A new year often brings around new changes. As a result, you are presented with the perfect opportunity to ‘shake up’ your style in favor of something new. However, that is often easier said than done. If you feel particularly comfortable dressing one way, it can be challenging to break this pattern to try something new, even if you feel like a change. However, enacting positive changes can help you feel more beautiful, more confident and overall happier!
With that in mind, here are some simple ways you can change your style in 2021!
Out with the old
Look through your wardrobe and pull out the clothes you no longer wear. Whether they have fallen out of fashion, or don’t fit right – there’s no reason for keeping them. They are just taking up space in your wardrobe. However, instead of throwing them away, consider donating them to charity or selling them online to earn extra cash. You can then use this money to invest in a new wardrobe!
Bring in the new
Once you’ve emptied your wardrobe somewhat, it’s time to buy new clothes. You can save money by shopping second hand. However, when it comes to shopping, try not to stick to exactly what you know – challenge yourself to step out of your comfort zone. For example, for every two items you buy, one of them should be something you’ve never really worn before. Whether that means bright colours, different fabrics or bold patterns – this is a great way to introduce change to your wardrobe gradually.
Don’t forget accessories
Accessories have a real effect on how an outfit looks and can be used to express your individuality and personal style. Therefore, don’t be afraid to go bold in 2021 when it comes to accessories. For example, if you’ve always dreamed of getting a lip piercing, its time to pucker up! There are many different types of lip piercings to choose from, so be sure to ask for advice beforehand. This will allow you to make the right decision for your needs and desires.
Visit the salon
Many of us stick to one haircut at a time for several years. This is due to the simple fact that it is familiar. We know how to style it and how it will look at certain times. We know that we feel comfortable with that hair. However, now is the time to take a risk and choose a new hairstyle. It does not have to be a dramatic change, perhaps you dye your hair a slightly darker shade, or cut it a little shorter – just enough of a difference for you to notice it. You’d be surprised about the confidence you can get from a simple trim!
Know your style
It can be hard to describe our style to others outright, but if you want to introduce change, you need to gain a clear understanding of what you like. For example, if you want to go for a contemporary smart casual look, you need to be kept up to date with precisely what that is. To do this, follow fashion bloggers with similar styles, or browse through magazines and take notes of the product you like!
