Why You Should Dress for Yourself Not a Man ...

By Teresa

We’ve all seen the articles that tell us how to dress to impress the men in our life. However, that couldn’t be farther from what we should do. There’s no reason why we should be dressing for men. As much as you want to please other people, you can’t please anyone more than yourself when it comes to your fashion sense. If you need some convincing to dress for yourself and no one else, you absolutely must check out this list.

1 You Know What Looks Best on You

There is no one on this Earth (except for maybe a select few stylists) who knows what is more flattering on your body than you do. You know your body better than anyone else, and you’ve been dressing your body for your whole life. No man knows what looks better on your body than you do!

2 You Know the Trends Better than Any Guy

Let’s be real here, ladies. No straight man is following women’s fashion trends, and if they are, they probably work in women’s fashion. If your guy tries to tell you that he doesn’t like what you’re wearing, remember that you know what’s on trend and he just has no idea!

3 If They Don’t like Your Clothes, They’re Not for You

On a more serious note, if a guy consistently talks down to you about what you’re choosing to wear and put on your body, you need to get rid of him. If what you’re wearing is such an issue in his life, he’s really just not the guy for you. It may seem tough, but it’s not really worth the frustration.

4 Your Opinion Matters Most

No matter what, your opinion matters more than anyone else. No matter who is telling you that you need to be dressing a certain way—whether it’s a man in your life, a friend, a relative, or even a fashion magazine, what you think of what you’re wearing is the only opinion that matters.

5 All You Need is Confidence

Confidence is key when it comes to whatever you’re wearing. If you’re wearing something with confidence, you’ll look like a million bucks, and no one will have anything negative to say about your look. Seriously, if you can walk into a room with confidence, you will own the room!

6 Sometimes Things Are Just Comfortable

Is there anything more annoying than someone who uses comfortable as an insult? What’s wrong with being comfortable? We shouldn’t have to sacrifice comfort for style, and sometimes, comfort is a million times more important than style. It’s okay to err on the side of comfort now and then, and don’t listen to anyone who tells you otherwise!

7 He’s Probably Not Paying Attention in the First Place

Let’s be honest here, girls. Most men aren’t paying attention to fashion that closely in the first place. They probably don’t even notice what you’re wearing half of the time; so don’t spend your life trying to please someone who’s not even paying attention to your fashion choices!

What is your biggest rule when it comes to fashion? Do you dress for you and no one else? Why do you refuse to dress for anyone else? Or why do you follow what other people want to see you wear? Let me know in the comments!
