Dear Bieber Heiress,
I’m going into high school next year, and I’ve always been shy and reserved, but I really want to break out of my shell and make new friends next year. I’ve always kept to myself, not because I really wanted to, but because I was uncomfortable putting myself out there, mainly because of insecurity? I just don’t want to miss out on the best years and so I was wondering what your advice would be to help me change that? I really want high school to be different.
We agree that reinventing yourself sounds like a great idea for high school! You can branch out and make new types of friends that you didn’t have before! A good way to reinvent yourself is through style! Redo your wardrobe and find clothes that fit your body type well and flatter your complexion, and you have to think they’re cute too! If you love what you’re wearing, your confidence will be through the roof! Getting a new haircut, or some hi-lites or low-lites are never a bad idea either! The best thing about style and fashion is that you can change it constantly, and use it to express every stage in your life! We recommend picking up (or subscribing) to magazines like Teen Vogue or Seventeen Magazine in order to look at the models and clothes featured, and get a sense for your taste! Are you trendy, classy, preppy, or outlandish and daring? The good thing about those magazines are that since they’re catered to teenage girls, they feature girls of all shapes in sizes in the style portions! If you’re tall and thin, really curvy, or anywhere in between you can find good style ideas!
Make sure you pick up versatile pieces that you can mix up with multiple outfits, although it’s good to get some outfit specific clothes as well! Also, don’t worry if you need to shop on a budget! While $300 jeans are great, it’s understandable that everyone can’t afford them! If you see a pair in the magazines that you really like, shop around at stores like JcPennys, Kohls, and Macy’s to find similar jeans at a price you can afford! A good pair of jeans go a long way, so make sure you have a couple! Whether they’re from Target, Macy’s, or designed by Seven For All Mankind make sure they fit well! Happy shopping, we hope this helped!
