We’ve all been accused at one time or another of being a fake, weirdo, loud or high maintenance; generally, a poser. Many of us figure out how to ignore these harsh words and embrace ourselves as we are, but others have given up and became slaves to every passing trend.
NO MORE HIDING! For too much time we’ve been confined and shut down by our peers. Embrace the lifestyle that suits you, usually the one YOU wish to live. Mix up a couple of, if you would like, as long as you’re being yourself and not only what’s socially acceptable!
Take the ability out of those words that used to hurt our feelings and promote style over fashion. What others called a fashion faux pas you can reveal to the planet as your own unique style. Whether you identify with one of many six Lifestyles below or you’re a blend of more than one depending in your mood. undetectable lace wig
Now choose Your Lifestyle and by all means don’t limit yourself!
Alternative – You aren’t on the edge you are the edge. If you prefer skinny, skinny jeans, thick shoes, ripped pieces, chains, zippers, skulls, chokers, loud hair colors and your eyelashes as dark since the shadows then rock on until your enemies are gone. Embrace the Alternative Lifestyle!
Bohemian – You are a totally free Spirit and like everything easy, breezy, unconventional, wild, and exotic, with effortless beauty. If this describes your wardrobe and life motto you then are loving the non-conformist Bohemian Lifestyle – Peace, Love and Fashion!
Glamour – You’re always ready for a photograph op because you’re constantly dressed to impress. Your wardrobe isn’t complete without the best accessories and only a little sparkle (or perhaps a lot) and if you refer to any or all your chosen designers by their first name then, undoubtedly, you are living the Glamorous Lifestyle.
Urban – You are catwalking the streets of the concrete jungle! You prefer to keep your style a little bit sporty showing the boys that there isn’t to be formal to be beautiful. Your style defines your own unique personality and street smarts with a touch of trendy fashion and hip-hop influence then you’re rocking the Urban Lifestyle.
Firstly I split my wardrobe into sections. “Classic Can Wear Forever” and “Was On-Trend At The Time,But Think I Need To Move On “.But stop, don’t throw those clothes in the bin just yet, keep them long enough and they will come back in fashion. A few years ago you wouldn’t have thought you’d ever be wearing shoulder pads would you?
So now there is space in your wardrobe, it’s time to update your style. Great, how can we start?
Personally I start with the fashion magazines and remember its not only clothes we are looking at, but hair, make-up, nail varnish and a million and one different accessories.
I plan for the growing season ahead, there is very little point in updating your summer wardrobe at the end of August. Prepare for Winter 2010. Have a good look at those magazines and get a notion of along with trends, cuts and must have items. Circle things that you like and start to create some outfits in your mind. Always bear in mind your shape, age and lifestyle. Restrictive ball gowns are not that perfect for doing the institution run.
Have a fashioned themed party at home. Invite friends and family and crack open a container of wine. Ask them to choose items they believe you would look good in. Its sometimes interesting to find out how others perceive you whilst remembering that your opinion is the most important.
Once you’ve got a notion of the outfits you want to create, its time to have down seriously to money. Money talks. Set yourself a budget and stay with it. With all the high street competition available these days its easy to appear on trend for less.
Be brave. Sometimes I dismiss the most recent female fashion trends since they won’t suit me, but how do you really know if you never try them on. Set yourself a “try on” day and just keep trying different styles. You will soon be really surprised to observe that clothes you would never normally dare to wear, can look super cool.
