“Buy what you don’t have yet, or what you really want, which can be mixed with what you already own. Buy only because something excites you, not just for the simple act of shopping.” – ― Karl Lagerfeld
Clothing must be comfortable; complement your body shape and make you feel good. Whilst clothing is a necessity, it is also an extension of your identity.
When shopping for a new clothing item, always consider your existing wardrobe and how this new item will enable you to mix and match creating new looks with what you already own. Do not buy for the sake of buying. Buy because you enjoy the shirt, the pants, the jeans, the t-shirt and how it makes you feel.
Wearing clothes which fit well and boost your mood, is guaranteed to help you perform your best at work and to relax more socially. Your confidence will be higher. Dr. Baumgartner, in her book “ “You Are What You Wear: What Your Clothes Reveal About You” writes that “when you dress in a certain way, it helps shift your internal self”.
You are worthy of feeling good in what you are wearing; take pride in how you assemble each outfit each day. Walk tall in clothes which are well cared for and which make you feel good. It has been proven that dressing in this way improves your productivity and ability to relate to others. If you just throw any old thing on and don’t care how it sits or it is creased; it impacts how you feel about yourself, on how you work, and how you interact with colleagues and friends.
Classical colours and clothes that have demonstrated over time to work because they suit different occasions and body shapes, are a must in your cupboard. Have a staple of classics and add those one or two items which excite you, to make them trendier and lift your spirits.
Yours in promise and blogging
