Why my style is important to me

What exactly is style? Every day we face the world and show them who we are. We put on our makeup, fix our hair, and wear clothes that make us feel comfortable and confident. How we choose to present ourselves to the world may differ as night from day from person to person, but each and every one of us wants to show the world who we really are and we do so through our personal style choices.

It is important to make a clear distinction between fashion and style. Fashion as a whole is mostly transient, a temporary trend which comes and goes with the seasons and the years. Although it may evolve as we grow and mature, personally and professionally, style is permanent. Style is unique to you and me, and it tells the world who we are. Everyone has his or her own definition of style, and it is as personal and diverse as we want it to be.

What does my style tell the world?

While fashion is often trendy, yet impersonal, style is evident in every aspect of our lives and can be seen in our homes, our clothes, our hair, and almost every other aspect of our lives. My style is a tool which allows me to express myself, and it speaks to people around me on many different levels. It tells them about my passions, my priorities, and gives them a glimpse into who I truly am.

That is why your personal style choices tell your story to the world. From the very first impression it makes when meeting someone new, it tells them about your personal and professional state of mind, your personality and many other aspects. It also makes you to feel confident, and helps to reinforce behavioural traits that you wish to instil in yourself.

Why my hairstyle is so important

While your choice of clothes, shoes, accessories and makeup (if you choose to wear any) contribute a great deal to your personal style, your hair is the one aspect that involves a much greater deal of thought, care and planning. An unflattering dress can be taken off and discarded at will, but your hair is personal, and you might often have to endure the consequences of choices you make regarding your hairstyle for months afterwards. This is why it is important to not simply follow fashion when it comes to choosing a new hairstyle, but to rather rely on and follow your own personal style.

It is important to choose a hairstyle which suits your face as well as you personality and your lifestyle. While this is no easy feat, choosing the correct hairstyle for your own personal style is sure to make people sit up and take notice.

So no matter what your personal style is, remember that it is a part of who you are and what you believe in. Fashion may change with the seasons, but your style is a part of your life which will forever let the world know exactly who you are.

    My style shows who I am and what I am about without saying a word, It shows and gives me confidence on a daily basis, and it makes me appreciate my life even more. I know who I am, I love myself and I love my style.
