Happy Monday ladies! My signature look is this look exactly, a leather jacket (faux or real), a pair of really good denim, a cami or tee, and some sleek heels. This is what I feel most confident in so I wear some version of this look 90% of the time. What is your go-to look? If you’re not sure, then think about a time when you really loved your outfit, I mean REALLY LOVED it, like you wanted everyone including some of your X’s to see it, lol! Think about how that look made you feel, if you loved it that much it’s most likely because you felt comfortable and confident in it. Today I’m here to help YOU find your signature style because I realize it’s not an easy thing to do. It’s taken me years to develop my signature style, but now that I’m well into my 40’s I’ve got it nailed down and today’s post is a perfect example. Scroll down to check out 7 tips to developing a signature style for yourself because once you do getting dressed will become so much easier every single day!
SHOP MY SIGNATURE LOOK:
7 TIPS TO DEVELOPING A SIGNATURE STYLE:
1.) NOTICE HOW YOU FEEL WHEN WEARING CERTAIN ITEMS:
I put this item first because in my mind this is the most important factor! How you FEEL when you get dressed is key to whether or not it vibes with who you are so pay attention to that and only wear things that make you FEEL happy and confident. No exceptions, ever! Case in point, I feel most like myself and most confident when I jeans, jackets, and heels so naturally, I wear some combo of this look almost all of the time.
2.) KNOW YOUR BODY:
Pay attention to what clothes look best on your body depending on your body type. Figure out what your best asset is and accentuate that. Do you have amazingly gorgeous legs, if so, then you should wear more skirts and shorts. Is it your thin waistline that you love about your figure most, if so, then you should always wear high-rise denim and tuck in your shirt to show that off. Whatever it is, find out, and wear clothes that flatter your figure, it’s that simple. I’ve done an extensive blog post on this very topic, you can check it out by clicking here.
3.) FIND INSPIRATION:
I find inspiration all over, but mainly on Instagram and Pinterest. Some of my favorite influencer accounts are Fashioned Chic Styling and We Wore What. As far as celebs go I’m obsessed with Rosie Huntington Whitley’s style and of course, I can’t get enough Kate Moss. I try and figure out what it is about their looks that I love so much and when I do I incorporate those things into my looks. Who do you find inspiring, whoever that is figure out what it is about their personal style that you love and incorporate that into your signature style.
4.) SCREENSHOT YOUR FAVORITE LOOKS:
Trust me, when you find a look you love make sure you screenshot it because you will forget, I know I do! Plus, if you screenshot one of your favorite influencers looks as long as they’re affiliated with the Liketoknow.it program like me you can easily shop that look as long as you have the LiketoKnow.It app!
5.) IDENTIFY A SIGNATURE ITEM:
What is the one item you feel most AMAZING and comfortable in? Or maybe pick a few, but whatever that is wear it often! For me, it’s exactly what I’m wearing in this post: a leather jacket, a good pair of denim and some sleek heels.
6.) KEEP YOUR LIFESTYLE IN MIND:
What do you actually do most days? Are you a stay at home Mom running around all day taking kids everywhere or are you a corporate boss babe who needs to be in suits almost every day? Whatever your lifestyle is keep it in mind when defining your signature style. For me, most of my business with retailers is done via email but I, of course, need to be dressed up almost every time I leave the house because otherwise why would you ladies even want to follow me or read my blog??
7.) PAY ATTENTION TO COMPLIMENTS:
If you wear a certain outfit that got you tons of compliments think about what it was and wear that it often. The reason you got those compliments is obviously that the particular outfit looked really good on you but I’m going to take a wild guess and say that it’s also because that outfit must have made you FEEL GOOD which is why you gave out good vibes and confidence that got the compliment in the first place.
REMEMBER THIS IF YOU REMEMBER NOTHING ELSE FROM TODAY’S POST: WEAR WHAT YOU FEEL MOST LIKE YOURSELF IN AND MOST CONFIDENT IN BECAUSE IF YOU DO YOU WILL BE BEST VERSION OF YOURSELF AND ISN’T THAT THE WHOLE POINT WHEN GETTING DRESSED EVERYDAY?!
UNDER $ 100 FAUX LEATHER JACKET: Ok, I’m literally obsessed with this jacket! I love the gold hardware and this faux leather looks and feels real making this chic jacket look so much more expensive than it really is in real life! I’ve only had it a short time and already worn it a ton proving it’s versatility and wearability! Pair this jacket with jeans, skirts, or dresses for a sure-fire way to look amazing all season long! This chic to death jacket runs true to size, I’m wearing an XS.
AGOLDE JEANS: Yep, I’m wearing these jeans AGAIN because they’re that good! The highrise and the super cool wash makes these jeans perfect to wear all year round and they’re super flattering! They run a tad bit big so I sized down for a more fitted fit, I’m wearing a size 24.

UNDER $50 ANIMAL PRINT CAMI: Animal print is huge this season so this printed cami is a subtle way to incorporate this trend without going overboard. Unfortunately, this cami is sold out, so I found this one that is super similar and so fabulous!
DIOR SADDLE BAG: Ok, I splurged when I was in Paris recently with my sweet Mom and got this gorgeous Dior Saddlebag! I love the gold hardware and the size of this bag is perfect for day or night. The best part, I found it on The Real Real for you ladies at a discounted price!
