How Do You Know If You're in a Style Rut?

Well, if you find yourself...
  • Having difficulties figuring out what goes with what
  • Wasting more time and energy on deciding what to wear than preparing your breakfast
  • Falling back into the same outfit
  • Just feel that you have nothing to wear despite a stuffed wardrobe

In my outfit ideas-section you're going to discover how to make it easier for you to come up with different outfit combinations. If you're stuck and strapped for time, then you'll find these outfit "recipes" handy.

The chic fashionista Anna Villaruel says Most of us tend to avoid stepping outside of our comfort zone and just keep it safe. However doing that only keeps you from fully developing your sense of style and it results in feeling like your style is boring, wardrobe is hopeless, etc.

There's a new world out there, you know. You just have to dare to experiment and try new things - have fun with colors, textures and shapes. Don't worry about making mistakes - they help you learn and grow your style :-)

- Be Inspired and Create the Outfits

Now is the time to turn those clothes into outfits! There really isn't any exact formula on putting together clothes stylishly. We all have different clothing personalities - and what may look amazing on you might not look that great on me.

As long as you feel confident in your clothes, you'll look good. That's why it's super important to know what your best features are and accentuate them, as well as knowing how to disguise the parts you feel self-conscious about.
