Well, worry no more, I’ve teamed up with Alterations Boutique to give you some tips on how to feel confident in whatever you wear. Keep reading for some help with stocking up your wardrobe with some confidence boosting pieces.
Boosting Your Confidence With Clothing
Perfectly Fitted Clothing
Clothing looks so much better when it actually fits you correctly. It is amazing how much of a difference clothing alterations can make to how you look and feel in an outfit. Take a blazer for example, these can easily look too large, not fitted and like you are drowning in somebody else’s clothing. Well, not with alterations. Sleeves can be shortened to fit your arm length, shoulder padding removed if necessary, and darts used to make the blazer come in at your waste. Simple alterations like this can take you from feeling conscious in an oversized blazer to confident knowing that you look sharp and sophisticated.
Opt For Styles You Love
Nothing will make you feel less confident than wearing a style you don’t truly love. Just because something is popular doesn’t mean you need to wear it! If flared trousers are in but they make you feel short and unproportioned, ditch them and stick with your favourite skinny jeans. There is no point in wearing something if it is going to make you feel less confident. After all, confidence shows on the outside too, and if you feel good in an outfit this will show and automatically improve how you handle yourself around other people!
Adding accessories to a look can take it from basic to glamorous, giving you those few extra details you need to boost your confidence. Accessories can also take an outfit that may seem basic, but is something you are really confident wearing, and turn it into something special. Say you feel most confident in a basic black dress, that is absolutely fine! You should definitely wear this and then you can just spruce it up with some jewelry, a detailed handbag or a headband. If you are opting for a tied up hairstyle with your outfit, dangly or hoop earrings can help with confidence a lot, giving you something that still frames your face while being able to have your hair out of the way – it’s a win win.
