You know when you’re low energy, and put your personal style on the back burner? Perhaps life got busy and you couldn’t squeeze in your outfit planning sessions. Or you stopped fitting into your clothes the way you like. Either way, you end up going through the motions of getting dressed each day without any enthusiasm or inspiration.

And read on for my stylist advice.
This is a basic principle that what you put out is what you receive. If you’re not putting much effort into your appearance – how you look and what you wear – you’re broadcasting low vibes. Not only does this tell the world that you’re low energy, but it encourages people to respond with low energy.
On the flip side, when you take time with your outfits you’re showing other people that you care. But more importantly, you’re showing yourself that you’re worth that extra time and attention.
When you continue to put little effort into your style, you perpetuate your belief that no outfit options exist. As the sense of powerlessness persists, you sink deeper into your rut. And then it feels impossible to break free of this vicious cycle.
Overcoming your rut requires change. But you only have to take one small step at a time. It’s these tiny shifts that enable you to break the cycle.
The payoff for investing time and energy into your personal style is a higher self esteem. When you put together outfits you feel good wearing it impacts how you show up in the world. And when you show up differently, people take notice and receive you differently. It’s how you’re received by others that affects your self confidence. If others are receiving you with respect and adoration, then it’s going to raise your self esteem. The beauty is that the more others receive you well, the more enthusiasm you’ll have to put energy into your style, and you’ve created a positive feedback loop.
You don’t have to care about designers, enjoy shopping or feel passionate about clothes to have fun with your style. And while you may feel dissatisfaction over your body, or the items in your closet aren’t exactly what you want to wear, when you approach your wardrobe with an attitude of curiosity, outfit planning can be fun!
Mixing and matching is just playing around in your closet. It’s creative and should not be taken seriously. Keep it light! And get resourceful by seeing how you can bring your clothes together in ways you never thought of. There’s always an opportunity to change your outfit if you don’t like it. But if you never bother to try, you’ll never come up with that next amazing look.
When you’re low energy with your style, you’re transmitting low energy vibes which encourages others to respond with low energy. But when you take time for yourself and put effort into your appearance, you’re showing others (and yourself!) that you’re worth that extra time and attention. And by placing high value on yourself, you’re telling the world that you’re high value!
