It is apparent to us that everyone spent their lockdown in pyjamas and loungewear. We all attended our office meetings and virtual parties in PJs. And with that came our unawareness of the fashion trends and rules. It is not embarrassing as everyone is going through the same thing. And we all want to tackle the problem now that the lockdown is finally over.
Today, we’ve got some tips for you to rediscover your fashion after this COVID-19 trauma.
Don’t rush to get back what you lost. It isn’t lost; It is right there with you because you can’t lose your personal style. You just need to sit back, relax, and try to figure out what is it that makes you happy and stylish at the same time. Go online, look at what’s happening in the fashion world and figure out what will suit you the most. It is a matter of time that you will get your style back and you’d be able to get out with much more confidence than you had earlier.
ELIMINATE THE PRESSURE OF SOCIAL MEDIA
We realize how much social media affect us and how important it has become to post the best of our looks on social media. But we ask you to calm down. Just dress up and feel the beauty of your style yourself. Social media can wait. Try things until you’re 100% sure of them. You are not bound to it. Instagram, Facebook are all secondary things and you shouldn’t let them pressurize you into doing/wearing something that you are not comfortable in.
INDULGE YOUR IMAGINATION
Run your imagination wild. You know what will look good on you. You know what to pair up with what. Just expand your horizons of imagination. Run a fashion show inside your room. It surely is time-consuming but totally worth it. Your brain is your most powerful tool; Use it to curate looks even more powerful.
IGNORE UNWANTED OPINIONS
Don’t let people tell you what might look good on you and what might not. You don’t have to seek anyone’s appraisal. Everything that you do should be for yourself and not to impress others. This is the most important thing that you need to understand. Get ready for yourself, in clothes, you feel beautiful wearing; your comfortable clothes that match your personality and personal style. People will always offer you their advice even when you don’t ask; you need to learn to ignore that and stay true to your style.
GET THE ‘NECESSARY’ ITEMS
Add some necessary items to your wardrobe. Some statement pieces, timeless clothing items, and things that are essential to a girl. A white shirt, a pair of bootcut jeans, a pair of slim-fit jeans, a denim jacket, an LBD, a basic white/black t-shirt, a bold red lipstick, and a pair of basic sneakers. These are a few items that every girl should own.
DECREASE THE LOAD
When you have a lot of items in your wardrobe, it is possible to get confused about what to choose. The number of products doesn’t define a good wardrobe but the number of quality products that you actually wear. Sell or donate the extra products that you don’t wear anymore or that you might have purchased by mistake. Declutter your wardrobe and keep products that you see yourself wearing in the near future.
DON’T CRY OVER WHAT YOU DON’T HAVE
There is no way you can own everything, even if you’re extremely rich. So the best idea is to curate the best styles with what you have. Ideas are innumerable, you just need to think a little harder. There is no way you can’t create magic with your present wardrobe.
DON’T SAVE FOR ‘THAT LONG DISTANT OCCASION’
We all save our fanciest piece of clothing for some or the other special occasion. Trust us, it’s not worth it. Dress up for now. You never know what’s in the future for you. The dress you are saving might go out of style by then or you might lose few kilos and the dress won’t fit you anymore. So, it is best to make the best out of it while you can.
We hope this article helped you took some stress off your shoulders. Now you mow what you have to do to restore your confidence by restyling yourself after this huge PJ phase.
