Fashion trends change all the time. People tend to find fashions they love and stay with them for a long while. This can lead to your wardrobe becoming stale and even out of style. Black pants and tailored jackets are timeless, but the clothes are only as good as the shirts, shoes, or accessories they are paired with. When you’re stuck in a style rut and you don’t know what to do, here are some ideas to get your creativity rolling.
Ask someone else to shop for you
It can be frightening, but ask a friend who is fashion-conscious to help you pick out some new pieces. Keep your mind open and try the look. You’d be amazed at what can look great on you that you never would’ve considered trying on, let alone wearing in public. It can help you expand your wardrobe by adding in a few new fashionable pieces so that your looks aren’t trapped in a decade ago.
Rent your Clothes
Have you ever heard of clothes rental companies that will send you something by mail and you can keep it, or send it back? What a great way to try something new that you didn’t even need to think about picking out for yourself. Similar to having a friend shop for you, this time it’s a company that may or may not have personal shoppers to find something that will suit your needs.
Subscribe to a Subscription Box with Curated Style Accessories
A subscription box that features fashion-forward accessories can help you break out of a style rut. These boxes will provide you with the essentials to get through the season. You’ll also have new items to try. These boxes are a great way for you to pamper yourself and get away from the same boring styles that you’re drawn to.
Try something that you would never buy for yourself
When was the last time you went to the store, saw something you loved, but then thought, “nah, that’s not for me?” That’s your sign you need to buy it. Just because you haven’t worn that style before doesn’t mean you can’t wear it now. You’d be amazed at the new looks you can put together when you give yourself the freedom and permission you need to try something new. Whether it’s a color or a style that you find yourself longing to wear, it’s time to be adventurous and give it a try.
Minimalists are the best!
You may not think that going minimal can improve your fashion choices, but you’d be surprised what a good closet cleanout can do. Sometimes it can be difficult to choose a new style because you have too many clothes. There are so many options that you end up choosing between 5-10 outfits. You can get rid of the accessories and clothes you don’t wear often, and then add in the pieces you love. A minimalist wardrobe doesn’t have to be boring.
Find a new shop to shop at
This one will make your skin feel uncomfortable, but it’s a good thing. When you go to a different store, you’ll get exposed to different looks that you may want to try out and add to your closet. You don’t have to be limited to the items you see at your favorite store. To find the perfect outfit, you can experiment with new tops, skirts, and pants.
Add a pair of new shoes
You know the saying, “The shoes make the outfit.” Maybe that’s a stretch, but they do add a certain flair. You don’t have to change your entire style, but you can start small with a new pair.
Get a new hairstyle
When was the last time your hairstyle was changed? This is a great way to update your look. There are many options for updating your hairstyle. A new haircut will show the world that you are fashion-forward, confident, and fashionable.
