Hi Blog Fam,
I've been thinking (and re-thinking) about my fashion identity a lot lately as I switch up my wardrobe for the new year, so I wanted to hop on and talk a little bit about staying true to your personal style in a world where Instagram tells us (or shows us, rather) how to fit in. While I definitely have a goal of exuding that "Cool NYC Girl™" style, I also want to put my unique twist on what that means to me -- after all, fashion is one of the most visible ways we have to express ourselves, our true selves, visually.
Recently, I partnered with ASOS to promote their fashion-forward (but budget-friendly) ASOS Design line, which was created to help wearers live boldly through their clothing. Through this line, they carry such a wide range of styles for every occasion, mood, and body type. From music festivals to everyday life, I find myself testing out and lusting after new styles daily, so I love that attainable brands like ASOS help me update my looks as needed.
While it can be easy to stick to the same "safe" fashion uniform -- especially in NYC when you're constantly surrounding by a sea of black -- I'm all about playing with off-the-beaten-path patterns, designs and colors to stay true to who I am. So of course I said "yes" to exciting colors and beaded fringe details when picking out pieces for this partnership!
How would you describe your personal style? Do you think social media expands your style interests, or do you tend to stick to the same uniform? Let me know in the comments below!
