Everyone likes to be dressed uniquely, however, finding and defining your style is easier said than done especially in a world where you may feel pressured to dress or conform to a certain way. A personal style is about conveying yourself through your clothes and how you wear them. It is about how you feel about your outfits when in them.

Knowing what to choose from can be difficult. Let?s be a little more clear on what both styles mean.

Conservative Style

When people hear conservative, they immediately think political. This shouldn?t be the case. Being a conservative woman is a way of living.

Conservative is defined as ?favoring traditional views and values; tending to oppose change; traditional and constrained in style; moderate, cautious.?

A conservative style does not however translate to mean boring. Women in the corporate world are often expected to dress in a conservative manner. This is fine as long as you know what and how to wear these outfits to still reflect your inner style.

In your journey to being conservative, choose neutral colors (black, white, gray brown, navy) and add color as an accent. Your clothing shouldn?t be too tight, short or low-cut. You can start by owning basic wears like button-up shirts, shirt dresses, nice slacks, blazers and sweaters.

If you?d like to stay fashion-forward, you may need to take chances on what and how you wear your apparel and adorn with accessories. An edgy style does not only mean distressed jeans / fabrics, leather, rugged boots, zippers, studs etc. These outfit elements only describe one type of edgy look; ?the ahrd edgy? and is the most popular because it seems to never go out of style.

An edgy style is all about combining your clothing apparel with accessories (shoe, bags, jewelry) in a way to reflect unconventional and different. You can create edge in almost anything you wear by pairing with unusual outfits. It is how you wear an item that makes the difference not necessarily the style of the piece. However little or much edginess you want to add to your style is dependent on you and how you?re feeling and how far you?re willing to go.

The best way to shake things up is to first begin small, start by doing one thing differently. Hairstyles, footwear, and eyewear are key components to creating an edgy style. You can certainly turn a conservative look into an edgy one by how you combine the components. You can add a dash of edginess to a conservative look by making a dramatic hairstyle, wearing spectacles, or what shoes and jewelry you adorn with. What may come off as edgy to you may not be seen as edgy in your environment so it all depends on how much evolved your surrounding environment is. You?ll find that your own perception of what is and isn?t edgy changes over time as your goals evolve.

There?s no one size fits all on how to be or what fashion style suits you. At the end of the day, it all comes down what you?re most comfortable in and what you?re trying to achieve. What side you fall on, embrace it, own it and refine it. If you have no clue where to begin, just look up some Stylepiration pictures to give you a good foundation of how to pair the different components with your clothing apparel.
