Easy ways to switch up your style

Find out how easy it is to switch to a fresh style.

Whoever said you aren’t allowed to switch up your style had no clue what they were talking about. We think that switching up your style is a necessary step in your ongoing style evolution. If you were a preppy girl throughout college and well into your adult years and you are ready to slip into some gorgeous women’s heels or that leather biker jacket you’ve always dreamed of, then look no further as we’ve got some cool tips and tricks that’ll help you switch up your style!

Research assorted styles
Now let’s start with the fun part. Buy some glossy magazines, log into Pinterest or Instagram, and you have a world full of inspiration right at your fingertips. Here, you will see the latest fashion trends not only from the runway but also from influencers. What’s great is that you can also create a board on Pinterest and save all your style ideas in one space, making it easier to refer back to when you eventually go shopping.

Get rid of the clutter
Before you head out the front door for an epic shopping spree, you first need to clear out some clothing and accessories you no longer wear AND that you know you would not want to wear in the future. Don’t just toss them away but instead go to your local goodwill and drop it off. PS, always clean your items before giving them to charity. What decluttering does is show you firstly what you have in your wardrobe, what you are not wearing, and what you can give away. If you have an idea of your fresh style, only toss out clothing you know will not match your new style. And if you are feeling extra brave, revamp the entire wardrobe while you are at it.

Plan your looks
Right, you have your fresh style in mind, and you’ve decluttered your wardrobe and donated any clothing you will no longer need. Now it’s time to plan your new looks. A tip here is to think about your outfits and how they can match each other and the rest of the clothing in your wardrobe. Not only is this cost-effective, but it also opens you up to creative ways of dressing up or down. And now you are ready to head out of the front door to snap up your new looks.

It’s not only about the clothes
Your style is not only defined by your clothes. You can easily switch up your style with a new haircut and a different daily makeup look. And we’ve got some tips for you.

Makeup:
This one is really about your preference. If you’ve only stuck to simple makeup like a little blush here or there with lipstick and mascara, now’s the time to swap it for something out there. Add a few hints of gold to your eyes, contour your cheekbones and add an extra step in your lip routine by applying lip liner before you apply your lipstick. These subtle additions will completely transform your new look. Another tip to consider is to match your makeup to your new style. So, if you’ve gone with the off-the-catwalk look, then bright and bold makeup is exactly what you are after. Remember, it’s all about your taste. And that’s what makes changing your style so fun; you are allowed to customize it to suit your needs.

Hair:

Many of us are unaware of how amazing we’d look if we just changed our hairstyles. And while it’s completely normal to stick to one hairstyle your entire life if you so choose, a trim here and a tint there will add straight fire to your new style. Have Rapunzel-length hair? Head down to your local beauty salon and opt for a chic bob. Already have short hair. Heck, go shorter and get a buzz cut. Buzz cuts are highly attractive and not only reserved for men. You can also look at the latest hairstyle trends to see what’s in for the season. And while we know going for a trim every six weeks or even changing your hairstyle every season can become a costly affair, changing your hair does add so much character. PS, always go for a hairstyle that suits your face, and generally, hair stylists know exactly what works and what does not.

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

No one prepares you for the honeymoon phase wearing off

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

Let's start off with the simple fact that God made everyone differently. That statement could not be more evident. We try to embrace our differences and set ourselves apart from the rest of the world. What that doesn't prepare us for is when we yearn for a characteristic of someone else. For example, have you ever met someone who can experience this great heart ache and hardly shed a tear? This person just had their heart ripped out and they find a way to carry themselves through it with great composure. Well, not all of us have that desirable trait. Some of us wear our hearts on our wet sleeves. When a person has their heart on their sleeve, it can be viewed as a good thing, that the individual isn't shallow. However,

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.
