Defining Your Authentic Personal Style

Yes, knowing how to dress your body is an important skill. But the real magic is knowing who you are and mastering how to communicate that through your style. At Poplin, we help you identify your authentic personal style. Then we balance that with your budget, your body type and your lifestyle to create a strategy for you to make getting dressed easy.

When you wake up each day and look in the mirror, you are looking at your most important audience. When you feel like you are truly showing who you are to the world, the world responds. It becomes a symbiotic relationship.

So how would you describe your ideal self when you look in that mirror? When you’re able to capture that with a few descriptive words or phrases, you then have a tool for filtering your style decisions and taking control of what you communicate to the world.

How to Determine Your Personal Style Key Words

Close your eyes. Imagine yourself as the VERY best version of you. You walk into a room looking your absolute best in clothes that make you feel like your powerful, beautiful, badass self. There are no budgets. There are no restrictions. See it?

Now, what words would the people in the room use to describe your personal style?

That’s it. List them. Ideally, you’ll have about three words or phrases. They don’t need to be synonyms. In fact, it’s best if they aren’t. Below is a list of words and few example of real Poplin clients and their style words to get you started. No two are the same. After all, edgy and boho is different from edgy and classic. Find your words and use them everyday. Need some help? Reach out for a client consultation or try out the Poplin Style Pinterest Boards based on personal style words.
