BORED OF YOUR LOOK? SHAKE THINGS UP

Looking in your closet, are you finding yourself feeling a little unenthusiastic about what you find in there? Are you tired of the same old looks, the same old items and the same old outfits? Its normal to feel uninspired every now and then, but there are some small hacks and tricks we've picked up over the years to get your juices flowing again.

If you need to add a little something extra to your outfits or are just feeling generally bored with what you’ve currently got to work with, here are some suggestions that we use to shake up our style.

TIP 1. LOOK TO THE PAST

Time travel may not be possible, but in this case, retro fashion Instagram accounts can be your gateway to a bygone era. Check out: 90sanxiety and shesvague to start your journey to the past.

tip 2. UNLOAD ITEMS

Find a consignment store or a donation crop-off near you and simply get rid of the items that you’re getting bored of. Sometime inspiration hits when you’ve only got a few tools to work with.

TIP 3. HAVE A SWAP MEET

Tell your friends and have them tell their friends, then meet up and bring some clothes that you’re willing to trade.

TIP 4. ADD ACCESSORIES

Dive in to that collection of accessories that you’ve forgotten about and add a bunch of them to your outfit rather than just wearing the same ones all the time.

TIP 5. GO DOWN AN IG WORMHOLE

Just go to the ‘Explore’ page on Instagram, find the first fashion-related post that grabs you and get ready to lose a couple hours following some new inspirations.

TIP 6. TAKE OLD SHOES OUT OF STORAGE

People tend to keep their most commonly worn shoes in arm’s reach and put away the ones they wear less often. Take all of your shoes out from the back of the closet so you have more options to choose from before stepping out.

TIP 7.START FROM ONE

Dig in to the back of your closet, find an item that you rarely wear (or maybe forgot you had) and build an outfit around it. This will add one more item to your day-to-day clothes.
