I don’t have Style

– I don’t have Style – I’ve heard this sentence a hundred times from friends and clients. It sounds for me so wrong as if you say to an anthropologist that someone does not have culture (because once you live in a society, you have it). I don’t have Fashion Sense, they also say, and it depends on the point of view.

Even if you don’t have a permanent way of dressing yourself; you feel like you change it everyday; and you don’t really think while you are choosing your outfit of the day, you just choose aleatory garments that in your judgment go nice together or just are comfy for that day, it’s ok. It means, being flexible – or not caring at all about fashion, is a characteristic of your personality, as well as your style.

 “Fashion Sense” can be about knowing what is trend and what goes well with what, theoretically. But someone can be stylish wearing vintage clothes and doing combinations that don’t combine et all. It’s all about being authentic and trylly yourself. Kind of cliché, I know. But it’s true. What I mean is: You do have style. You just don’t know it.

How do you know it? Knowing yourself. And that’s the hardest part. Not only because nobody really knows itself, but also because we are always changing – and that’s a good thing. Besides that, each person can have more than one side. So, the first step to know your style – or even create a new one – is: accept that you already have it and start your journey to know your multiple selves. It can be really fun!
