A designer dress or scrumptious shoes are great but they won't do anything for your sense of style unless you can wear them with confidence.
Women are bombarded with images of super skinny, gorgeous supermodels these days but looking good is not about being a stick insect or a Barbie doll.
Have you ever admired a woman at work, on the street or at party for her sheer sense of style? Yet she can be wearing something as simple as jeans and a T-shirt. So why does she look so good?
Because she knows how to carry herself with confidence and ease having come to terms with her own looks and finding out what suits her in the style stakes.
A good posture is essential to showing off your great outfits. Standing tall, with your head held high is the best way to exude pure confidence.
There are many ways these days to get a better posture and some of the best ways are easy accessible. Pilates, yoga, the Alexander Technique, T'ai Chi and meditation are all ways of not only dramatically improving your posture but also boosting your sense of well being which, after some practice, will shine through for others to clearly see.
Flicking through fashion magazines, surfing the internet and watching celebrity style programmes will all give you ideas of what kind of signature fashion style you are looking for.
Highlighting areas about yourself which you like will boost your confidence so if you've got great legs go for skin tight jeans or great mini skirts, if you love your waist think fitted tops, if it's your bum that tops the charts for you then show it off with tight trousers and clingy skirts and dresses. Everyone has something they love about themselves so show it off, don't hide it.
An added bonus of exuding confidence is that it's also sexy and you'll find more people are attracted to you because they want what you've got!
Confidence is also timeless so you can look great at any age think about Cameron Diaz, Reece Witherspoon, Rihanna, Eva Longoria, Halle Berry, Goldie Hawn, Meryl Streep- they're all more than 30 years old, some even in their sixties, yet they exude style and confidence because they are comfortable in their own skins.
If you don't feel confident about what suits you then there is the option of hiring a stylist, like all the celebs do, so they can work with you to make you look sensational everyday with ease.
Finding your own inner peace goes hand in hand with finding your outward sense of style so that you'll be turning heads in no time, so what are you waiting for?
