Once you have direction on looks you feel comfortable with then you can step things up a notch. Never try to change your overall look in one go.

If you get the opportunity, wear your new look while going out shopping by yourself. Walk the city streets, enjoy a coffee in a café and see if you feel comfortable in your choice of clothing before introducing your new look to your friends.
You may even pick up a few compliments on the way. Staying on the same subject, get advice from non-judgmental shop assistants or a personal stylist who don’t know your normal look.
