Three Items You can Personalize for a Unique Outfit
When it comes to fashion in this day and age, it seems the trend is to no longer follow a trend. On the contrary, what matters most is one’s personality, and the unique manner in which one chooses to express it. Like with anything pertaining to personal expression, there are multiple ways in which you can choose to reveal yourself to the world for whom you actually are and for what you genuinely stand. Depending on the sub-cultural niche you most closely identify with, there are also various ways in which you can customize or personalize items making up your outfit, so that you will always stand out from the crowd in a positive fashion. If you are into handicrafts, do-it-yourself or simply seeking inspiration on manners in which you can alter your clothes so that they best reflect your true colors, read on for three tips on what to customize. Just remember that customized items usually shouldn’t be matched. There is such a thing as displaying too much personality all at once. Other than that, feel free to explore your creativity and the wonderful world of self-expression.
Bags and Totes
How do you like your bags? We like ours large, so we can fit all our necessities inside, either worn across the body or on one shoulder and, of course, personalized. When stumped for customization ideas, know that canvas bags are probably one of your best and safest bets. For one thing, bags are always useful and you can never have too many. Have a bag prepared for hauling around your courses, a larger one inside which you can fit your laptop, and yet another one, which you can simply call ‘the shopper’, for your weekly groceries and other useful purchases. Bags made out of textile fabrics can be adorned with trinkets and buttons, and they can also be personalized with a custom-designed pattern or phrase.
Tee shirts have been in use for personalization purposes ever since the days of the hippies. This subculture brought us tie-dye, which is easy to apply and yields fun, organic and vibrant swirls and loops of colors. All you need is some good dye (alternatively, you can learn to make your own from all natural ingredients) and the know-how on how to go about the process. The process itself is not complicated at all. Simply tie your shirt of choice into knots, bind it with elastic bands and let it soak in the dye. Repeat the soaking, depending on what you want your final pattern to look like and how intense you want your colors to be, then leave it out to dry. Another alteration that works well with tee shirts, involves hand ripping them, then pinning them back with safety pins, for a genuine punk look. Just make sure you don’t tear too much into the shirt, or you’ll end up looking rather more undressed than clothed.
Flat ballerina shoes in textile fabrics can also benefit from your very own personal touch. Do you have brooches, buttons or other knickknacks around the house that you no longer use? What happen to that beaded necklace your little niece broke a while ago? Sew the beads onto your shoes and make sure the left one is different from the right one. You’ll end up looking effortlessly chic, unique and funky. Besides, ballerina flats are ideal for the warm season, as well as easy to match with nearly all casual outfits.
