Don't underestimate the power of dressing up.

The economy may be down but don't underestimate the power of dressing up. When you feel good about yourself, it's contagious and everyone around you benefits from your good choices and confidence. It can be that simple.

We’re not talking power dressing or expensive dressing we’re talking about the powerful and uplifting effect of keeping up appearances and dressing always in the colours and shapes that enhance YOU. It is conscious and informed styling, making you look good and feel confident.

Spending time, not always money on the way we look and present ourselves in demanding economic times is a sound investment. The confidence helps you become more prepared for things outside of your control. You do not need to spend much – in fact we can often shop iin the back of our closets to find some real treasure and give our image a lift.  Sustainable dressing is fashion dressing and you may be surprised to find what is lurking in the back of your wardrobe.  Sometimes it may need an alteration, shorten the skirt or top, change the buttons, team your former suit jacket with new wide jeans, add some pieces of interest to a plain jacket, let your imagination go.    

If you feel you need to buy something to give your wardrobe a lift, make sure what you buy is perfect for you.  Mistakes are expensive.  When you want to spend wisely and carefully be sure what you buy deserves a place in your wardrobe.  Keep to the colour and style rules, once you know what works for you, you can’t go wrong. 

“Shopping” in your own wardrobe is a good start, you may be surprised what you find hidden away or what you look at in a new light.
