How I Found My Personal Style III: Analysing Cuttings

So you've hopefully managed to collect some CUTTINGS and thought about your taste in general - asking yourself what you like the look of...

The next step is to assess your cuttings.

1.  Ask yourself:  'What style is this?'  How would you describe each picture you're got?  Is it 'classic' style or 'feminine/ masculine', 'dramatic', 'sporty' etc.

2.  Think about why you like the item/ outfit.  Take each picture and ask:  'So why did I pick this?'  Was it the length/ colour/ fabric/ shape/ neckline/ decoration etc.  Try to work out if there are any lengths, necklines, fabrics, colours you like particularly.  And look at how clothes are put together - whether they're layered or not for example, how colours are combined and whether you are drawn to patterns or plain.

From asking yourself why you're drawn to the pictures you've chosen, make a list like this one below and, where you can, write down what you like in the way of the following:

SHOES
BAGS
JEWELLERY
OTHER ACCESSOREIS LIKE BELTS, HATS ETC.
MAKEUP LOOKS
HAIRSTYLES
JACKETS/ COATS
TOPS
SKIRTS
TROUSERS 
DRESSES
