What makes a person stylish?

I have a demanding week both in work and in my personal existence I might say. In work I have loads of up-coming projects to tend to, the list never ends. My weekend is also filled with my nephew’s upcoming christening, making his invitations and looking for the perfect memento. But of course it didn't stop me from doing what I usually do every weekend – blogging. =) Words and topics are already mound up inside my mind that it is starting to weigh down my brain. So, here I am tapping my laptop to slacken up my poor brain.

Recently, I am trying to convince a friend to join in my fashion blogging addiction. She is one of those clueless fashionista and I’m trying to squeeze her out of her shell and introduce her own sense of style to the rest of the world. But, eventually she keeps on insisting that she is not stylish at all, that she’s plump (which of course is not true), and she doesn’t have enough funds to splurge on designer items. This really mortified me knowing for a fact that I am a thrifty shopper. My closet is swarmed with clothes both designer and non designer clothes but all came from my bargain hunting.

So really, what makes a person modish? Is it someone who expends so much on shopping? Or is it someone who faithfully follows trends or lavishly favors branded clothes? Personal style differ in various things, but one must always remember that spending oodles of money, being up to date or being a designer aficionado does not make one stylish.  Therefore, what makes a person stylish? Well, here are the 6 recipes to having a great style:

1.      First, know yourself. What match your lifestyle, personality and body type are some of the crucial points to deem. It is very significant to know who you are and what you like.
2.      Second, be ingenious, scour flea markets, thrift stores, and online stores, you might find inimitable items.
3.      Third, Do not be too caught up with trends, try to incorporate what you have. Put an unusual touch to it.
4.      Fourth, try to hone your fashion palate. Be unique.
5.      Fifth, make an outfit work for you and not the other way around. But remember you have to be comfortable and confident with what you’re wearing.
6.      And sixth, try to dress to express and not to impress, often times we get so caught up with the idea of impressing other people that we tend to ignore our own sense of style. So, before you make an impression try to ask yourself. Are you happy with what you are wearing?

My dear friends take heed that dressing up is an extension and idiom of yourself and not of other people.  =)

my fashion style?? i would go for anything that would look good on me.. i don't usually dig in to the latest fahion trends..
what i do is i mix & match anything i could find in my closet.. when i put on something, i have to make sure i'd look nice, trendy & it should make me feel comfy & confident..

overpriced or expensive clothing is a big NO-NO for me! anything over 500 php is too expensive already.. so look good & be smart:) 

So what about you? What is your fashion style? What makes you stylish? =)
