Hey so like the title says, I want to find my style, Im going to uni this October and I want to completely revamp my wardrobe.
I like the indie/ rock look but I am not comfterable in wearing all black, rips, heavy chains etc.

I also love the cottage core look as many people say it matches with my personality in terms of my innocence or something like that lol, but I also want that slight bit of alternative/ and indie look to it....

I adore y2k but its a bit too flashy for me, but there styles and clothes in this aesthetic that I would defo wear, like eg I know a lot of Britney Spears' (love her) outfits are associated with this aesthetic.

Im just so clueless right now, I want a style that is flashy, neat but also expressive, if that makes sense.

Any ideas?

You don’t need one style. Don’t look for a trend. If you like it, buy it and wear it. Create your own.
How you feel day to day will vary. So go with it.
Try vintage and charity shops for bargains and adapt things to save money.
I’m a lot older than you and don’t have one style. Some days I’m in a girly tea dress, others full on biker.
Wear what makes you happy

People usually don't have a particular style and just wear what's comfortable for them and what they feel they look good in. If you choose outfits based on what you're comfortable with wearing, you'll eventually come into your own unique style cuz why go with just one style or aesthetic when you can literally make your own? Be a trendsetter not a trend follower ❤️

I don't know why people think they have to have a certain style.
You wear whatever you feel like keeping in mind the situation, e.g. you are not going to wear a ballgown to uni.

Buy a range of different things that you like and think suits you, and wear them at what you feel would be suitable occasions for that particlar style.

My personal must haves
A skirt which pairs with many different tops
Jumpers/sweaters which would match most outfits
Shirt dresses, esp the neutral coloured ones which can pair with almost anything

Etc I like things that can pair with a range of other things easily and not look odd to me.

Definitely agree with this. It's always good to experiment with different outfits/ styles instead of feeling you have to conform to a particular look.
