How to Find Your Personal Style

Do you ever wonder how to find your personal style? Some people seem to have the edge with fashion. Their look goes beyond current trends. It suits their personalities so well, too, and makes them appear animated and unique. If you would like to find out about your personal style so that you too can shine, follow these helpful tips.

Examine your home environment 

Kate Hewko Home 

You may not know your clothing style yet, but you already have tastes. The décor and objects in your home reflect your persona. At present, you don't apply the same qualities to your wardrobe. That special something that echoes who you are and what you value exists, though, and provides clues about elements you can use in your personal fashion style.

Check the color schemes and patterns you use in various rooms on the walls and soft furnishings, and note the texture and style of your favorite objects. Doubtless, you don't want to copy them exactly: No one wants to wear clothes resembling their wallpaper or carpets. But you can get the gist of style qualities you prefer.

Maybe you love dots, animal prints, bright or subdued colors, pastels or primary hues, or pure white, clean looking designs. You may enjoy smooth surfaces, rough textures, softness, or metallic qualities.

Your home might reveal your passion for art, animals, flowers, architecture, technology, or a variety of other features. When you recognize them, you'll easily see elements you can include in your personal fashion style.

What type of person are you? 


Answer these questions to find more qualities to remember when you buy new clothes and put together outfits from clothing you own.

Are you a hyperactive person? Someone who moves fast, has plenty of ideas, and gets excited often?

Style elements to bring into your wardrobe include fluid, flowing materials, patterns, and designs.

Are you cautious, detail oriented, and slower to make decisions? 


Style elements to introduce include embellishments and detailing like embroidery. Do so in a conservative manner, though. Don't dress head to foot in trimmings, unless you love them. Rather, go for small sections of embroidery or other forms of embellishments along with subtle colors and material.

Other questions that influence your style are whether you're spiritual, free-thinking, sensual, creative, athletic, laid-back, passionate, kind, or funny. These and other personality traits impact what the right style is for you. It's helpful to compile a list of your personal quirks and characteristics and then catalog style elements you believe go with them to help you find your personal look.

What fashion elements do you love? 


What clothing styles do you love, but haven't tried wearing? Polka dots, safari themed clothes, or stripes may set your heart aflutter. You might admire metallic sheens, fake fur, or satin. Perhaps you've seen someone in rockabilly, bohemian, or classic clothing and felt they looked fabulous, but not imagined you could don a similar style.

It's time to experiment. Be brave and try out styles you admire, even if you don't think you can get away with wearing them. Note how you feel when you put them on. If you are excited and happy, don't put them back on the shop rail--buy them, because your enthusiasm will show when you wear them.

A decade ago, if you wanted to find your style, your body shape would have denoted what to wear. Now, it's fashionable to let your personality be your guide. Your character and disposition reflect the authentic you, so use them to help you discover a clothing style that suits you down to the ground.


Are Mom Jeans Still Stylish?

Are Mom Jeans Still in Style?

Mom jeans still have a bit of a stigma attached to them, partially due to their name. Contrary to popular belief, these high-waisted jeans are flattering, versatile, and ultra-stylish. Mom jeans are a classic that will never go out of fashion. Learn a bit about them before running out to get yourself a pair.


History of Mom Jeans

Designer jeans came onto the fashion scene in the 1970s, but the style now dubbed “mom jeans” was thoroughly cemented in the 1990s. A high waist and tapered legs were all the rage with supermodels and TV stars of the day.

However, they didn’t get the name “mom jeans” until the early 2000s, when Saturday Night Live officially coined the term in 2003. The style in the early ‘aughts emphasized a super low waist. The only people still sporting a high waist were thought of as moms who weren't hip to the latest trends. These days, this couldn’t be further from the truth.


Variations on the Mom Jean

After the brief dip into super low-waist jeans, a high waist came back with a vengeance. Fashion designers and brands started remaking the mom jean in their image. Now you can find mom jeans in lots of colors, with interesting distressed features and even with added jewels and embroidery.

That doesn’t mean you can’t still find the original cut and colors. The mom jean is still available in a light, dark, or medium wash. Unlike the recent trend towards fast fashion and cheap materials, mom jeans are usually made out of high-quality thick denim that will last you for years. Many are even hardy enough to wear out on a hike.


How To Wear Mom Jeans

The great thing about the high waist of a mom jean is that it is flattering on almost every body type and age. This style can help define your waist or highlight what you’ve got. Remember, every type of body is beautiful, and clothes are meant to make you feel fabulous.

For this reason, you’ll typically want to show off your waist in mom jeans. Go for a crop top or something tucked in. You can also pair them with an open coat or button-down over a tank. It’s always fun to contrast a fancy top with this casual bottom for a look that can carry you from day to night.


Find Quality Mom Jeans

There are a lot of cheap imitations of the mom-jean style out there. Find quality mom jeans without paying the high price tag for vintage. You’ll definitely want to add a pair or two to your wardrobe for quick and easy stylish outfits. Be careful — you may find yourself addicted. Before long, you'll need a pair in every color and variation.

Check out the unique collections at Kate Hewko to discover a fresh take on mom jeans. Don’t be afraid to add a little flair to your wardrobe in these stylish pants. Kate Hewko is a boutique run by women for women, so you can trust their pieces are made with you in mind.
