5 Style Tips To Stand Out Among Your Peers

5 Style Tips To Stand Out Among Your Peers

The desire to be noticed by peers is a natural human tendency. Your style – the way you dress up, the way you carry yourself out, the trends you follow- plays a key role in helping you stand out in a crowd of faces. Also, it tells a lot of things about your personality.

Simply following the overused fashion trends or wearing expensive clothes will not help you get a distinct style. However, a few simple, yet effective, tips can help you get your mojo.

Here are 5 style tips that will make you stand out among your peers.

1. Be yourself.

Why be a second-rate version of anybody else when you can be the first rate version of yourself? Nothing will help you stand out of the crowd more than your originality and authenticity because there can be only one you. Everyone has their own belief, way of thinking, mind-set and experiences that shape his style.

However, self-doubt and fear of disapproval drive many to abandon their ways and follow what everyone else is doing. Imitating others will make you just another face in a crowd. Break free from the conformist approach to fashion and let your style reflect your individuality.

2. Be bold.

If you want to express your personality through fashion, you will have to be fearless. When you try something different, at first, you will have to overcome your fears of rejection. Then, you have to face people who do not approve of your fashion sense.

Let’s face it; you can’t please everyone. The way you dress, the way you carry yourself will rub some people the wrong way. People have a habit of criticizing what they do not understand. Do not let the naysayers determine your style. You can and should have your own style. In fact, explore and experiment with different styles that may be completely non-conventional to find something that you prefer.

3. Keep an open mind.

Open-mindedness help you see things from a different perspective, understand others, find opportunities, and learn from others. The benefits of having an open mind can be very helpful in defining your style. There are several styles that you should explore and determine what suits your personality.

Who knows, you may be a goth or punk or any other alternative fashion enthusiast, yet to discover your true calling. Even if you are not awed by a particular style, you can always draw inspirations from it to incorporate into your own style.

4. Keep up with recent trends.

Fashion is forever evolving. What worked yesterday, may not work today. Take the bell bottom trousers for example – a highly sought after apparel at its pinnacle in the 60s and 70s, hardly anyone wears them nowadays. As society changes, so does fashion.

Changing trends reflect the changes in people’s taste. Similarly, your sense of fashion changes as you garner more experience in life. Keeping track of the latest trends will help you redefine your style. While it is not absolutely necessary to follow every new trend, which is impossible, you can emulate the ones that you like.

5. Wear your confidence.

Your attitude when wearing an attire can make a significant difference on how you look. You can wear a very beautiful dress, but if you can’t carry it with confidence, it will not look good on you. On the other hand, even an average dress looks fabulous on people who wear it confidently.

Just look at Lady Gaga. Her dresses may be very weird, but she wears them with such self-assuredness that people are in awe of her. In contrast, picture a girl uncomfortably wearing high heels. Her awkward strides will only draw winces from people seeing her. The role of confidence on your personality can’t be overstated. If you are unsure about your outfit, do not wear it.

Do not wear an uncomfortable dress just because everyone is wearing it or because it really suits your friend. Similarly, when you don an attire, trust yourself and wear it confidently. Remember, it is okay to have your own style as long as you are confident with it.

10 Reasons Why You Should Get Naked More Often

10 Reasons Why You Should Get Naked More Often

Getting naked is often thought of as an act that should only be reserved for intimacy—and even then some get squirmy! Many people are more comfortable believing that the more clothes you are wearing the better. However, getting naked more often can have great benefits for you. Here are 10 great reasons to get naked more often:

1. It burns more fat.

Your body’s main supply of brown adipose tissue (BAT), or good fat cells, are located around your shoulder blades and neck. When your body is exposed to the elements and is cooler, the BAT proliferates and essentially kills the white adipose tissue, aka bad fat cells. So, not wearing any clothes helps promote this and makes you healthier.

2. You’ll become comfortable with who you are.

Self-acceptance is hard to come by today. Ask anyone you know and see if they are happy with themselves. Chances are they will say they are too fat, not pretty, and find all of the flaws that they can. In reality, others do not see this. They see that you are beautiful. When you begin to get naked, you learn to appreciate your body and realize how beautiful you really are.

3. It saves you money.

Being naked more often saves on buying new clothing since you are wearing nothing a lot of the time. Be careful when you are in public, though—you may have to put on some clothes!

4. It increases your immune system.

Being naked and getting exposure to the sun’s rays actually increases your body’s vitamin D levels. Vitamin D is directly related to your immune system. When you have optimal levels of vitamin D, your body’s immune system is impeccable, and you will be better equipped to ward off viruses, including the common cold and flu. So go lay outside naked on your private balcony or in your yard.

5. It makes you face your fears head on.

People cringe today when you mention the words “get naked.” They are so afraid of it—and today’s children are so ingrained with this—that they must wear layer upon layer to deal with their body image. However, when you are naked, you face your fears of body image and self-acceptance, experiencing some of the best moments of your life.

6. You will feel better in your clothes.

When you do wear clothes (because not everyone has yet accepted being naked in public), you will start to choose clothing that accentuates the parts of your body that you love. You will begin to notice that maybe that muumuu does not flatter your beautiful curves and start wearing clothes that you love.

7. You will embrace vulnerability.

When you put yourself out there, it is a natural reaction to have fear and worry. However, this is an opportunity to embrace being vulnerable. It allows you to think and get down to the core of what really matters and what is of importance to you. When you strip away all of the excess, you are 100% you and willing to take on anything that comes your way.

8. You will show the world the real you.

Today, we have many ways of altering our appearance from our true body image when we wear clothing. Some people alter their image so much that they fear getting naked with the person they love. It seems crazy that this could even happen; however, the rise in use of breast-enhancing bras and Spanx products has put this idea into people’s minds. This all goes back to being comfortable with your true body image. If a person really does love you, then they should not love you based upon your image. If they do, then you may even decide that the ever-so-uncomfortable leggings that go up above your waist to hold in all of the imperfections may not be worth it after all.

9. You will have fun.

Well, this could go in all sorts of directions. But when you are comfortable with your naked body and see it as being flattering, then life is more fun. You start realizing that you are beautiful and are willing to do more things that you probably would not have done otherwise—with and without your clothes on.

10. You can have intercourse with the lights on.

Many people are self-conscious about the way they look and decide that the less lighting the better when they are intimate with their partner. It’s nothing new. If you survey your best friends, you will probably come to this conclusion too. They may say that it even gets awkward, because they are more concerned with what their partner thinks of their body than just having and enjoying amazing intercourse. When you love the way you look naked, you will also want to have your partner see you at your best.

What are you waiting for? Start spending more time in the buff today and begin to change the way you think about your body.
