Fashion is always evolving, isn’t it? Fashion is an exciting and fun world but seems so intimidating to some of us. We get stuck in a rut where all we wear is yoga pants and t-shirt or slacks and sweaters and we are afraid to try anything new. It happens to all of us at some point. If you find yourself in this spot then you can relax and know that you can get out of that rut.
The first step is to notice what others are wearing. Pick up a couple women’s magazines. Most of them have at least a couple of articles on fashion. It will give you a sense of what is popular and you can see what appeals to you. Movies are a great source of inspiration for fashion. If the stars are wearing it then you can bet it is fashionable.
After you have worn the same thing for year after year it can feel a little scary when you decide to try something new, but you can do it. Start small, maybe with purchasing an accessory that is different for you and sticks with the fashion trends.
Another tip to help you be more daring with fashion is to take a fun friend alone with you when you go shopping. It is always good to have a friend to bounce ideas off of and get their opinion. Often our friends can be encouraging and help us to see things in a different way or make suggestions with fashion that we never would have thought of on our own.
Even if a fashion choice feels a little out of character for you, don’t give up on it immediately. If it is different from what you would normally wear, give it a chance. Wear it and see if you get any compliments. Oftentimes, you will. People notice different and often comment that they like it. This can bolster your confidence to branch out even more with fashion.
