I find that I admire all styles of clothing but can never fit into any one definition of style. I'm a huge admirer of minimalist fashion. In fact, many of the bloggers I follow and love are minimalists. I also sometimes dress in a very minimalist way, however my personal style does not fit the definition of a minimalist.
One word I would use to define my style is adaptable. Depending on the occasion, the location, or the time of day, my style will change to fit the mood I find to be appropriate for that occasion. My personal motto is if you look good, you feel good. So when shopping, I never limit myself to the type of clothing I will select or try on. If something looks quirky or different, I'll reach for it and give it a shot. Sometimes it's a complete failure but some of my best pieces and most complimented clothing are those that you wouldn't typically think of trying on in a store.
So the question the question of the matter is, can style be taught?
I definitely think so! With all the blogs and online fashion publications like Who What Wear, Refinery 29 or even Vogue, you can learn how to style any and everything. The real question is, do you care enough to read about it or improve your own sense of style? If the answer is yes, I think anyone and everyone has the ability to be stylish. Whatever that may look like for you, always remember to stay true to yourself because confidence is key. If you wear something you feel completely out of place in, it will show.
How would you define your personal style?
