This episode is a part of our Blog-vember 2019 trifecta of three posts a day—a video, a podcast, and a blog post. This year the focus is tips for the D.I.Y. Rock Star. We developed these methods through our own decades worth of experiences.

Take into account these tips for D.I.Y. Rock Star Flavor in your dressing:

The BIG Take-Aways:

Our goal is to exude D.I.Y. Rock Star in every facet of our lives, so for a while that translated into wearing all-black—from head to toe—all the time. I thought that looked cool and could communicate that something EXTRA no matter what type of clothing you’re wearing, including workout gear, loungewear, or heading out for the evening gear.

We like to express ourselves, whenever given the opportunity and what we wear is the ongoing opportunity to do so. There are ways to express yourself, even if you work in a more conventional, conservative environment. You might add in jewelry, shoes, hairstyle, glasses, or in your color choices, or facial hair. These are ways to allow your creativity to flow even if it is in subtle ways. Don’t stifle your creativity completely just to meet the demands of a job; figure out how to make them both work together.

On the other hand, be sure to look for opportunities to go all out in your wardrobe expression when you are not needing to dance to someone else’s tune, so to speak.
