This morning I wrote about describing your style persona, which involved coming up with two lists of adjectives. One that describes your current style and another that describes the style you aspire to achieve. Sometimes it is hard to come up with these adjectives. When this is the case, my clients have found it useful to think about adjectives that do NOT describe the style they aspire to achieve. 

Try having a stab at this yourself. Start off by jotting down thoughts on the types of looks, vibes and styles that are not right for you on this leg of your style journey. Then narrow it down to five to ten adjectives. I’ll use myself as an example. I do not aspire to a style that is:

  • Bohemian
  • Bombshell
  • Casual
  • Maximal
  • Neutral 
  • Romantic
  • Rough Around The Edges (RATE)

Style is a celebration of individuality, so our lists will probably look quite different. That’s brilliant because there is no one way to be stylish. Your style begins and ends with a strong sense of self, and that’s the most important thing.
