Wear What You Want Effortlessly: How to Feel Confident in Anything  

Many of us feel limited in what we can wear. That inner voice might tell us that we don’t look good in leggings, can’t wear a fitted dress, or are too fat for a crop top. Even though you want to reach for a bolder option, sometimes it just feels easier to cover up with a sweatshirt. That lack of inner confidence can close us off from a whole realm of fashion possibilities. If you’re ready to break out of your current routine and get yourself feeling confident in anything, keep reading for our top tips. 

1. Buy well-fitting clothes

One of the most important aspects of buying clothes to boost confidence is to get clothes that fit. Wearing clothes that are either too big or too small will never look quite right. If you want to feel your best, you need clothes that highlight your strengths. Lack of confidence can lead some to buy clothes based on the size tag, but buying clothes that fit will help you look and feel a lot better. Shopping with your specific body type in mind is a great way to ensure you look your best. 

 2. Practice positivity

Gratitude lists, positive affirmations, and self-care are all great ways to practice positivity. Today, we are inundated with messaging from ads, acquaintances, and social media, much of which is not conductive to a positive body image. Set aside some time each day to celebrate yourself. For some, that might mean starting a workout or skincare routine. Writing down everything you like about yourself or repeating affirmations in the mirror are other ways to help increase positive feelings about ourselves. 

 3. Find fashion inspiration

Today, many of our Instagram feeds are filled with skinny, photoshopped models. The ads we are exposed to contain unrealistic body standards. It can be hard to feel good about yourself when these images are the norm. What looks good on ultra-thin professional models will not look good on the rest of us. Finding a fashion role model is a great way to give yourself realistic inspiration to model your own looks. However, if you fill your feeds with real people, you will have a more realistic idea of what you can pull off and get great ideas for what wear next. 

4. Push yourself 

The only way to get over a fear is to expose yourself to it slowly. If you’re nervous about breaking out of your current style, picking a few bolder outfits a week will help you ease into your new look. It’s never easy to do something different, so jumping in will ensure you get started. If you’re struggling, start slow. If you want to wear yoga pants, start by wearing them under a long shirt. Before you know it, you will be confident in your new wardrobe. 

5. Don’t worry about others

For many, we struggle to wear what we want because we worry about what the people around us are thinking. You should never structure your life around what you think others expect of you. Realistically, the people around us are not at all concerned with what we are wearing and the fears we have are our own intrusive thoughts. If you struggle with worrying about what others think, you may want to work to quiet your inner voices. You look great, be sure to tell yourself. 

Follow these five tips and you will be well on your way to looking and feeling your best in any clothes. We hope you find the confidence to wear whatever you want and feel good while doing it.
