I would most appropriately fit into the "hippie category"...the 70's are kind of my self proclaimed genre of choice.
I wouldn't go as far as to say everyone has a genre, but I would say that most people fit into a certain fashion niche even if they aren't totally all about it. Ummmm....hello, you don't think they classify the high school jocks, or the drama club-ers, or the art kids based on their dashing personalities completely right? Nope, they dress the part...whether it's for sheer comfort, or to fit in...or to feel themselves.
I never spent a great amount of time figuring out what my sense of style was...it changed here and there over the years...but the underlying theme has always kind of stayed the same. I love bell bottoms, big hair, beads, fringe, bold prints and color... I love everything stylistically about the 70's with a little mid-century, eames-esque-ness ( there is a science to my word creations, though I am apologizing for it now haha) thrown in.
Knowing your style is important...not like grand-scheme-of-things important, but it is just as much a part of who you are and your identity as the color of your eyes. It is part of your personality. It's fun. Also, playing with your style gives a little boost to the old confidence...and don't we need a little of that every now and again?!
feathers, owls, did I mention fringe and beads...lol....platform shoes, turquoise.... these are my eye-catchers in fashion...
I have a style icon...someone in fashion I admire for her taste in clothing...but it is nothing like mine...
I think it is equally important to keep pushing your style forward...it is a progression just like you are...a work in progress. So yes, while Audrey Hepburn's style is far from mine, I find little ways to incorporate her style into mine...ie, capelet, skinny jeans, and flats... (those being the most practical)
Top: TJMaxx ( clearance rack $3 !!!)
Sandals: thrifted $2 ( yes, I said sandals!!! 70 degree weather!!!! Can I get an Amen?!?!)
Bracelets/Cuffs: some gifted, turquoise one was handmade by me, and a couple are F21
So, tell me...what fashion niche or genre to you more closely fall into...and which one do you wish you fit into more (aka me liking Audrey Hepburn's mod style)?
