We’ve all heard the saying, “Dress to Impress,” but how much merit do we give the motto?

You might think that it’s no big deal to wear sweatpants to class or your pajamas to the grocery store, but what happens when you need to ask your teachers for letters of recommendation or you run into a future employer in the cereal aisle? We would all like to believe that appearance doesn’t matter and that others won’t judge us for the way that we look, but it does matter and others do judge.

The goal should always be to look our best. Looking more polished will actually boost your confidence and make you happier. Not to mention, if you look put together, others will associate your composure on the outside with your internal composure, which will really help you obtain that letter or score a job interview.

Here are some key steps to help you look and feel more put together:

First, before we get into the apparel, it’s important to take care of your health and hygiene – staying active and clean are the simplest steps you can take to make the biggest impact on the way that you feel.

Now, it’s important to dress for our body types – some styles aren’t meant for everyone. It’s equally important to know your actual sizing – anything too big and you can look sloppy, anything too small is too revealing.

Finally, it’s imperative to dress appropriately for the occasion. Would you wear swimming shorts to a Black Tie event? Would you wear a prom dress to a funeral? Would you wear jeans to bed? Would you wear pajamas to the store?

  1. Great post. Short but direct. And it’s true, for sure. Dressing nice and more formal for my job makes me feel more confident and makes me feel ready for the day. I definently think it says a lot about you too, that people are worth you time enough to brush your hair for and match your top and scarf. Great points. 🙂

  3. I’m only speaking personally here, but I’ve noticed once I started taking care of myself, I felt a lot more confident. Before, I couldn’t even go to grocery stores without feeling self conscious and even gross. I definitely agree. Great read, thanks for sharing! 🙂

  4. “Oh please don’t judge a book by its cover ” , irrespective of how politically correct this statement may sound, but how exactly one is dressed up matters a lot ,especially for first impression…dressing up properly for any occasion automatically takes you half way to be in good books of others besides make you feel good for yourself.
