It’s one of those things we pay attention to during the important, more game-changing days in our lives. Be it a job interview or a date, we can’t help but obsess a bit over what we wear.
Because impressing a third party often starts with impressing ourselves. Confidence in one’s own abilities is a great way to instil confidence in another. Feeling great about yourself is a start in getting others to feel great about you as well.
So why can’t we practice this more often?
Dressing up can be a stress-buster and a confidence booster. It allows you to exude a more confident vibe making you more approachable or respectable to others, and making it seem like “YOU GOT THIS”.
But it can be a bit daunting to get your A-Game on every single time.
Here are a few things you can remember while getting your wardrobe together, to keep putting your dressy foot forward!
Have a few items in your wardrobe that just fit like a glove? Get them replicated in different fabrics if you must. Find bargains on high-quality brands that will look good and also last you long.Get more items in your wardrobe that just fit you great.
- Go dark.
Shop darker colours not just because they’re slimming, but because you can get away with almost any faux pas with a dark colour. Spilt food doesn’t show so easy, and if it’s a cheaper fabric in your garment, it’s likely you won’t be able to tell till you feel it.
- Make a point.
Good communication starts with thinking about your audience and streamlining your communication. So if your bead-y earrings from Linking Road isn’t going to communicate the right message at your interview, don’t pair it with that suit.
So go ahead and dress up. Look sharp. It’ll take some stress off your look and off your whole day.
