How to Identify & Play Up to Your Strengths When Dressing UpMar 22, 2023
Of course! Dressing to highlight your beautiful features and strengths is essential to personal style. You can boost your confidence and make a great impression by emphasising your best features. Very importantly, when you are aware of what suits you and brings out the best in you, you can also avoid wardrobe items that are not flattering. This is, in fact, the first step to curating a sustainable and stylish wardrobe, of which you'll then have a wardrobe filled with interchangeable capsules and avoid buying items you won't wear or use.

Here are some tips on how to play up your strengths when dressing:
Identify Your Strengths
The first step to dressing to highlight your strengths is identifying them. What do you like most about your body or your style? Is it your toned arms, your shapely legs, your luscious hair, your beautiful curves, or your captive sensual eyes? Take some time to reflect on your strengths and make a list of them. This will help you focus on what to highlight when picking out your outfits or when you makeup.
Always, always, always... choose Clothes That Flatter Your Body
Once you have identified your strengths, the key to great style and a sustainable wardrobe is to buy only clothes and wear clothes that flatter your beautiful unique body shape. For example, if you have toned legs, you can opt for shirts you can wear skirts or shorts that hit at the right length, or fitted trousers to showcase them. If you have strong broad shoulders, wear halters, scoop, or wide V-neck to show off. Wearing a top with a wider neckline will draw the eye down and balance out your proportions.
Use Colours to Accentuate & Highlight Your Best Features
Colours and patterns can be used to highlight your best features. If you have bright eyes, you can wear colours that complement them. Would you like to learn more about wearing colours? You may check out my previous blog posts:

Accessories can also be used to highlight your beautiful features. For example, if you have beautiful hair, you can wear hair accessories or style your hair to draw attention to it.
If you have a long neck, you can wear necklaces that sit at the right length. Accessories can also be used to add personality to your outfit and showcase your creativity.
Remember, the most important thing is to feel good in what you're wearing. When you feel good, and you love the way you look, you'll look confident and good about yourself, too!
