Do you ever feel like your outfits are lacking a personal touch or a little personality? You’ve nailed the neutral toned outfits but often feel like your outfits are in need of something extra.
While shopping for new pieces is certainly an option that usually only creates more options that you’ll struggle to wear and often result in a one-time wear.
A well-rounded wardrobe consists of your basics and key pieces. Your key pieces are those clothes, shoes and accessories that you can add to your outfits to add a touch of you. These pieces show off your personal taste and personality. They could range anywhere from a color, different shape to a print. Your choice in prints helps to show off what you like and your personal style making your look your own.
Instead of avoid prints and sticking to a neutral toned wardrobe, allow prints to be the extra touch to your outfits and help you to start creating different outfits around the clothes you have.
In fashion, you always have options. If a bold and colorful print seems too overwhelming for you, you have different ways of wearing it vs completely ruling it out. You can go for a more toned down print and/or a smaller accessory to help ease your way into feeling more comfortable wearing prints.
Where to start with prints:
Starting with a neutral print will make it 10 times easier to warm up to wearing prints because you can pair a neutral print with anything in your closet. A neutral print will work with any color and any print and it’ll be an instant match. Beginning with a neutral print will allow you to repeat the same item over and over again, styling it with different pieces in your wardrobe allowing you to feel more confident pulling off a print before committing to buying more pieces.
