Are you bored with your look? Perhaps you’re in a bit of a rut with your style, or maybe you just want to give yourself a confidence boost for summer, after leaving a relationship or after having a baby. There’s plenty you can do to make the most of your appearance and have fun in the process, here are some of the ways you can go about it!
SWITCH UP YOUR EYEWEAR
Are you normally a glasses wearer? If so, why not consider switching to contact lenses for something different? If you normally wear contacts, switching to prescription lenses glasses could be an option- you might find you look sophisticated or extra smart with your new accessory. You could even try some non-prescription glasses purely for fashion purposes if you don’t need your vision correcting at all. Either way, changing things up in terms of your eyewear is one easy way you can make a significant difference in the way you look.
PLAY WITH MAKEUP
Makeup is a fantastic tool. It gives you the opportunity to either completely change your appearance, or be completely subtle depending on the look you’re going for. Best of all, if you don’t like it you can just wash it off- no harm done. Pull out your makeup bag and follow along to some tutorials on Youtube, try techniques like contouring and highlighting, smokey eyes and different, fun lip colors.
HAVE FUN WITH YOUR HAIR
You could cut your hair or add extensions, you could try curly styles or straight ones, you could play around with wearing it up or down or even add color (there are lots of semi-permanent or washable hair color products if you don’t want to make a commitment). Your hair is one of the first things people notice about you, so changing it up and trying something new is an effective way to transform your whole appearance.
TRY A NEW STYLE OF CLOTHING
Many of us fall into a fashion rut as we get older, we find items of clothing that are comfortable and somewhat flattering, then proceed to only ever wear these kinds of items from then on. Why not switch it up? If you’re always in jeans and t-shirts, why not try a dress or a skirt? If you have quite a girly style normally, why not go for something a bit more edgy like a leather jacket and lace-up boots. Perhaps you could do a clothing swap with friends and have fun dressing up, you might be surprised and find something you love that you’d never thought to try.
Adding a few bold accessories to an outfit really can make all the difference. A brightly colored handbag, some quirky shoes, a chunky piece of jewelry or a patterned scarf. If you don’t have the confidence to completely switch up your clothing style then consider accessorizing instead as a fun way to change things up!
However you decide to change up your appearance, remember this is about you and no-one else. Have fun with it and make the best of it.
