Why save your best clothes for a special occasion?

Do you remember being told as a child that you must save your best dress for best? I remember in those days we only one best outfit but now days that is not the case. I guess it’s so easy to just pull on anything if you are working from home. Why save your best clothes for a special occasion.

Why save your best clothes for a special occasion

As so many of us are working from home now, I guess it is easy to just pull on any old thing as no one can see you. BUT how does that make you feel? I work from home and on the days when I am not out seeing my clients, networking, or seeing my friends what do I wear? I like to dress as if I am going to work and by that I do not mean that I must wear office wear. You could still be in your  smart jeans with a nice blouse or jumper. It does not feel right for me to be wearing my track bottoms and a baggy top. It also tells my brain that I am working and puts me in work mode.

I have been told that some people wear a nice blouse or shirt on the top but track bottoms on the bottom for all their zoom meetings. That would not work for me because if I do not feel right, I will not be able to concentrate. Clothes mean so much to me because of the way they make me look and feel. If you look and feel fantastic in the clothes that you are wearing you can feel like you can take on the world.

In the mornings I stand in front of my wardrobe and say to myself what would do I feel like wearing today?  When I am lacking in energy, I will choose something in a bright colour. However, If I am feeling like I need some love in my life I might choose a soothing green, or muted pink. These are the heart chakra colours. On blog writing day when I need some inspiration, I would choose a blue colour as blue is the colour of logic and communication.

You deserve to look and feel fabulous every day

You deserve to feel fantastic every day and you can do that by wearing your nice clothes. Even wearing your favourite earrings can make a huge difference. Just by buying a new lipstick can brighten your face and bring out the colour of you top. I think what I am trying to say is do not spend every day in your scruffs. If you have nice clothes wear them, not only will you feel nice, but you will be more productive as well.

Do not forget to wear colour as well

Colour will bring it all together, colour is going to give you the energy you need and wearing the correct colours for you will bring out the best in you. If you need any help in finding the right colours for you go to my website for more details on my colour consultations, or give me a call contact details at the foot of this blog. I hope you have found this blog useful and that you are going to enjoy wearing your nice clothes every day and not saving them for best.

Do you remember your parents saying to you do not wear that now, save it for best? I know that mine did. Now I am saying to you enjoy your best clothes and wear them, don’t save them for a special day, as very day is special. The picture I have chosen to put on this blog is one taken with one of my favourite dresses. Here are my tips on how to dress yourself happy.

Six months ago, you may have been happy in your tracksuit, but now the new season has arrived. We are ready to start dressing up again and to dress yourself happy.

Dopamine Dressing

What is Dopamine Dressing? Google says, “The practice of wearing bright colours in an extroverted style in order to lift one’s spirit.” The concept is simple: choose colourful and fun clothes in the morning, do not skimp on extravagance and enjoy the triggering of those happy chemicals in your brain. I have found an article here in the Guardian with their take on it. Personally, I think it is about choosing to dress in a way that suits you, can give your mood a welcome lift.

Not everyone wants to wear vivid bright colours and you do not need too either. It is about finding which colours suit you best. Also, it is about being aware of which colours will give you energy and make you feel playful and which ones will drain your energy. This I covered in a previous blog. Here I talked about which colours you were choosing to where in lock down. I have shown here the properties of each colour and when to wear each one which you may find useful.

“No matter what shape, size or age, dressing for yourself can enhance wellness and overall positivity” Says stylist Lucie Clifford

When you are wearing something that you love and that you know brings out the best in you, how do you feel?  Fantastic!! Yes, if you know that you look good it makes you feel good too. It gives you confidence to be who you want to be and be the best version of yourself. I like to do that by wearing colour. I am a Spring and therefore able to wear the bright spring colours, but I also like to wear some of the autumn ones too. If I am relaxing at home, I don’t want to be wearing bright orange or red! So, I might water that down to a soft coral.

Therefore, I love what I do. Showing ladies how to look and feel fantastic. By wearing the correct colours to tone with your skin tone and styles that flatter you shape really can make a difference. If you would like to find out more please visit my website  for more details or give me a call I would love to hear from you.

Find your own sense of style

I think what is most important is to find your own style. As Oscar Wild said, ” Be yourself, everybody else is already taken” Be your own authentic self in whatever form that is. If you prefer to be casual, then swear casual clothes. If you are a classic girl then wear classic clothes. It shows your personality and who you are, and people will love you for that. Do not wear clothes you think you ought to wear, that make you feel uncomfortable and it will show. What you wear shows your personality so have fun with it. Play around with new styles that you see others wearing and see how they look on you. Remember confidence is found within, but a great outfit can and will enhance your self-love.

My top tips on how to dress yourself happy

Dress yourself happy and improve your mindset. If you feel happy in yourself, you give off and attract the same back to you. So, it is a win win scenario. Do not save your best clothes for best. Wear them and enjoy them as it will make you feel good. I have been self-isolating after returning from a break in Spain with some friends. It would have been so easy to dress down every day but I chose not to. I still wore some mascara and lipstick and wore normal clothes and not result to a track suit every day. Why? Because it makes me feel better about myself.

How to choose the right clothes for your style personality

How to choose the right clothes for your style personality

This is something that I cover in detail when you have a style consultation with me. We look at your personality, lifestyle, what you do for a living, and how you like to feel in your clothes. What type of clothes that you like to wear, considering the fabrics and styles that appeal to you? Body shape is a big element in what looks good on you, but that is only a part of the ingredients to choosing the best look for you. Visit my website for more details on my Style Analysis Consultations.

How to choose the right clothes for your style personality

Just as certain traits go to make up our individual personalities, so your unique style personality is made up of leanings, preferences, tendencies and aversions! There is no right or wrong with style personality, but it will profoundly affect the types of clothes you like to wear and feel most comfortable in. It can also have a bearing on how you want to wear colours.

You may have clothes which you know are in a good colour for you, but still they never seem to get worn – you put them on but take them off again because somehow they don’t feel right?  Have ever tried something on in a shop and decided, ‘No, it’s just not ME’.  And that is the crux of it, because the garment is not in keeping with your own style personality.

How to choose the right clothes for your style personality

Have a look at these personalities and see which one most resonates with you. You may be a combination of several, but one will sit with you more than the others. This is only a small snapshot of each personality type but it will give you an idea of what I am talking about.

Classical lady – who chooses to dress in comfortable clothes rather than following fashion. She goes for investment pieces which are timeless, she will have an organised wardrobe but not huge.

Yummy Mummy – she is a perfectionist, has a keen eye for detail and cannot tolerate mess. She is immaculately turned out and often seems overdressed by others. Everything has to match, and she loves her designer labels.

Sporty – this lady is always on the go and she has high energy. She likes to keep fit and prefers to wear unfussy clothes that allow her to move easily. She prefers casual but smart and will have a wash and go hairstyle.

Flamboyant – this lady loves to make a statement with outfits and accessories and enjoys being the centre of attention. She wears strong contrasts and vivid colours, animal print and colourful combinations.

Retro – The retro lady needs her own space and are often sensitive, she has her own unique approach to personal style. She does not want to look like anyone else. She is creative and will often take high street items and change them to creative her own distinctive look.

How to choose the right clothes for your style personality

Do you resonate with any of these? As I said before you may have tenancies for several, but one will be more dominate. Everyone has a unique blend of style personalities which makes choosing styles and fabrics to suit them.
