I’m curious, fellow Chictopians – how do you define your personal style?

My sense of personal style is still developing, but if there is one thing I have learned from my previous blogging adventures, it’s that sweet and feminine doesn’t work for me by itself. I feel awkward and out of place when wearing too many frills or florals – give me studs, black leather pants, a boyfriend cardigan and hemp bracelets and I’ll rock it like Kurt Cobain.

Aside from that, though, my mood usually determines my style for the day. Blazers, moto jackets, trenches, boho skirts, trousers, skinny pants, boots and wedges rule my closet (all in dark colors, of course). I do love skirts, as long as they’re not too adorable, and I love to change it up and do something crazy and unexpected whenever I can. For me, life is an ongoing game of dress up, and I dress according to who I want to be on any given day. I’ve come to embrace the fact that every day is not a photo shoot (life on a runway seems boring anyway), and that often a little imperfection is more beautiful (and real) than flawless hair, nails, make up and wardrobe. Life isn’t perfect, and I don’t need to be, either.

To be honest, I don’t really know. I’m still young, I mean, my 19th birthday is less than a week away and I still feel like I don’t really have my own sense of style. I dress sweet and feminine, but I also really dig leather jackets and Doc Martens. I guess I’m like sugar and spice.

Just like KatieLeee I feel like I haven’t really found my style yet. (and, happy birthday in advance to you as well ;)) I am still trying to find out who I am and which style that is the best for me. But, right now, I do think that I would describe it as a mix of indie, vintage, what’s popular among the “cool” kids my age, what’s hated by the kids my own age, and some other stuff as well. But, it’s not really important for me to put a label on my style. I buy what I like, I wear what I like, no matter if it “fits” my style or not.

I don’t really know, yet.
But if I my life depended on it to explain to someone, I would say a “hippie rocker with a very little preppy on the side”
Haha.

I like adding a touch of black or edginess to every outfit I wear. Where I’m from, people like to wear short shorts and singlet tops and generally look EXACTLY THE SAME, and i’ve always hated that. I’m in love with the victorian gothic period, but I don’t mind being girly every once in a while. I like accentuating my curves in dresses, and if I get it right, I look more houglass than the pear that I am. But I’ll always stay true to my black jeans and black top!

I love all of your answers! I think knowing what you feel comfortable in is an important part of having a unique style. In today’s world if instant communication, what we wear tends to be the first clue to who we are when making first impressions.
