Have you ever had a day when you’ve looked in the mirror and thought, not today? You might have even retreated back to the safe haven of bed before a second alarm reminded you that the office beckons. Usually, this will be due to a hit to your confidence levels. Perhaps you looked at your body and felt like you’d put on a few pounds. Maybe a breakout occurred on your skin the night before. Whatever the reason, the confidence you once had has disappeared. How do you get it back?
Believe it or not, you might be able to solve a knock to your confidence with a few of the right style decisions. The right outfit, accessories, or fashion choices can make you feel like you just walked out of a Vogue photoshoot, even on your worst day.
Wear A Flashy Piece Of Jewellery
The benefit of wearing a cool, elegant, or bold piece of jewelry is that it draws attention from the areas causing your confidence to be drained. For instance, if you think you have the bottom of a Kardashian and not in a good way, you should choose a unique piece of jewelry for your neck. It doesn’t have to be expensive either, just eye-catching and statement-making. There are plenty of featured jewelry collections that have this effect as a result of their cool, trendy design. Pick the right items and people will notice, commenting on your choice, leading to a wonderful boost in your confidence.
Dress Up Your Feet
You can also think about drawing attention away from other parts of your body by dressing up your feet. For instance, you can choose shoes that don’t go with your outfit at all. By doing this, you will immediately draw attention to this part of your body and this can actually look wonderfully stylish. Models and celebrities do this all the time to make their fashion choices stand out and look more unique.
Alternatively, anklets, toe rings and the right nail polish can all have a similar effect.
Dress To Impress
If you are feeling a little blue about the way you look, dress towards a more formal style and aim to look professional. When people look professional, they are immediately treated more seriously. Research has shown that you can even gain more respect from strangers just by changing the way you look. A stunning blazer with a neat skirt and pristine black heels will automatically change the way you are viewed by others. Subconsciously, their reactions to your elevated style will give you the boost you need.
Or Dress Comfortably
Finally, if you are feeling like your confidence has taken a hit, the knee-jerk reaction is usually to dress up and do more to the point where you no longer feel comfortable in what you are wearing. This is a mistake. Instead, you should choose something that makes you feel completely at ease. If you aren’t comfortable with what you’re wearing, people will pick up on it, and this will cause your self-confidence to drop even further.
You see, the right style choices really can pick you up when a look in the mirror makes you want to retreat from the world.
