I get bored pretty easily. I think it’s a key fault of mine, and one that’s not helped by my (somewhat short-sighted) tendency to wear certain items of clothing to absolute death. I’m sure some of you must be the same: after a while, the thought of putting on that pair of jeans again just becomes unbearable, no matter how fabulous it is or how much you adored it when you bought it. It’s not to do with disliking the clothes so much as getting tired of looking a certain way: maybe you’re totally over that fifties silhouette but you were so in love with it once you now own about fifty, flared high-waisted skirts and literally can’t get out the (pretty, feminine) rut. To help you mix it up and break out of your mould, I’ve had a little think and put together a list of 8 ways to update your look.
1. Get Experimental
It’s seems like a fairly obvious statement to make but, in order to change, it’s first necessary to try new things. If, for the last three years you’ve been a skinnies girl, why not give the new wide leg a whirl? Altering a key feature of your look – like the cut of your jeans – will inevitably lead you to find new pieces to complement the change, and in no time at all, you’ll be kitted out in a totally fresh style that says ‘you’ in a unique way that’s different from the last one.
2. Have High Lights (or Low Lights)
I would say dye your hair so it’s totally different, but I think that might be unrealistically extreme. A subtle lightening or darkening of your original colour, however, will give your look a new twist without completely destroying the vibe you’ve got going on to start with. If you’re going into summer, a few shimmery blonde strands will help to get you into sun-goddess mode, and if it’s about to be winter where you are, a little lightening might just brighten up the otherwise grey days.
