If you look at yourself in the mirror and are struck by a sense of shame and embarrassment, then it is probably time to make a few changes. Yes, there is working out, getting a haircut, and brushing your teeth, but there is also something else just as important; finding a personal style.
But you nothing about fashion? Relax. You don’t have to be a fashion guru to find a style that works. All you really need to do is focus on what makes you look good.
Clothes That Fit
There is a simple fashion rule that you should accept right now; not every bit of attire looks good on every person. This is a simple fact, given that humans come in a virtually infinite range of shapes and sizes. But, the important thing to remember is that just because you can’t adopt Brad Pitt’s fashion line, it doesn’t mean you can’t still look great.
Focus on clothes that fit your body, and make the most of them. If you find you look best in baggy shirts, then make baggy shirts your style, and go wild. If you find that smart, tight fitting shirts are more your thing, then lean into it, and go nuts.
Fitting Your Lifestyle
But then, a smart shirt probably isn’t going to get the best response, if you prefer to spend your time outdoors, scrambling up mountains. Obviously.
Your style must fit your life. Embrace this, and adjust your wardrobe accordingly. If you’re an outdoors, beach bum, then check out those baggy shorts and snappy outdoor sunglasses. If you hang out at the local jazz lounge, surfing Aussie bingo games on your phone while you sip martinis, then smart shirts and snazzy chinos might be more up your street.
It Isn’t About The Price Tag
Some will insist that you can’t look good unless you spend a fortune. Rubbish. Fashion is not about the price tag, it’s about a style that shines and makes you feel good. Budget outfits can easily blow overpriced equivalents out of the water, assuming you take the time to look around, dig through some racks, and find something that works.
It’s About Feeling Good
Above all else; fashion is about making you feel good. True story. If you take the time to find an outfit that makes you smile, you are 110% on the right track. If you look in the mirror and feel good, you’ll act like you feel good, thus giving you the secret ingredient to fashion; confidence.
Yes, it is a cliché, but it just so happens to be true. Fashion is simply a gateway to feeling good, which is what an outfit is really all about. Look good, feel good, and see your socialising skills shoot through the roof.
Pro tip – you may well not even have to but new clothing. It is often simply a case of remembering what you already have, putting it together with other clothes you already have, and hey presto. You’re looking like a million bucks.
