As a woman, I know how hard we can be on ourselves. But, as an image consultant and style coach, I see the struggles some women face regarding confidence and self-esteem. Now, I know it’s easier said than done–but we need to own our style and use our confidence as our superpower!
As professional women, we must define how we want to show up to the world. We then must manage ourselves to ensure we represent our desired image as we position ourselves for success. I’m not saying you have to be best dressed all the time, but we definitely can use our wardrobe as a tool and strategy to position ourselves and send the right message. Therefore, keep reading to learn how to overcome feeling insecure about your image and personal style.
Society puts a lot of pressure on us to be perfect and likable. But forget what they want from us! You are worthy of every chance in the world, and there is power in being secure in who you are and what you embody. I help women learn what makes them look and feel their best, and how to use their professional image to position them for success. However, it’s important to cut ourselves some slack once in awhile and give some extra love.
This is a hard one. Social media has made it difficult not to compare ourselves–but we need to focus on our own individual beauty. What looks good on one person isn’t going to look good on everybody, and that is okay! When we act and dress in a way that is a true representation of who we are–we can become genuinely happy in our skin.
Be honest with yourself. What is making you feel insecure? In my opinion, honesty with self is the best policy. Is it your hair, your makeup routine, your current wardrobe? Identify what the “it” is so you can accurately get ready to make some changes.
When you look good, you feel good, and you are worth it my friend. This can mean anything and it is completely up to you in terms of how you choose to take care of your physical appearance. It can be time or money, just know that you only live once so commit to working on becoming your absolute best.
When you have clear goals and a plan on how to achieve them–you become unstoppable. You want your plan to be unique to you. If you are a person that likes to take their time, create a list and strategy that has small steps. This way you can celebrate each win! If you are a person, that like to get it done ASAP! Create a plan and timeline that works for your schedule so you don’t get overwhelmed and reach your goals.
Do you find yourself feeling insecure about your clothes and how they fit? Do you feel like you don’t look the part at work or in your personal life? Or, do you struggle to get dressed and feel confident?
I know it can be intimidating wearing our outfits around our colleagues, bosses, and friends. Especially since the dress codes have changed so much since Covid. However, we need to own our image and be proud of who we are. Once you are secure in yourself, your clothes will be a reflection of that and you will thrive in every aspect of your life.
The Polished Level Up Workshop is happening this next weekend and it covers everything you need to know, to develop a confident individual image and style!
