Hands up who’s guilty of throwing a style tantrum every now and then?
Admit it or not, we’ve all been there.
You might be standing in front of your fit-to-burst wardrobe before a night out, for example, moaning about how you’ve honestly got absolutely nothing to wear.
Or spending months growing out your hair only to wake up one morning and decide on the spur-of-the-moment to have it all chopped off again.
It’s super easy to get bored with your appearance, especially when we’re constantly inundated with Instagram selfies of ever-changing style chameleons like Rihanna and Kylie Jenner.
But unless you’ve also got a celebrity budget, affording a quarterly wardrobe revolution isn’t feasible.
To save your bank account from total disaster at the same time as satisfying your fashion cravings, we’re sharing three quick cheats that’ll help you shake up your style.
Embrace the lob
Instead of going super short or frustrating yourself growing it out, embrace the perfectly on-trend middle ground with a lob haircut.
The long bob has been loved by the celebrity crowd for years, it’s chic length adding a touch of elegance to any ensemble. The fact that it can be worn loose and tumbling for a night out, whilst also looking just as flawless pinned up the next day, is a mega plus for wannabe style chameleons.
Nailing the ultimate cut of the moment is surprisingly easy. Invest in some hair curling tools (the Mark Hill pick and mix wand is one of our favourites) and style your locks into versatile, beachy waves. Whether hitting a bar or heading into the office, it’s a look sure to turn heads.
Celebrate your natural beauty
You may have spent the past few months perfecting the art of contouring, highlighting and brow-filling, but it’s time to put down the brushes. No makeup is apparently the beauty look of 2017.
Spearheaded last year by the likes of Alicia Keys, who boldly faced red carpets entirely free of makeup, there’s a real industry focus on encouraging women to embrace their natural beauty.
You don’t have to go completely bare-faced to stay on-trend, you can just practise non-touring. Instead of thick foundations and heavy layers of makeup, swap to lighter BB creams and take a softer approach when applying blusher and mascara.
It’s all about embroidery
New season fashion is currently flooding the high street, and the one trend you absolutely cannot miss is the 90s-embroidery throwback.
Jeans, biker jackets, shirts, boots, jumpers, skirts – if it’s made of fabric, then it’s no doubt already been embroidered with colourful flowers and feminist slogans.
Get crafty and you won’t have to splurge on expensive pre-decorated denim. To update your old favourites, all you need is an embroidery hoop, a decent needle and a healthy scattering of patience.
With our quick, cheap and easy style change-ups, you’ll be able to rock a whole new look without gutting your entire wardrobe!
