Personal Style - Part 5

Welcome back to my Personal Style series. Today's concluding tips are about learning by observing and being patient.

The individual posts in this series are:
Part 1 - know your shape and "your" colors
Part 2 - know your individual style, and develop it without breaking the bank
Part 3 - use accessories, and be selective in what you buy
Part 4 - don't get stuck in a rut, and cut your losses
Part 5 - learn by observing, and be patient

Now for the conclusion of the series.

9. Learn by observing.
Actively look for people who have great style. Observe people who are resemble you in build and coloring. Sometimes it is helpful to watch a particular celebrity. Fashion magazines can provide a wealth of information, but don't get sidetracked with all the fads represented. Whoever you choose as a role model, notice what does and (sometimes more importantly) doesn't work for them. If you are learning from someone similar to yourself, chances are that the same outcomes will apply to you.

10. Be patient.
Great style is not usually something that happens overnight. Some people are gifted that way, but for us normal folks, it's going to be a journey. Take your time and don't rush into anything. Do rest assured in the knowledge that you, too, can develop your individually flattering style.

Thank you for joining me in this series. I hope that this has been informative and helpful.
