Are there really style essentials every woman should have? I think so but mine are different than they were several years ago and likely different from yours. Having the “right” handbag was important at 31 – at 61, not so much.
Here are a few essentials that I believe are universal and help all women feel good about themselves.
It’s crucial to wear clothes that fit our bodies, well. Clothes that bunch, bind or dig in, aren’t doing you any favor. Only wear clothes that feel comfortable for the body you have today…not squeezed into something that fit 5 pounds ago. Put them away and wear what fits now. If you need to buy clothes that fit, do it. You deserve it!
It’s essential to wear clothes that make you feel good, emotionally. Many garments are utilitarian and serve as basics we build our outfits around. Whenever possible, reach for things that make you happy. Whether it’s an accessory or pretty lipstick, choose things that make you feel good and as close to happy as you can get.
Wear What Sends the Message You Want
Our clothes tell the world who we are so you need to choose ones that send the right message. If you’re not confident you’re outfit is sending the right message, step back and examine why. Is it more somber than you are? Sexier than you like to portray? Frumpier than you want to look? Check your image in a full-length mirror, from all sides, and ask what message it sends and how you can fix it.
We need to dress to please ourselves in our changing bodies. When I needed the larger size in these pants, I didn’t hesitate to go up a size. It’s only a label and I refuse to let a number on a garment tag define how I feel about myself.
