I’ll be the first to say it’s *very* easy to fall into the same old styling routine, but just when you thought “Oh, I won’t see the same people tomorrow, I can wear the same thing” actually turns out to be “Crap… I’m wearing the same outfit as yesterday and I just saw this person”… it may just be time to switch things up in your wardrobe.
It can be something as simple as letting go of your trusty sweater that’s become your ultimate security blanket or as detailed as changing up your entire weekly dressing routine. Either way, moving yourself past a style dead end is easier than you think.
With some tips & tricks on why you’re stuck in an outfit crater in the first place, I’m about to show you how to pivot into a fresh, new vibe that won’t have you feeling life you’ve completely transformed, but tweaked and turned into a newly stylish direction.
The Dead End: Jeans galore.
I’ve never been a jeans and tank top kind of girl; jeans are just not my go-to comfort piece. I totally understand why you may find yourself living in your favorite pair though – they’re comfortable, durable, and they go with practically everything in your closet. However, if you’re reaching for them constantly, it’s definitely time for a change… a slight one, that is!
The Turnaround: Diversify your jeans with color, patterns, and interesting styles.
I only have 2 pairs of “normal” jeans – one dark and one light. The rest are in different colors – royal blue, coral, yellow, and pink – patterns – polka-dot and stripe – and style – jegging, military/high-waist, and boyfriend. These variations offer the same sort of versatility and can be dressed up or dressed down, adding an oomph to your outfit that can be difficult to showcase with a simple pair of jeans.
Stay tuned for the continuation of this series where I’ll be discussing other style dead ends including living in sneakers & sweats, constantly wearing black, carrying the same handbag everyday, and more!
