Dressing Confidently

When it comes to how you dress, there are very few things more important than how it makes you feel. If you feel confident and comfortable in your clothes, you have the world in your hands. However, it’s been easy to have gotten into a rut during quarantine. To an extent, all of us have. If pajamas or sweat suits are all you have the energy to wear, so be it! We’re all still in the middle of a pandemic, it’s perfectly fine to dress purely for your comfort.


Throughout quarantine, I can count on both hands how many garments I’ve bought (and I can count on one hand how many times I’ve actually worn them!). But for the stuff I have bought, I’ve focused on quality. I have heaps of comfortable, casual clothes, so I tried to focus more on pieces that could transition to professional-wear as well.

I’ve compiled a small list of “professional” staples in every woman's wardrobe. In this type of setting, there’s a list of must-haves that you can style in your own way. These are:

  • Pumps

  • Flats

  • Pencil Skirt

  • Trousers

  • Little Black Dress

  • Blouse

  • Blazer

These are all classic items that have stood the test of time. With these ingredients, so-to-speak, you can create different outfits in varying styles that make you look and feel great.

It’s important to add your own unique flavour, otherwise this way of dressing can get boring very quickly. You can do this by:

  • Accessorizing

  • Wearing your favourite colours

  • Wearing bold patterns

  • Getting ill-fitting clothes tailored

  • Venturing out of your comfort zone
