Are you feeling a bit uninspired when it comes to your personal style and fashion sense? Remember, not everyone develops their personal style overnight, and it’s a journey that you have the power to navigate. For many, the look they have is something they have carefully cultivated over time to find what works for them and what they feel confident in. This journey is about you, your choices, and your empowerment.

Feeling like you need to mix things up a bit can be an exciting opportunity to explore new fashion choices. How exactly do you find something different to wear, should you change things up and where do you start? The thrill of the unknown can be a great motivator in this journey. Embrace the excitement of discovering new styles and looks that resonate with you.

These tips can boost your style and help you find something that really represents who you are.

Identify What You Don’t Like

Firstly, knowing what you like and don’t like about clothing and style can be a great place to start. Looking at the things you like can be a lengthy process, so eliminating what you don’t like can help you remove some options before you start experimenting.

Take some time to browse through fashion magazines, peruse fashion influencer accounts or check out what family and friends wear to get a more definite idea of what you don’t want to wear and you can take it from there.

Declutter

When it comes to finding your style, it’s important to focus on the clothes you own and find out what you like, what makes you feel good, and what you absolutely refuse to put on your body. Get rid of everything you no longer want or need and whittle down your current wardrobe to clothes that you enjoy wearing and fit you well; don’t hold on to items just in case they might fit you down the line.

Create A Mood Board

It can be helpful to throw some looks together on a mood board so you can get a visual representation of how things will look together, what styles you can try, and how to pair different items of clothing and accessories. Many online stores have the ability for you to put yourself into the picture virtually to see how things might look to you personally before making the plunge. This can be an excellent way of seeing how you feel wearing different things or what works well together.

Start With What You Own

While changing up your style might feel like you need a massive purge and buy everything brand new, this can be a really bad idea, especially if you don’t like the new items you buy. Instead, pick a few select pieces from your wardrobe that you like or want to start wearing more and then build things up from here. It might be a jacket, a pair of shoes, a different color pair of jeans, or a top you haven’t worn before because you don’t know how to style it. Then, you can play around with different options to see what works well with it without having to start from scratch.

Take It Slow

You don’t have to make a massive fashion or style changes overnight. Instead, the best transformations are the ones done slowly and gradually over time to help you experiment in smaller ways until you completely change your look and find your new style. Start by wearing a different coloured top maybe, or change your jewellery. From here, you can make bigger changes once you feel happy and comfortable with the smaller ones. Remember, this is a journey, not a race.

The last thing you want to do is knock your confidence. So don’t rush things. Take your time, work up more significant changes, and allow yourself the time to become comfortable with what you are doing so you don’t set yourself back.

Push Out Of Your Comfort Zone

You cannot grow inside your comfort zone; that’s why it’s called this. You are comfortable in this zone, and you know what happens there. However, even slightly pushing yourself out of these boundaries can be hugely beneficial.

In a similar vein to doing something every day that scares you, don’t be afraid to do things you never normally would. Taking the lead from the above point, these boundary-pushing initiatives can be small to help you test the waters and not feel too overwhelmed or self-conscious. It doesn’t matter what it is; it’s just that it’s something you wouldn’t normally want to do but are too scared to.

It might be trying a new style of clothing that is a bit bolder than your usual choices. Or you might decide to add a tragus piercing to your ear to help you mix up your jewelry look and style; what you do is entirely up to you, but it needs to be something that works for you in a way that makes you feel good while still putting you out of your comfort zone. Remember, most changes are only temporary and can be reversed with little ot no issues (piercings, tattoos, haircuts, and colors might be more difficult to reverse, but nothing is permanent).

Take Pictures

hen changing your style and looking for a new look and vibe for yourself, remember to take pictures of everything you change when you change it so you can get a better idea of how you look, and then you can compare it to how you feel. The more visual reminders you have of the things you are trying, the easier it will be to look back and decide if you want to make these changes permanent or not. Especially if you’re trying many new things or you are not 100% convinced of some choices.

Changing up your style isn’t easy, but it can be an enjoyable process. From small changes, such as adding more color to your wardrobe choices or accessories to your outfits, to bigger ones, such as a new hairstyle or piercing, take it slow, experiment, and remember to have fun while doing so.
