Expressing Your Individuality When Wearing A Uniform

Expressing Your Individuality When Wearing A Uniform

Unfortunately, uniforms are a thing. Whether you’re attending a prestigious school, working a retail job or taking part in any other activity that requires you to wear a uniform, you’ll know just how constricting and quite frankly unfashionable it can be. Blending in with the crowd might be alright for some, but expressing individuality and style is a regular thought for many people who feel confined by their uniform. Luckily, learning how to express yourself without ditching the uniform altogether needn’t be as difficult as you might think, as there are a few key tips and tricks that you can utilise today which can help you dress to impress no matter what the code. So, if you would like to find out more, then read on to uncover some of the best ideas that you can implement now! 


Hair & Makeup 

The easiest place to begin when trying to express yourself without changing your uniform is your hair and makeup. There’s so much scope for a seemingly endless variety of hairstyles and makeup looks, so it’s the perfect opportunity to show off your unique image! If your job requires that you wear your hair tied up, then don’t just go for a simple ponytail - add texture using curlers and use a cute scrunchie to hold it in place. Mastering basic makeup skills is fairly easy after a few video tutorials and a little practice, so don’t be afraid to start learning if you’ve never experimented before. From sleek winged liner to mysterious smoky shadow, luxurious red lipstick and the perfect pink blush, there’s an endless supply of makeup materials that you can indulge in to create your ideal end look! 

Piercings & Accessories 

Depending on the working environment you operate in, piercings and accessories may be an option. Piercings are a big commitment to consider before getting, and you must search around for the most trusted studio to complete your piercing, but it’s a great style choice should you make such a decision! From nose rings to ear piercing, there are many different options for you to explore - each good piercing shop should stock a plethora of colours, shapes and styles, so take a good look around before making your final choice. Accessories mainly focus around jewellery, with things like necklaces, rings and watches able to totally transform your look. Investing in a statement jewellery set which matches well with your personal style can upgrade your uniform to a whole new level, and it’s bound to catch the eyes of every customer who walks through the doors. 

Expressing your individuality when wearing a uniform has never been so simple when you are able to make the most of the top tips and tricks that have been detailed above! Don’t let your uniform dampen your style, utilise these steps to ensure you can represent yourself no matter what clothes you have to wear. Start by focusing on your hair and makeup, and be sure to utilise piercings and other accessories to add more flavour!
