  • Hi.. I'm Linda Otiende; a Personal Style Blogger. I think fashion and style is all about creativity; playing around with what you have to create something unique and stylish out of it. Blogging about my personal style is an interest I developed about three years ago when I discovered that as ladies, we really go to certain extremes to look good. Yes, we gotta look good but at the end of the day that does not mean that we have to wear the most expensive clothes or shoes to be stylish. You can actually work it out in the cheapest of them yet still ooze class! So welcome to my blog where I will get to show you my personal style and how I manage to look good on a budget. I do hope you enjoy.

    Just two more days and its a wrap! Unbelievable, right? I am most definitely looking forward to 2016 as I have so much in store for you on the blog. 

    I sincerely want to thank all of you who've always spared a few minutes to drop by my blog and even comment. You are just awesome and may God bless you and increase you. A big shout out to all my blogger friends; you all are awesome and I hope to meet you one of these days. 

    With that I will share with you some of my best looks from 2015.

    Wishing you all a Prosperous 2016 and may the Lord continue to bless you. 

    Much Love,
    Linda's World of Style.

    1. Accessorize
    This is the best fashion tip of all times. Accessorizing an outfit just takes it to a whole new level. By accessories here I mean hats, jewelry, belts, scarves etc



    2.Experiment
    Stop playing safe. Experiment with as many color combos as you can. That way you even get to know what colors bring out the best in you. Wearing color actually does wonders to your whole appearance so I challenge you to come out of your comfort zones.

    3. Show skin strategically
    Just how much is too much? If you want to show a bit of leg, stick to that. If you are the 'no sleeves' type, go ahead and if its cleavage just stick to that. Too much can turn out to be sleazy.

    4. Embrace your shape
    Am too curvy?! Am too slim?! Stop complaining and embrace yourself the way you are. Use what you have to bring out the best. If you are curvy then dress your curves. If you are slim; find something that works for you e.g don't go for clingy clothes coz they'll make you look slimmer but instead go for stripes (horizontal), heavy prints, peplums etc

    5. Invest in staples
    When you invest in wardrobe staples you will never be worried about what to wear. 

    It is smart to invest in timeless staples because they never go out of style and in any case you can build the rest of your wardrobe around them Style Guide




    6. Invest in a good tailor
    Once in a while its good to have your clothes tailored. It is inexpensive and you get clothes that fit you perfectly. And what's even best is that a year down the line you can still take it back to the tailor for alterations depending on whether you've gained or lost.


    7. Be comfortable in what you wear 
    Never at any given time should you sacrifice your comfort for fashion. Do not suffer in that 6 inch heel or micro skirt just because you want to be the center of attention. Style and confidence go hand in hand. 



    8. Dress for yourself
    When you dress for others then you lose your self confidence because at the end of the day you are trying to impress others which shouldn't be the case. Dress up because you want to and that way you will feel comfortable and confident.

    Some time back I did a post on how to look good in black. In case you missed out, no need to worry..here's the link How to look good in black 


    One of the tips I shared was that when wearing an all black outfit, you can go for a colorful bag/clutch purse or even shoes that will give the whole outfit an attractive look and break the monotony. So for today's look, I decided to throw in a pair of leopard print heels and a colorful bag. 


    Do enjoy and have an awesome week ahead.


    Yours,Linda's World of Style

    For quite a while now, pink has been considered a girlish color...reason? I really don't know. But can you imagine a guy in pink shoes, a pink suit or even a pink phone..super weird right..? Yet for us ladies it feels just normal but hey! That doesn't mean that guyz shouldn't be seen in pink outfits. It looks ok when done in a not so noticeable way; say when worn in stripes, plaid, polka etc. But guyz if you are the daring type and you are sure to rock your pink well, go ahead and slay!

    Enjoy today's post and have an awesome weekend ahead.

    Yours,
