Choose your design. Not everything that is fashionable is appropriate for every figure. Pick outfits that are comfortable and at the same time enhance your silhouette.
Be aware of your age. Contrary to popular belief, dressing like a teenager when youíre in your thirties does not make you look younger. Dressing according to your age will make you more attractive if you pay attention to details like color, fabric, and style.
Pay attention to the inside. It doesnít matter how stunning you might look, if you carry around the extra baggage of unforgiveness, resentment, envy, prejudice and hatred, they will show up in your interactions with others. Be sure to spend some time every day in quiet reflection on how to become a better woman and how you can empower other women to do the same.

|I put so much pressure on myself to look good, however keeping up with fashion these days can be overwhelming. A lot of times when I get up in the morning I wish I could just put on sweats and a tee shirt everyday because of how much effort I feel it takes for me to look good. I like how this article talks about dressing good to feel good. Its true, when I force myself to put in a little bit of effort, my confidence rises a little. I'm 5'4 with very large breasts, so finding the right look can be tricky at times. I really appreciate this article. I didn't think I would be interested in the topic until I started reading it.|
|I am going to start focusing on my assets. Its so funny how women think. If we have straight fine thin hair we want bouncy thick curly hair. If we have no breasts we save up to by some. I'm honestly looking in to Doctors right now. And yet four of my girlfriends that have large breasts have gotten a reduction. I can't wear certain things because I have no breasts, and some of my girlfriends envy me not having to wear a bra. This article is great.|
|It seems like every time I go to get dressed there is always one piece missing. Either the jeans and the top are great but I don't have the shoes. Or the shoes and top work but I don't have the slacks. I wish whoever wrote this article would take me shopping. I need help. Every time I decide I'm going to buy some clothing that is more my age, I decide I want to look like a woman you know. . .I go into the store, I get all overwhelmed and end up buying the same immature clothing I alway do. How should I stay on track and focus on the things I really need that I can match up with other things to look and feel good. Does anyone know.|
|Cambria - I agree. It's easy to get overwhelmed in stores. What I try to do is remember what I went in there to buy. Sometimes I will even do research online so I know exactly what the store has, and therefore cannot get sidetracked. Also, I would pack your closet with the basics. This is my problem because it's not as fun to buy plain black shirts etc. But once you have it, then you can go crazy buying items that are more fun.|
