Men have been underrating women for centuries. And in today's society, a woman needs to put in the extra effort than a man to attain her goal or to succeed.
Although we're proud of being women, most of the time we must fight hard to achieve what we want. And one of the typical ways to ensure we reach the top is presenting ourselves decent in public.
Many times, I see women in public, either in restaurants, shopping malls, and job interviews, wearing workout attire. Such clothing may include shorts, hoodies, baggy t-shirts, and leggings.
It's not that these attires aren't suitable, but they make us unpresentable and sloppy. For me, when I wear leggings outside my home, I feel less unprofessional.
Comfort is key to every woman, and most of us wish to be comfortable in our clothing as possible. We instead prefer walking in flat shoes than in heels. Some women even believe that high heeled shoes were introduced by men to make a woman hard to chase.
But in reality, some of the clothing most women desire to get rid of, because of the "feminism" influence, can make you confident and professional. Wearing dresses, skirts, or heels will make you look thriving and self-sufficient.
Think about it like this, if you walk into a job interview wearing Nikes and leggings, will you get hired? Perhaps if you're seeking to become a workout trainer at a fitness company or a gym, you might get the job. But if you're looking to work in a corporate sector or business, your dress code matters. You need to dress up like a professional.
And no, it's not about how men will see or consider you. But it's about boosting your confidence.
Also, workout leggings aren't supposed to be worn in public. It's just wrong. Some women may even wear see-through leggings such that everyone walking on the street can see her bright-colored undies. You might think it feels sexy, but sometimes it's embarrassing.
Taking the time to dress up nicely will improve your self-esteem and increase the chances of people respecting you. It'll also give others the impression that you're a confident woman.
The way you dress and conduct yourself in public, especially if you're meeting someone for the first, time will give a lasting impression about you. You wouldn't like people to see you as sloppy or sluggish.
Although modern trends and social media may influence the way you dress, you shouldn't wear a particular fashion just to 'fit in.' Don't let the pressure of others dictate your wardrobe.
Fitting in modern fashion may not be a necessity for you. You're an independent woman, and you don't need social media validation to live in the current generation.
Instead, follow your own insights and life rules. Don't wear something just because everyone is doing it. Be unique.
Again, don't reserve the 'nice' clothes for particular events or important occasions. Wear them from time to time and see how your confidence will improve.
