Clothing Confidence

Clothes can be a huge confidence booster. Whether it's a concert tee that brings back memories with your best friends, or a shirt that looks like it was made just for you, clothing makes you feel good. Wearing your favorite outfit can make even the dreaded early wake-up seem stylish. Here are some tips for achieving clothing confidence.

1. Dress for yourself
Don't dress to please others. Let your clothes show who you are. Feel confident in your fashion choices and let your true self shine. 

2. Seek out style inspiration
Looking for a new look? Scroll through Pinterest, Instagram, and check out blogs to get a sense of what you like and don't like. The inner fashionista/o in you will be inspired in no time.

3. Pop some tags!
Channel your inner Macklemore and head to the thrift shop! One-of-a-kind pieces hide on those rows and rows of hangers and at a low price, too. Go forth and conquer the land of consignment! You'll be singing "I wear your granddad's clothes, I look incredible," faster than you can say "clothes by the pound." 

4. Plan outfits in advance
Overwhelmed by your wardrobe when you're getting ready for the day? Plan what you want to wear the night before. You'll save time in the morning and be able to get some extra sleep.

5. Get rid of clothes you don't want
Donate clothes you don't like and no longer wear to Goodwill, Salvation Army, sell them online, or give them away to friends. It will make more room in your closet for clothes you love.

6. Most importantly, wear what makes you happy. Let your style smile!
No one is as unique and awesome as you. Your clothes will show it.
