How to Express Yourself Through Your Clothes

So many times, it’s too easy just to blend into the crowd when it comes to fashion. Maybe you don’t want to stand out. Different personalities call for different clothes but there’s always a need to make a little statement. There are so many ways that you can be completely professional in most of your outfit but then there’s that one little statement that makes all the difference. Your clothes should really say a little bit about you and who you are. If you really aren’t in to anything that makes a statement, then so be it but take a look a few of these ideas to brighten up your outfit and say a little something about who you are and where you came from.

Statement Jewelry
Statement jewelry is worn best when the rest of the outfit is fairly neutral, or at least the clothing next to the jewelry. If you are wearing a nude shirt with a navy blue skirt for work, a large statement necklace made up of different shades of pink would go just beautifully. Too much statement jewelry can look gaudy but just one or two pieces will complete your outfit like nothing else. Keep in mind that there are certain pieces that you don’t want to put together if you are just going for a day to day look; either earrings or necklaces should be worn but not both at the same time. Earrings and bracelets go nicely together but not necklaces and belts usually. Basically, anything that is going to be touching or near one another at some point should not be worn at the same time.

Exotic Skin Shoes
Exotic skin shoes like alligator skin shoes or crocodile skin shoes have become increasingly popular recently. You don’t have to just stick to shoes, there are belts, purses, wallets and more than are made out of the same stuff. If you are against the whole wearing animal idea but still like the look, you can buy faux exotic skin shoes. This is when it’s just material that is fabricated to look exactly like the real thing but no animals are harmed in their making. It’s a great way to still be able to wear the styles you like without the guilt of participating in the killing of animals simply for our pleasure.

Accent Belts
If you wear an accent belt, the best thing to do is wear it’s opposite color in a solid form behind it. For example, if you have a solid purple dress, a thin yellow belt would be quite becoming. If you’re nervous about putting colors together, wear all black or white with your accent belt and that’ll make it pop as well. Make sure you do the research and get the correct belt for your body shape as well as ensuring it is placed in the most flattering part of your torso. Some people can wear them on their hips, some look better at the waist line

A Pop of Color
This isn’t a specific accessory or piece of clothing, obviously. However, using a pop of color incorporated into an otherwise plain outfit will completely change your whole look. What went from a drab, ‘don’t know how to put my outfits together’ look will be transformed into a sleek, stylish, ‘just walked off a catalog’ look. Wearing all the same color is slimming, we know that, but adding one thing that’s a bright opposite color makes the outfit.

While exotic skin shoes might not be your taste, maybe some other type of shoe would be perfect for you. Not everyone is going to have the same tastes or likes or make the same decisions when it comes to clothes. It all depends on the person the decisions they make. You could prefer plain Jane Italian leather shoes but your eye glasses are the thing that makes the statement about you. Whatever is, what you put on your body or carry next to it should be an extension of your personality and who you are. That’s why some people can get away with the craziest outfits; because it’s just them and they can pull it off. And you can do the same.
