Hey there! In the past I’ve written a blog post about “Feeling Comfortable In Your Own Skin” which is a slight different approach than this post. On this post, I wanted to talk about reasons your style need you to love the skin you’re in. While there are MANY factors that affects not feeling good in your skin, one factor in particular is your personal style.
I’ve found that the older I get, the more I am loving the skin I’m in which helps with my style choices. I feel more free and open to try different styles and fashions. But it would be totally misleading if I didn’t say that this happens by working on how to love every bit of yourself no matter your flaws. It’s not an easy feat, but it is worth the work. When you’re too focused on what you don’t like about yourself, it makes it hard to dress yourself.
The reality is this, no one is perfect and we’ll always be a work in progress. In order to truly love who you are internally so that it shows externally, you’ll need to learn how to work with what you got and build on it. So I believed that giving you the reasons that you should would be helpful on your journey of progression. And when those transformations occur in your life (because they always do), you’ll just have to relearn all the reasons your style need you to love the skin you’re in.

Reason 1 It’s hard to look good when you don’t feel good. A huge part of your style depends on your confidence. You learn how to WEAR the clothing, and not allow the clothing to wear you.You could be wearing a rag, and if you know how to work that rag with confidence, you’ll have everyone else wanting to learn how to wear a rag too. Embracing your positive traits is a great way to start building the confidence you need to look and feel like your best self.
The true measure of confidence is a woman who understands her body and dresses as if she’s proud of it.
Reason 2 You’ll know what looks good on you once you learn to accept your body and weight. Don’t judge thyself. Loving on ourselves should happen at all stages of our lives. Identify your figure challenges and assets because they are all apart of what makes you, you. From there, focus on understanding what to wear according to your body shape and body type. Determining what silhouettes, fabrics and styles look best on your body will change your perception of yourself. You’ll realize that beauty comes in all sizes.
Reason 3 Without becoming self-aware, it makes it difficult to know what your style personality is. Wearing clothes that suit your personality ensures that you are comfortable and confident in how you appear. It helps to know what looks best on you by easily identifying clothing styles you like and dislike. A big part of dressing for your truest self is by maximizing your look based on what you know works for you.
Reason 4 It would be most helpful for you to focus on your internal issues so that you can make better external choices that fit best with you. Work out the issues that make you feel uncomfortable with yourself. Fixing those problematic thoughts and issues can change the way you see yourself. Becoming more comfortable with who you are can lead to new discoveries and growth. You will effortlessly dress the way you feel through exploration.
Reason 5 Being at peace with yourself and developing self-acceptance will avoid discontentment from others and the media. With so many social trends telling you how you should look in order to be accepted as beautiful is nonsense. Coming to terms with who you are and being proud of that is a great way to stand out as an individual. The world needs each and everyone of us to showcase our individuality proudly and one of those ways are through our personal style. Your personal satisfaction shows up in your style once you are content with who you are. And you get to challenge media depictions of what beauty looks like.
Reason 6 We are what we wear so the more open you are to wearing colors the brighter your mood will be. Colors have the power to make our souls feel good and make us approachable by others. By wearing more colors and knowing which of them looks good on you, there is more opportunity for you to flourish. More happy outfit accidents coming right up. Your wardrobe and mood thanks you in advance.
