Show off your personality with smart and creative fashion choices
Have you ever asked yourself what your wardrobe says about you? We all have a style we’d like to present out into the world, whether it’s smart and sophisticated, fresh and fun or completely out of the box. But with big brands offering more of the same looks, it’s up to us to take our one-of-a-kind ideas into our own hands, and turn fashion dreams into a reality.
Luckily, making your clothes look and feel unique is easier than you might think, and with a few simple ideas at your disposal, you’ll be making a splash for all the right reasons. With that in mind, here are x ways to make your clothes completely one of a kind.
Create a personal brand
If you don’t have something to aim for, you won’t be able to make smart decisions when it comes to sprucing up your clothes. Start by creating a personal brand that you feel reflects you, your tastes and your personality. You might even go so far as to create a mood board with images, colours, materials and quotes that sum up the look you’re trying to achieve with your clothes. Any old clothing that does fit with your vision – donate them.
Think about factors like what your signature colours are going to be, and who out there in the world inspires you and your looks. It could be a fashion designer, a celebrity, a colourful character from your neighbourhood or even a family member. Not only will this keep your clothing consistent, but it can also give you more confidence and a more realised idea of who you are.
Get things tailored
Instead of throwing out an item of clothing because it’s too big or doesn’t quite fit, consider seeing a tailor. After all, a good tailor is every fashion fan’s best friend, transforming a wardrobe full of basic clothes into something truly special.
From repairing rips in your favourite clothes to making sure your jeans fit you like a glove, a tailor is an invaluable asset when it comes to take your looks to the next level.
Invest in custom embroidery
Making your clothes look and feel truly your own could be as simple as added a small design touch, almost like a brand logo. Custom embroidery can turn plain t-shirts, caps, shirts and more into something completely unique, with an endless array of design options available to you. Start with a high quality basic item – like a high quality piece of clothing from AS colour – and use your imagination to seek out custom embroidery services that can turn your vision into a reality. Screen printing and label printing services can also work in this regard.
Borrow from family members
When we love a piece of clothing, we hold onto it for years and years, even if we have no plan to wear it again. By asking a parent or grandparent if you can look through any of their favourite clothes from when they were younger, you can invest in a stunning retro style while also including a piece of personal family history in your regular wardrobe rotation. From a summer dress to a piece of statement jewellery, this is one of the simplest and most effective ways to inject your style with a sense of character.
Finally, and most importantly, be yourself. Good fashion is that which exemplifies who you are, rather than hiding it. Express your personality through your wardrobe, and wear it loudly and proudly!
