The dog days of summer are upon us and I’m in constant search of ways to look stylish without also looking bedraggled. Some days that’s easy to do and others… I just feel uninspired by my options. Those are the days I try to expand my style comfort zone by experimenting.
Today I’m back with Pam from Over 50 Feeling 40 to share our style tip for August. It’s easy to get into a fashion rut this time of year. It’s too soon to wear our new or favorite fall clothes and our summer clothes can feel a little flat. What to do?
Step out of your comfort zone. Try something new, spread your style wings and make a new statement. Be brave and creative. Look to women whose style you admire and borrow a few ideas. You may discover an entirely new look that feels fabulous on you.
If you always wear that sun dress with a specific necklace and sandals, change it up by tossing a denim jacket or shirt tied at the waist over it. Always wear earrings and a necklace? Try adding brooches instead. Always choose flat sandals, experiment with new shapes that have a comfortable 1 1/2 ” heel.
Try combining pieces in ways you’ve never mixed before. Visit an antique fair or consignment shop and hunt for some unique accessories. These are the kind of things that keep us from looking like everyone else.
I’m happy to stand out in the crowd and look unique. For August, I’m going to stretch that further and experiment even more.
Now let’s pop over to see Pam’s style tip of the month.
How about you? Are you comfortable standing out from the crowd? Feeling the need to break out of a rut? How are you doing that? Let me know in the comments.
