Curating a Personal Style That Will Stand Out From the Crowd

We live in an age of convenience, so it’s not all too surprising that the majority of us purchase our outfits from the high street. We can find attractive clothing at affordable prices and there’s a really good chance that what you’re looking for will be available in your size. However, engaging with high street fashion does mean that you have a significantly higher chance of turning up to an event in the exact same outfit as someone else. So, how can you go about creating a personal style that really sets you apart from the crowd? Here are a few steps that you could consider to achieve this!


Look Out For Designer Goods

Designer goods are harder to come by than regular goods. Whether this is due to limited runs of certain pieces or a higher price tag than your average item of clothing. So, keep an eye out for them. Fifth Collection Celine, Chanel, 
or Versace could really help your wardrobe to shine! If you can’t afford genuine designer, avoid purchasing fakes at all costs. You’ll simply end up with cheap imitations that don’t look anywhere near as good. Instead, try recreating designer looks in a slightly different way - put your own spin on things!

Shop Vintage

Vintage clothes are clothes that are more than two decades old. So chances are that if you find a good vintage piece, it’s highly unlikely you’ll see someone else wearing it. They tend to be one off pieces that have survived the test of time! You will find yourself browsing rails, shelves, or even piles of clothes in vintage kilo sales for a little while before finding something you’re willing to part with your money for. But when you do find something, it’s highly likely that it’ll be an absolute gem. Just remember to double check the quality of vintage goods - they could be damaged, have holes, or have stains that will take time and care to repair or clean.

Consider Piercings 

Remember that personal style doesn’t necessarily have to be tied solely to your wardrobe. There are other steps that you can take to help yourself stand out. Piercings could be a great addition to your overall look. Societal taboos surrounding them seem to have dropped in the past decade or so and now increasing numbers of people are opting to stray from single studs in the lobes and try out something a little more adventurous. Consider septum piercings, cartilage piercings, or micro dermal anchors. If you do opt to have a piercing, just make sure to take care of it. Your piercer will generally provide you with aftercare instructions specific to the piercing you have chosen.

Sure, you are going to have to put a little more thought and effort into curating a unique look than you will if you decide to go along with the crowd. But generally speaking, it’s all more than worth it! After all, who wants to look exactly the same as everyone else out there? Being a little different allows you to really shine!
