The best place to be right now is TikTok and with FUCHSIA’s ‘TikTok 101’ you’ll always be on top of trends and hacks! Are you tired of jumping headfirst into the latest TikTok “aesthetic” and keeping up with fast fashion trends? Then this article is for you! Today we’re going to tell you about the 3-word method currently taking over fashion TikTok. Curious? Read on to find out what it is and how it can help you find and curate your personal style!
What’s The 3-Word Method?
It’s always bothersome trying to figure out what you’ll wear every day. You might invest in a capsule wardrobe with pieces that cohesively go together and make you look put together, but they may strip you of your self-expression and personal style. Or you will splurge and go on a shopping spree to get clothes you’ll probably only wear twice. Thus begins the endless cycle of rearranging your closet in an effort to put together an outfit that makes you feel and look good. But honestly, who has the time for all that? Here’s where the 3- word method comes in!
Created by stylist Allison Bornstein on TikTok, the 3-word method will help you ‘define and refine the details of your personal style’. Though it may sound complex, the 3-word method is essentially describing your closet or your aspirational style with three adjectives. Still confused? Let us simplify the process with two steps:
Step 1: How To Find The 3 Words That Describe Your Style
The first step is grabbing pieces you gravitate towards daily – your go-to pieces, and describing their visual aesthetics, for example, casual or formal, baggy or tailored, whimsical or neutral, etc. Looking for similarities in silhouettes, prints and colours can further help you narrow down key information about the way you dress. The first word in the 3-word method will serve as a base for your outfit, while the other two will help add personal style and flair. For example, you can describe your personal style as – Minimal, Soft & Neutral.
Step 2: Using The 3 Words To Curate Your Wardrobe
Here comes the fun part! While curating or shopping for your wardrobe, you’ll use the 3-words that you’ve come up with in Step 1 as a checklist to figure out what’ll make the cut. No 3-words are alike and this will help you achieve a unique and more genuine look! This process will make you a more conscious shopper that only invests in pieces they are most likely to wear.
However, it’s important to note that personal style is a journey and constantly evolving, so the 3-word method isn’t a rule set in stone, it’s meant to grow with you and only serves as a guide that offers insight into who you are at a certain point in time and what you can do to style yourself to look your best!
