Conspicuously Falling for Fashion
One of the best schemes to boost your confidence is to dress in your power clothes. The strong, bold, powerful parka, the statement specs, or the hot pink and glitter mules. Go as soft or as loud as you like. Slip into your magical realm and grace yourself with your superpowers: stand proud and feel unstoppably confident.
This fall, embrace your unique self. Wear what makes you feel like a true badass…even to your 9AM meeting. The metallic pink Sies Marjan leather jacket or the Here/Now fur pom pom sneaks. Go for it. Don a pair of fluorescent House of Harlow pants, stand up tall, and feel confident to be you.
Empower yourself through your presence. It is so conspicuous when a person feels insecure, right? Someone who pulls her sleeve down over her hands, is shrugging, and can barely give you a firm hand to shake. Do not wear what is comfortable, wear what challenges you to step out of comfort zone and into a place where you feel like you can accomplish anything. Because you can. If you believe it, so will they.
Take it to the next level: your power outfit, boots, or accessories do not need to be a new purchase. Mix and match the old and the new, the high and the low-end. Wear a piece that is meaningful; a rediscovered find from your cedar closet. Pull out that old Fiorucci tee from the late 1990s... and if you cannot find it, Fiorucci is back! Talk about a fall crush!
Just as the leaves shed their summer colors and embrace the changing season, shed your self-doubt, and dress to believe in yourself!
