Fashion is the means to express yourself as genuinely as possible, allowing you the joys of experimenting with fashion as a means to express yourself. Some people think that experimenting with fashion means wearing the most outlandish clothes like the ones in Paris fashion shows, but that’s not the case.

Take a look at the three top low-key ways to experiment with new fashion styles that won’t draw stares wherever you go.

Accessories have significantly affected fashion styles for thousands of years and will continue to do so in the future. They usually comprise scarves, hats, earrings, belts, waist packs, and a pair of eyeglasses, and different people use a combination of different fashion accessories daily and occasionally.
Some essential accessories, such as regular glasses (or if you want a classic but subtle stylistic touch, vintage prescription sunglasses), are needed daily by those who wear them. Versatile accessories such as ones that will be used regularly are a smart choice for anyone that wants an item that stands the test of time.
You’ll often see many fashion accessories going in and out of trend through the decades, while others have stayed constant but perhaps rebranded or the design refreshed. One idea is to combine accessories that were popular in different eras to create a style that’s unique just to you.
With the right accessories, you can refresh your look without adding any new clothes to your collection. There’s a good reason why most celebrities keep changing their accessories almost yearly; it keeps their style and image – new and engaging.
Try A New Color
The choice of colors of an individual is usually determined at an early age, but that doesn’t mean one cannot try out or develop a preference for new colors as one grows up. When choosing new colors for clothing and accessories, keep your physique and personality in mind so you don’t choose something outlandish. Just like fashion trends, you don’t need to wear something that doesn’t appeal to you.
You also need to keep the colors of your current wardrobe in mind. This is to determine whether the new color you choose should synchronize with them or should it stand out on its own. This applies to female cosmetics such as lipstick, eyeshadow, and nail polish, all of which form an important part of their overall look.
Understanding how colors work will help you better choose your next dress or T-shirt color. Colors for clothing and accessories are divided into three categories- primary, secondary, and tertiary. Primary colors comprise yellow, red and blue. Secondary colors include orange, violet, and green, while all other colors are categorized in the tertiary category.
Colors should complement each other for the best effect instead of being the same for both tops and bottoms. There are also many other factors, so much so that there is an entire scientific premise behind the logic of choosing colors. Usually, guys will have an easier time choosing new colors compared to ladies as they have fewer things to balance out in their fashion wardrobe.
Use Your Favorite Pieces As A Starting Point
If you can’t decide exactly what you want, you can use your favorite pieces (your favorite shirt, pants, or jacket) as a starting point. Imagine that piece in a new color that is a bit more daring and unorthodox than usual. For example, if you’re a fan of green, you can try out blue and see how it works for you.
Try to choose universal colors which comprise colors from the primary and secondary categories of colors. Observe the color choices of your favorite celebrities, pop culture personalities, and cartoon characters to get ideas and inspirations of what the new cut and color of your clothing will be. Looking at others’ wear also helps you determine what you don’t want to wear, which is important.
Experimentation Is the Key
Experimenting with new fashion styles might seem like stepping out of your comfort zone if you’re used to your current style over an extended period.
But if you feel like you’re in a rut or dressed without any particular sense of style, experimentation with fashion is a must to shake things up. Keep the tips mentioned above in mind, and you should have a new fashion style in no time.
