Your personal style is exactly that — personal. It’s a representation of who you are as an individual and invites a number of opportunities for playfulness and experimentation. Fashion is like a blank canvas, and each person can use the colors and brushstrokes that they feel best represents who they are and the aesthetic they want to present.
There are several unique ways to add elements of vibrancy and personality to your current style, and you can be as subtle or as explicit as you want. Being bold is about presenting the best version of yourself unapologetically.
Looking to be a little bolder when it comes to your personal style? We have some suggestions.
Choose One Eye-Catching Piece of Clothing
If mixing and matching isn’t your cup of tea, you can make the statement you desire with a single statement piece. The beauty of a single piece of clothing is you have the power to decide where you’re going to add that exciting element.
If you’re comfortable in dresses or skirts, step out of the box and play around with color and texture — perhaps a jewel-toned velvet shift dress or a geometric-print skirt with a band tee tucked in. It’s all about finding ways to incorporate pieces you’re comfortable in with something new.
Find the Fun in Accessorizing
Accessories are the perfect way to add more personality to a neutral wardrobe without spending a lot of money or changing your entire wardrobe. Accessories are available in a variety of colors, styles, and sizes. A brightly colored necklace can light up your palette. A pair of patterned tights can add an element of fun to your outfit. A metallic purse can add just the right amount of wow to a simple staple wardrobe. You don’t have to completely change your aesthetic to have more fun with fashion.
Plan Dress Up Days
If you’re looking for ways to dip your toes in without completely revamping your closet, try setting dress-up days. This gives you the freedom to play around with colors, patterns, and textures on your own terms. Maybe Sunday is the day you venture out in your neighborhood in that cute Azzyland apparel you’ve been eyeing or breaking in those eye-catching shoes to add a pop of color to your neutral outfit.
As you become more comfortable with these changes, you can begin to integrate these changes more seamlessly into your daily routine.
Wear with Confidence
No matter how you decide to add those bolder elements into your wardrobe, the most important thing to remember is the power of confidence. Confidently stepping out in something you feel good in can speak more volumes than the clothing itself.
So whether you’re diving into the deep end and adding lots of color and prints, or you prefer subtle jewellery or a pair of shoes, so long as you’re wearing them with pride and confidence, you’ve already accomplished what you set out to do — to embrace being bold.
