7 Habits of Highly Stylish People

We’re not born with style . . .  style is something we develop, nourish and nurture, it’s a journey, and a fun one if we can learn to embrace and enjoy it.  The trick is to find your own style and go with it whole-heartedly, don’t dip in and out of other styles, try latest fashion trends or copy what other people wear, find your own style personality and allow it to evolve.  Your aim is to LOVE every outfit in your wardrobe and feel amazing everyday!

So in order to be a stylish person you need to embrace some stylish habits, follow these 7 Habits of Highly Stylish People and you can’t go far wrong.


  1. They aren’t afraid of any shop and can find something almost anywhere. 

There’s no snobbery where a stylish woman will shop.  She will happily troll around the cheaper end stores, but it doesn’t mean she’ll leave with most things in there – the stylish lady is able to gracefully select items that she knows will suit her style


  1. They understand labels don’t make them cooler. 

It sounds cliché, but the most stylish women in the world are ones who have confidence, and who know they don’t need expensive clothing and accessories to make themselves appear cool.


  1. They don’t copy the latest fashion labels

With social media at such a high it’s easy to be inspired by what celebrities wear.  However, just because you saw a celebrity dressed in Channel it isn’t a great idea to go out and splurge money on the same gear.

Truly stylish girls will see a look they’re drawn to (that matches their style personality and body shape) and seek out lesser-priced pieces that have the same look. There are plenty of affordable stores and sites offer items that feature similar aspects to designer pieces.


These ladies can step out in a t-shirt and jeans and still look like the coolest person in the room all because they have confidence (and probably a great haircut, too.)


  1. They know how to use their clothing to suit their own taste

Isn’t it always the case that the most stylish girls will say “This dress? Oh I’ve had it for ages” and actually mean it?

The dress itself is probably lovely, but it’s really the way she styled it—maybe she wore it with knee high boots, a great bag, layered with a chunky knit cardigan and added a statement necklace—that’s what made it look stylish.


  1. They don’t dress to meet the latest trends, they dress to suit their needs

Before information overload via social media, magazines, the Internet and TV,  women dressed for themselves, their lifestyle, and what looked good on them – exactly how we should dress!

Even if you’re wearing designer heels, if you can’t walk in them you can’t be considered stylish – it’s far cooler to wear clothing that you’re comfortable in.


  1. They always look put together but not ‘done’

Highly stylish people are often in the habit of always appearing cool wherever they may be.

This might mean wearing a pair of slip-on loafers when every other girl is teetering on sky-high heels, chopping her hair into a messy bob when everyone else has long straight locks. Stylish people carry off these small things that always make them look a little less “done.”


  1. They aren’t slaves to fashion.

Some of the most stylish people are able to have fun with fashion and follow trends without looking like a complete fashion victim. If you don’t like a trend—even if every celebrity under the sun is wearing it—don’t buy into it. It’s that simple.  The girl that knows herself is confident with her body shape and style personality – she doesn’t need to be told what to wear.


So, come on ladies . . . discover, embrace and LOVE your style
