1.Take the time to dress well. Take the time to pick out clothes that are comfortable and that make you happy to look at in the mirror. Remember that being comfortable doesn’t mean dressing like you just rolled out of bed. At the same time, remember that being chic doesn’t mean chasing every trend: never wear something that doesn’t suit your body just because it’s in style.
- Be stylish and learn how to dress for your body type as a woman or as a man. Choose colors and cuts that make you appear thinner.
- Always dress for the occasion. Going to a movie? Be casual; you'll just look like you're trying too hard in your prom dress. And the same is said for going out on the town – leave your Converse at home and take a moment to dress to impress.
Identify the desired look you'd like to have. Do you want to be a professional? Business casual? A skater? This will make it easier to determine your priorities. However, make sure you're not mimicking a friend's style –often times it won't work for you due to different body sizes and shapes.
- Don't be afraid to look silly. Looking good and having a designer's eye can be learned skills but they often come from trial and error. If you get complimented or if you feel good, you're on the right track.
