5 Ways To Dress Like An Empowered, Confident Woman


These are the 5 essential things that you need to remember and you’re good to go. Whether you’re wearing jeans or an Oscar dela Renta gown, you’ll stand out in a crowd full of stars.

First, have confidence. It’s just like putting on your makeup. On one hand, if you put too much you’ll end up looking like a clown, on the other, putting too little could make you look too plain. You’d want to stand out but make sure you don’t overdo your confidence because you don’t want to look conceited. Just be yourself but more with an “I’m ready for anything” attitude. Take note that confidence is always the key, whether you’re wearing makeup or not, if you show the right amount of confidence then it can take you to places.

Next, wear a smile on that pretty face of yours; it works better than perfume. Trust me, it makes a difference. You will free yourself from the “chronic bitch face” syndrome and people will tend to feel more comfortable to be around you. Your smile is truly disarming. So lose the frown and say cheese!

Third, you can never go wrong with the little black dress. Never lose who you are even when people around you are pushing you to the edge. Let the haters hate because their opinion about you shouldn’t matter. What you should focus on is your attitude. Handle your stress and critics well. Always have your emotions intact. People don’t need to see you snap back at a person who’s baiting you to fight. Remember, whoever’s trying to bring you down is already below you. So stay classy.

Fourth, wear stilletos. It’s a symbol of empowerment. I’ve always adored Meryll Streep’s role in the Devil wears Prada. How she built an empire and became a successful, independent woman. Although, it doesn’t have to be Prada for you to succeed. You’ll just have to, like Marilyn Monroe once said, “Give the girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world.” – and her words could not be more true. The whole world is wide open for you. There are plenty of opportunities that awaits you. Be Fierce. Don’t be afraid to stand-up and be in control of your life. There’s nothing more sexy than that.

Last, pick the right bag and lose all the excess baggage. Bring only what you need. You better start letting go of the stuff that is holding you back. It’s not cool if you carry that excess baggage everywhere. So it’s about time to take out whatever it is that’s been dragging you down. You can’t keep a job or even a man if you can’t let go of the past. Don’t dwell on the mistakes that you made and the other negative things that happened to you. Never let them hold you back. Look forward to the bright future ahead of you. If your baggage is too heavy, you won’t be able to move forward. So focus on what’s good in your life. Be the girl that brings a little bit of sunshine wherever she goes and you’re ready for the world.
