Having your own personal style is the best way to express yourself through your clothing. The clothes we choose to wear can say a lot about our personality and lifestyles. However, many people don’t realise that personal style is so much more than what you wear: it’s the attention you pay to detail too. Paying attention to the smaller details of your outfit will instantly make a bigger overall difference. Here’s how you can do it:
Wear Fun Socks
Wearing fun socks will instantly jazz up your outfit. You won’t always be able to see them, but when people do catch a glimpse of them, it’ll make all the difference! You can wear colored socks that contrast with the rest of your outfit, or dare to wear a pattern. You can even wear fashion socks, like knee high socks or socks with frills. Use your imagination! Socks and sandals are becoming a big thing – would you rock this trend?
Paint and Shape Your Nails
Your nails are a bit of an accessory in themselves, so make sure you paint and shape your nails. This kind of attention to detail always gets noticed. How would you like to enhance your outfit with your nails? You could create a polished, chic vibe by filing them short and painting them a neutral color. You could create a jazzy vibe by filing them oval and painting them neon green! You can really have fun with your nails so make sure they stand out.
Layer Your Jewelry
Layering jewelry can add tons of interest to your outfit, you just need to experiment a little first to get the hang of it. You can wear tons of bangles of different shapes and sizes. Different length necklaces, and a ton of chunky rings. Stacking rings are great for layering too! Under accessorising is a crime that most of us commit without even realising it. Saying that, you don’t want to wear too many accessories at once. Wearing too many at once can look garish if you’re not careful.
Make a Statement
Make a statement with your accessories to really perk up your outfit and make people take notice. You can buy patterned belts, bags, and shoes that will get heads turning. Don’t be scared to experiment!
You’ll read this just about everywhere, but I just had to include it. Include textures in your outfit to avoid looking too ‘samey’ and dull. Different textures make your outfit look more interesting. Leather Shinola wallets age over time, which can make them look more textured and interesting. Buy similar accessories to get the same effect.
Roll Up Your Sleeves
Have you thought about how you’ll wear your sleeves? They might look better rolled up half way. You don’t just need to think about your sleeves either; you have your trouser legs to think of, and your collar! There are a ton of ways like this you can make your outfit look different.
