It’s important that you live your life happily and that includes being happy with your personal style. However, if you’re not then it’s something that you can easily work on. The development of your style very much depends on your personality and your interests, if you like bold and bright colours then that might be something that you can bring to your style, but if your more in to subtle and comfortable then work with that instead.

Like already stated, you need to be happy with your style so don’t dress in a way that makes you feel uncomfortable or unhappy. However, it’s not only about your clothes, think shoes and accessories too. Whether you like your accessories and hate the clothes you wear it all still contributes to your style. So stop being unhappy about your style, think more positively and develop it to suit you.

Why you should develop your style

It’s a proven fact that being happy contributes positively towards your health, with that in mind it’s important to remember that it’s not only work and home life that you should be happy with. Sticking to uncomfortable and unflattering clothes can be a real mood killer and it’s something can ultimately decide on your mood for the rest of the day.

You need to look at yourself in the mirror and be happy and feel confident. If you’re not someone that does this then starts thinking more positively about your personal style by making a change. Don’t let your style drag you down.

How can you become more positive?

It’s pretty easy to become more positive. Firstly you need to get rid of everything you hate, all those unflattering, uncomfortable clothes and anything else that you don’t enjoy wearing. Then you can start from scratch.

Be comfortable with the style of clothing

Style is one of the most important things to consider when developing your style. If you’re a woman that doesn’t like having your legs out then wear trousers and if you’re a man that likes to show off a little muscle then keep your arms on show. This very much depends on how you feel about your body, but if you’re not comfortable wearing something, don’t force it. Of course, this is all about helping you to think positively about your body but that doesn’t mean that you have to push yourself to a point that you’re unhappy.

1. Choose the right colours

To make your style more personal choose colours that you love, don’t go for anything dull if you love bright and bold colours. It doesn’t matter if it’s slightly daring, it’s your style and if you like it that’s all that matters. If you love patterns then include that in your wardrobe, or if you like subtle and bland colours then stick to them.

2. Picking the material

Some materials can be uncomfortably clingy or way too thick but If you like to feel cosy and comfy then this might be the perfect material for you. However, If you like to show off your curves, go for a material that fits your body perfectly. Of course, you want to feel comfortable whilst looking good so don’t compromise your comfort for style. But if your happy with any material then don’t hold back, go for anything that you feel comfortable with.

3. Take positive steps

Shoes are also important to your style and similar to clothing they too should leave you feeling comfortable and happy. If you love wearing heels don’t stop, maybe choose some that are more comfortable to walk in but if you like them and feel comfortable then own it. It’s the same for both men and woman’s shoes if you’re happy then stick with it. However, if you’re not happy and you do feel uncomfortable then think about the three most important things, wear a style that you’re comfortable with, in a colour that you love, in a material that you like.

4. Accessorize for you

Accessories that are important to developing your style. You may be someone who prefers not to accessorize and that fine. But on the other hand, it might be that you haven’t found the right accessory for you. For a woman, a simple necklace can do wonders for an outfit and after putting it on you tend to forget it’s there, it just feels natural. For men a simple set of cufflinks in silver might be the perfect accessory, they are subtle yet sophisticated and it’s again something that will end up feeling natural.

Each of these is something that you can adapt to help you develop your personal style and this just proves that there are more than a few ways in which to do this. Don’t settle for the style you have if you’re uncomfortable and unhappy. Let your style be a reflection of you, don’t hide away, and be confident and proud of your individual style.
