Who does not love compliments? And if it is about your style, it means you are leaving the room with a very good impression for having an impeccable style.

Defining your own style, with some fashion tips, can be a fun and rewarding process. It allows you to express yourself through your clothing and accessories and can help you to feel confident and comfortable in your own skin. Add a bit of Nepali touch to it and you are bound to get tonnes of compliments. However, it can also be a bit overwhelming, especially if you are not sure where to start.

If you are trying to define your own style in Nepal, here are a few fashion tips to help you get started.

1. Look at your personal tastes and preferences

You define your own style and fashion; this is perhaps the most important of the fashion tips you ever get in your life. Often people do not like their style, but it needs to change.

So what are the things that define your personal style and how do you know if it is suitable for you? What do you like and dislike when it comes to fashion? What is your preference when it comes to the aesthetic of your fashion choices – classic or contemporary? Do you like bold patterns and bright colours, or do you prefer neutral tones? Your answers will define your style; after all, it all comes down to your personal taste.

2. Know your body type

The way that certain styles of clothing fit and flatter can vary based on an individual’s body type. For example, if you have an hourglass figure, you may want to show off your curves with fitted clothing while someone with a rectangular body type may prefer looser, more relaxed fits.

Style does not have to be expensive, more so in the average Nepali lifestyle. It can be easy and affordable to make a change in your look with the things you already have in your closet. Perhaps one of the cliched fashion tips: the easiest way to create a new look is by changing the colours you wear, so experiment with this technique.

3. Be comfortable in your skin

Style is not just about knowing your body type or wearing clothes that flatter your body type as recommended. It is essential to choose a fashion style that makes you feel comfortable and confident in your own skin. Do not be afraid to try new fashion tips, but also make sure you are not sacrificing your own comfort to fit in with a certain style. But, trust your instincts and choose something that makes you smile.

It is also important to remember that style is not about fitting in with a particular group or conforming to a certain standard. Nepali society can be judgemental, but you do you. It is about expressing yourself and feeling good about who you are. By choosing a fashion style that makes you feel comfortable and confident, you can feel good about the way you look and be your best self.

4. Consider your lifestyle

Your fashion style should be practical for your day-to-day life. If you have a busy schedule, regardless of the fashion tips, you may want to opt for comfortable, easy-to-wear pieces that can be dressed up or down. Your fashion style should be practical for your day-to-day life.  

5. Consider the climate

The fashion styles that work in a tropical climate may not be suitable for a colder climate. The fashion styles that work in a colder climate may not be suitable for a warmer climate. So, consider your climate and environment before you choose your style–whether it is for daily use or travelling–as certain styles may not be suitable for certain conditions.

This is more crucial as Nepal has both hot and cold days, so you might want to consider seasonal clothing in your wardrobe.

6. Determine your budget

Your budget is an important factor to determine if you can follow certain fashion tips. It can be easy to get carried away and overspend on items that are outside of your budget, but it is essential to be realistic about what you can afford and to allocate your budget accordingly.

You can look for sales and discounts, but it is better to set limits for yourself and stick to them. By being realistic about your budget and allocating your money wisely, you can make sure that you are able to afford the clothing and accessories that you need and want without overspending while maintaining your style.

7. Take stock of your current wardrobe

Before looking at new fashion tips, look at the pieces you already own and consider how they can be incorporated into your style. This can be a great way to get more mileage out of the items you already have and save money on new purchases. You may be able to mix and match items to create new outfits. Pair a skirt that you already own with a new blouse or sweater or add a belt or a scarf to a dress to give it a new twist. 

Less is more, and it is a very Nepali quality you can possess.

8. Fix your level of formality

Do you prefer a more formal, polished look, or do you prefer a laid-back, casual style? This will help you decide the fashion tips you need to follow.

If you prefer a more formal, polished look, you may want to focus on investing in items like suits, dress pants, and button-down shirts. On the other hand, if you prefer a laid-back, casual style, you may want to focus on investing in items like jeans, t-shirts, and sneakers, which are also suitable for casual and everyday wear. You can even dress up or down depending on the occasion and create your style.
