Blake Lively said « The most beautiful thing you can wear is confidence ». I really believe in these words and think of them when I do not feel at my best. Wearing clothes in a confident way really makes the difference. It is obvious that a woman who believes in herself will be more attractive, even in a less charming outfit, than a woman with low self-confidence.
It is important to have a positive image of yourself. In order to achieve this, I try to take care of my skin, my hair, the clothes I put on and so on… My constant goal is to be healthy and look natural, hence fake eyelashes, plastic surgery and even makeup do not interest me at all. I may apply lipstick from time to time, or concealer to hide one or two imperfections, but on a daily basis I am makeup free.
Playing with highlighting your special features is a great way to feel confident but one has to be careful not to show off by going to extremes. Walking with confidence is no less important so the posture has to be straight and elegant for a woman.
Finally, standing out from the crowd also has a substantial influence on gaining self-confidence. I no longer care about common style rules because it blocks my creativeness. All in all, wear whatever you like as long as you feel confident in it!
