Are you bored of looking in the mirror and seeing the same old style? Want to try something new but don’t know where to start? Here are some very simple things you can to revamp your wardrobe and shake up your style right now:
Simple Ways to Shake Up Your Style
Wear Things A Different Way
One of the easiest ways to revamp your style is not to go out and buy a whole new wardrobe but to instead look at the things you already own in a new light. Put your creative hat on and look at new ways of wearing things. For example, that sweater you always wear with jeans might look great when layered under a sundress or that blazer you always wear with a pencil skirt might look great with jeans, boots and a band t-shirt - experiment and you never know what new looks you might stumble upon without having to spend even a single penny in the process.
Don't Be A Slave To Seasons
Most of us have clothes that we wear in the spring/summer and clothes that we wear in fall/winter. If you’re looking to shale up your style, why not break those boundaries and wear whatever you want whenever you want even if you wouldn’t usually. There’ no reason why you can’t wear that floral sundress with thicker stockings and a sweater to make it suitable for the fall or why you can’t wear your favorite winter boots with shorts and a t-shirt in the summer if that’s what you really want to do.
Change The Shape Of Your Spectacles
If you wear glasses or even sunglasses, something that can make a surprising amount of difference to your style switching the shape of your eyewear. Depending on whether you have square, oval, or round glasses, your face can look a whole lot different, as can your style. So, whether you favor the popular but classic Ray-Bans or you love the cat eyes look, experiment outside your comfort zone and you might be surprised by how transformative a change of glasses can be.
If you’re good with a sewing machine, a sure-fire way to shake up your style is by altering your outfits. The simple act of adding a zipper to a shirt that used to be fastened with buttons, sewing diamante accents on the shoulders of a plain t-shirt, or taking the hem up on your jeans can be totally transformative. If you don’t know how to sew, there are lots of really good online tutorials that will teach you. Failing that, you could always visit a tailor.
Try New Colors
If you’re like most people, you have a handful of colors that you feel comfortable wearing on a regular basis. They feel safe and you know you look good in them, but everyone is so used to seeing you in them that they no longer feel stylish enough. Change them. Try new colors and see how they make you feel. You may have to be brave, especially if your usual uniform consists of lots of blacks, whites, and navies, but it will be worth it when you wow people with that orange dress or bright red blazer so give it a go - what do you have to lose?
Revamp Your Hair & Makeup
Changing your hair and makeup is really easy to do, but it can give you a whole new image, and since it does not have to be permanent, you can experiment with a new style pretty much every day if you choose to do so. For example, if you usually have poker-straight hair, curling it can take you from a smart sophisticated look to a wilder freer one or if you usually wear minimal, natural makeup, doing something more dramatic can give you a real lift, Get onto Youtube and try out a few tutorials until you find something you love.
Go Into Detail
Accessories are another really simple way of shaking up your style. From adding a silk scarf to a plain outfit to wearing trainers, instead of heels, with your best dress, there are so many simple accessory additions/switches that will revamp your wardrobe in an instant. If you don’t usually bother with accessories, the impact they have ill be even more noticeable, so don’t be afraid to rock a big pair of dangly earrings or a vintage broach if you’re looking to shake up your style.
Creating a new look, as you can see, doesn’t have to be expensive or even difficult - it’s all about getting playful and using the resources you have to create something new.
