How your Clothes can Help you Stand Out

Lots of us want to get noticed. Whether it’s to gain the attention of somebody you find attractive or perhaps you feel it helps with your confidence. Whatever the reason is, wearing the right clothes can help you out.

This doesn’t mean that you should become a peacock. This is someone who tries way too hard to get others attention by wearing over the top clothing items. Sure, you’ll get attention, but for all the wrong reasons!

Whether you like it or not, people judge others based on the clothes they wear. The world we live in can be a cruel place, but it seems like everybody is guilty of it now and again.

Take a photo each day of your Outfit

Taking a photo each day can help you keep track of what works and what doesn’t. This works especially well if you wear an outfit that you don’t feel comfortable in. Taking a picture can give you a little bit more self-awareness, and what your clothes really look like in a two-dimensional image. By taking a picture every day, it gives you more awareness of how your wardrobe works.

Some people like to post pictures of their outfits everyday online, which can offer you a little bit of extra motivation. Perhaps all your followers are not into fashion so sharing these images privately with a close friend or perhaps someone who works in fashion can also prove beneficial.

After a long period of taking these pictures, you will be much more advanced and informed on your style and it can help you make improvements.

The Color Wheel can help you choose a Color Scheme

You’ll probably regret ignoring your science teacher when they spoke about the color wheel, because in the fashion world it is a big deal. To get noticed in a crowd your color scheme is vital because the human mind sees beauty in the following:

  • Symmetry
  • Balance
  • Repeated patterns

People tend to respond well to nice color combinations in both accessories and clothing. If you have figured out the way the color wheel works, it will give you a whole new outlook on combining colors and help you create a well-balanced outfit.

One of the ways the color wheel can help you is that colors can be classified through temperature. Warm colors such as orange, yellow and brown, while cooler colors are from green through violet. Neutral colors, such as black, white, brown, and gray are known as “colorless”. When you wear an outfit that uses a warm color scheme, it can stimulate the viewer as these colors appear more active, while cooler colors appear more relaxing.

Professional fashion designers regularly use the color wheel to help them combine colors. They often choose two complementary colors (colors at opposite sides of the color wheel), then pick one that is a shade darker than and combine them. You don’t have to worry about whether or not they will match as complementary colors match every time.

Be Different, Make Your Own Clothes and Accessories

During the global pandemic, many of us are forced to stay at home to help reduce the spread of the virus. With all this free time on our hands, lots of us spend hours staring at screens to deal with the boredom. However, all this free time is a great opportunity to learn a new skill.

Creating your own clothes will help you stand out in a crowd. Unique and creative people always get noticed. Making your clothes also means no one else may be wearing the same outfit as yours. Who knows, you might make your own clothing label!

It seems like everybody is sewing and knitting during the pandemic. Sewing machines are widely available, and it is possible to purchase a refurbished machine for a fraction of the price in comparison to a new one.

Although pre-made clothing is often rather cheap, sometimes employees at these cheap clothing manufacturers work in terrible working conditions. Their salary is often extremely low and they work incredibly long hours. Cheap clothing can have a devastating effect on our environment because of the toxic chemicals used.

Creating your own clothes can be lots of fun. Making your own customized labels for fabric products, knitting a new scarf, or even making a face mask to help you during the pandemic are some of the things you can do with your new skill.

Conclusion

It isn’t always easy to be unique to help you gain attention from onlookers, but with the help of the color wheel and keeping records of your outfits it will help you understand your fashion sense a bit more. Networking with professional people in the fashion industry, or even friends with good fashion taste can help you improve your wardrobe.
