Have you ever heard the phrase “change your shoes change your life”? There’s a reason that when we dressed in a fantastic outfit we feel great. Turning heads when you walk in a room is one of the most empowering feelings in the world.
The idea of ditching the oversized tees, leggings and flip flops for great fitting and flattering pieces changes both the way you see yourself and the opportunities in your life. See how you show up for one part of your life is how you show up for your entire life, when you start dressing well it spills over into all of your life.
You Start Taking Better Care of Yourself
When you feel better about yourself you take better care of yourself. When your clothes fit and make you look fab it’s always a massive boost of confidence. When I have the extra boost of confidence I start doing all of those amazing self care things that I seem to lose interest in when I have less self confidence.
Your Job Uplevels
No seriously, ever heard “dress for the job you want not the job you have?” It’s true! It’s much easier to be taken seriously when you look polished, presentable and put together. At the end of the day clients, upper managers and all of your coworkers start taking you more seriously. It’s easier to be thought of as more powerful when you are well dressed, polished and put together (let’s be real no one wants to listen to a person in I’ll fitting pants and top or flip flops and tee shirt).
You Become Someone People Want To Hear From
Being smart dressing means that people assume you are smart (one of the downfalls of being a woman in this world), so people listen to what you say. The first sign in our society of a smart and educated person is being very well dressed.
