Some individuals might look at the title of this article and get slightly confused as to how fashion can be intimidating.
Fashion and trends are something that are constantly evolving and revolving, and whilst some people embrace these constant changes, others feel that fashion seems to leave them trailing a long way behind. The key is not to focus too intensely on trends but focus on what works for you. Being versatile and taking chances with your style is something that should be done over a course of time, but for now, choose a brand that you feel represents you and the look you are trying to achieve. Learn to trust this brand and identify with the style and fit of their clothes.
Fashion should not scare you or intimidate you in any way. Fashion can be fun at any stage of your life. The mistake that many people make when it comes to buying clothes is that they create too many comparisons in their head, and this is what puts them off. By comparisons we mean that we often compare ourselves to others more than we should. We must all understand that there are some clothes that will work on us, and some clothes that look better on others, but this should not make us afraid of buying nice clothes or wanting to improve on our style. We just need to make the right choices.
The first bit of advice when starting a new wardrobe is to initially keep things simple. Try to create a good balance with your outfits. Try to aim for quality over quantity because this will set you aside from those who just rush out and by everything that is on trend. Invest in some smart casual outfits, and then some more formal clothes that can bring you that little bit of confidence when you need to spruce up. Do not be intimidated by clothes. The right clothes are there to make us look good not bad.
