New Year, New Look? Now's The Time To Start Experimenting!

The birth of Christ is the starting point of the Christian character, but he was actually born several years before the start of the Christian calendar, and he wasn’t born on the 25th December either. The Christmas celebration is one of many pagan holidays co-opted by the early church; the winter solstice. The winter solstice is traditionally a time of rebirth, regrowth  and renewal which explains why so many of us feel the need to reinvent ourselves as the year draws to a close. If you’re thinking of reinventing yourself and your look in the new year, now’s the time to start experimenting.


If you’ve become bored and frustrated by the limitations of your current look and yearn to reinvent yourself, but don’t want any nasty surprises the trick is not to make drastic changes before you are ready for them. For many starting small and building up to the big stuff can make for a more seamless and less jarring transition. With that in mind, if you start experimenting now, you’ll be well placed to emerge at all the right New Year’s Eve parties like a butterfly emerging from her chrysalis!

Finding inspiration

Don’t let a yearning for change push you into any hasty decision making. Make sure that you have a clear endgame before you commit to change. Scour Pinterest for inspiration, borrowing from celebrity styles and emerging trends as you see fit. When you have a clear goal in mind, change can be far less jarring.

Your jewellery

Changing the jewellery you wear is a low risk way to affect change. Check out www. Adinasjewels.com and find yourself some inspiration. The great thing about jewellery is that you can draw as much or as little attention to it as you like with your clothing choices. If it’s working for you, put it front and centre. If you’re not quite ready for it yet, let it take a back seat.

Your makeup

Makeup is a wonderful way to reinvent your look, and with so many great tutorial videos available on Youtube you have plenty of time to experiment with and perfect different looks before wearing them in public. You can start off with little subtle changes in style and color then build up to more dramatic changes as you grow in your confidence and ability.

Shoes, clothes and accessories

Whenever you go shopping for clothes, accessories and shoes, you should always choose one item that scares you a little. You’ll find that the items you were reticent about at first get more wear over time than the safe choices. When you want to reinvent your look, it’s simply a matter of making more scary choices and using your safe choices as a buffer.

And finally... the hair!

Now that you’ve laid a solid foundation for change, you’re ready to start experimenting with different hair looks. Because your hair is such a vital part of your self-image this should be the last thing that you change. However, by the time you reach this point you will now have prepared yourself psychologically for this and you’ll be able to enjoy your transformation without fear or regret.
