1. Find Your Style Vibe
I could wear sweatshirts and joggers all day, everyday although I also love to wear boyfriend jeans and white shirts , mini skirts and every other thing I love. It is really important you find the vibe you love and it may vary based on the occasion. Are you more into chic fashion? Casual? Korean Fashion, Casual wears? Cowgirl? Bohemian or vintage?
Learn the colors that suit you and the ones you are comfortable wearing. When thinking of this place things like fabric, Overall style, and details in mind.
Personally, I don’t like gowns made with weighty fabric. There are definitely some clothings you love so much, find out why you like them.
You’ll be more confident when you are putting on something you really love and with more confidence comes the smile and there you have it! You can now have mirror say “Fame is they beauty majesty and you are the fairest of them all” when you ask “Magic mirror the wall, who is the fairest one of all?”
