I think we all occasionally think about switching up our style. Celebrities do it all the time, so why can’t we?! Why can’t we show up to a party or event looking completely different? It doesn’t even have to be for a special event. It could be a mundane, day at the office. The fact is that a new style could give you the confidence that you need to close that deal with a client. Or, to alter your fate by asking a guy you like out. It could change everything, and that’s why I think you should consider it. But how can you change your style without spending a fortune and a lot of time? Here are a few ideas:
Purge Your Wardrobe
The first possibility that I would suggest is to purge your wardrobe. Or at the very least, pack away non-essentials to make room for some new purchases. You can find some great dresses on fashion websites that could make you look fantastic and feeling like a brand new person. But don’t stop there. You should also go out and purchase some new tops, shoes, and skirts. Anything and everything, to mix and match and create a new wardrobe with a different style.
Buy New Accessories
Of course, we all know that a new wardrobe needs the accessories to match. Otherwise, the outfit isn’t going to pop as it should. You’re going to fade into the crowd, and that’s not the goal. You want to get your monies worth – you want to stand out! You should grab a few new bags and perhaps some jewelry that goes with your new clothes (shop sales and clearance). Remember, certain types of jewelry have different effects. For instance, if you want to take the focus away from the lower half of your body, you should dress up the top half – draw the eye upwards.
Get Your Hair Styled
I love going to get my hair styled. But rather than have a particular style in mind or even choosing one, I let the stylist choose it for me. Risky, I know. But if you trust the person styling your hair, and you’ve been going to them for years, they’ll know what suits you. They’ll also know what you’d like, so let them experiment. You might love the results you get with this particular dare. Don’t forget that the style of your hair and what suits you will depend on two things: You’ll need to consider your head shape and the thickness of your hair. This is especially important to remember if you are seeking to duplicate a celebrity style cut.
Lastly, don’t forget that it’s not just about the clothes you wear or the accessories you buy. You need to think about your persona and how you feel. Many people wonder what makes fashion models so stunning. Is it their beauty or the outfits they wear? Maybe, but if you’ve ever watched a fashion show you’ll know some of the outfits are ridiculous. No one in their right mind would wear them on the street. Yet, the models still look stunning. Why is this? It’s confidence. If you look and act confident, you will always be stunning no matter what your style. Don’t be afraid to try something new!
