A clear plan: 5 tips for creating your own "style map"
According to stylists, the “style map” is a full presentation with recommendations for hairstyles, makeup, with examples of images for all occasions and a complete list of all your previous purchases.
Today we will tell you how to create your own “style map” on your own, at home.
Even if it is not complete, as a professional stylist would do, the right vector will be determined, and you will get rid of unnecessary purchases.
Step One - identify your color type
This is one of the main characteristics when compiling a “style map”. Depending on your type, you will choose colors of clothes in the future. To find out your color type - in a well-lit room, bring a white sheet to your face and look at the reflection in the mirror. If the skin becomes pink, then your type is cold, and if the yellow is warm.
After that, determine your type of a contrast. If the color of the eyes, eyebrows and hair stands out against the background of everything else, then you are a contrasting type. But if your eyes, hair and eyebrows overlap with your skin color - your type is muffled.
Thus, you compare your results: cold and contrast - winter, cold and muted - summer, warm and contrast - autumn, warm and listened - spring.
Step Two - choose your favorite style
Think and determine in what clothes you feel the most comfortable. Or review your old photos and think about which photos you like the most. If, nevertheless, you do not fully trust yourself, remember in which outfits you received the most compliments.
Later, find outfits that you like most in street-style chronicles or on fashion catwalks. Based on the collection of these photos you will choose your wardrobe.
Step Three - parse the wardrobe
This is a very important stage, since in this way you will find out what things suit you best and get rid of old and unnecessary things.
So, if you have determined your color type, and the dress from the old wardrobe does not fit there, then be careful that it does not become a stylistic failure in one of your exits.
Fourth Step - Basic wardrobe
What style would you prefer, its basis is a basic wardrobe. The minimum set is а classic jeans, white and black t-shirts, nude boats, black loafers / boots, neutral color shirts, pencil skirt.
Such a set is the foundation for further elaboration of the image. It is advisable to take these things as well, in order to understand why they will go shopping and how everything will harmonize.
Step Five - choose images for different occasions
Relying on your own ideas and street style images already saved, try to compose your ideal bows. Do not forget about accessories, which are also desirable to add to the layout of each image.
