I don’t know about you, but I love having the opportunity every day to express myself and wear whatever the hell I want to, to fit my mood, show a different side of me for a different occasion etc… I’m a firm believer in look good feel good, and this is absolutely the case for me. My fashion sense changes on the daily. I wouldn’t particularly say I
It’s easy to stay simple, follow the crowd, drown yourself in all black but is that realllyyy what you’re feeling inside?!
For a lot of us it’s a confidence thing, the fear of standing out too much, knowing that others around you would never be seen dead in what you’re purchasing from the highstreet stores and you don’t necessarily wear what you want because your worried you’re going to be judged or laughed at? Or people around you don’t like it, so you don’t buy it?
STAY IN YO OWN LANE G.
You’re not alone, we’ve all been there so here are a couple of tips I’ve put together that will help you do just that!
Don’t be put off by other people’s opinions!
Firstly, opinions are exactly that. They are not fact. So for all we know, they could all be wrong! Not everyone is going to like what you wear. So what? It shouldn’t stop you from buying something or wearing something you want to? I have seen it so many times, people ask for other people’s opinions in a shop, and if they’re not all positive, they won’t buy it? Just because your best mate doesn’t like it, DOESN’T mean you don’t buy it. Be the person who stands out and stands for what you believe in. Not only will you leave with an outfit YOU love, but you’ll get that sense of leadership and ownership because you did dattt 😉 yasss.
Make things YOUR OWN.
I have cut so many jumpers and tops because they fit weird (I have a weird shaped body, clothes don’t like me off the hanger lol). I have one of those figures where crop-tops are too long to be cropped but too short to be normal length. Do you get what I mean? Is it just me who has that problem? Seriously so annoying lol! So, if you are that person who has brought something that’s not too expensive, you REALLY like it but it’s too long, too wide, the sleeves are funny but the colours are flyyyy, then get the scissors out, don’t be afraid to play around with your clothes and put some rips in them to make them YOURS.
Take a look in the men’s section…
Yep I’ve said it. Just because it’s mens, it doesn’t mean you can’t wear it. I have seen so many clothes in the mens section that I LOVE. The tracksuits, the jackets, the oversized tees… jheeeez. Men’s tracksuit pieces are so much nicer than women’s (in my opinion!), so don’t be afraid to go up the escalator (mens section is never on floor 1, why please?) and take that ‘mens’ label out of your mind. Personally their section is 1 million times nicer than the womens ever is!
Make ‘casual’ look amazing!
All it takes is makeup, accessories and a fire hair style which completely transforms an outfit! You could rock jeans and a top and still look amazing! You don’t have to spend tonnes on an outfit or have the most extra outfit on, just style your hair and makeup right, few extra bits and bobs, maybe a bit of furrr who knows… and you can make an outfit COMPLETELY DIFFERENT! It’s crazy what a little bit of imagination can do!
I’ll show you what I mean in this outfits below:
When I see people who wear what they want, and have an alternative fashion, I always think ‘YES TO YOU. SLAY THAT ISH. you don’t give a sht and I RESPECT that!’. It takes guts to be different. People need to stop being put off by others. Fck everyone else! Don’t listen to negative opinions. And to be honest, sometimes it’s best we just don’t ask fo them. You know if you like it or not, and that’s all that matters. Get the outfit you want, do you, have your own individual style and show the world who you are!
