It doesn't matter how smart, beautiful, or popular you may be, we all suffer from confidence.
Insecurities flood our day to day life, and a little armor could help all of us.
Here are my top 3 tips on boosting confidence through fashion!
1.) Have Pride:
Start by taking pride in how you represent yourself. Don't slouch, look at the floor, and hope your demure sweat suit will somehow allow you to blend into the wall, and remain invisible. No matter how much you may try to convince yourself you do not care, it is effecting your confidence.
If you currently have no money, focus your effort on making sure the basics are covered. Keep your clothes clean, ironed, and organized. The recipe for more confidence, is not in buying more but to care more. Always put enough effort in your look that you can look at your reflection in the mirror and give yourself a thumbs up. Don't be negative, don't compare, just have enough pride that you can face the world with your head held up.
2.) Clothes that Make You Happy:
There is something mystical about certain clothing that bring you so much joy. As a child, and even now, I love full A-line skirts that swoosh as I twirl or walk. So much joy can come out of a fashion piece like this and these are the "golden" fashion pieces of your wardrobe. It does NOT matter if other people may hate it, or mock you for wearing it. Do NOT let them take a way the joy that a certain T-shirt or dress may bring. Instead, take it as a challenge, on how you can style an outfit around that funky T-shirt, or misunderstood dress.
Wearing what makes you happy, makes you feel good. Feeling good, will boost your mood, and power. Cherish how you feel first and then judge what you end up looking like. You can always tweak an outfit at the final step.
One of the biggest problems in having style, is taking an outfit from "blah" to WOW! With most people living multifunctional lives, their wardrobe is usually comfortable and boring. A lot of plain shirts, jeans and predictable style. If you want an easy quick way to take a simple boring outfit, and hit it with some personality, invest in accessories! Whether it be statement jewelry, scarves, hats, gloves, or belts, it is the quickest way to add zest to your look and push you from the background straight to center stage.
