“A great piece of advice I get from my clients is that you don’t necessarily have to be super conscious about how you dress. I’ve had people tell me that they don’t have to dress up at all because they’re just going to wear jeans and a tshirt.
I always suggest the same thing to them. If you are going to wear a really cool leather jacket, be sure to wear it with something that shows cleavage.
I think it’s important to remember that a lot of people who are very conscious of their body image and dressing in a way that they consider to be “comfortable,” end up being the people the media portrays them to be. This is especially true when it comes to people who are in the entertainment industry, like actors and actresses. So if you’re a famous actor you don’t have to dress up in a fancy leather jacket or something.
That was a great response to that, I agree. Although I do think it’s important to remember that in general, most of the people who are in the entertainment industry are just as conscious of their fashion choices as the average person. And when their fashion choices are the ones that the media makes them feel most comfortable about, they end up being portrayed as the most comfortable ones.
It’s okay to be self-conscious, but it’s also important to remember that the biggest audience for your work is not those who are paying you. It’s those who can relate to its essence. People who enjoy your work and watch your movies don’t care about the outfit you’re wearing on the red carpet, they care about the essence of what you’ve created. So if you don’t feel comfortable in your own skin, that’s okay.
My own personal experience with this is that having someone else dress me up is always going to make me feel more comfortable, even if I have a weird outfit. The problem is when it becomes so commonplace that I feel like I have to change my appearance to fit in. At the same time, I also don’t want to have to change my personality to be comfortable in someone else’s skin.
The problem is that the vast majority of people who ask what to wear ask for something they’ve had on for years. So instead of asking what you’re comfortable with, ask what your audience wants.
So I found a pair of really nice, comfortable, casual jeans.
I also took to wearing jeans because the idea of wearing a hoodie or baseball cap would seem very strange and unnatural. In fact, it makes me feel like a spy.
This is a good point- I had a client ask me the exact same question, and the answer was to borrow one of his jeans. When I asked why, he said he just didnt feel comfortable in them because they were too tight and too short, but I pointed out that he was wearing them that day, and that he had not been wearing them for a few years. I think he agreed with me.
