Five Ways Your Clothes Are Influencing You

*Collaborative post.

Wherever you go, people tell you that if you look good, you feel good. They tell you to dress for what you want, not how you feel – so if you feel like you’re depressed on the inside, wear the brightest colours possible to feel better about it. To an extent, those pieces of advice are correct, even if you don’t believe in them! 

Many women in the world today have little to no confidence in their own fashion abilities. The thing is, when they choose certain things in their wardrobe, it doesn’t matter – they own it, anyway. Fashion plays a role in the way that we think, and if you didn’t know that before, you do now! You can shop now by colour and start wearing the outfits that make you feel fantastic. Or, you could learn a little bit about HOW your clothes are influencing you and own it from there. Let’s look at five ways your behaviour and thinking is ruled by your outfit choices of the day.

Five Ways Your Clothes Are Influencing You
  1. A sharp suit in the boardroom offers power and influence, and because you know that people will see you as influential, you act in that way, too. If you associate high heels with looking sleek and tall, you’ll act like a tall person would (confident and willowy!). It’s like slipping into a costume for the stage: you’d act like a dinosaur if you were dressed like one!
  2. There is a good reason that employers like their staff to wear powerful suits. It associates with positive work and sophistication, which is what you will reflect about their brand. A tailored dress can offer more to those looking at you than a pair of jeans and a cami top can!
  3. Clothing has the power to boost your mood. You don’t need to rely on shopping to cheer up, of course, but you can feel the difference in yourself straight away when you slip into an outfit that makes you feel confident.
  4. What you wear to the gym can make your workouts more effective. You will work out better when you feel confident in what you wear. If you dress like a fitness industry pro, you’re going to act like one, which makes your workouts more effective, too!
  5. Whether you want to know or not, your clothing is a confidence booster! What you wear makes you feel great about yourself, which boosts your confidence in ways you may not have imagined. Whenever you have felt confident in life, think about what you were wearing at the time. It’s likely that every time you rock that outfit, you will feel great about it. It’s why it’s called a “lucky” outfit! 

 

Your clothes will influence how you feel about yourself, the world around you and how you feel on the inside. Don’t be afraid to buy the clothing that really makes you feel happy – it will reflect in your mood and in the way you treat others, too. It’s important to feel secure and confident, no matter what.

Has Instagram taken over fashion blogging?

Since the Instagram showed up, life on the web has never been the same. Instagram has pretty much taken over the whole world. It is like we have all gone mad for the gram! Back in the early days of my blogging, fashion blogs were fun to follow and keep up with it. I had a few fashion bloggers I really liked and they inspired me to create my personal style posts. However, many of them have now abandoned their fashion blogs and only focus on their Instagram pages. Which brings me to the question behind this post – Has Instagram taken over fashion blogging?

I have had a love and hate with Instagram from the start and it is because it is the fakest social media platform ever! The fakery is so annoying but I need to have a presence on them because it is so popular at the moment. If I had my way, I won’t even bother with the social media platform, but my feelings with Instagram tend to change on and off, so who knows how I feel about it next year.

 

Has Instagram taken over fashion blogging?

It is sad to see Instagram has fully taken over fashion blogging. The fashion blogs I fell in love with many years ago are hardly updated these days. All they do is post their outfits on the gram and who would blame them. Blogging takes a lot more work and effort. It is a lot easier to just post images on Instagram with a brief caption and hashtags. They don’t have to worry about SEO and all the other blog related issues. Promoting their images on Instagram plus their following is sure to get them a lot of engagement on their posts and if all that fails, they can easily cheat their way. This is not the case with blog posts so it is easy to see why fashion blogs are now neglected and attention is now firmly on Instagram.

I do miss the good old days though. The days were fashion blogs were fun to watch. I could check on my bookmarked fashion blogs and get daily dose of fashion inspiration. Personal outfit posts and fashion news were my favourite kind of posts to read. These blogs taught me some of the things I now know when it comes to being a better blogger. It is sad to see these blogs are all gone. It would be nice to bring back the good old days of blogging.

Change is inevitable and we have to embrace it. It looks like Instagram is here to stay and it has changed a lot over the years as well with more changes scheduled to unfold. Change is part of life and as bloggers we have to embrace new social media platforms that are popular with the general public. The one thing I won’t ever do is neglect this part of the web though. Social media platforms come and go. They are free to use but can be taken away any minute. That thought keeps me grounded and focused on those things that really matter.
