Outfits are never the be-all and end-all of looking great. They certainly do help, and the fashion world would be pretty dismal without the thought and attention that goes into the beautiful garments we have access to. There’s hardly a replicable feeling than finding threads that suit your physique, your look, and your general attitude down to the bone.
However, it’s easy to forget that wearing the right thing isn’t the only consideration to be made while looking good. Confidence is the glue that holds it all together. Confidence can mean many things, but in this article, we aren’t concerned with arrogance. We’re concerned with self-respect, self-acceptance, and self-love. Those three considerations constitute Confidence with a capital C.
Even a famed supermodel wouldn’t look right in designer wear if they didn’t have the confidence to pull it off. Summer, winter, white or black dresses are different on the surface, but all require that you rock them with that inner mojo that is relatively difficult to categorize, but very easy to feel. You’ll know when you have it. These following confidence tips will allow you to have it.
Staying up-to-date is a vital component in staying confident in your wardrobe. This doesn’t mean you need to conform to modern fashions religiously, but it does mean adopting a few little modern chic styles here and there to give yourself a feeling of being current. Even if you theme yourself around an uncommon look, 50’s chic for example, there will be methods you can use to keep yourself looking fresh and well maintained. Modern makeup kits, skin care techniques and even exercise regimes or diets can keep you feeling on top form at all times.
Maintain yourself well. Give a close watch on your figure and make sure you exercise enough to help relieve the stressors of daily life. Give yourself the room to introspect and reflect, meditating if needed to help you reduce self-critical thoughts, and give you the presence necessary to rock your look with attitude. Remember, no matter your age, you can look simply stunning and journey through life with an open and responsive attitude.
Judging yourself is a sure fire way to never feel happy in your skin. The only way we can ever feel confident is to look into the mirror and find no enemy. We’re not trying to downplay the genuine psychological impact your insecurities can hold. However, we are advocating you do everything in your power to shift those perceptions. You are much more beautiful than you know, and it’s likely that many people see you with absolute reverence.
Don’t be afraid to be a little ‘out-there’ in your wardrobe and fashion choices. What is normal? Ask one hundred people on the street, and you’ll get one hundred different answers. If you want to try a new style, get an experimental piercing, or dye your hair a whole new color, who has the right to stop you? As long as you adhere to a few simple style techniques like matching colors efficiently and wearing garments in good condition, you have every right to ask others to respect your styling choices.
These tips will help you feel like the confident, able woman you are deep down. Dressing considerations aside, you will no doubt be the belle of the ball wherever you go, at least internally. Most of the time, that’s enough.
