Feeling stuck in the same style routine is the most powerful indication that is high time for change. If you are reluctant to make radical changes when it comes to style, a good way to start is by finding ways to spice up your current outfits. Often, small changes can have a dramatic effect so you should definitely consider this alternative if you are eager to diversify your style.
When it comes to fashion feeling too comfortable with our style
can be a dangerous mindset as it can quickly make us fall into the
trap of following the same routine and avoid diversifying our
style. While having a signature style is highly recommended,
it's important to realize that our sense of style will suffer a
series of transformations throughout our life and that the best way
to make to ensure that we make the most flattering choices is to
experiment often and with a lot of different styles.
Finding ways to spice up our current outfits is an easy way to make a smooth, painless transition towards a slightly different and a more interesting style. There are several approaches when it comes to style changes depending on the changes that you feel most comfortable doing. Here are a few examples of approaches that might work for when trying to spice up your outfits:
Experimenting with different accessories is by far the easiest and most painless ways to spice up any outfit. Even if you already use this method to add a personal touch to your outfits, you might benefit from trying a different style of accessories compared to the one that you are using right now.
A different style of accessories immediately increases the versatility of your outfits and allows you to get a taste of various fashion influences from different time decades you might not have though of trying. All in all accessories are a great way to explore various possibilities without feeling that you are losing your fashion personality. A different set of jewelry, scarfs, hair accessories and different shoe styles are all good choices when trying to create a new style.
Update your clothes
Another intuitive way to spice out your outfits is to learn how to update your own clothes. This usually requires some practical abilities and might be a little more time consuming however it can have huge benefits both for your style as well as for your budget because it gives you complete control over your outfits allowing you to create one of a kind clothing items that will still reflect your personal style although in a slightly different manner. Learning some basic sewing skills as well as working with fabric glue are good alternatives for radical changes, however easier techniques such as transforming and long jeans into new pair of shorts are more recommended if you are beginner. After you gain a little experience you can experiment with adding ribbons, buttons, embellishments and other elements you might like.
Organize a fashion swap party
Another easy way to spice up your wardrobe is to organize a clothes swap party with your girlfriends. If you are like most people you probably have friends that have similar tastes in fashion with a few different touches. This will allow you to make a subtle style change without stepping too far out of your comfort zone and enrich your wardrobe with a new set of items you love. On the other hand if your friends have different fashion styles you will have the opportunity to experiment with a new style without having to buy a whole set of new clothes you might not wear if you decide you don't like the style after all.
Try different styles and colors
Wearing bolder colors is a great step for creating a more interesting and daring style. Avoid matching the colors of your accessories with the colors of the outfit and go instead for colors that belong to the same palette as the dominant colors of your outfit and you'll immediately see the difference. Also try different hairstyles and makeup techniques. While it might seem that that they have little to do when it comes to creating a more interesting outfit it might give your clothes a whole new lease of life by making you look more interesting.
