Cultivate Your Personal Style

Cultivate Your Personal Style

Posted by Ross Dwyer on

I’m thinking about clothing and style. One’s personal style, to be specific, and I want to fill you in on something (and then give you some advice if you’re so inclined to listen).

The clothes you wear and the style you aim for are extremely important.

When it comes to style, having your own unique perspective is key. You want to portray a certain image when you dress, and whatever that image may be, you need to make sure you’re conveying it clearly. Want to get on your cozy boy steez with tailored sweats and a fire basic hoodie? Still love the street goth look? Want to cover yourself in as many box logos as possible? Rare Japanese garments like Bape and Neighborhood your type of thing? Want to look like you just don’t care and rock worn-in Jordans and a flannel? Whatever it may be that you want to look like, it doesn’t come easy. You’ve got to cultivate your personal style.

“Cultivate your personal style? What the hell does that mean?” you might be wondering. Simple: your clothes should reflect the person that you are, or at least the person that you want to be. Find an aesthetic that works for you and build around it. Sure, it’s ok to be inspired by someone, no matter if that someone is Kanye West, Ronnie Fieg, or just some fresh dude you know from around that always has a fire outfit on (like the Piff staff), but build off of that. Don’t copy, but be inspired.

Find pieces that you love, and make them staples. Pick three items that you’re all about and try to work at least one of them into every fit. These pieces can be anything from a crisp pair of black denim to a camp cap to a simple, high-quality hoodie. From there, you can build your wardrobe around those staple pieces. Find all the Supreme, Bape, and kicks you want, and get them to play off those pieces.

And last but not least, wear your clothes with confidence. Do you like your steez? If you do, than it doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks. As soon as you stop worrying about what others think of how you dress, your freshness level will go through the roof (trust me, I speak from experience). Also, if you’re throwing on a flashy fit, don’t be a wallflower. Yes, people are looking at you. They’re rocking with your steez. If you look good, then you’ll feel good and your confidence will be high. There’s really nothing like getting a fire fit off.

So get to work. Make sure your wardrobe represents you well.. And always keep your steez on ten and your jawnz extra crispy. If you feel good and look good, there’s no stopping you.
