So without any further ado here is the reason why you all decided to click on this article in the first place 😉:

The other day I saw a video on YouTube (link right here
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LKZB5PAYhGY&list=WL&index=79 ) on how to dress like a model, and it got me thinking: if models have their own “signature look” why can’t I? So that’s when I decided I should make this article. I want to share with you some tips from this video as well as some I have curated myself.

1. Wear minimalist items

Sometimes less is more, especially when it comes to fashion. Having your own style and being stylish doesn’t mean that you have to go overboard with designer shoes, handbags and dresses. When I go out with friends or anywhere I try to make my accessories look nice and my outfit clean and simple. I like to shop at places like Urban Outfitters, Forever 21, H&M, Garage, Guess, and Urban Kids (yes, those sizes still fit me). None of those places are usually too expensive but with a bit of planning and matching you can make that $5 outfit look like a million bucks.

2. Have a signature scent like Coco Chanel

In case you don’t know who Coco Chanel is she is the founder of her own brand called Chanel, which began in 1910. Coco also invented one of the most recognizable fragrances ever: Chanel Nº 5. (For more facts about her I’ll have the link for an article I wrote all about her right here:)

Anyways the point I’m trying to make is that Chanel (for example) created her own signature scent, so if she had one why can’t you? Your perfume doesn’t have to be a Chanel perfume but chose one that you like and make it a staple for your look.

3. Wear Sunglasses

If you live somewhere that is always sunny then this is perfect for you. Sunglasses always seem to add a bit more elegance to a look. Any sunglasses will do, whether they’re $2 or $200 sunglasses are classy and feminine.

4. Layer up

Having layers is almost always a good thing but if you live somewhere where you experience all 4 four seasons (or just winter) then another tip for creating a signature look is to layer up. Not only do layers make you look classier, multiple layers also keep you warm and prevent you from getting sick from the cold weather. Currently in Canada we are in the middle of winter and it’s usually about -10º or so (at least where I am) so it is really important to be warm during this season.

5. Own Your Look!

Make your look original and different from the rest. Don’t be afraid to take inspiration from others and change it up a bit to make it your own. Remember you are loved 💝
