Are you so crazy about fashion that you are willing to follow every trend there is? Considering that fashion trends keep on changing every season, this will work out to be very expensive for you. The worst thing is that you will not necessarily look fashionable if you follow every trend. All that will happen is that you will look like a fashion victim.
It is actually very simple to have a lot of fashion confidence without having to follow every trend. What you need to always remember is that you should always wear the clothes and not let them wear you. Just because something is fashionable right now does not mean that you have to wear it. What you should do is get inspiration from trends instead of following them blindly. For instance, if certain colours are in style this season you should feel compelled to change your entire wardrobe in order to look fashionable.
You should also pick and choose from amongst all the trends available to you. There are bound to be many different things that are ‘in’ every season. However, you’ll need to choose which ones to follow. It is tempting to have the latest bag, shoes, clothes etc. but they will not look good all together.
If your wardrobe has a few classic staples such as a stylish skirt, a well cut pair of pants and jeans, a black dress and a well-fitting jacket then you can get accessories in the latest colours in order to remain stylish without looking like you are trying too hard. It is very important for you to figure out what kind of clothes suit your look the best. Get help from a fashion-forward person if necessary. If the clothes suit you then you will be comfortable instead of just looking fashionable.
It is not a good idea for you to wear clothes that are completely at odds with your personality. If you are a naturally quiet person then you should not try to look flamboyant. You’ll be a lot more stylish if you go for an elegant and understated look. However, this does not mean that you have to be stuck to the same look for ever. You can vary the look by enhancing your style a bit. Learn how to use accessories in the correct manner so that you can take your distinctive look up a few degrees.
It is also important to have a great sense of confidence no matter what you wear. If you are not confident then you will not be able to carry the clothes off, no matter how expensive they are. The problem with fashion victims is that they tend to lack confidence, using the clothes and accessories as crutches. If this is your problem then you will never be satisfied even if you have the latest clothes and accessories. Work on developing your own style and being true to it. You will feel a lot more comfortable in your skin and your clothes.
