They say the first impression is the last impression and in this digital day, it cannot be more true. The first thing people notice about you when they see you is the way you dress and how you carry yourself. It is also true that your personality and confidence also have to do a lot with the kind of impression you make on people, but before you get the chance to say anything to a new person, the first thing they notice about you are your clothes.
Your personality also hugely depends on how you carry yourself and your outfits are a huge part of that. It’s no secret that the clothes you wear have a huge effect on your mood and confidence. Power dressing for example helps you feel more confident and in control and is perfect for dates, interviews, presentations and any event where you need to be at the top of your game.
In order to dress right for every occasion, you need to define your own style. Here are helpful tips that will help you do just that;
• FIND YOUR STYLE ICON 💪🏽
There’s always a person, a public figure or a fashion icon whom we love to follow and whose style we love. Subconsciously, we try to emulate their style in our daily dressing. Finding that person will help you understand better what type of clothes you like to wear. This will help you shop smarter since you will know exactly what you have in mind to purchase.
• DRESS FOR COMFORT👕
We know it is not always possible to wear tank tops everywhere but that is not what i mean when I say dress for comfort. Wear dresses that you feel your best in. For example, if you’re uncomfortable wearing denim jackets (who gets uncomfortable wearing this though? Common!! It’s just an example) 🙂 and you’d rather stick to blazers, then do just that. Fashion and style does not have to be equated with showing skin or being the most daring with your outfit. Always remember you look your best when you are comfortable in what you’re wearing except it’s a school uniform you’ve been conjured to wearing—you know what I mean. 😉😂
• HAVE AN OUTFIT FOR EVERY OCCASION 👗
By occasion, I mean interviews, dates, festivals, parties and even weddings. Having outfits that you can keep as your go to for every occasion will not only help you get ready faster and save you the stress of thinking about what to wear but also help you be definitive in your style. You can choose outfits that best fit your dressing sensibilities and you won’t have to worry about looking out of place in them.
• DON’T BE SCARED TO EXPERIMENT 🧝🏾♀️
Having a set of personal style does not mean you can’t experiment with new styles every now and then. Trying out a bold color dress or a flashy pair of sneakers with your daily outfit can help you brighten up your day, mood and confidence — except you do not like flashy colors then it’s okay.
There is no set of rules being fashionable. Even old style is coming back to vogue. Fashion is what you feel your best in. So do not be afraid to try our new things and feel confident in whatever you choose to wear.
