Trying out new styles can be a little overwhelming and intimidating, but sometimes it’s good to break out of your comfort zone! As you read in the most recent outfit post, I tested out the colorful stripes trend over the past weekend and you know what? I absolutely love it! On the other hand, sometimes stepping out of your comfort zone doesn’t result in a totally successful outfit. Regardless, summer is a great time to switch it up and break free from a style rut. Today, I’m sharing 3 quick tips for stepping up your style and getting out of your comfort zone!
3 Tips for Trying New Trends
- Work your way up!
Listen, trying out trends doesn’t have to be a huge wardrobe change. If you want to ease into a style shift, try stepping out the box with an accessory you wouldn’t typically wear. Of course, it’s always wise to try out a new trend by picking up something in a fast fashion store. If you aren’t ready to dive into a full colorful jumpsuit like I did, pick out a handbag in a completely different style from your normal taste. Test the waters until you feel comfortable enough to expand to clothing.
- Use your comfort zone to your advantage.
The easiest way to get out of your comfort zone is to actually keep one foot in and one foot out. What do I mean by that? Well, let’s say you love wearing maxi dresses. To step up your style, you don’t have to give up maxi dresses. Instead, look for one in a print or color that you wouldn’t normally wear.
- Bring new styles to your dressing room.
By far, this is the best tip I can share. Sometimes, you really never know what you like until you give it a try. Several trends look better on than they do on a hanger. The next time you’re out shopping, make it a point to try on items in a fitting room that aren’t your usual style. That’s actually how I ended up wearing skinny jeans so many years ago, and now they’re a closet staple!
