The next step in reinventing your wardrobe is discovering what makes you tick, personal style can be very difficult to pin point. I recommend saving any pictures you particularly like into a folder, scan in any you find offline and add photos of anyone you admire. Eventually a theme should appear, it's not immediately obvious but generally there's a few factors that you love in style. Don't worry if your collection doesn't mix together well, your style is unique to you.
- Polyvore - You can create your own outfits using online clothing and view other peoples.
- Tumblr - look for specific tumblrs that fit your desired style, typing in fuckyeah[style].tumblr.com always works for me. Once you've found a tumblr blog you love check out the blogs they follow and go from there, it's also worth creating your own account. Tumblr is like a massive inspiration folder we can share with each other and view whenever we want.
- Blogs - Obviously I can't recommend every blog that could possibly relate to your style, once again it's up to you to discover them. If your style taste is quite mainstream you could easily look on Independent Fashion Bloggers, or if your style is vintage or Gothic I recommend taking a look at who I follow because I personally love these styles.
- Weheartit - Similar to Tumblr.
- Livejournal style communities - for example EGL if you prefer Lolita or
- Deviantart - art based website but the photography is worth looking at.
- Flickr - a photography website but also look out for scans, this is my go to site for vintage photography.
- Online collections via Vogue, Elle and Harper's Bazaar.
Offline inspiration is easily available as well:
- Style magazines such as Vogue, Elle, Alt Fashion, Gothic Beauty, etc.
- Magazines in general.
- Fashion shows - even if you don't get invited it's great to hang around outside and nosy at the people going in, plenty of bloggers and other stylish people lurk outside hoping to be spotted.
- Films and TV shows - related to your style of course, for example Mad Men would be brilliant for a Vintage girl.
- Books and characters.
- Art galleries.
