Keeping a style journal

Keeping a style journal is an excellent way to explore your fashion preferences, track your progress, and experiment with new looks. Whether you’re a fashion enthusiast or just trying to find your personal style, journaling can help you stay inspired and motivated.

To get started, you need to find a journal that speaks to you. It can be a plain notebook or a fancy leather-bound diary – whatever suits your style. Choose a journal that you enjoy writing in and that feels like an extension of yourself. This will make the journaling process more enjoyable and authentic.

Once you have your journal, it’s time to start filling it up. Here are some style journal prompts to get you started:

Exploring your style and preferences using your style journal prompts

Answering these prompts can help you explore your personal style and preferences. As you write, you may notice patterns emerging – maybe you gravitate towards a certain color or style, or maybe you’re drawn to a particular type of accessory. These insights can help you refine your fashion choices and create a wardrobe that feels authentic and reflective of your personality.

Get creative, then create a style vision board

Don’t be afraid to get creative with your journaling. You can add sketches or cutouts from magazines to help illustrate your ideas. You can also include photos of your outfits, along with notes on how you felt wearing them. The more you engage with your journal, the more you’ll get out of it.

Another helpful exercise is to create a “style vision board” in your journal. Cut out pictures of clothes, accessories, and fashion inspiration, and paste them onto a page. This can help you visualize your ideal wardrobe and give you inspiration for future outfits.

Using your style journal prompts for your fashion goals

In addition to exploring your own style, journaling can also help you stay accountable to your fashion goals. Set yourself some fashion resolutions for the year and write them down in your journal. This could include things like decluttering your wardrobe, trying out new trends, or investing in high-quality pieces that will last for years. By keeping track of your progress, you’ll be more motivated to stick to your goals.

Finally, don’t forget to have fun with your style journal. Fashion should be a form of self-expression and creativity, so don’t take it too seriously. Use your journal as a space to experiment and try out new things.

So grab a notebook and start journaling – your future fashion self will thank you!
