4 Key Reasons to Polish Your Personal Style

Mia Morales Oct 23, 2019
Don't make the mistake of thinking dressing to impress is only worth doing for work or special occasions. Developing your own personal style and learning to dress well for you instead of always for other people's benefit can be rewarding on so many levels. To begin with, it can be a massive self-esteem booster.

1. It's a Mood Booster

You're no doubt familiar with that rush of confidence and self-esteem you feel when you know you look like a million bucks on any given day. You feel like you can do almost anything. Make sure you also learn how to take the perfect selfie so that you're always primed and ready to capture your best looks and share them with your social circle.

2. You'll Truly Look Your Best

Everyone knows someone who technically dresses well, but doesn't actually dress for themselves. There's just something about their look, as well as the way they carry themselves, that makes it feel like they're just trying too hard. Worrying too much about what others think of how you dress can lead to looking really overdone as well.

3. It's a Way to Express Yourself

There are lots of ways to tell other people a little something about who you are deep down, but showing parts of your unique personality via the way you put yourself together is one of the most effective, not to mention the most fun. Are you a quirky, artistic type? Let it show by dressing in bright colors, fun patterns, and flowing fabrics.

4. It Builds a Sense of Independence

While there's nothing inherently wrong with wanting other people to like how you look, it's not emotionally healthy to care more about other people's opinions than you do your own. Dressing to impress yourself instead of to keep up with the trends or be more like someone else is a great way to cultivate a more independent spirit.
