Ladies! It’s time to individualize your style!
One of the things that I love most about fashion is its versatility. If you watch a fashion show or you flick through the pages of a glossy magazine, you’ll come across a host of trends and an array of different looks.
When it comes to customizing your style, putting outfits together is a means of celebrating your personality and showcasing your individual taste. If you’re wanting to be more confident and update your look, here are some simple steps you can take.
1. Shop alone.
It can be incredibly fun to organize a girl’s day out or hit the shops with your partner, but all too often, we get influenced by others.
If you find yourself leaving items on the rack or putting them back on the shelf after taking a trip to the fitting room because others aren’t sure about them, now is the time to embrace solo shopping.
When you shop alone, you can try on whatever you want, and you can make judgments based on what you think, what you like, and how you feel.
Accessorizing is a brilliant way to put your stamp on different looks. I personally love accessorizing with large, vintage earrings.Even the most basic, classic outfit can be customized and personalized with a selection of accessories that complements your individual style.
From your engagement and wedding rings and the earrings or bracelets you wear on your wedding day to costume jewelry, hats, bags or statement boots to jazz up a plain tee and jeans, accessories can work wonders.
You can make the same outfit look completely unique by switching up your jewelry, adding a belt, hat or bag or changing your shoes.
3. Get out of your comfort zone.
Many of us hold back when we get dressed for a specific occasion. We choose the same clothes from the closet, and we stick to a template we know works when looking for new additions to our wardrobes.
It’s fantastic to learn what suits you, and it’s great to have individual items you love, but don’t get stuck in a rut or create a pigeon-hole for your style.
Sometimes, it pays to get out of your comfort zone and try new things. Don’t assume that a certain color doesn’t suit you or that you can never wear a jumpsuit or a dress because you live in jeans.
Try different styles and pieces on, and then make a decision. You might be surprised at what you see in the mirror and how you feel.
4. Don’t follow the crowd.
It’s very common to spot photos of celebrities or models in magazines and assume that you need to buy specific items or follow set trends to be fashionable.
While there’s nothing wrong with taking inspiration from others, you don’t have to follow the crowds to be en vogue.
Don’t feel like you have to wear skinny jeans or embrace the neon trend if you don’t feel comfortable in bright colors, and you know that cut doesn’t suit you.
Go with trends and individual items that you love.
If you would love to feel more confident about your look, there are myriad ways you can celebrate your personal style and customize your wardrobe.
Shop solo, be prepared to try a host of different styles and items on, use accessories to personalize your looks and resist the temptation to follow trends that you don’t want to buy into.
