How to be an Individual in the South

July 27th, 2017 at 2:00am

It’s hard to find different pieces of clothing that you would want to wear. Finding what makes it you is even harder. Most people, I believe, open their social media platforms to see what people are wearing and think they should go out and buy the same pieces. Most people look at trendy styles on social media and think to themselves, “I need to go buy that so I can be a part of the trend.” This is a common occurrence in my hometown, which is a small place with no mall but a lot of boutiques. Since everyone shops at the same places, everyone has similar styles. I don’t think this a bad thing, but it makes it hard to be individualistic and find your own personal style!

1—Stepping Out of Your Zone. Finding your personal style is pretty easy; you just have to learn how to step out of your comfort zone. My first tip to finding your individual style is not buying complete outfits at the same places. Try to pick out different pieces at each place you visit such as a unique top and then some distinctive pants that you may like. The cropped wide leg jean is a huge trend and also different, and you can pair it with a simple shirt. Boom! You are individual and stepping out of your comfort zone.

2—Size it Your Way.

My second tip would be to accessorize your outfit to give it a sense of flair. You can really make an outfit look unique by adding watches, rings, or necklaces. My favorite thing to do is to pair my simple outfits with a statement necklace and a distinctive belt. This is how I like to show my individuality throughout my look.

3—Self Confidence.

My third and final tip on finding your individual style is to be self-confident. A good thing to do whenever you are feeling down about your individuality is to get a notebook and write down things you love about your style. It could be the accessories that you style with your top or your shoes (anything will work)! Never be ashamed or tell yourself that you can’t wear something that is different! You are individual, and it’s okay to stand out of the crowd and be who you want to be stylishly!

At the end of the day, it can be really hard finding what type of clothes you enjoy wearing that make you feel individual. Just remember, the most important thing is for you to feel confident in what you are wearing!
