When you walk into a room, you should make a great and memorable first impression. Keep in mind that a memorable impression can either be good or bad. What you should be aiming for is the good kind of memorable impression that leaves people wanting to get to know you, talk to you, and be around you.
Sadly, in today’s world, fewer and fewer people, both men and women, care about how they look and present themselves in the world. However, if you want to open doors of opportunity for yourself and get admiration and respect, you need to make a deliberate effort with how you look and style yourself. A great style that is elegant and feminine will open many doors for you. How so?
- When you look good, you feel good because you will have cultivated a positive self-image and self-perception. This in turn increases your confidence and helps you show up at your best without worrying how you look and you are able to focus on what truly matters.
- You will receive preferential treatment due to the halo effect, an outcome of positive first impressions. When others see that you treat yourself with respect, which is communicated through your style, they accord you a similar kind of respect. The subconscious thought behind this dynamic is “If she respects herself, then she will respect me and she knows her worth and value.”
- You’ll be seen as more trustworthy and more opportunities will come your way. Did you know that good-looking criminals receive more lenient sentences and good-looking politicians also get elected more favorably than their less visually appealing counterparts? Seems superficial, but people naturally gravitate towards what is visually appealing, as beauty is captivating. Want to get noticed? Dress in an elegant, tasteful, and feminine way.
