My Style Evolution.
2 May 2014
I'm quite a sentimental person and looking back at old pictures is one of my favourite pastimes. So with that in mind I thought I'd take a look back at how I've evolved throughout the years, from a baby to the present day. Whats immediately apparent, is that I had some interesting ideas on how best to style my hair...
As a 90's child I was never destined to be as stylish as the toddlers I see running around today! But I don't think my mum did too bad; cute little dresses are always a winner! The end of the 90's and early Noughtie's seemed to take a turn for the worse however and my love for black trousers came in to play. I'm not entirely sure how this begun, but I vividly remember literally living in black trousers. Its funny how I seem to have come full circle when it comes to clothes - as a child I was never out of a dress. Cut to the age of 10 and trousers were my thing. I wouldn't be caught dead in a dress and I HATED washing my hair! Then cut to the present day and my wardrobe is overflowing with dresses and I spend far too much time on my hair!
In 2002 I started High School and appeared to begin a love for the 'Jane Eyre' hairstyle as I like to call it. It definitely was NOT a good look for me, and my puppy fat was only accentuated by it! Oh dear..Also how delightful was my school uniform? I was a shining beacon. Check out 2003's amazing fur lined jacket too. That was a favourite for many a year!
2004 saw the feeble beginning of my interest in fashion. It started off slow, mainly with lots of long necklaces to 'jazz' up my outfits. But that era of my life was definitely the birth of my love for the more girly side to life! That was also the time of my love for skinny jeans! From 2005 I started cutting my hair really short, which I REALLY regret now!! Why oh why did I do it?! So frustrating! It didn't even suit me..ahh the joy of hindsight!
In 2008 I finally acquired contacts and could get rid of the glasses I'd worn nearly my whole life! It was a very exciting time for me!! Especially as I could buy my first pair of sunglasses - too exciting, trust me. By 2009 I'd started growing out my hair again and was still loving my long necklaces. 2012 saw me make the most momentous hair decision I'd ever made..... having a fringe cut in. I know, groundbreaking. But it was for me. I'm SO glad I decided to do it though! By 2013 I was getting even crazier and decided to jump on the Ombré trend and dresses were back on the menu in full swing!
And here we are, in 2014. I don't know if I particularly have a "style" now, but I'm definitely the most comfortable I've felt in my own skin for a while and I definitely think that's a good thing.
How's your style evolved?
