How To Be Bold With Your Style

In a previous blog post, we talked about ways to discover your personal style, you can read about it here! Today, we wanted to talk more about finding ways to be bold with your style. Once you begin finding your style and aesthetics, your choices become much more intuitive and organic. You find a rhythm and tune to your daily outfits, but to continue to let your style flourish and stretch in all directions, you need to occasionally take risks with your outfits!

Maybe it is something you wouldn’t usually wear, makes you feel slightly uncomfortable, or is a pairing of garments you never considered before. This is brilliant! This threshold of uncertainty and anticipation is where your true artistry will begin to emerge and shape. Creatives are meant to challenge the norm and take risks. Give yourself permission to find the micro-risks in your personal style regularly. 

Try to start out with a bold outfit once or twice a month. Something beyond your comfort zone. Let yourself get creative with what you already have or pop into your local thrift store for some hidden gems to spice up an outfit. Then, as you get a bit more comfortable with this, challenge yourself to have a bold outfit once a week. When you get to this point, you will begin to notice your daily outfits changing too. Congratulations at this point you have just pushed your personal style to a new place! Try to keep track of your outfits with some pictures on your phone, it is exciting to look back on how your style has morphed through the weeks and months of this task.

It isn’t always easy to take risks, but there was a quote I once heard in a film where they said “Sometimes all you need is twenty seconds of insane courage. Just literally twenty seconds of just embarrassing bravery. And I promise you, something great will come of it.” Take those 20 seconds of courage to put on that bold new outfit and walk out your door. You won’t regret it!
