The 6-Step Guide to Choosing a New Look!
When it comes to personal and professional image, it’s easy to feel pressure to appear perfect. The latest trends, latest fashions, latest makeup and hairstyles are constantly being hyped as the “new you” – the only way to look your best. But what does this pressure to be “the new you” really mean? For starters, it means that we’re constantly looking for new ways to update our appearance and feel more confident. That being said, it also means that there’s a lot of pressure to look perfect. But, it’s not something you have to struggle with. You don’t need to go through a stressful and expensive process to look your best. What you need is a little bit of self-awareness and a good sense of style.
Step 1: Decide what you want
The first step to choosing a new look is deciding what you want. If you want to make a change, it’s going to be hard if you don’t know what you want. Ask yourself, “What do I like and what do I hate?” Take note of your likes and dislikes when it comes to your personal appearance. Once you can answer those questions, the next step will be much easier.
Step 2: Define your personal style
Once you’ve identified the type of fashion you prefer, it’s time to start defining your personal style. This can be a difficult task, but it’s well worth the effort. Your personal style is what will guide your decision making when it comes to fashion and makeup. What do you consider your best features? What colors work best for you? What are some outfits that you feel most confident in? Asking yourself these questions will help you stay true to yourself and develop your own personal style. It also means that when someone compliments your outfit or hair – it’s genuine because they’re complimenting what YOU like about your own appearance. You don’t need to wear something just because everyone else does as long as it makes you feel good about yourself.
Step 3: Find your colours
What are your favourite colours? What colours make you feel the most confident or excited? Once you have a clear idea of your favourite colours, it’s time to find out what colours work best with your skin tone. If you want to look your best, it’s important to know what colours suit you. When choosing new clothes, it’s important that the colour complements your skin tone. If the colour is too light or dark for your skin tone, it could wash you out or make you look sickly. This is where websites like Colour Matching Tool can come in handy. By inputting a few details about yourself, you will get a list of recommended colours for clothing based on your skin tone and eye colour.
Step 4: Dress for you
When you dress for you, it’s important to consider your body shape and the length of your hips. If you have a narrow or slimmer frame, try to wear clothes that are fitted in certain areas, like around the waist or through the hips. This will help balance out your figure. If you want to wear more dramatic skirts or dresses with a full skirt, consider adding a belt or cinching some fabric in at the side to help balance out your hips.
Step 5: Find your perfect outfit
This is the fun part! You have your desired style, shape, and silhouette in mind. Now it’s time to make sure you have the perfect outfit to go with it. To start, take a look at all of the clothes you own and pick out what outfits would work well with your new look. You can use your Pinterest boards to spark some ideas if you want. Then, put together a few different outfits that will work for your lifestyle. This could be an outfit that works for work, an outfit that works for date night, or just an everyday look. Once you’ve picked out three or four outfits that work well together with your new look and lifestyle, find the one that best suits you and wear it!
