When it comes to finding our own style, we are often as informed by our limits as we are possibilities. This might sound completely pessimistic, but luckily it can be broken through. This is because most limits we place on ourselves, especially relating to our style, are completely self-imposed. We may feel that certain colors don’t match us, that we might not be able to pull off a certain garment, or that dreaming to wear something is out of the question.
These decisions and thoughts are usually due to a lack of self-confidence. This might be self-confidence that we have lacked from the start, or confidence that dissipated due to life events. For example, after pregnancy, some women feel less inclined to resume wearing certain wardrobe items.
However, fashion and personal style is what you make of it. With our guides to fixing these negative beliefs, you will breakthrough all limits regarding your style. Consider:
What If You Just Did?
They can be many, many limits we place on ourselves on any given day. They can justify themselves to us time and time again. When it comes to our limits in fashion, we may have a complex web of issues that prevent us from doing what we want. Sometimes, rational thinking cannot penetrate this complex web. Sometimes, you simply need to think ‘what if I just did?’
This might mean getting a new silver helix piercing, the new tattoo you have wanted for some time, or even wearing a dress for the first time in years. When simply going for it, you can often see past the negative self-talk and laugh at it from the other side. This can be an extremely liberating feeling. However, you’ll only know if you do and take that chance. What are you waiting for?
Join An Online Community
You are likely not the only person who feels this way. Joining an online community such as those found on reddit can sometimes help you connect with people who think like you. Posting your fashion hauls, asking for advice, running a fan club, or simply reading the stories of others can inspire you to celebrate fashion and reduce your negative mindset. It is only when we start thinking positively that we see how much potential is out there. You deserve to find this for yourself.
Learn What You Love
Here is the fun part. When you break through this mentality, you often find that the entire process of learning what you love anew is so fun that you can feel like a giddy child learning to play for the first time. With the right social group, the willingness to celebrate this new part of your life, and potentially post your journey on social media can help you truly implement this milestone of your life. Positivity breeds positivity, and so finding what you love once will often lead to the next thing, and so on.
With these tips, you are sure to think anew regarding your style decisions.
