Whether you’re entering a completely new situation or going through your daily routine, it’s important to have a positive attitude and to feel good about yourself. While confidence can be derived from many different sources, such as knowing you have the necessary skills to complete a task or having the right people around you to offer support, how you feel about your outfit can help boost your confidence to another level.
You can wear your confidence on your sleeve! So, how do you dress with confidence? Let’s break it down.
Wear bold colors
There is a common misconception that to pass the message of humility, you need to wear demure and dull colors. Nonsense! Put colors together to make a bold fashion statement that screams confidence. Be aware of the setting before putting together an outfit.
We can’t overemphasize this enough. A confident person knows how to accessorize to accentuate and build upon what they already have. Accessories have a way of introducing elegance to an outfit, and whether you choose a statement neck piece or a wow factor earring, never complete your outfit without double checking to see if an accessory can make it look even more impressive.
Dress for your body type
One of the greatest disservices you can do for yourself is to wear clothes that are not appropriate for your body. Every body is different and beautiful, and certain items that look flattering on one person won’t work as well on another. A person looking to dress with confidence knows what feels best for her body shape and dresses to fit that.
Dress for the occasion
Do not get caught wearing party appropriate clothes to a job interview. To exude confidence, you need to assess the event and dress accordingly.
Dress for comfort
A confident person is one that is comfortable in their own skin. Be sure that you are comfortable in whatever ensemble you are wearing.
