Headed to a job interview? Gearing up for the first date? Or just feeling like you need that extra bit of oomph to face the day? We got you. Let’s face it, even the most self assured among us need a confidence boost every once in awhile. To get you looking good and feeling great, we’ve compiled 5 of our favorite tips and tricks to bring out your inner badass.
1. COMFORT IS KEY TO KICKING ASS
Whether you’re dressing it up or keeping it casual, if you’re uncomfortable in your clothes it will show. Our favorite trick to rocking a button up without feeling buttoned-up is to leave the last button undone. Not only does this leave a little extra room in the hips for us ladies, but you’ll feel effortless while still looking polished.
2. BE TOTES PREPARED
It doesn’t hurt to have a little extra bag real estate for a few of the essentials. From changes in the weather to jotting down that mega-babe’s phone number, a little preparation can put your mind at ease as you head out into the world.
3. LOOK LIKE A BOSS TO FEEL LIKE A BOSS
Need a little extra boost of confidence? Get dressed like the badass babe you are. Leaving the house looking fresh-to-death is like an automatic attitude adjustment. Remember: there’s a reason they call it a power suit.
4. LET YOUR TEE DO THE TALKING
‘Cause sometimes you just gotta spell it out for them. Whatever slogan, motto, or expression gets you pumped up, a graphic tee lets the world know: “I’m one fierce f*cking female who’s not afraid to speak her mind.”
5. GIVE YOURSELF A BOOST
When shoulders back and chin up just aren’t cutting it, throw on your favorite pair of platforms and stand tall. Sometimes all it takes is a few extra inches to give you an entirely new perspective. Pro tip for the heel-shy: not only are flatforms super on-trend, they give you that added height without sacrificing comfort.
