When you’ve got a busy family life and a to-do list that just keeps growing, fashion is probably not your main concern. That’s why so many parents fall into a bit of a fashion rut and end up wearing the same outfits over and over. What you wear might not be the most important thing in the world but if you look good, you feel good, so having a tired wardrobe can get you down a bit. It would be great if you could chuck everything out and go shopping for a completely new wardrobe but who has the time or money to do that?
The good news is, you don’t need to buy a whole new wardrobe when you’re getting a bit bored with your current style because there are easier ways to do it. Just a few simple changes can breathe new life into your wardrobe and give you a fresh new look, without having to spend a lot of time or money shopping for loads of new things. These are some of the easiest ways to completely change your look.
A New Haircut
Most people tend to pick a hairstyle that suits them and stick to it. Once you get comfortable with a stylist and they know exactly how you like it, it’s just easier to have the same cut every single time. But if you’re trying to reinvent your style a bit, a new haircut is often the easiest way to do it because it’s one of your most noticeable features. If you’ve always had a fairly safe hairstyle, you could consider going for something a bit more out there to really make a statement.
The best way to approach it is to take the advice of your stylist. Just let them know that you’re looking for a change and you want something that is completely different to what you have now, and ask for their suggestions. If you don’t like it, you can always go back to your original style but often, people find that they love the new style and they want to stick with it.
Changing the colour is another simple way to revamp your look and you can just do it at home on your own if you don’t want to spend a lot of money on professional colouring. Just make sure that you use a good quality colour and don’t dye it too often, otherwise, you could damage your hair.
Piercings are another drastic change that can change your look and give you a bit more edge. If you feel like you’re falling out of touch with fashion trends and you want to give yourself a younger look, getting a new piercing is a great way to go. You don’t have to go overboard and start covering yourself in piercings, but you could look at nose studs or some more piercings in your ear or even a belly button piercing. It’s only a small change but it can make a big difference. If you’ve got more piercings, it gives you more freedom to accessorise and wear statement pieces like dangly earrings, for example.
Makeup is a great way to change your look but if you’ve got the same stuff that you always had, you can’t really do anything new and exciting with it. It’s important that you find brands that work for you and use foundation that matches your skin tone correctly etc. but this sometimes leads to people always using the same makeup. If you’re trying to go for a new look, you should branch out a bit and look for something more interesting. Maybe try out some eye shadow colours that you wouldn’t normally use or get some different mascara. Even small changes and a little bit of extra colour can really make a big difference.
You should also look at different makeup techniques because a lot of people have their set routine in the morning and they don’t really deviate from it because they don’t know what else to do. But you can find so many great tutorial videos online that will show you new makeup techniques that you can use. You don’t need to spend loads of money on expensive makeup to get a new look, you just need to find new ways to use what you already have.
Add A New Colour
Everybody tends to have a group of staple colours that they always stick to. If you’re just wearing black and navy all of the time, your wardrobe can easily become boring. That doesn’t mean that you should never use those colours, but you should also try to change things up a bit by adding a new colour. If you go out and buy 2 or 3 new pieces of clothing or a stylish handbag in a colour that you would never normally wear, it kick starts your inspiration a bit. Once you start matching them with your outfits and experimenting, you’ll find that you can create a way more interesting look, just by adding a few extra items to your wardrobe.
Stop Playing It Safe
If you don’t want to buy anything new at all but you’re bored with your current style, you need to stop playing it safe. There will be certain things that you know go well together and you’ll always wear those set outfits. But if you start being a bit more adventurous and daring, you’ll be able to create a far more interesting look. Match things that you wouldn’t normally wear together and see what it looks like. Sometimes, it’s not going to look great but sometimes, you’ll find a great new outfit which is way more stylish and exciting than what you normally wear. You’d be surprised how many different outfits you can make with what you already have just by experimenting a bit and learning how to accessorise properly.
Reinventing your look doesn’t mean having to buy a whole new wardrobe, you can just make some small changes and give yourself a fresh new style.
