Since simplifying my wardrobe, I’ve learned a lot about how the right outfit can make you feel great. I love owning ONLY clothes that make me feel confident and can suit many occasions. not only do I spend far less time thinking about what I wear, but I also generally feel more confident and comfortable than ever because I know that everything I have is a good choice.
That said, when its time for a new item or an update, there’s no better feeling than walking home with a brand new piece of clothing for my wardrobe! I wear the heck out of it, because I know exactly what I love. Its a great feeling.
Before the shopping guilt kicks in, I’m here to justify why you should absolutely treat yourself to new clothes when you want or need them, as long as you’re making intentional choices.
After all, these are the three top ways the right outfit can make you feel great!
Sharing is caring…
1. The Right Outfit Can Boost Confidence
Many studies have found that having the right outfit has been proven to boost your confidence and performance.
But we don’t need to tell you that.
Think about some of your favorite outfits – and how they make you feel when you’re in them.
No matter how many times you put them on, you still get that same feeling, right?
That’s one of several reasons I transitioned my whole wardrobe to a versatile capsule wardrobe and dress code.
That’s the power of clothing. It makes us confident and feel great about the way we look. It boosts our mood and can turn an ordinary day into a great one.
Clothing also impacts the way you act. If your outfit makes you feel more powerful, you’re more likely to act that way.
It’s the same logic of using active clothing to hit the gym or go for a run. The clothing isn’t just designed to be flexible and breathable for excessive – it also empowers you to train harder.
2. It Can Help You Reach Goals
Having the right outfit doesn’t just make you feel good about yourself, it also changes the way people perceive you and has a massive influence on the first impression you make.
Whether you’re going on a first date or for an interview, the outfit choices you make are important.
If you look clean, professional and prepared, people will see you that way.
Which makes you not only more likely to get the job, but also other opportunities and progressions down in line. In fact, a recent survey proved that 80% of executives say an employee’s clothing affects their chances of earning a promotion.
3. The Right Outfit Can Support The Environment
Buying yourself new clothing when you’ve already got a full wardrobe can feel like a waste. But there are ways that you can update your wardrobe, all while keeping the environment in mind.
This is where sustainable fashion comes in.
This is fashion that is designed and made from sustainable sources while ensuring that the people who made it are paid fairly.
It’s the way forward for the clothing industry and even big brands are joining the fight for more sustainable fashion. This includes ASOS, as 34% of all fibres used in their brands come from sustainable sources.
And there you have it.
Clothing has such an important role in our lives, so it’s important that you buy the right ones for you.
After all, life is too short to not love the outfit you’re in.
