Fashion is a form of self-expression that everyone can do. If you shy away from fashion, it is not because you lack “style.” You just need more ideas, so with the right bit of help and confidence, you can have a great closet and develop your personal style!
Here are some tips to help you curate a wardrobe and learn what your own style is.
Add a Few Statement Pieces and Make Changes
Luckily for you, you do not have to buy a whole new wardrobe. You can look at what you have after you cleared out your closet and see how you can improve from there. You can make a few small changes – for instance; you can try to buy one skirt to wear with your favorite tops to give your jeans a break.
You can also get a few unique statement pieces, such as a big necklace or get cute accessories to compliment the rest of your outfit, like a 14k rose gold anklet.
Assess Your Wardrobe
Before you go crazy by shopping online or in the malls, you should start shopping in your closet first. Take out everything in your closet and look for clothes that you love and wear all the time and get rid of the clothes you never wear.
Even if you think that the old shirt is cute, you haven’t worn it in five years, so are you going to wear it in the future? If not, you can sell or donate it so someone can make the most out of it. Once you get rid of the clothes you don’t use, you will be left with clothes that you love, and you can get a good idea of what your style is.
Go For It
If you walk down the street and see a person with an awesome pair of boots, you might think, “I love those boots.” If you like them, why don’t you get them? If you notice that you compliment people on certain clothing pieces a lot, there is a chance that it is something you would like to wear.
You do not have to go out and buy everything that you want right away, but if you have been eyeing your friend’s grungy look, then you should try to grab a pair of combat boots.
Go to New Stores
If your closet looks too similar or you know that pretty much all of it comes from the same four stores, then you need to make a change. You might feel bored with your clothes because you are shopping at the same stores. You can go online to look at designers to see what catches your eye.
A fun and affordable way to add more diversity to your closet is by going to a thrift shop to get vintage, one-of-a-kind pieces to add to your wardrobe.
Get New Outerwear
You can easily style up a basic outfit with outerwear, especially if you live in a chillier area. You can dress up your regular tank top and jeans with a cool leather jacket. You could get a light and sweet cardigan to go with your flowy dress and sandals.
You can instantly make your trousers and button-up shirt look more professional by throwing on a blazer. Outerwear can easily define the tone of your outfit, so you should invest in a few good pieces.
You do not have to be shy when it comes to style. Try out the tips above to improve your confidence, style, and closet!
