While we all might share some common interests or even characteristics, we are all still very different.
Each person is unique and special in their own way. And with such individuality, it’s truly important that when we get to know someone, that we take the time to get to know them, all before assumptions and conclusions are made.
But what happens if we’re not a person of many words? How does someone get to know you?
This is where fashion becomes the Mecca of self-expression.
Even if you have the ability to talk someone’s ear off, you can and should use fashion as a form of self-expression. Allow fashion to demonstrate your personality, emotions, and attitude to everyone around you.
They say that eyes are the mirror of a person’s soul. Well, if that’s the case, fashion can be a mirror of their character.
If you’re wondering how can that be, then you came to the right place. Because right now, we’re talking about how you can use fashion to express yourself, all in just a few easy steps. Here’s how:
Step 1: Go bold with your hairstyle
Your hairstyle can say a lot about you as a person.
For example, if you choose to opt for a plain, unnoticeable haircut, you could be perceived as someone who may not care about their appearance or maybe even the conservative type.
Is that what you want your haircut to say about you? Btw, it’s totally okay to say “yes” here, there’s no right or wrong answer.
But if that’s not the look you’re after, you need to decide on the statement you’re trying to make with your haircut.
“Do I want to blend in with the crowd? Am I okay with that? Or do I want to make more of a statement?”
If we had a say in your haircut, we would say your hair should be bold and demonstrate your uniqueness, allowing you to stand out in a crowd.
And with summer just around the corner, you can do that easily with our Pinterest worthy hairstyle guide.
Remember, your statement haircut does not have to be something invasive or aggressive like a mohawk.
You can still make a unique statement by simply cutting your hair shorter or even dying it in a different color. You can also add accessories to your hair, like a hair clip.
As long as your hair looks fresh, slightly unexpected, maintained, and reflects your personality, you’re all set.
Although, if it suits you, crazy haircuts are also welcomed, don’t think that they’re off limits.
Step #2: Wear some unique pieces of jewelry
This doesn’t mean that you must go out and buy a necklace that’s worth thousands of dollars.
Jewelry doesn’t have to be expensive to be unique and look good on you.
In fact, if you find yourself some antique earnings or broaches to wear, do it up!
Chances are, those pieces will reflect on your personality more than any other overpriced jewelry. And if you’re more into the rock’n’roll, modern, contemporary vibe, go for it! Whatever you do, just make sure it speaks to your personality.
All it pretty much comes down to is that you’re choosing pieces that reflect the best version of yourself.
Step #3: Upgrade your wardrobe
According to the experts at Hellosewing.com, you don’t have to replace your entire wardrobe and ditch your previous style of clothing to revamp your closet. Instead, enhance your wardrobe a bit to better reflect your personality.
To enhance your wardrobe, you can go two routes.
Option 1: Investment pieces
You can opt to put your money towards investment pieces, pieces that will live in your closet for a lifetime.
Investment pieces tend to be on the pricer side but become staple pieces in your wardrobe, such as a little black dress or even a luxury handbag.
Option 2: Fast fashion
Fast fashion pieces tend to be cheaper and serve best for the current popular trend. With that, fast fashion has become an increasingly popular trend in recent years making it easier for people to express their uniqueness.
Step #4: Pick your signature scent
People don’t have to see you, hear you, nor touch you for them to remember you well.
Your scent can be powerful enough to create a lasting impression. So if someone is going to remember you by your scent, give them something pleasant and worth remembering.
Also remember, there’s no need to overload on the scent. One or two spritzes will suffice.
With these core steps, even if you don’t have the words to express yourself, you can let your fashion do all the talking. But whatever statement you choose to make, make sure it’s true to you and something you’re proud of.
