How To Refine Your Style
It isn't a secret that we live in a time where social media and influencers hugely affect our choices in what we buy. We adopt these trends because we desire to be seen or treated as having a similar status as these top tier influencers.
We'll show you how to refine your style so that you don't fall victim to purchasing brands and pieces that don't feel authentic to you. This will save you money, but it will also help to solve the problem of over-consumption.
Step No. 1: Get to know the queen you are.
Figure out what you like. Think about the music you listen to, the films you watch, your favourite characters, places you've traveled (or you've been dying to see), artists that inspire you, icons of the past, architecture, nature... the list goes on.

Identify and be specific about what resonates with you. Write these down on a list.
Step No. 2: Identify your top 3 designers.
Now, get more specific and define your aesthetic.
The most efficient way to do this is to scroll through Vogue Runway (one of our favourite apps) and pick 3 major designers that resonate with your style. Many designers have a specific niche that will attract you if they resonate with you... examples of niches include minimalism, rock & roll, sensuality, athleticism, and geometry/structure.
