Fashion provokes many opinions. Some think that it is superficial, others, live and breath it and some are largely indifferent to it. However, fashion and personal style can go a long way to help you to feel more self-confident and express your individuality. Using fashion to express who you are, or who you aspire to be, was first used as a social, cultural and individual form, most notably by the French in the 18th century. There are many ways that you can use fashion to boost your self-confidence and express your individuality.
Use Fashion for Confidence
Have you ever had a piece of clothing that made you feel amazing and that you wore all of the time? Try to recreate that feeling by energising your wardrobe and purchase a few new pieces that make you feel comfortable and self-confident and wear them as your ‘go to’ pieces whenever you are facing a stressful day.
Think Outside the Box
If you find it hard to find clothes that express who you are as a person, then it’s time to re-evaluate where you shop. Many of the high street stores cater to a particular taste, age range or fashion that is ‘in’ or on trend. Try boutiques or new designers and have fun experimenting to find what suits your personality and body type. Always go for quality over quantity and be bold and allow your true self to shine through!
Create a Style that Fits Your Brand
Every, single person has their own unique brand. This goes deeper than your personal style and fashion sense. Your brand is something that you consistently curate over time, as you grow as a person and know yourself better. Using fashion as a way to express your individuality can help you to create and refine your personal brand, boost your self-confidence and make you been seen in the world, the way you feel and want to be seen. Make a promise to yourself to stop hiding the best of yourself and to allow yourself to be seen!
