i dont think many people are restricted to certain styles...
i mean
i realize there a re certain cuts for certain bodies and certain deisgners fit differently but
i honestly dont disagree when people say short, larger women cant wear skinny jeans... I think they look fine, i mean there are better fits for them but its rediculous to say youre "restricted" to a certain fit of pant...

thats true, but with skinny jeans they really do look off

how about making a mood board.. scrap book
colour copy / xerox all pics you find you like ,
especially those from random books .. history books, art photography , etc.

and they meld into one...

creating a unique look

I have the same problem too. For about 5 years now, my mother has been on my case about how I buy clothes, wear them once, and then they collect dust in my closet. The other day I was short on funds, so I gathered up my name brand clothing and sold them to a consignment shop. My mother insisted on looking through them and though I told her no, she did anyway and said, "You buy things because they're cute and when you being them home, you hate them. Buy thing you're actually going to wear that are giong to last."

5 years. I've been doing that for a long time.

How do you find a style? I can't seem to find one either. My taste is changing all the time, and I think I buy on impulse.

I agree ... I don't mean the skin tight drainpipes worn by Kate & co., but a narrow trouser can be a flattering cut for just about any body type.

Take a look at our thread "How to start the fashion thing" ... It's all about developing personal style.

I buy alot on impoulse too papa_lavante
i dont neseserily think its a bad thing
if i buy on impulse it means im buying with what i have in mind and not any outside judgement\
that said i have made some bad purchases but for the most part i wear the stuff i buy
if i dont end up wearign it i give it away to good will..

I think it's important not to go shopping when you feel "off" or "weird" ... otherwise you'll end up with a closet full of weird and off clothes that you never feel like wearing ...

Hello everyone!! I'm new here, I'm trying to define my style. Please help!
Hello all!

I'm usually a t-shirt,jeans, and a sneakers type of girl, and I figure I should branch out and try to be more fashionable, but I am not sure wear to start
I want to define my own personal style, but I don't know how to go about it.

The best way I can describe the look I'm going for is very urban and simple, kind of like the things sold at Mango

Thanks!

Hi and welcome to tFS

As per our community rules and guidelines, you have to credit those pictures or else they will have to be removed.

As for your question, you seem to have a pretty clear idea of what you want so why not just go out there and buy it? And if you want to find blogs with that kind of style I'm not sure person style would be the right section for it.. I would suggest just browsing different blogs, most seem to do variations of that style anyway..
