Let’s face it, most of us are not at our ideal weight or body type. Whether we are curvy, thin, or athletic we may not be happy with ourselves. I’m here to let you know that no matter your body type you can be happy with yourself. All it takes is a bit of self confidence.
I know, I know, you’re thinking that there is no way gaining self confidence is easy and you’re right, it’s not. I can tell you, however, that gaining self confidence starts with how you present yourself and how you do that starts with the way you dress.
You look good, you feel good is not just a myth! Have you ever been having a rough week so you throw on your favorite outfit, throw your hair in a top knot, and that perfect shade of lipstick and all your bad feelings just drift away? Maybe you should treat every day that way and then you’ll have less bad days and more good ones. People will be able to literally see your confidence on the outside and those compliments will help boost how you feel on the inside.
I realize that finding your own personal “look” is not necessarily the easiest thing in the world. Start out by what you think you like on others or how you would like to dress. Personally, I’m all about that comfy/cute thing but you might be a girl that wants to look professional or sporty or hippy. Just look around you and find that girl whose style you’re obsessed with and try to emulate i on yourself. It might be an athlete, a singer, an actress, your favorite beauty/fashion blogger, or just some girl that you crossed paths with. If you’ve ever thought, “I would love to dress like that,” then do it! That is where you start and then you make the style your own.
I’ve gathered a few examples of different body types and what I think is chic on them if you are lacking in ideas. Note: I do not own these images.
For the thin girls:
For the curvy girls:
For the athletic girls:
It would do everyone well to remember that not all two people are made or built the same. Just because you do not think of yourself as a typical “beauty” does not mean that you aren’t. First and foremost it is all about how you feel about yourself and not about how others perceive you. Once you love yourself then I promise, other’s will love you just the same.
As always, if you need me for fashion advice I am here! Until next time my lovelies, remember that you are wonderful just the way you are. Xoxo
