Fashion | Unconventional Festive Style


With Christmas fast approaching, you’ve probably already got a host of gatherings, meals and evenings out with friends, family and colleagues planned. But have you thought about what you’re going to wear to these events? If not, now’s the time for that to change.

For the best outcomes, you need to make sure you don’t get caught out by conventional choices. Doing this might seem difficult, but it’s easier than you think. Here are just some of the ways you can improve your style and still stand out this Christmas.

Take More Risks
First of all, you simply need to start taking more risks with your fashion decisions. By doing this, you’ll be able to ensure you don’t stick to conventional fashion decisions. Conventionality can be tempting because it’s the safe option that we all feel comfortable with, but taking risks can be pay off big time once you’ve got past the initial hurdle of daring to do it. Have confidence and do things you normally wouldn’t.

Ditch the High Street
High street stores are incredibly popular, and these are the places where everyone will be going to in order to buy the clothes they’re going to wear this season. That’s why you should break that trend and avoid the large high street fashion retailers because you want to avoid being too conventional. Instead, you should think about buying from small and independent places online.

Go Retro
Retro stores have a bounty of fashion items that you clearly won’t find in high street stores. These are perfect places for you to pick up the kinds of clothes that no one else will be wearing, allowing you to truly stand out and avoid blending into the crows. Have a look at the retro fashion stores and the second-hand stores in your area and see what you can find ahead of Christmas and New Year. You might be surprised by what pops up.

Choose Custom Items
There are some products that can be customised and personalised to meet your specific needs going forward. It’s something to consider if you don’t want to wear things that other people are going to be wearing too. There are custom earrings by Jaubalet that you can take advantage of. And that’s just one example of how you can make the most of custom items this Christmas.

Make Your Own Changes
You can also make your own changes to your clothes in order to differentiate them from what other people might be wearing at those parties and events over the holiday season. You could completely overhaul an old dress that you don’t really like and turn it into something you’d be more interested in wearing. If you have some basic sewing skills, this is pretty easy to do so give it a try.

If you stay too conventional this holiday season, you’ll blend into the background and look the same as everyone else; is that really what you want? If not, make the most of the tips outlined above.
