Discovering your
fashion personality 101
BY GLENDA K. HARRISON

T

o some, the idea of knowing your fashion personality can be daunting, while
others can define it within seconds.
Many have made mention of my ability to
wear many different looks and still manage to
look myself. Here's why: the key to knowing
your fashion sense is to know yourself. When
I make this statement, I'm not speaking about
general knowledge pertaining to you, like, I'm
married, I love Mexican Food, I have two sons,
etc.; but more of your entire essence - your
loves and desires, your spirituality, how you
live your life - those types of things. To better
understand what I mean, here's an analysis of
my fashion personality:
I refer to my fashion personality as Classic
with a touch of Bohemian, a bit of Quirk, with
splashes of Southwestern, and retro 60s/70s.

So you ask, "How does that description
translate into a fashion personality?" Here's how
it works. Perhaps you noticed that I used key
words above that have basically become the
foundation to my wardrobe:
Tradition = Classic
Nature and Arts = Bohemian
Non-absolutes = Quirky
Retro = 60s/70s
Native Californian = Southwestern
As you take a look at my fashion choices,
you'll see they are based around these subjects, and are the sartorial foundation I stand
upon. I always feel like myself and thus, my
true essence shines through. Though my fashion choices are completely different, they all
manage to capture my true essence, which
equals my style. This is why you must know
yourself to create a wardrobe that represents
the true you (your style). When you know yourself, you'll have confidence. Most importantly,
