It can be easy to fall into a style rut, especially when you’re busy. You know what we’re talking about—those mornings when you just end up slipping into the same old getup everyone else seems to be wearing because you don’t have time to get inspired. But c’mon, we all have our own personal style, so it’s never our end goal to look like everyone else. Fortunately, it can be easy to stand out—you just need to keep a few tricks tucked away in the back of your closet.
Keep scrolling to check out the five unique style tips we always refer to when we want to stand out, and shop unique, statement-making pieces, too.
One way to instantly stand out from the pack is to stray from the norm. Don’t follow the rules; wear whatever you want to wear, whether that’s a unique off-the-shoulder top or an interesting jacket.
Play around with your style, and let a little off-the-cuff spontaneity in by experimenting with something new you’ve never really tried before. That could be a different way of styling your blouse (maybe experiment with a half tuck—or no tuck at all) or shopping for something fun (like a patchwork skirt or top with exaggerated sleeves).
The simplest way to look unique is to go for creative accessories. Even if you start with a basic outfit (like jeans and a tee), if you add cool extras (like an of-the-moment woven bag or belt), you’ll stand out from the crowd.
If you really want to be confident with your look, you need to ensure you feel great about the pieces you’re buying and wearing. Sure, everyone may have that certain pair of heels or that skirt, but if it doesn’t feel like you (maybe you just like a denim skirt vs. a midi style), it’s not the right fit. Go for items that showcase your personality.
We love the idea of switching it up from time to time. That way, you’ll never feel bored with your style. Test out a new silhouette, or go for an interesting clash, like pairing sneakers with your go-to formal dress.
