Over the past few months, like many others, I haven’t had the motivation to dress up. My favorite outfits are mostly loungewear, pajamas, and occasionally a house dress to cheer me up. While a majority of my fashion purchases late were basic, I had a sudden urge to spice things up, and after a quick Instagram scroll (okay, and TikTok) it seems that I am not the only one. More than ever, I see funky girlish accessories, loud prints AND opposing colors just for no one else than themselves (and maybe their Instagram feed.) Instead of waiting for an opportunity to release my best pieces, I decide the only good opportunity is now. Plus, it only takes one wellness outfit to rekindle your love of fashion –something that I think we could all benefit from right now.
“Main character energy” is a definition I give to clothes that, when worn, cause people to turn to look at you as soon as you walk into the room. When I find a piece that exudes that kind of aesthetic, I imagine myself as the new girl in a coming-of-age movie – the one who moves to a small town from a big city and immediately stands out. (Think Lindsay Lohan in Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen: These adjustments were unmatched.)
I love a good basic, but there’s nothing like a unique fashion item to give you confidence. If you are in the market to add some fun to your wardrobe, you’ve come to the right place. From tie-dye sneakers to fuzzy tops, all of the items below are guaranteed to get you out of your style rut and in the role you were always born to play – the main character.
