Hello darlings! Today I’m sharing a look that’s a little outside my normal style, but I happen to think it’s fun to shake things up once in a while! Now, I don’t tend to wear a lot of black. I know black is a basic, and it’s supposed to be super slimming but it’s never been a colour I’ve given much space to in my wardrobe.
Since today I’m sharing an almost all black look that’s new to me, I thought I would also share my tips for finding your confidence when trying out new styles. Because let’s be honest, trying a new trend or changing your style can be a little bit intimidating. But keep scrolling because I have 2 important tips to get you shaking up your wardrobe with confidence in no time!
Having good style means knowing what works for you, but also not being afraid to try new things. However, trying out a new style can be mega intimidating! Here are my top two tips for easing into a new (or new to you!) trend.
1. Pair the new trend with other items you feel comfortable with.
Instead of wearing a head to toe new look, wear new items along with old favourites. While I don’t wear a lot of black, blush pink is a colour I know looks good on me. So for me, adding a little pink to an all-black look is a simple way to ease into wearing a new colour.
2. Start small.
If the new trend you want to try is say leopard print, don’t feel the need to start out by purchasing a designer leopard print dress that you may never find the confidence to wear. Instead work the new trend into your daily looks with smaller accessories. Perhaps consider adding a small leopard print clutch to your usual going out outfit. Once you feel comfortable adding a little bold print, then you can graduate to larger scale items like that leopard print blouse you’ve been eyeing.
3. Test the trend among strangers.
If you’re not to sure how your friends might react to your new style, try first wearing the new item out somewhere you won’t see anyone you know. While your friends might mean well, if you usually wear one style then suddenly try something new they might be surprised! And if you aren’t already 100% confident in your new style, questioning friends might do more harm than good. Wearing a new style among strangers first can help you gain confidence in your new style without worrying about the potential judgements of those close to you.
