We often feel compelled to make our wardrobe decisions based upon external influences: magazines, movies and, of course, our mothers. When we wear something in which we are not entirely comfortable, not entirely ourselves, it shows. We reveal it in our body language and posture.
It doesn’t matter how ‘in fashion’ the garment is. It doesn’t matter how many people tell us “Wow, that really suits you!” If we’re not feeling it, we’re not feeling it. And it’s hard to feel comfortable when you like you’re wearing a disguise designed to meet the approval of others.
And when we’re not comfortable, we give off little subliminal waves that make others feel uncomfortable, too. Not ideal when we’re trying to impress a date. Especially in the midst of the emotional and spiritual minefield that is the dreaded first date.
You don’t need me to tell you that the ‘date environment’ can be uncomfortable enough without us transmitting additional psychic signals of uneasiness!
But there is a solution, and it isn’t to be found in the pages of an expensive, glossy fashion magazine.
