This Is More Important Than How You Dress

Let me be honest with you, there’s something more important than the way that you dress.

Yes, it sounds strange coming from an online ‘fashion’ magazine but there’s something more important that will increase your confidence quicker, make you feel happier and at the same time make you more stylish.

It’s mindset.

They way you feel is more important than the way you dress.

If you think about it, you could be styled by the top stylist, wearing the best fitted suit they could find but if you don’t feel confident in it it’s going to show.

From a style perspective, not feeling good in what you wear will damage how good you actually look. You probably know someone who has an ‘ok’ style but manages to just look good in anything. They look comfortable, confident. I call it ‘effortless elegance’, and it’s all about looking good without trying too hard.

I go into more detail in the video below.

Do you worry what people think of you?

Do you dress for yourself, or for others?

Would you say you’re on purpose in life?

Do you compare yourself to others?

These are all questions that need to be answered and resolved before improving your style. These are questions that are far more important than what suit you wear.

But don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying how you dress isn’t important… I’m just saying how you feel is more important. Improving your style is a stepping stone to more confidence, it’s not the solution.

It’s just like weight loss, you could lose weight and get a boost of confidence but if there’s underlying issues you haven’t dealt with internally you’re going to look for something else external to make you confident.

There’s so much more to life and your confidence than the size of your lapels and your choice of moisturiser. Focus on your appearance, but make sure you’re paying attention to how you feel.

So do you agree?
