4. Let the Sun Shine
Sun protection is one thing. But humongo, polar-white Bieber-esque sunglass frames?
We can hear you now. C’mon. Try the universally flattering allure of aviator sunglasses.
Their tan (usually), teardrop style subtly declares a sense of adventure while still
appealing to your conservative preferences. Thinking of the summer? (Who isn’t?!) Forge through the sea of Day-Glo bikinis and Rasta-inspired tanks and instead, accentuate your navy one-piece with a sunny yellow straw hat or a textured beach tote.
5. If You’ve Got It, Flaunt It!
You’ve heard it before: play up your favorite feature. It’s easier to feel more at ease with
certain trends when you use them to showcase a part of you that already makes you über
comfortable and confident. Say you love your long neck. Rather than just expose your
neck with your usual pony, add a small floral clip in that general area, or wear elegant
6. Be Bold (Without Telling a Soul!)
After all of this, if trying few bold accessories or wearing red pumps in public still
renders you uneasy, we still say: have no fear. Explore a trend or two . . . privately. Buy
that lime and fuchsia bra and wear it during that next meeting or Mother’s Day brunch.
Only you and your favorite solid chiffon blouse will know what you’re up to. Or, slip
into heels with leopard-print lining that only your footsies will see. Hmmm. Perhaps that
lime scarf isn’t far behind.
Sure, you may never choose to rock a metallic snakeskin clutch or strut your stuff in
three-inch wedges. But we’re confident that incorporating smaller aspects of otherwise
bigger trends will still keep you looking like your amazing self, while still allowing you to
stay well within your comfortably conservative fashion zone.
Heads will still turn.
And who knows . . . some of your choices may even make your beige hues a little green
