How to reinvent your look

When it comes to the clothes we wear, many of us are creatures of habit. We all tend to have certain styles, colours, and fits that we are drawn to when shopping for new clothes. But there will be times in your life when you crave a change, and one of the most impactful ways to deliver a transformation is by reinventing your look. Making some changes in the wardrobe department can help you out of a fashion rut and update your appearance to something new and fresh.

Embracing a new style doesn’t just mean wearing new clothes, it can also offer you a sense of empowerment and self-expression and transform your confidence. But reinventing your wardrobe may seem like a challenge if you’ve always dressed a certain way. So why not leave it in the hands of the experts? Here at NADINE MERABI, we have put together everything you need about how to reinvent your look, including where to start and what must-have fashion items you’ll need to purchase. Say hello to the new you!


Look what you have in your wardrobe

In order to reinvent your look you should start by having a look at what you currently have in your wardrobe. Have a look at the items you have, those that you love, and those clothes that you’re no longer that keen on. It’s normal for your fashion choices to change and adapt as you get older, so you may look at current clothing items you own and not associate them with your desired image.

Once you’ve had a look at the clothing items you do and don’t like, you’ll have an idea of what items are missing and the sort of outfits you can create. You should also take into consideration the type of body shape, personal preferences, and lifestyle that you have. For example, if you often go to the gym and enjoy exercising then you should have plenty of gym outfits to choose from!


Experiment with different styles

Once you have an idea of what your current style is and what kind of aesthetic you’re trying to achieve by reinventing your look you can start to experiment with different options. Now, don’t make the mistake of thinking that the first new style or trend that you try is going to be perfect. Because it probably isn’t.

When most of us are clothes shopping we tend to look at the same kind of styles and designs. But if you’re looking to reinvent your look then it may be time to branch out and try different things. If you’re the sort of person who usually lives in jeans and a T-shirt then this is the perfect opportunity for you to add some skirts or co ords.


Look for fashion inspiration

One of the most challenging things about reinventing your look is knowing what to change it to. While you may have an idea of the types of clothes you don’t want to wear, it can be more difficult to find clothes that you do.

So we recommend that you look online at the different types of inspiration available. From style blogs to social media influencers and celebrities whose style you admire. You could save some pictures on your phone of the types of styles and aesthetics you’d like to achieve as well as some colour palettes you think you’d suit.

If there is a particular event or occasion that you’re reinventing your look for then be sure to check out the NADINE MERABI website itself where we have outfits all ready for you for specific events. From race day to birthday party outfits, finding the perfect outfit for you has never been easier. On our website, you can also check out which of the celebs have been wearing our luxury fashion pieces recently!


Update your wardrobe

Now that you’ve assessed your current wardrobe situation and have some inspiration to help you with the style you want to achieve, it is time to update your wardrobe. You might start by thinking about some fashion staples that all wardrobes need. For example, when it comes to our favourite dresses, we think that everyone should own a little black dress, such as the MAYA Galaxy Dress.

There are some more fashion pieces you should invest in when reinventing your look. First of all, by decluttering the items that you no longer love, you can make room in your wardrobe for something new. Think about purchasing other staple pieces such as a versatile blazer and a well-fitting pair of jeans. Even if you aren’t completely sure what you’re going to do with them now, having them in your wardrobe will help you create your new look.

Don’t forget that you can also mix up some new and old pieces of clothing to create a whole new look.


Confidence is key

One of the biggest tips we have given you when it comes to how to reinvent your look is to remember that confidence is everything. While of course wearing clothes that look, fit and feel good is important, it also matters that you are confident in your own appearance. It’s not what you wear, it’s how you wear it.

Be sure to embrace the changes that you’re making to yourself, and believe in the new look you’re putting out there. Yes, sure you might feel a bit nervous about stepping out of your comfort zone at first, but embrace the new you!
