It is so easy to get stuck in a style rut. You can get so used to what you wear and how you look that you forget that it is possible to be experimental and keep things interesting with your image. If you are interested in finding some simple ways to change your style, or you are bored with your current look, here are some tips on how to experiment with your image.
Glasses can be one of the best ways to mix your style up a bit. Eyewear is one of the most important accessories if you are a glasses wearer, as it is the first thing someone will see when they look at you. Why not show off with them and pick a modern, trendy frame style that will reflect your personality? International eyewear supply some gorgeous styles from amazing designer brands like Lulu Guinness that you might want to check out. Lulu Guinness glasses frames are exceptional quality frames with some quirky styles and colours to offer including cat-eye, tortoiseshell, pastel-coloured frames and the classic rectangle frame style.
Something as simple as painting your nails can completely change up your look. If you tend to wear monochrome coloured clothes or subtle patterns, a pop of colour can transform your image. If you wanted to push the boat out further, you could experiment with acrylics and stick on nails. There are a huge variety of pre-painted stick on nails that are ideal if you aren’t confident with painting your own, or if you want a complex pattern. Stick on nails are, more often than not, significantly cheaper than getting professional acrylics or gel nails, so they’re perfect if you are on a budget.
Experimenting with different hair colours can give someone the biggest confidence boost. If you are in lockdown, it may be the best time to try out a wacky semi-permanent hair colour before going back to work. You could try different styles too; you could do a full head, balayage, a strip of colour or you could do highlights. There are kits available to help you achieve these different styles too. Make sure you do a patch test before going ahead with the dye just in case you have an allergic reaction.
Instead of completely transforming your wardrobe, how about slowly incorporating some new pieces whilst giving other pieces away? Try applying the ‘one in, one out’ rule to your wardrobe to manage the flow and number of pieces you own. If there are pieces that you think you will want to eventually wear again, or if anything is sentimental, you can put the piece of clothing into storage. If you are thinking of getting rid of a piece of clothing, you can donate it to charity or even sell it online if it is still in good condition. Practicing this rule will mean you never get bored with the pieces you own because your wardrobe will be constantly changing over time.
