Many times we are ready for spring and even after it arrives, it still feels like winter. The sun is shining and deceiving because it appears to be 65 degrees outside when it's really 40 degrees. We want to wear sunglasses to block the sun while wearing our winter coat even though it seems odd. (I often do this in the winter as well) So what do you do?
Dressing in the summertime professionally can be challenging because when it's scorching hot outside, we want to wear as less as possible, not a 3 piece suit. However, we must be selective in our choice of dress because some things just aren't excusable because it's 100 degrees outside. This is especially true when you are spending 8 hours of your day in an air conditioned building.
When purchasing items that you intend to wear often or for a long period of time, it is important that you purchase these items at the highest level of quality you can afford.
I consider we can often be underdressed but your can never be overdressed. There is usually a shift in your confidence level when you don't believe you are dressed on a similar level to those around you. When you are what is considered, underdressed, your confidence is lower because you have the perception that you aren't as good as those around you. However, when your look makes you feel you are dressed as someone who is most influential to others, it is a beautiful thing.
I don't wear much makeup because I am confident in knowing I am beautiful just the way I am and I don't need to "make myself up'," yet when it comes to highlighting my features, you will catch me wearing lipstick if nothing else.. Why? Because it draws attention to the powerful words I speak. I believe it gives the perception that whatever I say is more important than it would be without it. But you will have to understand how to use color to your advantage to realize this power of color on your lips.
You shouldn't spend money on your wardrobe, you should invest in it. As a subscriber to my blog, you may already be familiar with how I know if I'm making a good investment in my style but now I'm going to show you the formula. Using this formula with help you get the most value out of your purchases as it relates to your wardrobe.. Once determining the value of the product, you should expect to see a return on your investment in ways you may have never imagined.
If you've ever voted on "who wore it better," then on some level you already know that there's so much more that goes into a look than clothes. When we consider the true meaning of style, it is evident that the person should make the clothes and not the other way around but right now we are discussing the look in itself.
Whether you take careful consideration when getting dressed or you don't give it much of a thought at all, you should always care about what you wear because it represents you in a way that speaks louder than almost anything you have to say about yourself or the perceptions people may currently have about you. And more importantly, how you dress influences your behavior.
After reading my blog and understanding "the style journey", you know the true meaning of style. But how does one person possess style while another person is simply style-ish?
