Are you being stereotype for your fashion sense?
We cannot entirely put the blame people for stereotyping us.After all, we are the one to that decide what to wear, which colour suits us, what kind of accessories, handbags and shoes we have.
Fashion style is so individual and personal, a friend once said. How true it is. Many of us follow a set style of dressing and sometimes a safe way of dressing. We present ourselves in the same way all the time, day in and day out so much so that we are now branded. Many of us probably do not mind being branded, after all it is a safer bet.
But just think for a moment, wouldn't it be great if no-one could actually guess what you are going to wear today. Then friends wouldn't be able to stereotype you.
It's really not very difficult to do so and it's so much more fun.
How do get started? First ask yourself, are you happy being branded? If you are, that's fine, if you can change that if you are not happy with stereotyping.
Getting out of the being branded syndrome is not difficult. There are a few thought provoking questions you have to ask yourself first before making that move.
Are you happy with the way you dress and the way you look?
Do you sometime wish that you could be more adventurous in your fashion style?
Do you like to be different?
Would you be uncomfortable getting envious stares from people?
And would you like to be an individual?
The way out of this branding syndrome need not be life changing, in fact it will be fun. All that is needed are just a few adjustments and a new mindset.
Look at your wardrobe, your jewellery, shoes and bags. Are they all of the same colour, shape and designs? I know it's only too easy to always go back to the same design and style because we are comfortable with it and we feel we look good in it.
Make small changes, using your favourite colour and styles as your base and then expand from there. Add on an orange floral scarf to your favourite blue dress. Wear a chain round the waist instead of a belt. Carry a bold coloured handbag with your black working suit. Wear red high heel shoes with black leggings. Make changes that does not take you away from your comfort zone yet still gives you a different look.
If you are ready to be adventurous, have a different variety of style in your wardrobe. Try different colours everyday, be adventurous in mixing and matching colours and accessories. Instead of the usual black business suits wear something different that is both smart and elegant. It need not be black if you like dainty necklaces but not sure if it will look good on you then wear several strands of the dainty necklace. Make a statement, be different.
Go beyond the norm. We don't have to dress like the supermodels or the celebrities but we can make the latest fashion trend work for us. As long as you are adventurous, the fashions that you thought were beyond your reach can now be available to you through improvisation.
Nothing is impossible, as long as you feel good with what you are wearing and you can carry that fashion style well. You know you have done the right thing when friends tell you how great you look or ask where you got your outfit from.
Have fun with fashion. Feel good and be different. You are not branded anymore. You are an individual!
