5. Don’t follow the latest trend.

Although it’s tempting to go and buy the next “hot item” that everyone’s wearing, this is only going to make your style blend in more. Ask yourself this: are you a leader or a follower? Stop following trends, and start setting them!

4. Change up your color palette.

Style is always changing. It’s okay to mix it up once in a while. Do you always wear neutral colors? Add in a neon pink or a royal blue. You might find out that more colors look good on you than you think!

 3. Don’t listen to anyone else’s opinion.

Do you think Kate Moss cared about what she wore? No, ma’am. She wore and did whatever she wanted, and it was her confidence that attracted us all to her style. You don’t need the fanciest clothes or the most expensive shoes. Just wear what makes you feel good, and you’ll look good.

2. Clean out your closet.

A lot of the time, it’s hard to be stylish when you can’t even find half of your clothes. Sometimes we have so much to wear that it’s hard to keep track of. It’s spring time, and yes, that means spring cleaning. Revamp your closet and get rid of that mini skirt you only wore once and then stuffed into the back of your drawers. Throw out those worn-out jeans that you’ve held on to for the past year and a half. I know it’s hard, but it’s time to say goodbye to your favorite party top. You know what they say, out with the old…

1. Be yourself.

If you keep trying to impress someone with your style or try to copy someone else’s look—you’ll end up miserable. The best way to stand out and make a name for yourself is to stay true to you. You’re in control of how fabulous you look and feel. Keep your head held high, sister, and strut your stuff like you own the place. You’ll be the style envy of every trend-follower in town.
