Defining a Style Aesthetic

     You've probably heard the word "aesthetic" being thrown around a lot especially if you're on Tumblr(if you are make sure you add me to your dash by the way, shehastheeye.tumblr.com). You'll see a picture of a plate of chilli cheese fries and it's captioned "my aesthetic", or a picture of thunderous dark clouds and it's labelled "my aesthetic" , people are applying this word to any and all things so lets start off with consulting Google for a proper definition of this word.

aes·thet·ic
esˈTHedik/
adjective
  1. 1.
    concerned with beauty or the appreciation of beauty.
    "the pictures give great aesthetic pleasure"

noun
  1. 1.
    a set of principles underlying and guiding the work of a particular artist or artistic movement.
    "the Cubist aesthetic"



      Aesthetic is either an adjective in describing what you consider beautiful or it's a noun for a set of principles you operate by. Today we're going to discuss style aesthetics in terms of the set of rules you apply to your personal style. I know I've preached on here about having pure unadulterated freedom with your clothing choices but you can't deny that we all have a few particular things we're drawn to and we're drawn to putting them together a certain kind of way. Your style aesthetics are those personal clothing choices that go unspoken. For me, my aesthetic lies in vintage jewelry. Although I like many different kinds of jewelry I can't deny that I've always had an appreciation for jewelry that looks like it could of been worn by a queen of some sort.
