In a world where beauty is the one of the biggest double standards, it can be hard to find your inner-glow. By the word “inner-glow”, I mean your self-confidence and pride that sets you apart from the other person. Many people try to deny that image is not everything and character is most important. Well, yes character is important, but image is in fact just as important if not more important.
Your image is the first impression that you place upon people. It is the first thing that people observe when you walk into a room. When you go on an interview, there is a dress code that you should abide by. Why? Because image is important. It sets the tone for a business, event, or organization. We as humans judge by a person’s appearance, and that goes the same for our surroundings.
In my opinion, I don’t think caring about image is superficial. Taking pride in your look shows that you want people to respect you and that you are confident in who you are. Superficiality to me is only discussing high-end labels and caring about having people around you that can afford lavish and luxurious lifestyles. However, caring about your look will let the world to see that you are an intelligent and important person too.
There are some people who are afraid to upgrade their style because they don’t want to “stand out” or they just don’t have any idea how to. There are simple ways to upgrade your look that will still go in line with your personality. If you are a bold person that loves to stand out, there are many ways to do so.
Adding a few accessories to a basic look is a great way to upgrade your image. A nice bold necklace is my favorite. Earthbound Trading Company has gorgeous accessories for ladies. You can also add a pop of color to your outfits by wearing a nice bold lipstick. I love red lipstick! If you aren’t a fan of lipstick or makeup at all, make your eyes stand out by adding a little bit of eyeliner. There are great tutorial videos on YouTube for makeup.
Shoes and purses are my favorite accents to an outfit! I know men don’t carry purses, but there are nice briefcases and bags you can style with any professional look. ASOS has a wide variety of shoes and bags for both men and women. Not to mention, their great variety of stylish clothes to add to your wardrobe.
