Fashion is a great self-esteem booster if you know how to play your cards right. Flattering clothes can instantly improve your mood and make you feel confident about yourself. For a lot of people, fashion is a means to channel their inner emotions and a
medium to express their personality. But on the other side of the spectrum are those who feel insecure about their fashion choices and feel distressed about the prospect of dressing up. If you are one of the people in the latter category, you are not alone. We all lack confidence
from time to time. Here are some tips to feel comfortable and confident in your fashion choices:
Embrace your body type
It is high time that we broke out of the ridiculous beauty standards and idealisation of the Kardashianesque boy type sold to us by cosmetic companies and social media. All body types are beautiful. Learning to dress in a way that highlights your best features will drastically improve your confidence. Follow those influencers who look like you and imitate their style in the beginning, and before you know it, you will learn how to perfectly dress for your body type.
Stick with basics and classics
We are all familiar with those days when we feel like there is nothing to wear. Basics and classics are the answer to all your fashion conundrums. You can never go wrong with a basic outfit like a white t-shirt and blue jeans or classic pieces like a vintage jacket or a retro
t-shirt. Both men and women will look good in vintage clothes. You can buy them at reasonable prices too if you choose to buy second-hand clothes and gently used vintage clothes
Fake it till you make it
More than imitating confidence, this advice is about not caring too much about others’ opinions about your fashion choices. Being comfortable and wearing what you love is more important than following any trend on the internet. You don’t have to break the bank by buying expensive clothes to fit in with the crowd if your actual love is thrifting. Prioritise being yourself over transient trends.
