Allow yourself to experiment
You know that shirt that you loved in the store, but never mustered up the courage to wear in real life? Time to break it out.
Allow yourself to take some time to put together outfit combinations that you wouldn’t ordinarily try — the bold ones that are out of your comfort zone — to let yourself reinvent your style. You’ll never know what styles might make you feel great until you try them.Fashion really is a way of expressing who you are, or who you’re becoming. It’s something to be enjoyed and have fun with. So if you’re denying yourself this freedom of expression, then think about why you’re telling yourself you can’t wear certain things.
ONE PIECE AT A TIME
If you wish you could wear every colour of the rainbow, start with one colourful piece, whether it’s a blouse or a jacket. Or if you want to mix prints like a fashion influencer, take your guide from the style icons who do it best and start introducing the prints on their own before combining them
If sequins or luxe fabrics are your thing, try dressing them down with more casual every-day pieces so you don’t feel quite so self-conscious. You’re effectively smuggling them in, disguised as something more casual than they are. Never underestimate the power of white fashion trainers to tone-down the most extravagant pieces.
Your personality is constantly evolving. Think about it. You are not the same person as you were ten years ago, are you? So you don’t have to dress the same way as you always have. And yes, people might comment on your changing style. You just need to keep reminding yourself that this is who you are.
The most-loved items in your closet that you already have combined with others that you rarely wear can give you a whole new look without any shopping at all.
