It is OK to be a girl who keeps up with trends and tries to be stylish and fashionable, but it is not such a good idea to follow fashion blindly. If you want to be really special, if you want to be noticed and admired you will not succeed if you look and get dressed like all the other girls your age do. And changing yourself as often as the fashion changes is really wrong.
You need to know who you are and be yourself if you want to have a happy life. And when it comes to fashion, the most important thing is to be original and find your own style. You don’t have to be against trends, you don’t have to be old-fashioned. On the contrary, you can be very trendy without being a fashion slave.
Here are some tips about what you should do to define and cultivate your own style:
Find out who you really are!
You will have to take into consideration two aspects: your personality and your body. Your outfits should express yourself. Don’t try to be somebody else! It is not going to work and it is not going to make you happy.
Ask yourself who you are deep inside and choose the fashion style that express your personality best. Then look in the mirror and analyze your body. Be honest with yourself! See which are your physical qualities and which are that small imperfections.
To find your own style you have to know who you are, what suits you best, what you like and what you don’t like.
