    I am hoping to develop the signature style of “old lady”. Then people can stop bugging me about “fashion”. 🙂

    I admire people who have a signature style. It makes them seem like they know what they want and they know what they look good in.

    I like to think of myself as a third party. I don’t follow “trends” (at least not in a way that I blindly buy everything that the magazines want me to wear this season), but I find having a signature style too restricting for me. One could argue that “Jeans + T-Shirt + sneakers” is my personal “uniform”, and I admit that it’s what I usually wear. Still I like to change my appearance according to mood and occasion.
    My sister is one of the people with a signature look. A few years ago she decided that she wanted to have red hair and wear nothing but layered clothes in black. It suits her well and she’s happy that way. And she never has to worry about what to wear on a given day. Sometimes I envy her for it, because she’s always very definitely “herself”.
    On the other hand I don’t feel “not myself” either, no matter what I wear. And I like to play with styles and looks and colours. My life has too many facets for one specific type of outfit.

    I tend to have a signature style, but change small things like the fit of a cardigan or the type of shoe, to stay somewhat fashionable.
