Feel Confident

“Wearing an outfit that makes you feel good increases your confidence and projects outwards.”

Have you ever noticed how a fresh haircut, a crisp, clean shirt, or the perfect shade of lipstick can make you feel confident? Well-chosen clothes and accessories can empower you, helping you feel more self-assured and ready to conquer the day.

In part two of this short blog series, I’m discussing what it means to Feel Confident with how you show up every day.

Confidence connected to clothing is more than just fashionable apparel – it is about choosing outfits that align with your personality and make you feel confident and powerful. Here are some tips on how to choose clothes that give you confidence.

Find your style:   Your style grows and evolves throughout your life. The right style for you will make you feel better about yourself. Think about an outfit where you felt good. What was it that you loved? Was it the colour that instantly lifted your mood? Was the fabric in a texture that you loved? Was the fit flattering to your body architecture? Was the pattern so beautiful that you received a compliment or two? Tune into the things that you loved. Or have a style consultation where you’ll define and refine all that and more.

Comfort is key:   When choosing clothes, choose the ones that fit well and are comfortable. When you’re at ease in your clothing, you move naturally and project confidence and poise. Emotional comfort is as important as physical comfort. You should feel like you’re wearing the right clothes for you and not trying to fit into “someone elses’s” clothes. When your clothes are physically uncomfortable or don’t fit properly you will be distracted by them which in turn will distract others. Your clothes should never be a talking point for all the wrong reasons.

Dress for the occasion:   Outfit should always match the situation you’re in. Wearing appropriate attire for an event or meeting will not only show respect to the people attending the event but will also boost your confidence and demonstrate your understanding of the context. You’ll feel more confident when you’re neither overdressed nor underdressed.

I know there are many tools that we can all access to help increase our upbeat sense of self, ensuring we project positively outwards, helping us improve, inside and out.  I show you how to use your wardrobe as a very empowering tool. I’ve been working with clients for over nine years, listening to their concerns, struggles, pain points, showing them how to express who they are with their visual image. With a style blueprint, like them, you will  have CLARITY about what to buy and how to wear it. You will feel CONFIDENT and self-assured. You will be CONSISTENT in how you show up. You will get CREATIVE with your look, keeping it relevant and modern.
