Bulding Your Self-esteem
How To Boost Your Self-esteem With The Clothes You Wear
A lady with the right shoes can just do whatever she pleases. Do you know Cinderella? The industry for fashion is not just a blooper or boo-boo ideals. While education for women and values are two more important things than your designer bag, fashion makes a huge divergence in women’s outlook, countenance, and personal appearance.
Remember, the movie “Pretty Woman,” where there was a scene of Julia Roberts' character shopping on a beautiful day along the fabulous Rodeo Drive?
That scene for sure glued your eyes on TV, not for the fashion, but due to the happiness, you can see in her character and the transformation prominent in her smile, which is heavenly and a reflection of self-esteem.
On the other hand, are you familiar with “Dress for Success,” a non-profit organization? Some poor women who were homeless and abused are being helped by this organization to dress them in a professional apparel to regain their self-esteem and join the workforce again.
If you can see how these ladies are being styled and transformed wearing a simple suit from Donna Karan, it will bring tears to your eyes.
There are lots of studies and surveys on how fashion affects your life, and most of them are one in saying that when you feel good about yourself while looking in the mirror, you will manifest the right attitude, competence, focus, and confidence.
Here are some do’s and don't’s in clothes to wear:
● Do spell out your unique style.
● Do experiment.
● Do watch one’s step to vitality.
● Do commit.
● Don’t go buying with friends.
● Don’t be led by a lie that expensive brands of designers are the only stylish clothes.
● Don’t anticipate your life will change overnight.
● Don’t forget to look for an independent stylist for guidance.
Do try to figure out your special style
The environment where you grew up in is a significant influence on the style that you embody. Growing up is an indicator wherein you just have to search yourself, and whatever might be the surroundings you are in, you just succumb to it and fit with the people around.
Well, don’t just fit in, distinguish yourself by absolutely focusing on what style you want for yourself. Don't depend too much on others' influence or what your family and friends want you to wear. Wearing the clothing you want is the freedom you have drawn for yourself, and that is where self-esteem begins.
Explore different styles not just one kind of fashion, and remember to include your hair. You might have been wearing your hair on one side for too long already. Try a new hairstyle for a change, by either braiding it or tying it up in a bun.
If you have been wearing the same style of clothes, try to dress up. Maybe a floral dress with matching cardigan and jewelry, not just plain jeans and shirts every day, will make you glow. Sticking to one style often makes your aura monotonous and dry even if you wear the clothes with finesse and charm.
Do watch one’s step to your vitality
The goal of fashion is to be able to manifest the beauty you have inside, hidden for years because of your inability to draw it out. That’s all over now. Now is the time for you to go out shopping and look for the most fabulous dress you want to wear.
When you put it on, listen to your heartbeat, and hear what it is saying when you look in the mirror wearing the dress and shoes. You like it, right? Now contemplate why you think that way.
It is because wearing a dress you like transforms you into a new woman who is more confident, more professional looking, and most of all, gorgeous and beautiful. You bought that tailored suit for a reason, right? You enjoy being dominant and controlling.
And why wouldn’t you? You might even be tempted to do a work out in a gym and leave feeling great in body, mind, and spirit. They all go together so don’t hesitate.
Fashionable people commit to their looks and make no excuses. There is a feeling of freedom being just you anywhere you go. So what are you waiting for? Make that commitment now to transform yourself and sense of style. You’ll see the difference, far better than you expect - self-esteem and glamor.
Don’t Go Shopping With Friends
Avoid shopping with friends because they will divert your attention from the initial fashion intuition that you have. Don’t be a victim of a friend when you’re trying on a dress and she says, “Hmm, I don’t like it!”
Remember, she is not the one who likes the dress in the first place but you. So, as long as you like it then go for it. Or try to shop by yourself so you can have more freedom to choose the style of dress you want.
Don’t be led by a lie that expensive brands of designers are the only stylish clothes
Fashion is also about building self-esteem, but with that said, always prioritize what is important in your life. Picture your life like a blank canvass and make a decision on how you would draw yourself on it.
Don’t anticipate your life will change overnight.
Do not presume your life changes overnight, but bear in mind that the significant steps you take to enhance your self-esteem will help you develop a healthy perspective on your life.
Don’t forget to look for an independent stylist for guidance.
When you start on the wrong foot in choosing the right fashion and lifestyle for you, don’t hesitate to contact an expert stylist to guide you in making a decision and to bring back your confidence in life. There are lots of them around, just pick up the phone and call; they’ll be glad to help you.
When you see a person with self-esteem radiating from her eyes, you stop and look at the person a second time. You can’t help but ask, what's with that person that made me look twice?
Well, it’s simple, it's the right sense of style. When you like what you wear, you’re happy. And when the style you wear makes you smile, it generates confidence and determination, which draws a powerful energy for you to be capable of doing anything for success.
