Why Changing up Your Style Can Be a Good Thing

It's no secret that when it comes to fashion, we tend to find what works and roll with it. I know for a fact I'm majorly guilty of this. When we browse through our local stores, our eyes skim past anything deemed as 'not me', and head straight for the pieces that are comfortable, and we know will look good on us. And there is nothing wrong with that, to an extent.

But we should embrace change! Think back five years or so a go, did you dress the same way you do now? The chances are you didn't, because you and your style have evolved. I know personally, I would never wear some of the clothes I did five years ago, and that's okay. It doesn't mean I now cringe or hate what I wore (I mean let's be honest, some trends were pretty horrific), because at that point in my life, that's what I liked and what I felt represented my style.

A lot of people hate trends, for the fear of 'following the crowd', but sometimes the following the crowd mentality, is a step forward for some. I mean think back to last summer, culottes were something I've always thought looked cool, but would never have had the guts to wear them. Then fast forward, and low and behold culottes are in and everyone's styling them up. And I loved this. The fact everyone was wearing them and they were now 'trendy', meant I wasn't afraid to try them. I didn't fear standing out from the crowd because the crowd loved them!

My point is, don't be afraid to experiment. Of course we're all going to have our go to styles, I mean there's no way I can see myself not wearing as many black clothes as possible. But next time, when you're browsing your local Primark, pick up something a little bit out of your comfort zone? If you don't like it, that's fine, no loss here. But if you do, not only have you expanded your choices, but the confidence boost you'll get from potentially finding something new that you look amazing in, will feel incredible.
