The way we dress can impact everything from mood to confidence levels. If the pandemic has seen you sporting your favourite athleisurewear, it may feel daunting to get back to everyday clothing. So, where do you start to get that confidence back?
Take a look at our top tips on what to think about when dressing to improve your confidence.
1. Know your shape
One of the challenges many women find is dressing for their body shape. While there are guides on what to choose – whether you’re a pear, apple or rectangle-shaped, these are loose recommendations to help get started. In truth, there are no hard and fast rules about what can make you feel confident; it’s all about how comfortable you feel wearing these styles. However, knowing your shape will give you the freedom to accentuate the areas you love to make you feel good on the inside and out.
2. Avoid in and out trends
Fashion trends come and go every season. However, these styles are not suited to everyone even though they are marketed to make you believe it. Building a capsule collection is a great way to help you feel more confident in your fashion choices, rather than following celebrity or designer looks. This collection should feature a great foundation with mix and match pieces alongside some standout styles. Doing this will save you time getting dressed in the morning, plus it saves you money in the long run.
3. Consider your lifestyle
Fashion should complement your lifestyle, so consider what pieces you need for work, rest, and play. Breaking your wardrobe down gives you the opportunity to purchase things that make you feel good and also that work for different occasions. At Froxx, we have a wide selection of ladies plus-sized clothing suited to all events, including occasionwear, everyday looks, and work outfits. So you have plenty of choices when updating your wardrobe.
4. Buy well-fitted clothing
Clothing sizes can be a little confusing, depending on the brand. However, it’s always best to focus on the fit. Perfectly fitting clothing will accentuate your silhouette and give you a boost of confidence. For workwear, opt for tailored pieces to create a polished look. If you’re in-between sizes, consider altering services to help you achieve the right fit.
5. Organise your wardrobe and declutter often
Many people have a wardrobe full of clothing they hardly wear. This abundance of choices can overwhelm your style options and make you feel less confident in your preferences. To make your wardrobe more wearable, declutter often to make room for pieces you love.
