Looking good and feeling great with The Chic Stylist

You've heard the term "You'll never get a second chance to make a great first impression." There really couldn't be a truer statement, as psychology studies suggest:

  • in less than 2 seconds we form an impression from someone's face alone;
  • from 7 to 17 seconds we've gone on to form a fuller impression of them; and
  • 55% of our opinion about someone is determined by physical appearance.

So, in reality, what you wear and how you present yourself is not a shallow consideration.

Whether we're conscious of it or not, we all have a personal brand or 'reputation'. We cannot stop people's opinion or thoughts of us but we can help their positive perception. By improving the way we dress, talk and behave and reflecting the best version of ourselves, we can shift perceptions. This changes the way we feel about ourselves and really empowers us with a confident demeanour for a more successful life.

 

The Chic Stylist's 'ABC' guide to how we can be more strategic about the messages we're transmitting:

There is a level of social acceptance to how you dress. The key is to dress appropriately for the occasion, meeting, event, interview or date! There are 5 dress codes that need to be understood and applied properly to the right setting, which combined with a good understanding of your style personaility and body shape, can make you look well put together and polished. 

The 5 Dress Codes:

  1. Leisurely casual -- weekend, lounge, home wear, gym wear, very relaxed, trainers
  2. Tidy casual --dark jeans, shoes/fashion trainers, unfaded/non-scruffy t-shirts/polo tops
  3. Business Casual -- more relaxed jacket/bold jewellery, interesting colours/patterns
  4. Relaxed Business -- non-formal,un-matching suit jacket/trousers or skirt,tie is optional
  5. Formal Business -- High contrast to create sense of authority--white shirt, dark suit,tie

Poor grooming and poor personal hygiene will ruin a polished look, as people do notice and it will severely knock your confidence. Things such as untidy and dirty nails, stained, chipped or missing teeth, bad breath, body odour and untidy hair should be addressed.

Research shows that approximately 55% of what we communicate is via our Body Language. What we say verbally only accounts for approximately 7% of what's understood. This demonstrates the importance of body language.

Negative body language to avoid:

  • Lack of eye contact or staring, eye shifting, eye closing -- long blinks
  • Fiddly movements of hands/feet -- playing with coins in pockets, for men
  • Adjusting clothing
  • Hair twisting, flicking or nibbling
  • Twisting a ring
  • Tapping a pen, tapping fingers on a table
  • Fingernail biting, pen nibbling
  • Slumped posture


Body Posture and your overall physiology affects how you feel and contributes largely to your confidence levels. Sit up or stand up straight, keep your head high, keep shoulders back and wear a big and bright inviting smile!

We've all heard the saying that we have two ears and one mouth. We really must be using them in that proportion.

Top tips for a confident voice:

  • Don't just hear, but actively listen before speaking;
  • When you do speak, your voice should be confident and able to adjust and modify in tone and expression;
  • Have the right tone, pitch and volume;
  • Use appropriate inflection, good diction, moderate pace and speed;
  • Don't use too much jargon or abbreviations;
  • Don't use meaningless crutch words such as 'umm', 'right', 'you know', 'to be fair etc


Practice improving your voice quality by recording yourself speaking for 5 mins and listen for tone, pitch, diction and speed and then practice reading out loud, taking into account these areas for improvement.

The Mental Health benefits to an improved overall image

Many of us are facing different life challenges, including finding a new relationship or coming out of an old one, embarking on a new career or business, going for job interviews, taking control of our physical and mental health and taking a new direction in life. When we invest in dressing, behaving and communicating better, we really change how we feel and how we cope with what life throws our way. When we start the day on the right track, in a positive, powerful, resourceful state of mind, we can't help but feel an abundance of confidence, positivity and happiness and can keep stress and negativity away. By eradicating the negative mindset about our poor self-image and limited beliefs, we can stop holding ourselves back and start looking great, feeling amazing and be the real hero in our personal story.

As a Certified Style Coach™ I empower and inspire individuals on their journey of self-development to feel alive and excited about the prospect of a new self. The result is that you become effortlessly stylish, exude inner and outer confidence and ultimately feel comfortable in your own skin.
