Fashion isn’t really my forte…well let’s be honest, nothing is really my forte haha. But I feel like when it comes to fashion, many people are too scared to go out of their comfort zone. I know that I have certain outfits in my closet that I enjoy wearing and gravitate more towards them when getting ready for the day. I also have some super cute clothes that still have tags attached and I’m sure I’m not the only one either! Here are my tips on how to own your outfit and get out of your comfort zone.
All out of confidence and don’t feel like trying on clothes in public? Dia&Co works with you to find the best match according to your style profile. Everything is handpicked by their stylists and shipped directly to your door, so you can try on clothes in the comfort of your own home and ROCK it.
Mix colors, mix patterns, mix textures. Mix it all! I know that there are some fashion rules that some people stick by, like not wearing black and brown together buuuuuut I totally do that sometimes. I wore a super cute little black dress with some brown strappy heels and got so many compliments. So, break the rules. You want to wear cheetah and zebra print together? Go ahead. The world is your stage and you better work it, girl.
Have a friend pick something out for you.
When I’m shopping, I love to look around and spend my time going through the racks to make sure that I don’t miss anything but sometimes it can get super tedious. Bring a friend with you when you go shopping and have them pick out an outfit for you. They’ll probably pick out something that you wouldn’t normally wear, and who knows? You might love it. (P.S. My mom picked out my sister’s prom dress from the rack and she thought she was going to hate it…it ended up being the one she bought!)
Do you love looking at magazines or watching NYFW? Inspiration is all around us and use it to your best ability. NYFW outfits are normally over the top, but they’re admired by so many so grab inspiration from those and I’m sure you’ll rock it. You might even start a new fashion trend.
Now, those are my tips to get you out of your comfort zone! Are you curious about what I’m hesitant to wear? Let me let you in on a little secret.
I really dislike wearing dresses, which is a shame. They’re comfortable and can make you look well put together without much effort. Why do I hate them? I feel like they hug my body awkwardly and show every lump and bump that I hate. I also really dislike my legs for a couple different reasons – they’re super pale, bruise easily, and my knees look funny. But guess what? I went out of my comfort zone on a couple different occasions, and looking back, I actually love how I look in these two dresses.
I came to the conclusion that no one was looking at me in these dresses the way that I was looking at myself. We are always so critical and hard on ourselves when there really is no need to be. You are beautiful, no matter what anyone else thinks. You can rock whatever you want to wear, wherever you want to wear it. You don’t need other people’s approval to feel good in your own skin. But you can radiate that feeling of self-love to others by showing how confident you are in your skin and dominating the day in whatever outfit you choose.
You got this and I hope you enjoyed the post. What’s your fashion fear? Let me know!
Thanks so much for reading, as always <3
