Are you stuck in a fashion rut? All too often women stare into a closet full of clothes and proclaim that they have nothing to wear. Does this sound familiar? Shopping just to shop, or retail therapy as it’s often referred to does result in a closet full of clothes with nothing to wear. Follow these suggestions from personal stylists to ramp up your personal style. The most important this wear each and every day is a quiet self-confidence and genuine smile. Layer that with your own unique fashion sense. Don’t fall prey to every new fashion piece that emerges in stores and magazines. The easiest way to update a classic outfit is with accessories.
Anchors of your Wardrobe
Select quality pieces that flatter your figure and layer from there. Remember that quality always trumps quantity. Well-tailored pieces from quality fabrics that have a quality drape will last longer than most disposable clothing purchased at lower-end department stores. A well-cut pair of black trousers and a stylish jacket or blazer for layering should be the anchors of your wardrobe.
Add pizzazz with accessories. Avoid the temptation to purchase single items if you’re not confident that you have a piece in your closet to pair it with. If you bring your purchase home and it doesn’t combine well, commit to returning it.
Keep it in Perspective
Another great way to ramp up your personal style is to rethink your hairstyle and make-up routine. Take advantage of the awesome deals offered by Groupon coupons and check out the huge variety of make-up and hair care products offered at ULTA. Book a consultation with your hairstylist and let them know you’d like a new, low maintenance style that is more up to date. This won’t necessarily involve a dramatic new cut, but can just involve new styling techniques. Naming a baby is a big decision, selecting a new way to style your hair isn’t.
Trust your Instincts
Wear what makes you feel like the best version of yourself. If you have more of a feminine-meets-classic style, like Lauren Conrad, wearing edgy pieces are going to look unnatural. Similarly, if you align with Rihanna’s tough-meets-glamorous looks, a twinset would look downright funny. You’ve likely already got a sense of killer style, so embrace it, and refine it, don’t fight it.
Between updating your wardrobe following these suggestions and stepping out of your comfort zone with a new hairstyle and make-up, you’ll be on your way to ramping up your personal style. Good luck to you!
