We’ve all looked through our closet and thought, “is any of this really me?” How many of your clothes or accessories really speak to you as something that is uniquely you? There are probably a lot of pieces that you only bought because they were fashionable at the time, or you bought them out of necessity. While there’s nothing wrong with this approach, it does leave something to be desired. If you want to learn a few more ways to make your wardrobe more unique, keep reading below.
Buy From Unique Retailers
It’s easy to fall into the routine of going to the same stores to get the same kind of clothes. You don’t need to shop this way. There are plenty of smaller boutiques that offer things you wouldn’t normally find in a big clothing outlet. If you’re not near any of these, you can always raid your local thrift store for finds that could be much cheaper and even vintage.
Tailor It To You
By this, we mean taking your clothes to an actual tailor. If you have clothing that is a little too generic or widespread, your tailor can add or take off certain elements to modify it. Whether it’s completely removing sleeves, adding a hem, or even just replacing buttons, you’ll find there are a ton of options if you just ask.
Find and Stick To a Color Palette
If fashion is your thing, you probably already know about which “season” you are in terms of color. Springs are warm and bright colors, while winters stick to darker, cooler tones. This is a great place to start when it comes to finding your color palette. Sticking to this palette will help those colors become a signature part of your style, and you can always surprise people with a contrasting color whenever you want to.
Don’t Forget To Accessorize
Even if you don’t want to change up your actual clothing too much, there are still ways to bring out your uniqueness—this is where accessories come in. From purses and handbags to sunglasses and watches, accessories are the perfect opportunity to show your personality without being extremely overt. Try to pick one or two accessories that you love and stick to them—this will make people think of you whenever they see those accessories.
Now that you have a few ways to make your wardrobe more unique, you can head out into the world in your new clothes and accessories with confidence. The old adage is true: “Look good, feel good.” So, do yourself a favor and get yourself looking beautiful.
