Retail therapy is defined as, “shopping with the primary purpose of improving the buyer’s mood or disposition”. What about dressing with that same purpose? It’s been proven that when you look good you feel good. Tailoring your wardrobe to bring out the best you possible is fashion therapy. Dressing with purpose instead of just throwing on any old thing is key. Tapping into your own brand of personal style can bring out the real you and shed light on aspects of your personality and character that you didn’t even know were there.
When you wake up in the morning, hold onto happy and positive feelings and allow your clothing choices to mirror them. When you are satisfied with your look, you will feel confident all day. It is more than just confidence. When you are happy with your appearance, your entire brain chemistry changes. Some people enter the process of dressing with no real intention. Putting on clothes seems like pure necessity, but there are reasons you choose what you do. Colors signify moods and patterns represent dispositions. Select your ensembles with this in mind.
Stock your wardrobe with clothing that has a point. Does the color speak to you? Are the sleek lines appealing? Can you envision making an outfit out of it? Make smart choices when shopping as opposed to always picking things based on price or practicality. Your closet and overall mood will improve because of it. It’s ideal to save money, but you can’t put a price on feeling great. Utilize fashion therapy to make buying, dressing, and accessorizing decisions. Open your closet with the goal to create something fabulous and inimitable and you will become just that.
