5 Bloggers who rock their personal style

How on earth do you find personal style? I know what I like but that differs to what I wear. What is personal style? I'm so eager this year to experiment with fashion, learn more about what works for me and what doesn't but ultimately, find my own personal style. And I've been doing this the only way that I know how, by keeping an eye on some of my favourite bloggers, their style and how they rock it...


There are fashion trends and then there is personal style. Personal style - I think - is those key pieces, shapes, colours and styles that you keep going back to. The ones that are authentically you. The ones that when you walk out of a changing room to show your friends, they all scream "YES!". Something that has your personality written all over it.

Now, don't get me wrong, don't judge a book by its cover but I'm a huge believer in the idea that fashion is a great expression of someone's personality, their likes and dislikes. Granted this doesn't work quite all the time, take it with a pinch of salt and all that. You can learn a lot from reading a book but you also learn a great deal from the blurb too.



Martha Jane Edwards


I love this girl. I love her blog, I love her Instagram, I love her YouTube videos. Martha is an incredible blogger with incredible skill and style. It still baffles me now that she's averaging around 1K followers on her social media platforms. She is definitely one of my biggest inspirations in this community but also in my trek to find my own personal style.

Martha covets the fashion we're all very aware of. Like loafers and the infamous Gucci belt. But she does it with a twist that just screams her. She follows the trends but turns it into something that is entirely her own at the same time.



Emilina Love


If there is one thing about the blogging community, it's that there is a very distinct style when it comes to fashion. Yep, I'm talking mules and cigarette trousers. Yep, I'm talking layered flute sleeves and denim skirts. Emilina is someone who doesn't take notice in Blogger stereotypes. She is the embodiment of the everyday girl who can covet out-there celebrity fashion and completely rock it.

Emilina wears the sorts of items you see in Zara that make you wonder how they made it any further than the runway? The average girl can't pull off these styles. But Emilina has this gothic vogue type style that I don't see anywhere else and that can absolutely rock these boxy dresses and chunky shoes.



Media Marmalade


Melissa's feed is a delicate mix of premium high-street brands which together make a beautiful, always put together style. You know the type, tailored jackets and culottes with not a pair of Topshop Jaime jeans in sight.





Copper Garden


I am envious of Jess in many ways aside from her fashion sense heartwarming personal style. Being able to constantly travel with a Boyfriend who takes seriously bomb photos for her blog. What more could you want?! Whilst I was travelling, finding the time - but more importantly money - to shop and hone my style was not an option. But Jess manages to constantly live the dream and look the bomb doing it.

What I love the most about Jess' style is it's super laid back and organic. With a fairly muted colour palette and a pop of stripes here and there Jess' style is relaxed. But with different cuts and styles, her fashion is much more interesting than your average shorts and t-shirt or dress and jacket.


Phases of Robyn


This girl is absolutely not afraid of colour and injects it into her wardrobe in a really wearable way. I think most of us are guilty of a black and white wardrobe and a fear of colour. I most certainly am. Aside from the occasional muted pink (and this beaut of a skirt), my wardrobe is awfully monotone.

Robyn, however, uses a monochromatic wardrobe and accessories with pops of colour here and there. It's very versatile, very fun and this style is very much accessible to everyone.



What all of these bosses do is not copy the trends, they exude them. They take them into consideration and turn them into something of their own. Something authentically theirs. This is what I think personal style is all about. Yes follow the trends, then break them down and find what you like. Make the trends personable, make them yours!

This is what I'm working on over the last few months of this year, so hopefully, when you see me in 2018 I'm going to have a wardrobe I'm proud of as a sense of personal style.

Do you know what your personal style is? Do you even have one?

Love always,
Melissa

  1. My personal is definitely comfort: oversized but still slightly fitted dressing! I'm a big fan of stripes so it features pretty prominently too, haha. I love all sorts of lace as well, and they go well with so much! Love your outfit here :) I love Martha, she always has such insightful posts to go with her beautiful closet!

    1. I definitely have a strong affirmation with stripes too! Lace and crochet is definitely something I'd like to try more of in the future. It's really great that you have such a sure idea on what involves your personal style!

      Thank you so much for your kind words, I also totally agree Martha is incredible!
