Sipping coffee, listening to ‘Mere Sayyain ji se aaj maine break-up kar liya’ and working on this exciting fashion post….
As I write this, it is all backed by personal experiences. Break up and heart breaks are traumatic. You are left shattered and feel as if it is the end of the world. But darling, you need to move on. Sooner or later, with or without a couple of shots.
Fashion is such a personal thing, and taking a fashionable way out of a break-up is an interesting idea.
Read on to find 7 ways to fashionably bounce back after a break-up.
1.Don’t live in your pajamas
I know living in pajamas is the ultimate luxury, especially after a breakup. But you have to step out of your pajamas and step out in the world. Cry your heart out, build a bridge over the tears, cross it and move on.
Dress up in your favorite denims or that little black dress and go meet your friends. It would do a lot of good to your heart. Or how about catching up with bestie over coffee and gossiping till contentment!
2. Get a haircut
Letting it go is the best way to heal your heart after a break up. And what better way than letting all that excess baggage off your head.
Ask for a trendy haircut, something out of your comfort zone. For the ones who are even more daring, you could even color your hair. Happy hair days are always the best. And with the new hair cut you’ll feel happier!
3. Switch to heels
Killer heels and their charm.
When you step into heels you transform yourself. A simple outfit looks classy when paired with heels. Also one exuberates the boldness and confidence that can never be matched to flats.
There are high chances that you give in to temptation and make a wrong choice with the heels. Don’t do that. Be a smart shopper. Pick a neutral color that can go with a lot of your outfits, and a style that you’re comfortable in. Although stilettos would heel your heart, I don’t want you to twist your foot. So buy a high pair of heels that you’re comfortable in.
4. Experiment with your style
A break up gives you amazing life lessons. Not all those we lose are a loss. It also gives you an opportunity to revamp your style.
If you’re someone who doesn’t like wearing traditional Indian wear, try with something light or an indo-western look. Make your way into the boho world and give it a go. Or try the cool high waist pants that you were so skeptical about.
Experimenting gives you a fresh perspective, and then you never know what might become your new favorite.
5. Trust the power of red lipstick
This is my favorite of the lot – Red Lipstick. If you’re someone who has always shied away from the gorgeous red lipstick, then now is the time to take the plunge. There is a perfect red for every skin tone.
There is something in the color red. It makes you feel alive, more confident, and gets those #bosslady vibes on point. One stroke and you’d feel a lot better.
You could start with a coral red and then gravitate towards charismatic deeper reds. Always remember to use a lip liner if you don’t want your red lipstick going all over your face!
6. Oversized pullovers get a big YES
If that douche bag has left you, and you’re craving some cuddles then an oversized pullover or a hoodie will set you in the mood. Ideal to dress up casually yet have that chilled out feel.
Oversized pullovers are an epitome of comfort and style. Wear them with skinny jeans or slouchy track pants and you’ll make an effortless chic style statement.
P.S – Also if you’ve binged on Nutella or ice-cream to get over your break up, oversized pullovers are perfect to hide that tummy fat and extra kilos (Just until you get your dream summer body back).
7. Indulge in expensive lingerie
Some of you might find this overrated, but when you buy beautiful lingerie, you get that ultimate satisfaction. Comment down below if you have similar feelings.
Indulge in sexy expensive lingerie after a break up. Those whimsy lacy ones or a smokin’ lingerie set, it will uplift your mood. When you wear good lingerie, your clothes fit well and you feel so much better.
