Stuck in a style rut? It can be hard to come up with new ideas for how to change your style. If you’re running low on ideas, I’ve put together a few tips that have helped me get out of my style rut before, and .you don’t have to have a lot of money or be red hot on fashion trends to do it.
The inspired changes I’ve listed below are attainable for pretty much anyone, so don’t put yourself down or tell yourself that you’re just not great at improving your look. It’s all about trying new styles and combinations until you find a style that excites you. Be free-thinking and adventurous because it always pays off!
Clear Out Your Closet
The very first thing you need to do is have a clearout of your closet. This will allow you to get rid of all the things that are taking up space that could otherwise be filled by new items that you might actually get some use out of in the months ahead. Anything that you don’t wear should be ditched because that’s a sure sign that you don’t really like it, even if you tell yourself you do.
Plus, it’s actually therapeutic! Clearing out all the old tat really clears your mind as you go, and makes you feel amazing at the end!
Take Inspiration From Others
There are plenty of people you can take inspiration from in terms of style and fashion. If you’re not sure which direction to take, the best thing you can do is look at the ideas other people are choosing to opt for. This will provide you with the inspiration you need. Steal ideas from wherever you find them and then modify them so that they suit you and your personal tastes better.
I search Instagram and Pinterest for blogger style regularly, and often find bloggers wearing sassy High Street finds that aren’t expensive. Also, have a watch of some fashion bloggers Insta stories – they often have exclusive codes and if you swipe up, you can shop at discounts!
Choose a Few Themes and Play Around With Them
Selecting a few fashion themes and ideas and then playing around with them until you find something that’s right for you is definitely a good idea. It gives you the chance to use your creative and think for yourself a little. And this becomes so much easier because you have the structure that comes with having already chose a few themes and ideas to focus on. So give it a try; you might be surprised by what you come up with.
Have Fun With Your Hairstyle
Your hairstyle will have a big impact on your style and how you look, so why not do something completely different with it? It could be the thing that completely changes your appearance and even adds something to outfits that previously appeared dull and boring. There are ideas you can view on therighthairstyles.com.
I noticed how different I looked when I got my hair extensions, and they made me look so much more girlier! I felt I could carry off shorter dress styles and more ‘prettier’ outfits, as my hair actually worked into these outfits a little more, if that makes sense!
Make Interesting Use of Accessories
Accessories are a vital part of your look, but they’re so often overlooked in favour of bigger fashion items. You can make even the most basic clothes pop and feel far more exciting if you combine them with interesting and visually appealing accessories, such as jewellery. So try to remember this next time you’re aiming to overhaul your approach to style and fashion. It can also cut your expenses too because you’ll end up spending less on clothes.
Alter an Existing Piece of Clothing
If you have a piece of clothing that has an interesting pattern or design put you don’t like the way it fits or looks when you’re wearing it, you could always alter it in some way. That way, you can get something out of it without having to put up with the aspects of the clothing that you don’t really like. You can be as creative as you want to when you do this, just make sure you know the practical basics before starting.
Go Back to Basics
Going back to basics can be important when you don’t know which route to take with your fashion style. By focusing on the fundamentals, you’ll ensure you always have the right starting point from which to launch off and try new things with your fashion style. This should be one of the first things you focus on when you want to make a change.
