There are some people who believe that in these more ‘woke’ and liberal times we are living in, there is much less pressure on both men and women to have to dress up and follow a smart or formal dress code if they don’t want to. Of course, the clothing that you wear is your choice at the end of the day, and I’m not here to order you one way or another, but what I can do is express an existing opinion that dressing smartly and well still counts for something in 2019! Here is why it is important to dress well today.
1. Good Impression
You only get one chance at making a good first impression, so why not do your best and make sure that you are well dressed for the occasion? People notice when you have made an effort, and they will respond positively and remember you in a positive way.
There is no doubting that looking in the mirror and seeing that you look like a million dollars is something that can give you a huge confidence boost. You shouldn’t be dressing well for other people, you should be dressing well for yourself too.
We are all human and we are all shallow enough to feel great when people pay us compliments, and the truth is that you are more likely to receive compliments when you look amazing!
4. Surprise MEets
It’s a small world and you never know who you might end up running into on any given day, so picture the one ex or old friend that you would have to bump into looking a mess, and dress with them in mind!
5. Express Yourself
Don’t miss out on having clothing as an opportunity to express yourself. You can show a lot of personality and character in how you dress, so make the effort to give people a visual impression of who you are straight away.
6. Creativity Boost
When you are dressed well and feeling confident as a result, you are much more likely to feel inspired and motivated to do something or create something. Dressing in casual clothes or pajamas can be a real enthusiasm sapper!
When you are out and about and trying to get things done, you will find that you are much more productive in your efforts when you are dressed to impress. It could even be because people you are interacting with are responding better to you.
To put it simply, you deserve to feel fabulous! If getting dressed up and receiving a boost to your confidence is something that you love feeling, then why wouldn’t you want to do it as often as possible?
9. Stand out
The world is full of people who look, talk, and act the same, so take your clothing as an opportunity to stand out from the crowd and make an impact.
And lastly, dressing up is fun, it’s as basic as that! We could all do with a little more fun in our lives, and if you can gain it from something as simple as dressing well, why wouldn’t you?
