Tips to Switch Up Your Style This Month
Whether you’re bored with your wardrobe or you want to expand your style, you can switch things up by making changes to the way you dress. By styling pieces in new and unique ways, you can gain a better understanding of what silhouettes make the most sense for you. You can also learn more about what articles of clothing help you feel the most like yourself. You can even push yourself out of your comfort zone and try new things as an opportunity for self-growth. Here are some tips to switch up your style this month:
The first thing you can do to switch up your style is starting slow. Take your wardrobe essentials and tweak them a bit. For example, you can take the blouse you wear often and try styling it in a different way. Maybe you usually wear it buttoned all the way up with a skirt, but you can try undoing a few buttons and styling it with a pair of denim. You can also elevate your more casual pieces. Try taking that T-shirt you wear on the weekends when you’re lounging around the house and cuff the sleeves and tuck it into a maxi skirt. By taking the pieces you already feel comfortable in and styling them in new ways, you can expand your creativity and allow your style to grow.
Another way you can switch up your style is by accessorizing. Something as simple as adding a necklace to your outfit can take your look to the next level. If you already wear accessories with your outfits, try wearing accessories that are out of your comfort zone. For example, maybe you exclusively wear stud earrings. Instead of wearing your go-to studs, try a pair of hoops or a statement earring. Even though this change seems small, it can make a big difference in your style. Other accessorizing tips include adding patterned tights under your skirts, styling casual looks with statement bags, and adding hats to your outfits.
Even though you have a closet full of clothes, you probably only wear certain tops with certain bottoms. Try pairing things that you don’t normally wear together to expand the number of outfits you can create with your current wardrobe. In doing so, you can get more wear out of some of your favorite pieces. You can also experiment with new looks to transform your style.
None of the clothing you purchase from a store has to be in its final form. Maybe you love the color of the skirt you just bought, but it’s a little longer than you like. Or perhaps you love the scarf you purchased, but you don’t have a lot of outfits to wear it with. Take that skirt and shorten it either by yourself or at a tailor. As for the scarf, get creative and style it as a wrap top. The possibilities are endless, so get creative and customize items to your liking.
The final step in switching up your style is adding confidence. At first, you may feel uneasy about your new looks. However, once you gain confidence in your styling abilities, you can truly shine!
