Dare To Wear Different! Do you wear the same outfits often? Do you have clothes that you love but don’t wear because they are out of your comfort zone? You are not the only one. Most of us at one time or another buy clothes we like and then don’t wear them because they are different or out of our comfort zone. Well, why did we buy them???
You probably don’t even have to go out shopping, just look in your closet. I have two maxi dresses that I bought last year. I have never worn either. I have tried them on several times and just don’t fill right in them. It’s because I haven’t worn a maxi before (yeah I know… What!!!). So, I guess I have to practice what I preach and Dare To Wear Different.
I will have to say, I did buy two new outfits that were out of my comfort zone. One is the jumpsuit below. I found it at a little boutique in Worthington Ohio, ModeAlise. A friend of mine told me about this very cool boutique, I’m in love! I have decided that I’m not going to shop as much but when I do I will buy something special – something fun.

I love the big oversized pockets in this jumpsuit. Also, it’s loose so if I’m having a bloated kinda day it hides a lot.
I like the pop of color on the back. What color of bag would you carry?
Tips for “Dare To Wear Different”
Start in your closet
Look for pieces you can put together that you haven’t worn together, yet. Look on Pinterest or other style blogs to get inspiration, find something close put it on, and take photos.
Get a few key garments
Buy or look in your closet, for one pair of fun pants. Then try on sweaters, blouses, jacket, dresses, what ever you have and take more photos. Share them on our Facebook page.
Take one step at a time
Don’t try to change everything at once. Start with one thing that’s different for you and maybe later add something else. For example, start with that fun pair of pants and later add a cool hat.
- Go for dramatic proportions, mix long and short.
- Wear boots a new way, maybe booties with a dress, or over the knee boots.
- Wear a hat, big or small, sporty or not.
- Wear a color you don’t ever wear. Mine would be red, not sure why.
- Try a new trend.
- Wear statement accessories.
Remember out of your comfort zone might be totally in someone else’s zone. Most people will not notice that you are wearing something different. They will just notice how stylish you are. Make sure you feel good in what ever it is you wear, stand up tall and show them you have style! When I put the jumpsuit on I was OK, I like it, I feel good in it, now where do I wear it?
I have worn it two times already!!!
