Now that you know what flatters your body shape and which key pieces will help you create countless looks, it’s time to define your own personal style. There are specific styles you can identify with, but it’s also ok if you don’t fit into one category. These following tips will help you get a better sense of your own style.

1. Find your style doppelgänger. All of us have one or two fashion influencers we look up to. Whether she’s a classic icon like Grace Kelly or Jackie O., an on-trend celebrity like Olivia Palermo or Rihanna, or a fashion influencer like Sara Donaldson or Alexa Chung, we look up to a specific someone’s style for inspiration because we relate to how they dress. Once we know who our style menagerie is, it’s a lot easier to define our look.

2. Look out for repeat offenders. As varied as our closet may be, there’s always one piece that’s always repeating itself. A striped shirt? A fur coat? Whatever it is, we repeat it because it makes us feel comfortable and true to ourselves. Take note of those repeat offenders and see how they go with your style menagerie’s style.

3. Keep it natural. I’ve purchased tons of pieces just because they’re a strong trend at the moment, just to keep them hung unworn. Truth is, I always go back to my favorite pieces because that’s what looks natural on me. Don’t make yourself wear something that doesn’t look like you just to follow a specific trend or to copy someone else’s style.

It’s called personal style for a reason. Wear what you like and how you like, and those easy looks you feel more comfortable with will translate into your style. If you’re still doubtful on what you style is, take this next quiz that’ll help you get a better idea.
