When a new year rolls around, most people think deeply about the year they’ve just had and come up with some objectives that’ll ensure their following year is a success. They think about their relationships, careers, and health. However, who says that you need to think about such weighty topics? Not us! We think it’s just fine to focus on improving your appearance and coming up with a style that turns heads. After all, after the couple of years that we’ve all had, what could be better than just making ourselves look and feel awesome?
In this blog, we’ll run through some of the best tips for achieving just that.
It’s not just the colors and style of your clothes that count. It’s the quality of the clothing. You could have two people dress in the same way yet have one look much better. Why? Because they invested in high-end clothing. If you’re looking to upgrade your wardrobe, take a look at buying your threads from a specialist shop. They have much better clothing than big chain stores, and they don’t actually cost that much more money. But in any case, spending 20% more than you usually would is usually worth it, because of the quality of the item.
It’s not just your clothes that you can use to your advantage, either. What about accessories? These bright and fun objects can really help you to take your style to the next level. But of course, that’ll only happen if the accessories are good. As with clothing, it’s all about which store you buy the item from. You’ll get much better jewelry from a jeweler than you would from a department store. For other items, such as scarfs and gloves, it can be worthwhile looking at vintage markets — they’re usually a cut above the fast fashion offerings.
Evoking an Image
There are plenty of ways to just look presentable and broadly attractive with your clothing. But if you really want to stand out from the crowd, then it’s a good idea to think about evoking an image. What do you want to present to the world, for instance? It doesn’t matter what it is, really, just that you use the image to inform your style choices. Also, don’t be afraid to play around and be a little bold. Life’s too short to always stay in the middle lane. Go big with your style, and people will always pay attention.
Finally, be sure to play around with your entire image, not just your clothes and accessories. One of the best ways to improve your appearance is to hit the gym. This won’t necessarily make you look better on its own. But what it does is give you a subtle advantage; it’s a way to make yourself look mildly better because it improves your posture, skin, and helps to keep you toned. Plus, it gives confidence. And there’s nothing that makes people stand out more than confidence!
