Now that summer is almost here it’s time to ditch that winter wardrobe – but the change-of-seasons wardrobe swap isn’t always fun. Having trouble finding something from last season’s wardrobe that you feel confident in? Or perhaps everything you own is out of style but you don’t want to spend the cash to update your wardrobe? You are not alone. Updating your wardrobe can be costly, and we can all use a little confidence boost in the fashion department every now and then.
Here are 5 tips to help you feel confident in what you wear without breaking the bank!
Match accessories with hair color
Many people may not know this, but one of the top tricks in fashion to make you look your best is to buy accessories such as shoes and belts that match your hair color. It sounds crazy, right? This simple trick helps you look put together while remaining stylish, and will also help save money since you can wear them repeatedly with each changing outfit. If you’re someone who likes a little more pop of color in your life, it’s okay (and even fun!) to buy bright colored shoes like red or yellow. Just make sure the colors you choose match most your wardrobe so that you get the most bang for your buck.
Buy solid separates
Purchase separates in solid colors that allow you to mix and match. This saves you money by not having to buy separate pieces to match that patterned shirt or skirt. Solids also give off a timeless and classy look which never go out of style. To look your best in the solids you choose (who doesn’t want to look their best?), make sure at least one of the solid color shirts you buy matches your hair color. This may sound crazy, but it works! Matching the shirt color with your hair helps to bring out your natural skin tone and give you that healthy glow we all want! For example: Honey colored garments look great on blondes, brown garments if you’re brunette, and so on.
Embrace your best assets
Instead of wasting all your energy trying to hide what you don’t like, focus on showing off what you DO like. If you hate your arms but love your legs, buy skirts to flaunt those legs. Or maybe you hate your legs but love your arms? Wear pants or capris but focus on buying tank tops or short sleeve shirts to bring focus to those toned biceps. Regardless of what part of your body you choose to mask and which to flaunt, dressing for your body type is certain to help you feel more confident when you step out the door.
Let your personal style show
If you don’t like the style of clothing you are wearing, there is no way you will feel confident wearing it. Figuring out your personal style and mixing that into what you wear will help you stay connected to your true personality, thus making you feel more confident when you wear it. Because your outfit is likely the first thing others will notice about you when you meet them, developing a go-to signature look will help you stand out. Take risks from time to time with your style to find what works and what doesn’t. Even those in the limelight, from famous actress Jennifer Aniston to well-known athlete Serena Williams, must feel confident in the styles they choose to wear. No matter who you are or what you do for a living, you must be confident in what you wear because when you look your best, you feel your best!
Looking great doesn’t have to cost a fortune. If you’re ever in a fashion rut and not sure of the latest trends, a quick search on the internet can yield you plenty of helpful results. The level of confidence you project is directly related to what you wear. Again -when you look good, you feel good! So now that you’ve read these tips, hopefully you’re ready to go out and slay your day with confidence in what you wear. All without spending a fortune!
