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.

Natural Fixes For Problem Skin

Confidence. It’s a word that nearly every woman uses to describe anyone but herself. To be confident, you have to be secure within yourself. You have to believe in yourself. When you’re at work or with your friends, it’s likely that you feel envious of those who come across as confident and together, when actually most people are totally faking it and just as insecure and worrisome as you are. But, what makes someone confident? Is it the clothes that they wear? Is it the security of their bank account? Is it a sheer rejection of anything that resembles conformity, so that they can be happy with exactly who they are? It’s likely a huge mix of all of those things. It’s often far easier to focus on flaws than it is to focus on what makes you beautiful, which is why confidence is such an issue among women.
