Ever wondered why slipping into certain clothes can make you feel blah? And on the other hand, putting on your favourite summer dress instantly makes feel happy and more confident! Well, believe it or not, some clothes and accessories have the power to instantly make you comfortable in your own skin and boost your confidence. Here are 12 such fashion items that will make you feel more confident about yourself!
1. A Go-To Dress
We don’t mean a fancy dress that you’d wear on a date night. This could be just a simple shift dress that you wear on a Wednesday, to get through the week in style. There’s a reason why dresses make us feel so good about ourselves. They’re easy to slip into and obviously, we all get a compliment or two when we wear a dress, don’t we? There ain’t no woman who doesn’t like some extra attention! *Wink*POPxo Recommends:Black Mesh Lace Skater Dress (Rs 1,883)
2. Heels That Are Comfy!
Because let’s admit it, wearing heels psychologically makes us feel super stylish - provided they’re comfortable! Otherwise it’ll be a painful task that you’ll want to get done with as soon as you can. Wearing heels automatically boosts our confidence by making us look slender and giving us a reason to move our hips sexily as we walk. The few extra inches are an added bonus!
