We don’t have too many opportunities to show our personality off in a direct way, but our look is most definitely one of them. While our appearance isn’t the most important thing in the world, it does play a big role, both in how others see us and how we see ourselves. If it’s been some time since you’ve changed your look, then it could be time to mix things up a little and make your style a little more exciting. But how can you do this? We take a look at a few essential tips below.

Find Your Style
First thing’s first: what is your style? Most people follow the trends or just go with whatever everyone else seems to be wearing. Yet, while those looks can be good, it’s unlikely that it’ll be a perfect match for your personality. Part of the process of livening up your look will involve finding your sense of style. This takes time, but a good place to start is to think about the image you want to present to the world, and what you feel comfortable wearing. The blend of these two things will lead to a sense of style that’s utterly your own.
Take a look around at what people are wearing on the streets, and you’ll see essentially the same items of clothing over and over again. If you want to stand out from the crowd, then it’s a good idea to add some unique clothing to your wardrobe. There are plenty of easy ways to do this! You could take a look at second-hand markets for vintage pieces, or you could check out a brand such as The Mountain, which offers stunning, uniquely designed t-shirts and other items of clothing. You’ll find that it’s much easier to have a lively look if you’re wearing clothing that has been especially sourced, and which you know will always look the part.
As well as your clothes, think about other aspects of your appearance. There’s a lot of capacity to liven things up just through your hair and makeup, for instance. If you’ve been playing things too safe, then could it be time to opt for a style that’s a little bolder? How you go about this will depend on the type of look you’re trying to achieve. You might find that you need to visit a professional hairstylist to get your dream look. For your makeup, take a look at YouTube tutorials — there are plenty of excellent ones on there.
Other ways to add an element of boldness to your look is to make the most of accessories, which can really help take an outfit to the next level.
Finally, if you want to stand out a little more, look at giving your confidence a boost. A confident person will always seem more intriguing! This is, of course, not always the easiest task in the world, but there are things you can do that’ll help with your confidence.
