Style Confidence


I've not always had style confidence. It's something that has evolved with time. There have been days when I have lacked the confidence to pull off certain looks.

One of the things that helps to boost your style confidence is feeling good in yourself. If you feel good in yourself, you will feel good in what you wear. I honestly believe self-belief and a healthy body image makes a huge difference with what you choose to wear and how to choose to wear it.


Alongside with feeling good about yourself in order to boost your style confidence, wearing what suits you is really important. I have read a plethora of style books (stay tuned for a post about my favourites!) which explain the different body types and what clothes suit each one. When you find a style that flatters you, stick to it! Buy different colours and experiment with patterns and prints as well to add variety to your wardrobe.


Here's what I do. I find I enjoy wearing skirts and dresses more than pants as I find them to be most flattering on my body shape. I often choose A-line skirts and dresses because I know they suit me. I steer clear of anything that is too clingy or narrow. Now that I know what I like and what I feel good in, it's a no-brainer when it comes to shopping. I have even bought skirts online (my gorgeous Yeojin Bae skirt is one of them). I could never do that with pants!

In summary, believing in yourself helps your confidence , alongside having a healthy body image. Knowing what looks great on you is the final step in gaining the style confidence you need in order to rock any look you want to achieve! 

Keep being fabulous!

Yours in style,

  4. I agree whole-heartedly. Self confidence is a big key is looking fabulous. You carry yourself well and you can almost pull off any look. But I am also a big believer in dressing to suit your body shape. You don't always have to wear the latest trends if they don't suit you. If you do, you may end up looking not trendy at all if the clothing doesn't suit your body shape. Find what's best for you and work that.
