How To Dress Confidently - 8 Tips To Boost Your Confidence
Dress Confidently & Live Confidently
Because one believes in oneself, one doesn't try to convince others.
Because one is content with oneself, one doesn't need others' approval.
Because one accepts oneself, the whole world accepts him or her.
― Lao Tzu
1. Be confident with your body.
Accept the fact that you are not a supermodel - it's OK to have short legs and 30% body fat. As long as you are taking care of your body, you should be proud of your figure. If you really want lean legs or big butt then work on it! I feel the most confident about my body after a workout, because I know I have worked hard for the body I have right now. Even though I have cellulite on my legs I feel confident in shorts. When you are confident with your shape, dress confidently will be much easier.

2. Smile, make sure you don't have lipstick on your teeth.
A smile is the best accessory to any outfits. Remember to smile when you need a boost of confidence.
3. Know yourself, flaunt the body part make you feel confident.
Understand your body type and highlight your best feature. Drive all the attention to your favorite body part. For example, use a belt with huge buckles to emphasize your waistline or wear an off the shoulder top to highlight your neckline.
4. Wear clothes that make you feel comfortable.
You won't feel confident in clothes you can't be yourself. If you can't walk normally in heels then don't wear heels - you don't need a certain kind of shoes to be sexy. If you hate belt bags hanging around your waist then wear a cross body bag - you don't need to force any fashion trend on yourself to be stylish. If you just love the simple T-shirt and jeans combo then don't put on a floral dress - you don't need an outfit to make you interesting and beautiful. The key to dressing confidently is to feel comfortable in your clothes.
5. Wear sunglasses.
Hiding behind sunglasses like a coward actually make me feel more confident. It seems easier to not care about other people's stare when wearing sunglasses, especially when my sunglasses are fabulous like this pair from Rayban.
6. Hold your head high, own your look.
I know you feel people are staring and judging all the time - maybe they are maybe they are not - just hold your head high and own it! The thing is, people will always have opinions about your clothes your makeup your hair, but your own opinion is the only one that matters. Your confidence will radiate and people will more likely to agree with your style.
7. Have fun with fashion, don't take yourself too seriously.
Experiment with different styles and trends. The more you practice the more confidence you feel. Try a few new things every now and then, don't restrict yourself saying things like I never look good in red or I can't pull off a baker boy hat - well have you tried it?
8. Embrace your flaws and mistakes.
Anyone can make a mistake and wear things they shouldn't wear - don't let a mistake or two destroy your confidence. Bad outfit day? Lesson learned and move on - dress confidently next time.
