In a world of Kardashian wannabes and Bieber lookalikes, it can be difficult to craft a look that’s truly unique. Typical high school trends like Birkenstocks and yoga pants are on rotation, and one can start to feel a bit…well, basic. Luckily, there’s no need to fear the dreaded b-word, because Voyager’s got you covered with these simple tips on how to add a little flair to your closet.

Number One: Broaden your fashion horizons.

Drawing inspiration from a wide variety of sources has never been easier thanks to the swarm of social media outlets at our fingertips. Tools like Pinterest and Instagram offer a myriad of images to spark sartorial creativity. But don’t limit yourself to Kendall and Gigi! Check out off-the-wall street style, runway looks from fashion shows, and even trends from across the globe for maximum originality.

 

Number Two: Brainstorm outfits the night before.

Let’s be real for a second: a big reason that people don’t dress up for school is that it’s just too much work in the morning. You have to assemble all of the pieces, then you have to actually put on the pieces. It can be a taxing process. An easy alternative to scrambling for clothes in the morning is planning an outfit the night before. That way, when the morning rolls around you’ll be ready to stun everyone with your style!

 

Number Three: Shop outside your comfort zone

Don’t let yourself fall into a cycle of the same old stores. If you normally get your clothes from Forever 21, try browsing local boutiques or shops you haven’t tried around Geneva Commons. Thrift shops are another hotspot for kitschy pieces that no one else will be able to steal. Be adventurous when it comes to trying new pieces! You never know what looks good until you throw it on.

 

When compiling a wardrobe around your signature style, the most important fashion rule is to wear what makes you feel amazing. True fashion is not in following everybody else’s trends, but in starting your own.
