1. COMFORT: often we see people who are all jumpy and uneasy, constantly checking themselves or adjusting the clothes they’re wearing. This can sometimes be very embarrassing and distracting.

The way we dress can either boost or deflate our confidence, be sure what you’re wearing does not make you feel weird and insignificant in public. Another factor under this is, the weather condition.

There’s also the issue of color combination, try as much as you can to not give others a headache when they look at you in the sunlight. Know your colors, not all of them are compatible, especially with your skin complexion. Generally it is advised that light skinned people should wear more of darker colors, while dark skinned people should wear lighter ones.

3. BODY TYPE: very crucial. You need to find clothes that suit your body type, or you all you will be able to do is looking and feeling like a clown.

7. TRY NEW THINGS: some people like to go with dressing styles that are all their own, this could turn out well, but too much of it can make one boring, so it would not hurt to explore diverse looks either. A new look should make you more confident and eager to socialize.
