I get it – style can be stressful. Especially when it comes to shopping.
The chaos of going into a clothing store can be overwhelming AF. You have old ladies always getting in the way and sales associates pressuring you into buying an ugly dress just for that commission. Cramped aisles and dressing rooms with hideous lighting. Annoying humans. Children screaming (and probably adults too). And just the entire problem of WHAT THE F*CK DO I EVEN BUY?
And don’t even get me started with putting together an outfit.
The daunting stare into your wardrobe hoping that an outfit magically pops out at you. Trying on 5,000 different looks just to come to the conclusion that nothing ever looks good on you because you’re a failure so you finally give up – throwing on a pair of jeans and a t-shirt or some random ass concoction hoping you don’t look like you just stepped out of a bad 80s movie.
I get it boo. I’ve been there. But trust me – once you start putting into perspective of how you’re currently being perceived and how you want to be perceived and what type of opportunities you want to attract – you’ll start changing the narrative of how you dress.
So, what does your style currently say about you?
I want you to think about the past week (or past few days because memory) and think about how people have been looking at or reacting to you. Were you ignored? Did you randomly get compliments? Were people stopping and staring? Was someone driving by and staring at you for so long that they nearly crashed into another vehicle? (Side note: this actually happened to me once…they survived).
Observe these reactions and then reflect on how your appearance may or may not have contributed to those reactions.
If you’re not getting the reactions that you want and you don’t feel as confident as you want to in your current style – here’s what I want you to do:
Take a couple of minutes to imagine your new style.
What do you see? How do you feel in your new style? How are others perceiving you? And most importantly: how are you perceiving yourself?
Use what you envisioned as motivation to get where you want to go.
You want your style to say who you truly are - not what society says you should be. You could be saying you're bold, loud, and love to be seen - but your style could be saying you're quiet, shy, and hate attention.
Allow your style, personality, lifestyle, and how you want to be perceived to be aligned. And then surround yourself with people who support that.
And if you want support with a community of badasses, I encourage you to join Style Worthy Club. I promise it’ll be worth it.
