Spring is here, and with it comes the perfect opportunity to not only declutter our physical spaces but also to refresh our personal style. However, this year, let's approach spring cleaning with a twist. Instead of focusing solely on what's flattering on our bodies, let's embrace a body-positive mindset and explore styles that speak to our individuality and creativity. Here, 7 ways to reinvent your personal style without worrying about conventional notions of what looks good on your body.

1. Embrace Your Body, Embrace Yourself

The first step to reinventing your personal style is to embrace your body just as it is. Your body is unique, beautiful, and worthy of love and appreciation right now. Whether you're curvy, petite, tall or somewhere in between, there are no rules dictating what you should or shouldn't wear. Instead of focusing on hiding perceived flaws, celebrate your body for all that it is. Remember, confidence is the best accessory you can wear.

Body positivity is about more than just accepting your physical appearance; it's about embracing your whole self — mind, body and spirit. When you view your body through a lens of love and acceptance, it becomes easier to express yourself authentically through your personal style. So, stand tall, wear what makes you feel amazing and let your unique beauty shine through.

2. Let Go of Limiting Beliefs

Spring cleaning isn't just about clearing out your closet; it's also about clearing out any limiting beliefs you may have about your personal style. Let go of the notion that certain styles or trends are off-limits based on your body type. Fashion is meant to be fun, expressive, and inclusive of all shapes and sizes. Challenge yourself to try on that bold print, daring silhouette or vibrant colour you've always been drawn to but felt hesitant to wear. You might be surprised at how empowering it feels to step outside your comfort zone.

It's essential to recognize that beauty comes in all shapes, sizes and forms. What matters most is how you feel when you wear a particular outfit — not how it conforms to societal standards of beauty. By releasing yourself from the constraints of conventional fashion norms, you open yourself up to a world of possibilities where self-expression knows no bounds.


3. Focus on Feel-Good Fabrics

When revamping your wardrobe, prioritize comfort and feel-good fabrics over rigid notions of what's considered flattering. Soft, breathable materials like cotton, linen and bamboo can not only keep you comfortable but also enhance your confidence and self-expression. Pay attention to how different fabrics make you feel when you wear them. Opt for pieces that make you feel confident, empowered, and comfortable in your own skin. Our shorties and crops come in a variety of materials that appeal to any personal taste, like our bestselling Cooling fabric that feels buttery-soft against the skin or our ultra-cozy Cotton shorties perfect for lounging and sleeping.

Comfort should always be a top priority when it comes to fashion. When you feel physically comfortable in what you're wearing, it allows you to move through the world with ease and grace. So, choose fabrics that feel soft against your skin, allow for freedom of movement and make you feel like the best version of yourself. Our biggest tip when it comes to body freedom is protecting yourself against inner thigh chafing with our undershorts, which can totally make or break a beautiful day. Layer up or pop them in your bag on a day out for when you need them in a pinch.

4. Experiment with Silhouettes

Don't be afraid to experiment with different silhouettes and styles until you find what resonates with you. Whether you prefer flowy dresses, tailored blazers, oversized sweaters or fitted jeans, there's no right or wrong way to express your personal style. Mix and match different pieces to create unique and unexpected combinations that reflect your personality and mood. Style is about self-expression, not adherence to rigid fashion rules.

Exploring different silhouettes can be a fun and creative way to express your personal style. You might discover that a silhouette you never considered before actually complements your body in ways you hadn't imagined. So, don't be afraid to step outside your comfort zone and experiment with new shapes and styles. You might just find your new fashion obsession in the process.

5. Accessorize with Confidence

Accessories are the finishing touch that can elevate any outfit and add a personal flair to your style. From statement jewelry and bold scarves to funky hats and colourful handbags, accessories offer endless opportunities for creativity and self-expression. Experiment with different accessories to see how they can transform your look and reflect your individuality. And remember, the most important accessory you can wear is confidence. Hot tip: Layer a pair of our shorties in a fun hue under a dress, skirt or romper for an added pop of colour.

Accessories are a powerful tool for self-expression, allowing you to infuse your personality into any outfit. Whether you prefer minimalist jewelry or bold statement pieces, the key is to wear accessories that make you feel confident and authentic. Don't be afraid to experiment with different accessories and find what works best for you.

6. Find Inspiration Everywhere

When reinventing your personal style, don't limit yourself to traditional sources of inspiration. Look beyond fashion magazines and runway shows and seek inspiration from everyday life. Take cues from art, nature, music, travel and culture to infuse your style with depth and meaning. Curate your Instagram feed and TikTok For You Page with people who look like you and whose style you admire. Keep an open mind and be willing to explore new ideas and aesthetics that resonate with you on a personal level. 

True style is about more than just following trends; it's about expressing your unique personality and interests through what you wear. By drawing inspiration from a variety of sources, you can create a style that feels authentic and meaningful to you. So, keep your eyes open and allow yourself to be inspired by the world around you.

7. Community and Support

Building a supportive community can be instrumental in cultivating a positive body image and embracing your personal style with confidence. Surround yourself with friends, family and online communities that celebrate diversity and individuality. Share your style journey, seek advice and encouragement, and inspire others to embrace their uniqueness. 

As you start out on your spring cleaning journey this year, remember that reinventing your personal style is about more than just updating your wardrobe —it's about embracing your body, expressing your individuality and celebrating your unique beauty. Let go of limiting beliefs, experiment with different styles and accessorize with confidence. Find inspiration everywhere and build a supportive community that uplifts and empowers you. Above all, remember that true style comes from within, and when you embrace who you are, you shine brightly in any outfit you wear. Happy spring cleaning and style reinvention!
