5 Easy Ways To Get Standout Style

Updated on July 10, 2011

1 Embrace unique colors.

Anytime you’re shopping and see a shirt in a color you rarely see, pick it up please. Unique shades are a great way to stand apart. Every once in awhile, my go-to stores like Gap and Limited will offer a shirt in a unique dye. I always add new shades to my wardrobe. For one, you may look good in unique colors beyond basic black, red, white, etc. Two, people are drawn to shades they don’t see every day.

2 Flaunt funky nails

Mix up your normal nail scheme. As stated above, people are drawn to new and fun shades. Try out neutrals like brown and gray for your nails. Or, go for pastels like mint green and lilac. You may not love everything you try, but branching beyond the norm will give you that effortlessly funky flare. Consider even getting in on the current celebrity trend of painting one nail on each hand a different color than all the rest.

3 Statement jewelry

Nothing makes me think another girl is a diva like seeing her rock a statement necklace or gigantic earrings. Simplify the rest of your outfit (perhaps throw on a funky colored solid tank,) and pick out a chunky piece of jewelry to be your focus. Don’t go overboard. If you want to wear a big statement necklace piece, wear simple stud earrings. Or, if you elect to go big on earrings, pull your hair back and go for a bare neck.

4 Let your pants do the talking

Most girls that I know focus on shirts and tops when they shop. Why not mix up the pant choices? If you have a good foundation of simple, neutral tops, adding funky colored pants or unique cuts and styles, you will be considered daring and funky. When don’t you notice the girl wearing yellow pants?! It definitely commands attention.

5. Change up your hair routine

Surprise people by adding braids, fishtails, etc. to your norm. Yes, the occasional straight-hair is fresh, but do not go a week without adding something new to your do! Even bobby-pinning the bangs back can transform your look.
