It’s not easy to come up with an outfit that hasn’t been seen. Even with that amount of combinations, that’s practically infinite, it’s not uncommon to see people wearing practically the same thing you are, just in a different shade perhaps. So, if you want to stand out and be recognized for your style, you need to put in some extra effort. If you don’t know where to start, check out the next five suggestions!
Don’t Be Afraid to Experiment
You know how it sometimes happens that you take a look at a garment, and you don’t really like it while it’s on a hanger, but it turns out you absolutely adore it once you try it on? Well, you should apply the same principle when it comes to colliding different styles. No one will see you putting on different stuff while you’re home, so you have nothing to lose, really.
Find That One Thing Items from Different Styles Have in Common
It’s important to experiment, but you shouldn’t put on the first couple of things that you see. Pick out two garments that belong to completely different style, but try to find something they have in common – an ornament, print, material they are made out of, color or any detail really. If you achieve that, you can pull of practically anything.
Shoes Actually Define Your Outfit
Heels, dress shoes, flats or sneakers – your choice of shoes will define your style. You can go anywhere from casual to classy just by switching your current pair of shoes, so think carefully. A maxi dress with flats will look casual, but if you put on some makeup and heels, it will look completely different. It’s the same with men – a button down shirt with jeans looks differently when combined with dress shoes instead of sneakers.
If You Think It Looks Good, Don’t Ask for a Second Opinion
You’re an adult and it’s not like you, don’t pick out and purchase clothes you’re wearing, so you definitely have some type of fashion background. So, when you put on something you wouldn’t usually, and you like what you see, don’t take it off just because someone looked at you the wrong way or commented something you don’t like. You like it, and that should be enough.
Mirror Is Your New Best Friend
However, you need to be sure you like it so you can have enough confidence to wear that outfit with some attitude. When it comes to experimenting with outfits, check out each and every aspect of it in the mirror, and if that turns out to be satisfying, you have nothing to worry about.
One last piece of advice – don’t forget about comfort. Sure, you need to look good, but bear in mind that you need to be able to do your daily activities with no problems whatsoever, which isn’t really possible if you’re wearing something too tight, or if your shoes give you troubles. I hope you’ll find my suggestion helpful. Have fun!
