How do I get a better sense of fashion and style?

I have a very bad sense of fashion. Every time I go to a store, I can’t really tell which shirt or outfit is pretty or not pretty. My mom usually picks out most of my clothes and I have very little clothes because I don’t have the time to go shopping and when I do go, I don’t know what to buy. I read fashion magazines but I just don’t have a very good sense of fashion. When I do like a piece of clothing, I always end up thinking that someone else would think that its ugly and end up not buying it.

Hi, I believe every person has problems with styling how to team different items together to look great and it not always depends on sense of style, more often it depends on mood and how you perceive yourself. If you are not sure in yourself you always will think that this clothes don’t look on you good. First of all you should train yourself how to be confident in any outfit. It’s probably the most difficult step, because second step how to choose clothes from shop it’s very easy even if you don’t think so.
So for beginning you need to find out which color pallet is yours (summer, winter, autumn or spring), because not all colors are suitable for everybody, in some of them some of people look great or can look washed out if colors are opted wrong.
According to your personal color pallet you can choose later your hair color right. Also you can choose haircut flattering to your face shape correctly, using this link http://beauty.about.com/od/hairbasics/a/flattering.htm
Then, you need to find out which shape is your body (apple, pear, sporty).
And every time when you go shopping you should remember about your color pallet and body shape. Approaching and buying clothes, only those one, which is from your color pallet and body shape save a lot of time and money, because you will know exactly that for example if you have wide shoulders you should buy jumpers only with V-neck even if you like boat neck. There are a lot of tricks to make your body shape ideal even so its not, just using right clothes.
If you are not fashion trendsetter and this is really difficult to play around different styles, opt for classic style. It means basic wardrobe with 10 basic items such as: shirt, jeans, pants, jacket,sweater, ballets, pumps, tunic, trench coat, dress. All these items must be in neutral colors from your color pallet, if white color is not flattering to you go for ivory or beige. When you buy all these essential items you can play already around this, for example you can afford to buy blouse with geometrical print or even animal print because you can wear this with navy jeans, black pants and black pencil skirt, and you will look always elegant. When you buy something remember one important rule "buy new item only if you can team it with three others from your wardrobe, if not – forget about it, look for another." Now a lot of different styles so you never will get lost you can do everything what you want just remember to be yourself. Here are some fashion blogs for inspiration, I would recommend them more rather then reading fashion magazines, just because there are real girls who are not models and who also making efforts as you.

    Okay, here’s the thing. Fashion is hard to have a good sense of. I shop every now and then, and often I have trouble figuring out what’s ‘in’ or isn’t. What I try to do is just pick out some random tops that is a similar style to what I may have seen a fashionable person wear and see how they look on me. I also try to find things that I think would be pretty with something I already have. I might like something at first and end up hating it and vice versa so it gets hard. My advice would be to pay attention to what you see other people and try to just get over the fact that one person might not like it. What colors do you like? Patterns? Combine personal style and trends, and you will do great! Be open to branching out and maybe ask friends for help. The main thing is to wear what you think looks good. No one else’s opinion matters. People often don’t judge you on your fashion sense anyway! A good personality is ten times better, trust me. Good luck!

    I believe everyone has their own sense of style. You shouldn’t care what people think. Who knows maybe you can start your own fashion trend. Be a leader not a follower. What I do when I go to stores/malls. I try on clothing, mix and match. If to me it looks good, i buy it. You can, as you said, read fashion magazines, articles on color matching etc. Just remember to be you.
