Owning Your Style

Want to wear those style trends that are a little off the beaten path but lack the confidence to do so? I’ve never been the trendiest dresser around, I generally like to stick to what I know and what makes me feel comfortable. But I’ve picked up on something over the years that has changed the way I dress. I want to share what I’ve learned with you.

Wear What Makes You Comfortable but Occasionally Push the Envelope

This is something I’ve been trying to put into practice lately. Day to day usually opt for jeans, a T-shirt and converse to wear to class. But at least a couple days a week I’ve been trying to change that up and wear something entirely different, maybe that means a skirt, booties and a tank top. It’s unreasonable to think that you are going to feel comfortable flipping your style on its head. I’m not going to wear wide leg pants and combat boots to class but some people can. If there’s an aesthetic you’re interested in try incorporating one aspect of that into your every day look.

Stop Judging Other People

The best way to change the way that you feel is to change the way you feel about others. That means not judging those who dress differently or are maybe a little out there. If you don’t want to be judged it’s important that you give others the same respect you’d like for yourself.

Trust Your Instincts and Go With Them!

Often times we look for others for inspiration, which is all well and good, until you try to emulate your look after one person’s look. I’d encourage you to step outside of Pinterest and find what -you- like. Along with that try to put other people’s opinions aside. I’ll give you an extreme example of how I’ve tried to do that. In middle school I overheard someone tell another girl that her black nail polish was stupid, and guess what, until a few years ago I wouldn’t wear black nail polish because I thought it was stupid. For no reason at all, I took the words of a middle schooler, that I barely knew, to heart. Don’t have your own black nail polish situation, if you really enjoy wearing something then wear it no matter what someone might say.

You Don’t Have to Commit to Just One Style

If you like one style that doesn’t mean you can never switch or play with others. For example, if you usually dress kind of edgy it doesn’t mean you can’t wear some boho dress. It’s as simple as this: wear what you like and what makes you feel good. You aren’t defined by what you wear, it’s not what makes you unique.
