Every so often it’s easy to get bored and need a little variety in your look. There are a lot of things you can do to shake things up a bit. Some small and some more extreme. But there are always things that you need to be careful not to do when it comes time for a change. Read on to find out what they are.
Don’t just follow fashion
One of the biggest mistakes that people trying to change their look is that they just blindly follow whatever is in fashion. Of course, we all want to be on trend, but looking good has a little more to it than that.
You need to pick the styles that are in fashion that suit your body, and the colors that suit your complexion.
Petite ladies need to wear items that elongate their bodies like pencil dresses with high shoes. While taller girls to shop for clothes that are a good length. Apple shapes look great in empire line tunics. While pear shapes can go for a tighter top and with a pleated skirt which accentuates their shape in all the right places.

Don’t forget colors matter
Color is also important as our complexions dictate what will work with our skin tone. Pale skinned women with a pinkish tone to their completion look great in blues, pinks with a blue undertone and blue-greens. Warm toned skinned women can wear things with a matching orange undertone like olive, yellow and warm browns.
Just remember that If neon yellow is on trend, it might not be the best idea to replace every item in your wardrobe with that color. If you simply have to rock this season’s on-trend shade. But isn’t doing much for your complexion, try accessories like jewelry or handbags featuring the color instead.
Don’t discount permanent options
Another mistake people make is discounting permanent change options before they have considered them. Permanent procedures can have a huge impact and help you successfully complete a new look. Of course, they shouldn’t be taken lightly and should always be considered very carefully before going forward. This is because they do have some associated risks and complications.
Popular procedures for people trying to change their look include breast augmentation and facelifts. There are also things like liposuction available stubborn fatty deposits and permanent makeup too.
Don’t be afraid to try things out
Another mistake that people make when they are changing their look is that they think that they have to have it all perfect the first time round. This isn’t the case.
It is actually OK to practice a look that isn’t familiar to you. You don’t have to go out like that if you don’t want to. You can try things out in the comfort of your own home and then when you are comfortable take them out into the big wide world. Luckily there are lots of tutorials on Youtube to help you perfect even the most extreme look.
