When I think about my personal style, the word balance always comes to mind first. As far as outfits are concerned, I definitely prefer very clean, polished looks. What do I mean by polish? Well, to me, polish is a combination of fit, feel and overall appearance. I stay away from wearing anything that doesn't feel good on, pieces that I have to constantly adjust or things that have hanger appeal, but don't really wear well because they wrinkle as soon as you put them on. Actually, wrinkles happen to be a particular pet peeve of mine, because no matter how beautiful something is, if it's wrinkled, it just looks messy and disheveled. I suppose you can call me a perfectionist:)
Yet, with the exception of extremely dressy, night-time outfits, the overall look I generally go for is definitely much less precise and not too perfect, which is why I like to balance my neat outfits with undone, slightly messy hair and minimal make up. I don't know why really, but this combination always feels like me the most. Perhaps it's the fact that I can never get my fine hair to look absolutely perfect or maybe it's because I don't have the patience to spend a lot of time doing my make up, or maybe it's the combination of both. But whatever the reason may be, since this combination is definitely what makes me feel comfortable and being comfortable and looking pulled-together are essentially synonymous to me, it is this feeling that I always look for when I style a look.
What about you guys, what style makes you feel like you the most?
