Haven't got it? Need more of it? Read on to find out why a woman confident in her own skin is so appealing, yet so difficult to achieve.
Have you ever noticed women, when out shopping and thought I would love to be as stylish as her? It's often hard to put your finger on what it is in particular that gives them that 'something' that sets them apart from the crowd.
Is it the well cut blazer, the dress that makes you do a double take, the jewellery that just 'works'? In reality it may be all those things, but something a lot more. They are confident with their style. It exudes from their pores. It says ' I've got this' It gives them presence, turns heads and opens doors for them.
The great news is, this confidence isn't something you are born with, you can learn to be confident in your own stylish skin and who knows where this confidence can take you?
