Happy New Year Y’all! I am so excited for the year ahead and am anxious for all the possibilities. Now let’s get to today’s post.
My latest Rocksbox was all about color (bright blue statement necklace, bracelet, and earrings). I normally keep my jewelry neutral but was open to the change. I opted for a cozy gray cardigan and white blouse. The bell sleeves are unique and I love the marled texture.
Experimenting with your style is so important. I know this idea seems simple but a lot of people tend to shy away from it. The good thing about experimenting is you can always change it.
Here are 3 Reasons Why You Should Experiment With Your Style
- Experimenting with your style is fun. It can be super energizing to try something new. Even if you don’t like the outcome, you will be more open to change. You might surprise yourself and end up liking some of your choices, enabling you to take more fashion risks. When I first tried wearing red lipstick I was super hesitant, but seeing other women wear it made me want to give it a try. At first, I was self-conscious. Now I’m obsessed with it and feel like wearing a bright bold lip makes me stand out from the crowd (in a good way). It also gives me a signature style that I didn’t have before, minus my bangs.
- It’s an inexpensive way to change things up and avoid boredom. When I’m bored with my style, I often feel like I have nothing to wear, which leads me down the rabbit hole of spending money on things I don’t need. You don’t have to invest much to try something new. You can change up your makeup, or try a new hair style. If you’re unsure about a look or trend, opt for the inexpensive version first. If you end up liking it, then splurge for the genuine article. Another great option is to shop your closet. You will find creative ways to wear a piece or two. It will also give you a clear look at items that you might have forgotten or no longer need.
- It gets the creative juices flowing. First with your style, then in other areas of your life. Whenever I try something new, I feel a sense of accomplishment. Getting started is the hardest step, but once you’ve taken that first step it’s smooth sailing.
