Fashion has been a love of mine ever since I can remember. I love how what a person wears impacts more than just the outside. The way a truly good outfit can make a person feel is unmatched. Everything about it will force confidence and joy into their body: the colors, the quality, the fabrics, the patterns. A great outfit whips up a blizzard of positive emotions — poise, happiness, and self-love. In a society where confidence in one’s own skin can be trying, finding the perfect pieces can change a perspective.
Art sparks emotions and fashion is truly an artform. Every feeling pushed down inside can be artistically displayed on the human canvas — a brew of personal testimony. Everyone has the right and ability to leave their house each morning feeling like they are about to strut down the New York Fashion Week runway, and with these five pieces, you will.
Skims Soft Lounge Long Slip Dress
To be honest, anything from this brand will make you feel like a million bucks. However, a personal favorite and brand staple is this Soft Lounge Long Slip Dress which comes in sizes XXS to 4XL and six different colors.
Whether you are hitting Nobu for sushi or buying flowers at the local Saturday morning market, this dress is the perfect throw-on for any occasion. The ribbed, body-hugging material is made from high-quality modal and spandex to make you feel secure, snatched, and sexy all day and night. $78.
Agolde Criss-Cross Denim Short
Denim shorts may single-handedly be the hardest clothing item to shop for. From too short to too long to a gap in the back above the butt, no one pair is perfect — except these. A staple in my personal wardrobe, I have never felt so confident in a pair of shorts. The criss-cross waistband accentuates your natural curves making you look and feel more snatched than ever before. The 4.5” inseam creates the best length for any occasion.
Wear these shorts to a backyard family barbeque or to a fun night with friends at a brewery. No matter the occasion, you will be exuding confidence because these are a kind of denim shorts you have never experienced before. $178.
