You are looking at the mirror, ready to go out. But are you dressed good enough?
In your home you can be yourself, you can wear anything from comfy pajamas to fancy outfits. But out in the real world people will judge you. They will notice your ways of dressing.
Sometimes we leave the house without considering the 3 most important aspects of our style.
Before I show you the 3 most important aspects of style, here is a valuable quote from the book "Compelling People" - By John Neffinger & Matthew Kohut
Clothing can carry with it powerful associations about who we are, not only for others but for ourselves as well, to the point that the clothes we wear affect how our brains work. Like a superhero's costume, the right clothes make us feel like we are ready to take on whatever we are facing. - John Neffinger & Matthew Kohut
The 3 Most Important Factors When It Comes To Your Personal Appearance:
1. Is It Appropriate For The Occasion?
You don't want to be the odd ball at the event. You'll hear everyone murmuring about you. Depending on the occasion, wear whats appropriate.
Look at yourself in the mirror and ask yourself if what you are wearing is appropriate for the occasion. If you have no clue, ask a friend, ask the host, or look it up online. Don't show up to a wedding reception in shorts and a T-shirt. Don't show up at a pool party in a suit and tie.
2. Is It Comfortable?
Worst than looking like the worst person in the room is feeling like the worst person in the room. Uncomfortable clothing is not acceptable. It will ruin your confidence with worry and negative thoughts. Before you walk out the door make sure you feel comfortable from head to toes.
3. Does It Make Me Look Good?
You gotta walk in the door with style. Dress confident, feel confident. Along with a brief pause at the door and a gaze around the room, the clothing you wear should accentuate your good looks.
When you question your appearance you give yourself a second chance to make the better choice. So next time you look at yourself in the mirror, ask yourself.
Is it appropriate for the occasion?
Is it comfortable?
Does it make me look good?
