When you get a little older, you stop wanting to fit in with everybody and you feel like you can finally be yourself. We’re all unique in our own way, and we can show this off by making sure we have a totally personalised style. This guide is the only one you need if this is something you want to master!
Read on to learn how you can have a personalised style and stand out from the crowd:
Customise Your Clothing
Take a look at your clothing and figure out if you have any pieces that you could make even better with a little customization. Maybe you have a t-shirt you haven’t worn in a while that you can use dyes with, or you have a jacket you can cut the sleeves off and apply patches to. Customizing your clothing can be a lot of fun, especially if you like getting arty. There are tutorials all over the place that can help you if you’ve never done this before, and you’ll be able to proudly say that you customised your outfit yourself.
Wear Custom Jewellery Pieces
Wearing custom jewellery pieces is another great way to spice up your look. If you’ve made jewellery in the past, go ahead and make your own! Use your imagination and make pieces that you absolutely love. Alternatively, hiring a company to do this for you is possible, although it’s going to be a little more pricey. You’ll want your custom jewelry to be quality and perfectly suited to you, so make sure you know things like your favourite metal and how to choose a diamond before you splash out any cash. Custom jewellery pieces will usually stay with you forever, and can be passed down through generations.
Only Ever Buy Clothing That You Really Love
People buy so much throwaway fashion these days, that they aren’t even buying clothing they really love. They’re buying clothing for the sake of it, because they feel down, they saw a z-list celebrity in it, and for plenty of other wrong reasons. You should only ever buy clothing that takes your breath away. Minimise the amount of throwaway fashion that you buy and you’ll be able to buy higher quality pieces that last a lifetime.
Stay Away From Fashion Trends
Whatever you do, don’t follow trends. If you have to follow a trend, it should be something that you really love. Trends come and go, but true style lasts forever!
Assess And Define Your Personal Style
When you assess and define your style, you’ll find it so much easier to buy great clothes that you’ll actually get your wear out of. What 3 words would you use to describe your style? What pieces have you loved in the past and why? Why haven’t you loved certain pieces in the past? When you know these things, you’ll easily be able to put together a wardrobe that you can mix, that lasts, and that you love.
