4 Reasons Why You Should Dress For Yourself Instead Of Others

Many times, we worry about whether the way we dress is accepted by other people in the society and put this over our own desires. This happens mostly among us women. Sometimes, we want to dress in a particular way but don’t because we think people will mock us or the society won’t accept us.

It’s time for us to begin to live in our own skin and dress for ourselves. Here are 4 reasons why:

1. You’ll be more comfortable
When you love what you’re wearing, you’ll be so much comfortable, even if what you love wearing is a great pair of heels. When you’re not worrying about what other people think or what they expect from you, you’ll feel more comfortable in your clothes and skin, which is always a positive!

2. No one really cares
It’s very hard for us to see this, but its the truth. Don’t let the voice inside your head tell you that everyone’s judging you. Be yourself. I know this is even harder for me as a celeb because I am more in the public eye than most people. But truth is many just want to things to gossip, write or blog about. If I put their desires above mine, I’d be dressing for them not me and that’s really not cool.

3. Don’t try to be someone else
It’s so hard living in someone else’s skin and if you try this, you’d realize that its totally worthless. Don’t dress because you want to please your friends, your colleagues, your admirers… One day you’d get tired of it and when you decide to dress for yourself, you’d be shocked to realize how it affects your relationships.

4. You’ll feel more confident
Overall, when you dress for yourself, you’ll start to feel happier and more confident on both your inward and outward appearances. You won’t be worried about what other people think of you, and you’ll be proud to be dressing for yourself instead of others!

SL Fabz, do you dress for yourself instead of anyone else? Do you have other reasons to add to this list?

Let’s share!

    no body dresses for themselves. its all bullshit when some body says that they dress for themselves. Everybody dresses to impress others.
