feel good in general.

4. Know your audience and ask for help—What's the great occasion? Are you going on a date, are you going out with some friends or are you going to a work event? In these situations I always like to text my friends what I am wearing (which sometimes is embarrassing and I change my outfit more than 10 times) and they help me out. Especially before I buy something, I ask myself "Would I really wear this out of the house?" I love pulling inspiration from others and sometimes combing their ideas with mine; and it is always fun to get creative and just go for it!

5. Know yourself—This can be a very important one. I have always thought that my body is rather small, so I have never enjoyed tight clothing. I have always bought shirts and pants that are a size bigger on me rather than tight clothes, and it is something I prefer. Others I know love tight clothing! The most important thing is making sure you truly feel comfortable when you walk out the door. Do you feel sexy? Do the clothes you put on make you feel good? If you think something is too tight, too baggy, or too bulky, try something that makes your mind more at ease. It is important to want to look good, but is also okay to not like everything you put on. Always remember that it is your body for a reason.

What you choose to wear is your own. The beauty of fashion is that it is always changing and your identity is your own self-expression. Find what you like, try different things, and keep changing your closet until you're excited about it.
