I get asked to describe my own personal style quite often, and to me the answer is easy… it doesn’t fit into one category. I can go from wearing a simple and girly ensemble like this silky charmer slipdress one day, to an edgy look that’s made up of a form fitting bodysuit and shorts the next. I wear pieces that make me feel good and confident, and I guess that all depends upon what my current mood is. To me, fashion is away to express yourself, and you should never limit yourself to a specific style!
This year I’ve challenged myself to expand my fashion horizons, and it’s been a lot of fun. I have incorporated new colors into my wardrobe that I normally wouldn’t wear like reds and greens, tried new trends like the chic and sexy bodysuit and the hip accentuating paperbag waist hem – with one major concern in mind… Will my audience respond well to my fashion risks and constantly evolving style? When you work in an industry where you are constantly judged by your physical appearance and sense of style, and your worth is determined based on the amount of followers you have and likes your photos receive, every day brings a new challenge. There are outfits, collaborations, and projects that I’ve felt really good about, that tank via Social Media as soon as I hit publish, and that’s okay. At the end of the day I try to remind myself that as long as I continue to put out content that reflects who I am as a person, I’ll never be a “sell out.”
So as a new season quickly approaches, I find myself having an identity crisis. Let’s be honest, no matter what your profession is, you have goals and aspirations you’d like to achieve to reach your own level of accomplishment. That looks different for everyone! It’s been hard to watch people who started their blogs late in the game pass me by, and there’s a constant conversation of real vs. authentic in this industry. Do I continue to do what I’ve been doing and feel good about the slow and steady progress? Do I alter my content/ style to fit a specific mold that seems to be popular right now?
Join the conversation below. How do you describe your own personal style? What makes you feel confident? Is there anything specific you’d like to see on The Styled Fox? Your feedback is valuable, and much appreciated! Have a great start to your week, and as always, thanks for stopping by!
