I know I can be quite predictable when it comes to fashion. I do like to experiment with it and I do love the trends just like any other fashionista, but I always carefully choose the clothes I buy. In the past 3-4 years, I stopped purchasing trendy clothes and created small obsessions for things like shirts, tuxedos, denim, and lots of monochrome colours.
My goal was to find a style and try as much as possible to be constant and not change it completely every 6 months or every day. There isn't an exact formula on how to find it, but following the steps below will definitely help you get on the right track.
1. Search for inspiration - See the collections, save the looks you like, find old images and if you like a certain designer or a certain decade, dig more into it. Everytime you see an image you like, save it and come back to it later on.
2. Define your style icons - Make a list of the women you admire and try to see what you like about their style. For instance I love Emmanuelle Alt, Kate Moss, Anja Rubik and Alexa Chung. I studied their looks for years and years and they all have a minimalist rock'n'roll wardrobe.
3. Stay constant - When I go shopping and I find a cute dress, I try to imagine if those ladies mentioned above would wear it. If the answer is no, then I don't buy it, because at the end of the season, I know I won't like it anymore.
