If you’re like most women, you’re so busy taking care of everyone else that you’ve forgotten about yourself. Often the first thing to go is your sense of style, and you may find that your everyday look is in serious need of rehabilitation. Everyone gets into a style rut from time to time, but sometimes it isn’t easy to figure out how to get out of it. You could have a closet-clearing total makeover, or you can try these five tricks to update your look.
Change Your Underwear
People don’t often think about their underwear for more than a few seconds a couple of times a day, but what you wear under your clothes is almost as important as the clothes themselves. Finding the right fabric and fit for undergarments is important, especially when it comes to bras. Women come in all shapes and sizes but finding larger or smaller bra sizes that fit properly can be challenging. Take the time to research and find the best bra for you. You’ll be shocked at how better foundation garments can make clothes you already own as flattering as a new outfit.
Learn a New Hairstyle
You probably tried all different kinds of hairstyles when you were a girl, but you feel like you don’t have the time for that now that you’re all grown up. The good news is that it doesn’t take a night at a slumber party to learn a new hairstyle. Today, it’s as easy as finding a beauty blogger or video tutorial to learn a quick and easy new style that rights for you.
Try a Bold Hair Color
Not everyone can pull off the vibrant candy-colored hair that’s popular these days, but you can certainly play with more natural hair colors. Try lighter or darker colors of the same shade if you’re a brunette or go blonde if you’re more daring. Other hair colors can also benefit from highlights and lowlights mixed into any natural shade to transform your everyday look from flat to fabulous instantly.
Get a New Uniform
Apple founder and tech icon Steve Jobs famously wore a black turtleneck and jeans every day. You may not be as rigid as that, but chances are you’re wearing the same pieces or styles day in and day out. Ditch your old uniform and try something new. Rotate in some skirts if you’re used to wearing pants and try a structured jacket and slacks if you’re used to athletic wear. You probably already have some of these things lurking in the back of your closet, so let them see the light of day and give your other tired uniform the rest it needs.
There are so many reasons to get healthy this season, not the least of which is that it will make you look great. Switch from sugary drinks to plain water and get lots of rest when you can. It’s amazing how these simple changes can make you appear younger and more vibrant. Also, get exercise outside when you can to get that blood pumping and a little sunshine on your face.
Finding ways to update your style is not just about how you look but also about how it will make you feel. Try these tricks for a new look today.
