It can be easy to put on the same clothes day after day, especially when you are busy and have fallen into a routine. However, is your style and look representative of how you feel at the moment? If it is not, then it is time to make changes. Here is a guide on how you can refresh your style in 2023.
Analyze Your Look At The Moment
What is your look and style saying at the moment, and what vibes is it giving off? Your look and style may have been unchanged for many years or maybe built around a couple of capsules you have in your closet. When you are analyzing your look, also take notice of how you style your hair and what accessories and footwear you wear, as these all have an impact on your overall appearance and style.
Don’t Change Everything At Once
You may want to give your closet and look a complete overhaul. However, before you do this, stop and instead focus on changing one area at a time. If you try to change everything at once, you may lose your personal style. You may lose sight of who you are and what you love to wear. Changing one element of your style at a time allows you to retain your sense of identity.
Take Note Of The Latest Trends
Some of the latest trends can impact your style and look, and a refresh may involve you embracing elements of new trends. Taking note of the latest trends and seeing where you can add your own flair or design will help you stay fashionable even as you change your look. You may find that a particular style becomes your new go-to look; or you may find that a trend from this season shapes a capsule in your closet.
Step Outside Your Comfort Zone
It is important that you step out of your comfort zone when you can. When you are in your comfort zone, you are often stuck in a style rut, which can hinder your vision and stifle your creativity.
Stepping outside your comfort zone may mean that you try a new color or shade that you shunned before, or it may mean embracing a new style of clothing that you have never worn before. For example, you may want to start wearing a corset with your favorite pair of jeans and not just a t-shirt or sweater. You may even find that styling a corset comes naturally to you, and as a result, you may not be as out of your comfort zone as you initially anticipated you would be.
Work With Your Shape
There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to body shape, and no two bodies are the same, and this is why you should love and appreciate the shape that you have. Some clothes and styles will flatter you, and other styles, such as the baggy trend, may wash you out and may make you feel frumpy. When you work with your shape, you can understand what enhances the assets that you have. If you are not working with your shape, you are working against it, and this may leave you feeling out of place in the clothes that line your closet.
