Your style is the essence of who you are distilled into the way you dress and present yourself. That is why it’s so crucial that you find ways to let your true personality and light shine through in the way that you dress. It’s also pretty fun to see fashion that way too, so with that in mind, check out my guide on how to make sure the way you dress reflects who you are. 


One of the most straightforward ways that you can let your personality shine through in what you wear is with color. In fact, as you can see from my other posts, I’m not shy about letting bright and bold colors speak for themselves. 

Of course, the easiest way to work colour into your wardrobe is to choose an accessory in a popping vibrant shade that will compliment your outfit. Bags and head wraps work particularly well, but statement necklaces, scarves, and even shoes can do the trick too.  


Of course, if you want to go all out on the customized front, you can invest in getting some pieces designed and made especially for you. A subject you can find more about at In fact, there are several advantages to getting custom pieces of clothing or jewelry. 

The first is that they will be guaranteed to fit you like a glove because they will be made with your measurements rather than just to standard sizing. Something that can be a real pain as discussed at, by getting a custom piece made for you, you will have something that no one else in the world does. 

Obviously, when it comes to getting custom fashion pieces created, you will need to work with a designer, or at least a tailor or seamstress. While for jewelry, you can use a site like to find the loose stone that you want. Then you will be able to take this to a designer or maker and ask them to set it for you. Something that ones you will end up with a real one of a kind, and there is nothing that will let your personality shine through quite like that!  

DIY Customization 

It’s also helpful to note there are other ways if customizing pieces to reflect your personality apart from getting items made from scratch. In fact, making small alterations and customizations yourself is entirely possible. Something that can leave you with some seriously awesome clothes with which to express yourself too. 

Of course, one of the most on-trend and straightforward ways of doing this right now is to apply patches to your denim or leather items. Something you can read about doing at You can even get an excellent selection for sites like ebay and amazon. 

Alternatively, how about attempting some more complex customizations such as fraying, ripping, or even a rework of a current piece like you can see in the video below? 

Shape and form

Some of the most exciting fashions are those which can enhance or change your silhouette. It’s always wise to choose clothes that are suited to your body shape for instance. However, you can also make sure that you strike an immediately noticeable figure. A great statement coat is fabulous for this, but you don’t always need to wait for winter. More lightweight and breathable covers like alpaca ponchos can help you achieve a gorgeous silhouette even when it’s a little sunnier and warmer out there. Work to your figure’s advantages or find ways to use clothes to transform it.

In fact, by doing the customization yourself, you get the fun of challenging yourself to do a new thing. You will also be left with a one-off piece that encapsulates your style that you can keep in your wardrobe (and wear, of course) for years to come!
