Go on Instagram, Tumblr, we heart it or any other app/site that you find useful and search for some fashion images that you love. You can also browse in some magazines or fashion books. These days you can find inspiration everywhere.
Step 2. CLEAN OUT
Another thing that is rather important is clearing and cleaning out your wardrobe. Go through your wardrobe one day and throw out everything you do not like anymore or that you will never wear. (If you have clothes that you want to get rid of, bring them to a charity shop or something. Who knows, someone might be very happy with your old clothes.) After you have had a massive clear out, write down all the things that you need to buy and make a list of aal the things you would love to purchase in the upcoming months.

LOVE YOURSELF!! Do not be insecure if you do not have the perfect size or do not live up to the so-called ‘perfect’ beauty standards. Everyone is beautiful in their own way. It is vital to embrace yourself while developing your own fashion sense. If you love yourself and embrace all that is you, you will be confident enough to wear the clothes you want to wear.

You do not want to feel trapped in boring clothes that you actually do not want to wear. So be bold and wear everything that you love.
