“The Indie Style” is a term that has been tossed around quite often, but what does it really mean? To be “indie,” or to have an “indie style,” means that you are not following the trends of mainstream fashion. You dress according to your own tastes and preferences, rather than based on what’s popular in the media. If this sounds like something you would enjoy doing for yourself, then read on! In this blog post we will go over some tips and tricks for building your personal fashion identity.
Tips to Building Your Fashion Identity
The first thing you should do is think about your personal style. What clothes or outfits make you feel like the best version of yourself? Once you’ve come up with some answers, it’s time to shop! If there are certain stores that sell pieces that fit into what you’re looking for, go ahead and start filling in those gaps in your wardrobe.
If there are no specific places where these items can be found near you, but their style matches what suits your needs, take a look at online retailers as well (many offer free shipping!). Using sites such as ASOS Marketplace or Net A Porter will allow you to find brands that may not have brick and mortar locations nearby.
And don’t forget bout vintage pieces! You can find some really amazing gems on sites like Etsy or eBay, and the best part is that they’re often relatively cheap.
If you want to know what’s going to be in style for this season, take a look at runway shows. Shows like New York Fashion Week are not just good for inspiration – many brands will post their latest collections right after it airs so make sure to check them out if you care about staying up with trends.
Last but not least: don’t forget your accessories! It might seem strange talking about jewelry before clothes, but necklaces and earrings say something about your personal fashion sense without even needing words (and there are plenty of options out there!). Check out places like H&M or Forever 21 for some inexpensive pieces to wear.
And if you’re not sure where to start, try looking at some of these online resources:
- A fashion blog that is updated weekly with the latest trends and suggestions for personal style can be a great place to start.
- You could also look up some runway collections from your favorite brands on YouTube or BoF’s daily dress videos for a glimpse of what’s about to come.
- The website “Who What Wear” does a lot of editorial roundups that cover everything from how celebs are wearing the latest trends to shopping guides with pictures and links, which can be really helpful when you’re trying to find your own style.
