How to Upgrade Your Personal Style in a Bold Way

Everyone has their own personal style, but it can be easy to fall into a routine and get stuck in a rut when it comes to our fashion choices. However, there are always new ways of adding interest and spice to our everyday looks so we can stand out just a little bit more from the crowd with a stylish outfit. 

Have you been wondering what steps you can take to make a fashion statement no matter where you are or what you’re doing? This article has a few style tips that anyone can follow to make a statement outfit effortlessly year-round.

What is Your Personal Style Statement?

No matter what kind of fashion you like or where you are in the world, anyone can make a style statement. These tips will work for various styles and are simple but effective ways you can make a statement and make every outfit that much more stylish.

Wear Something Bold

If you feel like your outfit is a bit on the plainer side, why not add a statement piece and make it the star of your look? Whether it’s wearing an interesting handbag, some funky trainers, interestingly designed sunglasses, colourful prints, or a pop of bright blue, there are many articles of clothes that you can make stand out in your look.

Find New Ways to Wear Items

You don’t have to constantly buy new clothes to make a fashion statement. Most of the time, innovation comes from putting an unexpected twist on the items you already own and dress in all the time. 

The backward shirt trend is one example of a relaxed approach to taking a timeless and basic piece and finding a new way to wear it. Whether it’s wearing your shirt backwards or turning a skirt into a dress, you can make a statement and turn something trendy just by thinking a bit out of the box.

Mix Different Styles Together

People have a lot to say about clashing, but nowadays it’s definitely a fashionable move that will be the first thing to catch people’s eyes on the street. You can combine different styles and details in your clothing together to create a statement look, such as an edgy leather jacket with a dainty dress.

You can also experiment with different prints, patterns, textures, and silhouettes to create an interesting look and signature style such as pairing polka dots or plaid with a brightly coloured coat.

Wear a Red Lip

You’d be surprised how much your makeup can change the vibe of a look and turn it into a fashion statement. A bold red lip is one of the easiest ways you can draw attention to yourself and make your daily style stand out from the crowd. 

Even when you’re dressed simply in nude accessories or jeans and a t-shirt, a red lip could be the single detail to pair with your look and pull everything together.

Put an Unexpected Twist on Classics

People push many classic style tips on us, but because of this, we might all end up looking the same. So make a fashion statement by going in that direction, but putting a spin on it. 

Instead of a little black dress, opt for a little white dress, something that’s just as classic but not seen as often. Boyfriend jeans are another classic wardrobe staple that’s usually worn with slogan tees and baggy t-shirts, but you can easily add interest to the everyday pair by wearing them with more dainty, maybe even expensive, clothes.


Wearing the right accessories can do so much more for an outfit than you might think. Accessories are usually the last thing you put on to finish an outfit, and they can transform a look entirely. You can easily make a fashion statement when you match chunky jewels, sunglasses, or even a headscarf with an outfit you’d normally wear to the shops.

Leave Your Comfort Zone Behind

A lot of people are afraid of standing out, but to make a statement, you shouldn’t be afraid of taking risks. Fashion statements are all about confidence, and you can never do wrong if you feel happy in what you wear and express yourself with confidence. That is the thing people notice first when looking at someone, so wear your outfit with pride.

Final Note

One of the best things about fashion is how easily you can shape it to fit your personality and lifestyle, and everyone can take a small step every day to make their looks just a tad bit more eye-catching. After all, life is too short to be worried about what people think about your fashion, so go ahead and take a few risks.
