1.Don’t Be Afraid to Try Something New
One thing that my mom always is “you never know until you try ”. I’m so used to wearing basics, when I go shopping I always go toward the plain colours. I’m usually hesitant on trying different colours because I’m always afraid that I have nothing to wear with colours.
The best part about bright colours is that they can be paired with basics. This means I’m able to tie in the colours I love wearing with a little pop of colour.
It’s insane how some colour and transform an outfit. Sometimes you’ll be suprised how a piece of clothing that you never thought would look good, looks amazing. Don’t be afraid to try new pieces.
This outfit looks amazing because she added a pop of colour with her bright coral jeans. If I saw a pair of coral jeans sitting on a shelf at the store I would be hesitant on picking them up but seeing how they look with basic colours it’s definitely an outfit I would wear.
Inspiration is everywhere! You can type in google “spring outfits for 2017” and a bunch of links come up with trendy outfits for this year.
Another way I like to find inspiration is Tumblr. Tumblr has some of the most amazing outfits to grab inspiration from.
Here’s an example of how you can find inspiration. All I did was google “dressy Tumblr outfits” and all of these pictures come up. Now I can go through the images and see what outfits I like. Then I can use those images for inspiration to create my own outfit.
3. Find out what you consider fashionable
This is something that won’t be the same for anyone because everyone has their own view of what’s stylish.
I personally feel you’re most confident in the clothes you feel comfortable in. I love wearing jeans, hoodies, graphic tees, and sneakers. Those are the clothing items I feel most confident in so to me that is what’s most fashionable.
4. Become a Smart Shopper
This may seem like a given but it can be difficult. For example, when I go shopping I always head toward the jeans, sweaters, and t-shirt sections at every store. With that being said I have a ton of all of those clothing items to last me my entire lifetime. The last thing I need are more of those items in my closet.
Ask yourself what’s missing from your closet?
I can use more accessories such as hats, jewellery, and glasses to add to my outfit. So instead of shopping for the items that I want I shop for the items that I need. Know what items you need more of before shopping and look for those specific items when shopping.
5. Size Doesn’t Matter
Nobody knows what size you are but yourself. As long as you feel confident and beautiful in what you’re wearing that’s all that matters.
If you feel beautiful in the outfit that you’re wearing, that’s all that matters. Confidence is one thing that will never go out of style.
