As opposed to popular belief, you don’t need a lot of money to have an aesthetic or a signature style of your own and sport it. However, what you definitely need is the resource and knowledge to develop your signature style and practice sporting it. To be able to be effortlessly capable of doing that, you need to start with some everyday experiments by focusing on sustainability and utilising what’s already there in your wardrobe rather them spending on new ones. Hope this article will help with the know-how about aesthetic outfits.
Importance of Finding an Aesthetic
You might think that you don’t want to set your clothing in a certain aesthetic style and freestyle your way. If you have naturally good taste, you will manage to make it work most of the time. But what you don’t know is that by picking bits and pieces, missing and matching, you will manage to create a good combination to pull off your signature style.
But unless you are the rare trendsetter, you will be mixing aesthetics without even realising it. . Also, if you feel good without even trying to follow a certain aesthetic, imagine how great you can look when you find your aesthetic and dress that way occasionally. So, freestyle all you want because that is perfect in itself, but do explore more options, choose sustainability and switch it up just a bit, every once in a while.
Choosing an Aesthetic
Firstly, it is important to understand the types of aesthetic outfits that exist in fashion, old or new. Then you can research which aesthetic works for your face, hair, and body type. And then figure out if your personality goes with it. If you don’t find an aesthetic that suits your natural appearance and complements your personality, you need to switch one of those things up. Try not to stress too much over which aesthetic speaks to your personality. Clothing isn’t about defining you; it is about enhancing your style. There is no set combination of personality and fashion or aesthetics.
Pro Tip: It is always better to switch up your hair or makeup style instead of being uncomfortable. Keep the personality and adjust the looks. Always choose an aesthetic that you will feel comfortable in. Comfort is key. Be yourself!
Choosing an aesthetic in sync with your personality simply means choosing something you like and will be comfortable in. So, the key elements you are looking for when you pick an aesthetic are:
- Find out which aesthetic the styling elements of your liking belong to.
- Make your personal, physical and social comfort a priority.
- Find out which colours complement your skin.
- Experiment with a hairstyle that works for you.
- Try out clothes of various aesthetics to finally pick your favourite.
This will be your go-to aesthetic. However, it does not mean you don’t get to try a different look. The thing is you should not end up with your style becoming one-dimensional. But by mixing elements collected from different aesthetics, you can learn to look chic every time and keep it diverse.
