Do you think that self-esteem is something that comes from the inside? You are right! But it is not the only truth. Your style can tell people a lot about your self-esteem as well.
Working on increasing your self-esteem and self-confidence is a long and complicated process. All the tools can be helpful! Why not use your style and make it work the way you want it?
The way you dress, the colors and styles you prefer can have a great impact on how you feel inside. I want to share with you some tips, about how to dress and feel confident about it. This is not related to the look of your clothes, but more to the feelings you get when you wear this or that piece of cloth.
How can your style help with your self-esteem?
We all know, it is important to dress well. But what is more important is to have a look that makes YOU feel well, physically and psychologically.
What should you pay attention to in order to create a style that will lift your self-esteem?
#1. First of all, it is important that your look is secure with your sense of style. A simple example is, when a girl tries to impress a boy she wears high heels, mini skirts etc. but she feels so insecure about it and so uncomfortable. So this outfit has a reverse effect. She doesn’t become attractive to men, instead, she turns into a weird-looking girl with visibly low self-confidence. Be true to yourself. There are no standards.
#2. Everybody has favorite clothes. Do you? Grab them! The way you feel wearing one or another item has a high impact on how confident you feel. In order to lift self-confidence wear your favorite clothes more often. Unless it is pajamas. No, don’t wear pajamas outside. It will not work any good for you, unfortunately.
#3. Find clothes that you feel confident in. You remember how you feel after wearing an item for the whole day. If it makes you feel itchy, uncomfortable, or if you find it too short, too tight, then consider not wearing it. When the item doesn’t match you it will ruin your self-confidence for the rest of the day. And it is not what we are searching for.
#4. Before you run to the shopping mall for purchasing new clothes, consider your lifestyle. If you are a stay at home mom, then, most probably office pants and high heels won’t be a good investment. Also, when you think: my favorite type of cloth is ripped jeans, so I’m gonna wear it more often. It might not be your case if you are a lawyer.
What I want to say is, we all have favorite clothes, and we all deal with certain kinds of situations. In order to feel confident all the time, construct your wardrobe from the pieces that are suitable for your lifestyle. It is possible to find a suit that will be as comfortable as your pajamas, and it is also possible to find clothes that will make you feel flawless in a playground with your child.
#5. Color your wardrobe. It is so easy to mix and match white, black, and gray clothes. However, every time you wear it you feel yourself like a mouse? No one notices you, and someone will probably take your place in the queue at the coffee shop. More than that, dark colors make you feel depressed. Stand out from the crowd! Choose your favorite color and add it to your wardrobe. Bright colors will lift your mood. People love to see colors but are not brave enough to wear them. Compliments are guaranteed.
#6. What can lift your self-esteem better than the correct underwear? Do not underestimate the power of beautiful lingerie. It is not visible under your clothes, but wearing it lifts your self-confidence. (Trust me it works).
#7. The last tip, but to my mind, the most important one. When trying to find your style that will help you with your self-confident you need to pay attention to people around you. Admit it, low self-esteem and the lack of confidence are highly related to the environment you live and work in. It will be very hard to find confidence if people around you do not approve your style.
Yes, everybody says: follow your style, be yourself and you will find yourself happy. It is not 100% true. We live in a society, we communicate to people. This makes us responsible for following some ethical norms and rules. So if you want to lift your self-esteem, you will need a support from other people. And to get that support, your look should not be shocking or scaring people around you.
Trying to increase your self-esteem is a long process of working on yourself. It is not about what you do, but more about what you think about yourself. It may take a long time to achieve it, thus all the methods are good methods.
Our style is an inseparable part of our personality. Thus, knowing how to dress in order to help yourself to be more confident is a great tool, I think.
Pay attention to your lifestyle, your comfort, appropriateness, and the impression you want to make. With these simple tips, turn your wardrobe into a new tool for achieving your goals.
