How To Switch Up Your Style Aesthetic

From time to time, our wardrobe just gets plain tired, we’ve all been there!

The key is not to overreact and start throwing your once-loved wardrobe out. Take a chill pill and read through some tips on how you can turn your current wardrobe by just adding a few new pieces to shape your personal style aesthetic in 2021 and not break the bank.

Firstly, start by placing the items of your wardrobe on your bed.

Set aside the items you wear regularly. Then, set aside the items you haven’t worn for 6 months or a season. These items should form part of the  donate pile, doing something good for others already dresses you with a smile. Once done, the remaining items give you sense of your current style personal style and reveal the wardrobe loopholes and where to improve going forward.

Now that we’ve got that on lock, it’s time to research fashionistas that have the same sense of style and have a similar to your own.

Research Pinterest, Fashion Blogs and Instagram to see how these fashionistas style their outfits. This will not only inspire you, but save you time in figuring out ways to style your outfits. Keep looks for seasons in mind, that way you have a clear vision for your personal aesthetic from summer to winter.

To inspire you further, we’ve selected some product from our stores to help you rack, stack and pack your soon to be new and improved wardrobe:

Dad Jeans

If you have been trying to figure ways of how to style that throwback pair of jeans, don’t worry, we got you. To pull off this look, ensure you fold up the bottom of your jeans to show ankles, add a pair of adidas trefoil socks to accessorise the look. To add further edge to your look, rock a pair of iconic retro chunky adidas Niteball kicks – this to break the washed denim look.


We tend to throw out, clean the garden or fix the car in our old t-shirts but those t-shirts have character and can be a feature to the look you are going for so why not resurrect them? Dark coloured t-shirts match well with SikSilk Distressed Skinny Jeans, add a pair of Vans Classic Slip Checkboard canvas shoes and accessorise the look with an adidas Bucket Hat.


You can still add that structured blazer jacket to your aesthetic look by pairing it with a Puma BMW M Motorsport Graphic T-Shirt, SikSilk Elastic Waist Skinny Distressed Denim and a pair of Superga 2750 Cotu Classic canvas shoes. That’s a serious down-up, up-down look!

We hope you feel inspired and the article will help you to reinvent and maintain your look with ease. When you get time pay us a visit at Side Step and let’s talk all things style and fashion #MyStyleIsReal
