Describing My Personal Style


We all know by now that I'm big on fashion. 
...
Really big. 
...
Maybe obsessed. 

And the other day I sat down and said to my Mum, "How would you describe my style?" and there was a lot of umming and aaahing but we concluded that I don't really seem to have a set style. 

Beforehand I was flipping through fashion magazine pages, looking at each and every celebrities' outfit choice. Just by looking at a couple of photos of a person you can figure out their personal style.

Vanessa Hudgens... boho.



Demi Lovato... rock chick.


Alexa Chung... preppy.


Paloma Faith... quirky.


I could go on forever. 

But the point I'm trying to make is, should we have a set style? 

I certainly don't. 

My style ranges from vintage to girly to preppy to rocky to quirky to boho to sophisticated to glitzy to hipster and more. 

I suppose that my fashion sense and knowledge is still growing as I'm only 16. And I feel that, being stuck in the boring, generic city of Plymouth where everyone dresses very similar, that I haven't been exposed to enough to see all the thousands of style options there are. That's part of the reason why I adore London so much- everyone has their individual style and its so refreshing!


Anyway, back to my point- Personally, I just buy clothes that I see and I'm like "oh I really like that.", rather than "that would really suit my style." if you get me? Also, I really enjoy having the opportunity to experiment with the different 'genres' of style and mixing it up a bit. For example, by wearing a vintage skirt with a modern t-shirt. 

I don't really know where I'm going with this post, and its kind of rambly but I suppose sometimes you've just got to let the words flow. 

However, to conclude- 
Do you have a set personal style? Or are you like me, and stick your fingers in a lot of (fashionable) pies?
