If you’re feeling a little stuck in a rut wardrobe-wise, there are few things you can do to shake things up a bit. Add more of a personal touch to your look by picking out unique items that really suit you. It may also be time for a mindful decluttering. Get rid of the stuff you don’t wear anymore and make room for some more original pieces. You don’t have to break the bank to personalise your look either. The important thing is to show off your unique character and style. Here are a few tips to get you started.
Pick versatile items
The capsule wardrobe idea has really kicked off, with many people trying to minimise their collection and create matching outfits from fewer items. The key is to opt for versatile items that can be dressed up or down in different ways. You can then get creative and match different items for a more personal look. You could try pairing a summer dress with boots, for example, if you’re not a fan of sandals.
Have fun with accessories
If you want to make any outfit more exciting the key is to learn how to accessorise. You could check out second-hand or vintage accessories that will really make a statement and show off your personality. Try layering your accessories in a unique way as well. You could mix necklaces and bracelets of different weights and materials. Choose one statement piece, for instance, and layer it with a few lighter ones. Summer is also the best time of year to wear hats if they suit you or quirky sunglasses.
Check out the charity shops
Have a browse in the charity shops near you and get creative matching items. You’ll get a full new outfit for next to nothing and the best thing is no one else will be wearing the same. Second-hand or vintage are the best ways to go if you want something more original, rather than high street fashion.
Try something new this summer
If you’d always thought about dying your hair or getting a tattoo but hadn’t got round to it, why wait? Summer is the perfect time of year to show off your new look when you’re out in the sun. If you do get a tattoo, for example, you can make it personal. You can do pretty much anything with tattoo ink these days so you can even design your own. Choose something that has a special meaning for you.
Buy what you’re most comfortable in
In order to look and feel your best, you need to go for what you’re most comfortable in. Thanks to the success of lockdown loungewear, comfortable clothes are still in this season. When you’re shopping for your summer wardrobe, try on a few things and only buy the things you feel most yourself in. This way you’ll feel more confident and relaxed. You can then use fun accessories and different combinations to add a more personal touch to your look.
