In a Style Rut? Get Back On Track and Look Your Best Again

Are you in a style rut? Maybe you’ve been wearing your hair the same way for as long as you can remember, or always reach for the same style of clothing when you get dressed. When life is fast paced and chaotic, it can feel like a struggle maintaining your style and identity. Particularly if you work long hours, or have children and just don’t get much time. But it’s so important to make the time for yourself. When you know you look good, you have more confidence and can go out and achieve your best potential with nothing holding you back. If you’ve found yourself in a bit of a rut when it comes to your style, here are a few ways to get out of it.


Change Your Hair

If you’ve had your hair the same way for many years, it might not be doing you any favours. For example, very dark or light hair might have looked striking when you were younger. However fast forward a few years and the same shade could look harsh, accentuate facial shadows and be ageing on you now. The same applies to very long or short hair. If you’ve always dyed your hair another colour, going back to your roots could be a good option. This is always going to be the shade that’s the most flattering, you could always add some interest with highlights or lowlights. Consider speaking to a professional hairdresser you will be able to give you advice based on your face shape and colourings. Or you could find out more on a site like www.prevention.com.


Lose Excess Weight or Tone Up

Has your style rut come about because you’re not happy with your body? When you don’t feel at your best, you’re less likely to want to try new things. It’s easy to get stuck in a rut of wearing clothing items just because you feel comfortable and covered up in them. Shedding some excess weight or toning up may give you the confidence to try new things again. For example, if you only wear certain styles because they cover your arms/legs/stomach (delete as appropriate!) once you’ve slimmed down or toned those areas you might find you’re happy to try something new. If you’re already at a healthy weight but just have areas of fat you can’t get rid of, then liposuction from places such as belredcosmeticsurgery.com could help. There are also non- invasive body sculpting procedures you can have done these days. So if your shape is an issue for you, then they could be worth considering. Once you’re at a shape you’re happy with, finding clothes and dressing in a style you love will be so much easier.

Hair
Your hairstyle can dramatically impact your overall appearance - it can speak volumes about your personality, influences, and interests if you want it to. Now, many of us stick to very safe styles that blend into the crowd. This is why you see so many people with their natural hair shades, long locks and blunt cuts with centre partings. But why not switch things up a bit. You don’t necessarily have to shave the sides and dye your hair a wild colour. A few subtle changes can make all the difference! Consider a fringe, switching to a natural colour that doesn’t happen to b…

If you’re planning on heading away from home at some point in the upcoming year, chances are that you have already looked into different destinations, different excursions and activities, and different ways of getting from A to B. But have you put much thought into who you are going to travel with? Your travel companion really can make or break a trip. A trip to somewhere that isn’t all too exciting and lacks things to see and do with someone you get on really well with will generally be better enjoyed than a trip to a stunning and luxurious location with someone you can’t stand.
