When writing this blog, I conducted a little research of my own. I asked a few of my female work friends – what’s the secret to being confident? Some said an optimistic outlook towards life, while some others said financial stability. But that’s true for everyone, right? When digging a little deeper, most of my “power group” told me that sometimes a right shade of lipstick, a killer pair of heels, a new hair cut or even an amazing arm candy to flaunt makes the day brighter, and gives them the confidence the face the world. A few even admitted to opting for superhero Tees when they need to be their own saviors for the day ahead. As the old adage goes, “clothes make the man.” Turns out it’s true for women as well!
As fashion has evolved over the decades, it has played an important role in empowering women. Sure clothes and accessories can make you look pretty outwardly, but they also make one feel good about themselves. There are times when you need that extra boost of confidence, and a favorite pair of heels or stunning dress is just what you need to rock that work presentation or a date. Remember when Julia Roberts was all of us when she went on a shopping spree in “Pretty woman?” The scene isn’t etched in our memories just because of the fashionable stuff, but because of the transformation she goes through that was nothing short of divine.
