THE POWER OF FASHION, CLOTHES AND STYLING

I shot this outfit a while back and hadn’t posted it as I wanted to write something about ‘power’, the irony of the T-shirt!

I don’t know if it’s just me, but I can put one outfit on and feel like an absolute dog turd and put another on and feel a million dollars (sorry for the cliché saying).

Obviously there is more to just putting on some new clothes and feeling great, it does come from feeling good within yourself, but I truly believe a good fitting, good styled outfit can instantly give us a major confidence boost!

I have an outfit which I call my ‘Tesco’ outfit, I wear it when I’m just nipping to the supermarket or popping to the post office, etc. Here’s how the outfit goes; a very old pair of ripped black jeans which are grey now because they’re so old, some of the rips in them aren’t ‘fashion rips’ they’re legit, old rips! My flip flops which I wore every day whilst travelling for 4 months, so it’s safe to say they’ve seen better days and then an old grey comfy soft sweatshirt! When I wear this, I honestly want to feel invisible, I don’t want people to look at me, I just want to go and do what I need to do. I’ve usually got no make-up on, greasy hair and no bra, just to top it all off. I don’t feel confident and I don’t feel good.

However, if I’m going out for lunch with my friends, going to an event, going to a meeting, or going out for dinner, going out for the day, I want to wear my bestest clothes and look the bestest I can! I literally dress to impress. And then, when I wear nice clothes and make an effort, I feel a hundred times better than I did (most of the time)!

It’s crazy that clothes can make us feel like that, I guess that’s the power of fashion! Well I hope I’m not the only one who feels like this? I know it’s so materialistic, so of course, I feel good every day because I’m SO grateful to have the most amazing family and friends, live a lovely life etc, but sometimes, we do need a confidence boost and that is why I love clothes and fashion so much, because they give me that feel good factor.

    I totally agree with this – it’s amazing what an outfit you love can do for your self confidence and I know I always feel my very best when I’m wearing an outfit I think is amazing! Also I have to say that your Tesco outfit sounds pretty cool (I have a pair of ‘travelling flip flops’ that I wore every day for 6 months too haha), I bet you still look gorgeous even if not as polished. Love these pink trousers, been eyeing them up in Topshop! xxx
