Get Out of Your Comfort Zone: Take a Few Fashion Chances!
Hello beautiful ones! I pray that you’re doing exceedingly well!
Stepping outside of your fashion comfort zone can be difficult if you have no idea where to start. Like other things in life, believe it or not, when it comes to style, we all have our own convenient place as well. Maybe you don’t notice it, but you wear the things according to your comfort and stylishness. As long as those things are in harmony you’ll feel good regardless of what you’re wearing. And that’s ok because the most important thing is that you feel comfortable with yourself, no matter what others think.
But seriously, when was the last time you tried wearing a new color? It’s so easy to get stuck in one place – and why wouldn’t you; your comfort zone is your safety net. The trouble is, more often than not, that coziness keeps you from thinking – I mean dressing – outside the box and being fearless!

Here are a few tips that will help you navigate making a change in your fashion choices going forward:
- Find inspiration and make a plan.
If you feel bored with your wardrobe, the first thing that you should do is find inspiration. Nowadays, we have a lot of places such as Instagram, Pinterest, Fashion websites, etc. to find whatever we want. When you find items or outfits that speak to you capture the style on an app like Your Closet or Chicisimo. This will help you to maintain the motivation and you’ll feel the need to start doing something about it.
Now, don’t go willy nilly and jump in feet first. Like anything else, you need a plan to start the process and know when you get there. Plan to a few minutes a day to discover some new & fun ways to shop & enhance your closet.
- Pace yourself & be confident.
Take it slow; you don’t have to try everything at once. All change needs time and revving up your style is not the exception to the rule. The key to making any outfit your own is CONFIDENCE. Any variation that you make do it with enthusiasm, even if it’s as simple as wearing a piece of jewelry. Wear it boldly!
- Try new pieces with your basics.
Start pairing your basic pieces with some pieces that you scared you senseless before. For example, if you find inspiration in joggers try pairing them with a white tee and a utility jacket. As you wear it throughout the day check in with your emotions to see what feelings this new look is giving you. Trust me, with every baby step you take you’ll start to embrace the changes and before you know it you’ll be adding new & different items to your wardrobe.
- Be yourself & have fun!
Fashion should be fun so do your best to enjoy every step of your journey. The most important thing is that you feel comfortable while expressing your unique personal style. Take your time, be yourself, and you’ll find that a few tweaks here & there are all you need to up the ante on your style!
- Show off your new style.
That’s right…this is where you flaunt it and sashay across the room without a care in the world! You got this. Now go be #fearlessauthenticunapologetic!
