Stand Out From The Crowd With Your Personal Style


High street fashion is always going to prove popular, if only for convenience’s sake. High street retailers can make hundreds or even thousands of copies of the same pieces, making a whole lot of money from one design - so of course they’re going to stick to their current sales methods. Customers also benefit in the fact that they can generally pop in and out of a high street store and find something that they like the look of and that fits them well, as so many different sizes are available. However, when you purchase a product that has been majorly mass produced, chances are that you’re going to find yourself in various social situations where you are wearing the same item as someone else near you or that someone else owns. If you want to stand out from the crowd a little, here are a few steps that you can take to develop a more personal style.

Shop Boutique Stores

Boutique stores do tend to sell multiple copies of the same item, but they operate on a much smaller scale than high street stores and are used by fewer people than high street stores. The products that they offer are likely to be limited and once they have sold out, they tend to be sold out and not restocked. Boutiques can specialize in a wide variety of products, from clothing to footwear to boutiques like that specialize in jewelry. So, get browsing and find your next favorite boutique. Chances are you’ll like their style and will become a regular customer!

Shop Vintage Stores

The thought of second hand clothing tends to come hand in hand with the thought of old hand me downs or low quality items. But this really isn’t always the case. Especially when it comes to vintage stores. Vintage stores specialize in clothing that was produced before the 1990s. Their owners tend to curate their stock, only supplying high quality goods that are still in good condition. Shopping in these stores can help you to find one-off pieces, as other items that were produced at the same time probably aren’t around anymore. If you are skeptical in regards to wearing something that somebody else has worn before, keep an eye out for “deadstock” pieces - these are items that are brand new and unworn but have been kept in storage for decades. When purchasing anything vintage, make sure to give it a good once over. Ensure that zips are still working and that all buttons are present. You may be able to repair items or replace zips and buttons if you know how to and have the time, but this can be a little effort.

These are just a couple of different ways that you can curate a personal style that can help you to really stand out from the crowd! Incorporate them into your shopping routine today!
