2018 is here, and that means a year of exciting trends and styles for us to try out. Of course, this isn’t to say that you should blindly follow all trends that come about – after all, trends come and go, but true style lasts forever. If you want to make sure you’re happy with your style this year, use the following points:
Learn How To Mix Prints
Mixing prints is one of the most exciting ways to enjoy a bolder style. Mixing things up like this can be scary, so you may prefer to start small by incorporating patterned accessories, like scarves and shoes first. See here for some shoe inspiration that might just help you. When you feel a little more brave, you can start wearing patterned dresses and shirts with patterned coats – go all out mixing the patterns that you really love! Follow Instagram accounts where influencers nail this trend to get a feel for how it’ done. Usually, you need to make sure the patterns are different sizes, and that you use them in different quantities.
However, the important thing to remember is that there are no rules!
Mix Your Materials For Texture
Mixing up materials in your outfits is crucial. This is because using various materials adds more texture, and the more texture an outfit has, the less boring it looks. If you wear an outfit that is just one material, there’s a very good chance it’s going to look boring – especially if you’re trying to rock an all black outfit. Get used to including different materials for the best results!
Let People Know What You’re All About
Don’t be afraid to use your clothing to let people know what you’re all about. Slogan t-shirts are becoming super popular, so choose one that you think represents you perfectly.
Add Some Statement Earrings
Statement earrings are probably the most popular accessory at the moment. You should be used to accessorizing with many other pieces – after all, an outfit can look so boring without the right accessories. However, statement earrings can change the game, especially if you’ve styled your hair in a ponytail or a bun.
Don’t Be Afraid To Make Some Mistakes
The key to creating a bolder style for yourself is to make a few mistakes. You’ll never learn what works for you and what doesn’t if you don’t just try things out. You might be surprised to realize you love styles you were frightened to try. At the very least, you’ll learn some important lessons about what you like to wear.
Dress For Yourself
Above all else, when putting together a new outfit or even a whole new wardrobe, you need to make sure you’re dressing for yourself. Don’t worry about what’s in fashion, what everybody is wearing, or what you think you should wear. Wear what you really want to wear and let your personality shine through. Express yourself!
Hopefully, these tips encourage you to try to be a little bolder with your choices and really enjoy styling yourself this year!
