It’s always tempting to change your look, but sometimes actually doing it is more difficult than you think it might be! There is a lot to think about and sometimes we don’t realize quite how much our style and fashion choices are quite automatic. So here are 5 easy steps to work through in finding that new look.
Think About Who You’d Like to Be
Are you presenting the look you want to? If not, why not? Maybe it’s an issue if confidence? You know the style that you’d ideally like to go with but are unsure if you can pull it off. If this is the case then try to figure out why you feel this way, maybe there’s a way to try out aspects of this style, such as attempting some protection experiments with colors, or even some new accessories?
What do You Like About Your Current Look
We’ve looked at what you’d like to change your look to, and how you can try out some subtle changes. So it’s always important to think about what you like about your current look? This way you can see if you have aspects of it that don’t need changed and narrow down what doesn’t. You don’t need to be a special occasion like a wedding to think of these things.
Something for Every Season
What you wear will no doubt change season by season. You’re not going to wear a full overcoat in July or swim shorts in January unless you’re a bit off the wall! So for winter check out men’s scarves that are perfect for the winter season, and for summer something completely different. There are parts of your wardrobe that are core and don’t change with the seasons, such as tops, etc, so maybe concentrate on having the seasonal stuff change around the other aspects of your look?
Don’t Forget Accessories
But whatever the season it’s essential not to neglect what accessories are going to add that final touch to whatever you are wearing. Sometimes a reinvention of your style can be a little more subtle than whole new outfits, and let’s be honest a range of new accessories are much more friendly to your bank balance. So hats, scarves, even jewelry, and watches can add something. Think about what type of shoes go well with other aspects of your wardrobe, even nice bright shoes or trainers can add a splash of color to an otherwise mundane outfit.
Know-How Long You’ll Keep It
Longevity is something that’s often overlooked when talking of fashion. Changing looks as we’re talking about here in the extreme is often talked about as throwaway or disposable fashion. With environmental concerns being important for all of us to be aware of and doing our part is a responsibility we should all take seriously gives food for thought. With this in mind, we should consider vintage or second-hand options, these can not only be really cool, and a money saver, it also cuts down on environmentally harmful wastage in production.
