1.  CHANGE YOUR CLOTHES, CHANGE YOUR MIND

This may sound funny but have you noticed that what you wear affects your outlook?  Feeling unmotivated to exercise as you dress in your ragged same old work-out clothes?  Try putting on a great new set of exercise duds and see how much better you feel already!

 “Fashion is so close in revealing a person’s inner feelings and everybody seems to hate to lay claim to vanity so people tend to push it away. It’s really too close to the quick of the soul.”

 -Stella Blum

 2.  SHOW YOU CARE AND SO WILL OTHERS

Try shopping in a dress and heels instead of your ripped jeans and t-shirt.  Notice the response you receive from the salesperson.  If you make an effort other people will notice and you’ll reap the rewards with their attention.

“On the subject of dress almost no one, for one or another reason, feels truly indifferent:  if their own clothes do not concern them, somebody else’s do.” 

-Elizabeth Bowen

3.  DON’T GET STUCK IN A RUT

Do you dress in a “uniform” of sorts?  Dark bootleg jeans, and a white, beige or grey top and dark shoes. If  so, you know I am talking about you.  Try to explore a new look by changing up one item in your repetoire – a different silhouette of jeans,  a dress instead of pants, a different type of shoe.

“There’s room for the Gap, but the joy of dressing is an art. “
John Galliano

4.  HAVE FUN WITH DRESSING.

Try not to take it too seriously.  Embrace color – try a new hue you have never worn before.  I cannot tell you how many times someone has said to me “Well, you look great in that, you can get away with it.  I can’t.”  Why not?  Oh, maybe be cause you haven’t tried to “get away with it.”  Take a look and make it your own.  When everyone is wearing skinny jeans pull out your palazzo pants!

“Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary.”  -Cecil Beaton
