As a Personal Stylist, when I first meet with a new one-on-one client, they often say they hired me because they are bored with their current wardrobe/style and want to step outside of their comfort zone but need some help getting there. And I am always so excited to hear this because this is my specialty!
As we all know though, old habits are hard to break.
So when it comes right down to it and my client is face to face with an "I would never pick that out for myself" item I have picked out for them, I can see the look of fear in their eyes. It can sometimes be tricky to get them to actually try something new.
The excitement about wanting to have some more fun with fashion quickly turns into, “Oh, I could never pull that off”, or “I really love it, but it’s just not me.”
But that's the whole point!
If you're in a style rut and you’re wanting to freshen things up, you have to do try something you've never done before and experiment a bit!
So I have a challenge for you…
Within the next week, I want you to not just push yourself, but give yourself a seriously good shove, to try something new.
Something you have wanted to wear but have been too scared to.
Maybe it’s a seasonal trend, a new colour, a different cut of clothing.
Or maybe it's actually wearing that piece in your closet you absolutely love, but have been too nervous to wear.
Just remember, it’s only clothing, not a tattoo!
Once you put that clothing on your body, it can easily be removed if you don't like it.
But do try to be open minded and objective before deciding to ditch it.
Does it really look bad? Or are you just not used to it and worried about doing something new or what others may say.
I say if it excites you, give it a go!
Worst case scenario? You will have spent some time experimenting and in the end, realize that it doesn’t work for you.
Best case scenario? You will be pleasantly surprised and have some fun with your style!
Which may just lead to more fun and experimenting with fashion in the future…ultimately getting you further and further away from your ruts.
Okay, so are you ready to do this? C'mon, I know you want to!
If you're not quite ready yet though, come on over and ask to join my FREE Style Society Facebook Group and watch other women just like you take some fun fashion risks!
Maybe you'll later become one of them!
You can even chat with me there about what you're interested in wearing/buying, but maybe nervous about. I'd love to cheer you on and would be happy to brainstorm some ideas with you that would make you more comfortable to give it a go.
What do you have to lose except maybe a couple of style ruts...
P.S. If you’re looking to surround yourself with women who have said "YES!" to upping their style game (and become one yourself!), you'll probably want to know about this. You can thank me later. xo
