When it comes to fashion we all have our own individual comfort zone. Some people feel at home in patterned jumpsuits and statement heels, others feel dressed up in anything other than jeans and a t-shirt. And as long as your comfort zone matches your style, everything is A-ok. Because it doesn't matter if you don't feel comfortable in crop tops if they aren't your style anyway.
The trouble is when your comfort zone is keeping you from fully expressing your personal style. When you would love to wear a maxi dress, a specific colour, or platform heels, but are too self-conscious to give it a try. When you think - I would love to be able to pull that off, but I know I would just look silly?
That's when your comfort zone is getting in the way between you and great style.
The fix: Instead of letting your comfort zone determine what you wear, work towards expanding it, until it covers the full spectrum of colours, silhouettes and looks you love.
Think of your comfort zone as a muscle. You can train yourself to become more confident when it comes to fashion, by gradually upping the ante. The trick is to really ease into it and set the bar low at the beginning.
