Inc Mag­a­zine pub­lished an ar­ti­cle that talks about the 7 hacks of really suc­cess­ful peo­ple. The first 3 are – First, they truly love what they do. Sec­ond, they con­stantly evolve. Third, they edit their wlives. This got us at Jia Col­lec­tion think­ing that the same prin­ci­ples ap­ply to what we wear as well, if we want to dress suc­cess­fully and con­fi­dently. Wor­ry­ing about what to wear on a daily ba­sis can be quite stress­ful. But our three hacks will make you stress-free about this from now on. You are prob­a­bly say­ing “Really?” Let’s ex­pand on our logic be­low.

1. Truly love what you wear.

It comes down to who you are, what you value, and what really works for you.

This is quite sub­jec­tive. What works for one per­son might not work for the other per­son at all. Karen’s fa­vorite fash­ion piece might be that ba­sic cash­mere pullover that she can wear all the time, Lucy’s fa­vorite piece might be that su­per-tight lit­tle black dress that make heads turn at cock­tail par­ties. We hope you by now you have fig­ured out what really works for you. If not, you can con­sult an im­age con­sul­tant or sim­ply ask your fam­ily and friends what look best on you! The fash­ion pieces that you love most are not only those that you feel great in, but also those from which you get most com­pli­ments wear­ing, right? An­other way to know if you love what you wear is to ask your­self “Am I joy­ful and smil­ing when I am wear­ing this piece”?

Ladies, haven’t we all said this be­fore?

This pic­ture vividly il­lus­trates the com­mon prob­lem of many things we wear. Sure it looks darn good, but it is not that com­fort­able, fine I will bite the bul­let for a few min­utes, or even few hours. But when my tol­er­ance reaches the limit, I just can­not stand it any­more!

On the other hand, there are other fash­ion pieces for which you never have to deal with such prob­lem, be­cause they are al­ways com­fort­able to wear, in ad­di­tion to be­ing beau­ti­ful and en­hanc­ing your con­fi­dence and beauty.

Our rec­om­men­da­tion is – if you have high tol­er­ance for dis­com­fort, then keep wear­ing those un­com­fort­able dresses/shoes that you think make you look fancy. But if you don’t, which is per­haps the most of us, then you bet­ter go for those that are win­ner on both com­fort and style.

2. Evolve how you dress to so you worry less about what to wear

We can evolve how we dress in three ways. 1. Dress with what is most suit­able

for your­self rather than for other peo­ple.

Once you fig­ure out what you really love to wear, then only wear those that scale really high on the ‘love’ me­ter. Even if you have to dress up a cer­tain way due to the work en­vi­ron­ment, you can still add some ac­ces­sories that show your per­son­al­ity, an el­e­gant neck­lace? a funky pair of ear­rings? A neon­bright belt? Af­ter work, you should definitely wear what really rep­re­sents you. When you look most com­fort­able in your own skin, or the skin you wear, aka the clothes, then you will ra­di­ate con­fi­dence and leave great im­pres­sions.

2. Wear only those tried and true pieces that score high on both style and com­fort.

Gone are the days when you have to choose be­tween ei­ther style or com­fort. Nowa­days with the abun­dance of choices, a lot of clothes have stretch in them, and once you find one or two brands that fit you really well, just keep buy­ing from them. It is no longer hard to find lots of op­tions that pro­vide you both style and com­fort at the same time.

And the fast pace of mod­ern life makes each of us jug­gle be­tween many dif­fer­ent tasks all the time. Cor­po­rate ex­ec­u­tives, stay-home moms, or re­cent grad­u­ates who are just en­ter­ing the work­force, we all jug­gle. Look­ing good for all oc­ca­sions is not easy! But if each piece in your wardrobe is tried and true, you no longer need to spend time wor­ry­ing what to wear. Just pick any piece, put it on and you are ready to go!

This doesn’t mean you will keep buy­ing and wear­ing the same styles. It means you now have a range of what work for you in terms of fab­ric, fit and style at ref­er­ence, and you can buy new pieces that fall into that that range. Trust us, there won’t be lack of op­tions. The styles can still quite var­ied even just with the same shape or same fab­ric.

3. Wear more mul­ti­func­tional pieces.

And with pieces that are multi-func­tional, this ben­e­fit of dress­ing ef­fi­ciency is even mul­ti­plied. When you find a multi-func­tional piece that works for you, you save time and en­ergy on find­ing ad­di­tional pieces that have great look and fit, be­cause the dif­fer­ent looks and great fit are all packed into one piece. Do you know the 10 ben­e­fits of mul­ti­func­tional fash­ion de­signs?

3. Edit your wardrobe to only in­clude pieces that work for you 100%

Given that we all have at least 30 dresses, 20 sweaters, 10 pairs of pants, can we choose to only

62

keep those that give us both style and com­fort? Even if that means you need to get rid of 60% of what’s in our wardrobe. But for the 40% we keep, each of the 12 dresses, 8 sweaters, and 4 pair of pants will work for you 100% of the time! And be­cause each piece is both very stylish and com­fort­able, you will feel uber el­e­vated wear­ing it no mat­ter when, where, and for how­ever long. Each time you open your closet, you no longer need to think ‘Oh will this piece look good on me?’

Take ac­tion! Ac­tu­ally edit your wardrobe, know­ing that the ef­fort you put in to­day is go­ing to make your daily dress­ing so much eas­ier! Do it once and enjoy the ben­e­fits of it for the rest of year, or rest of life.

Madeleine Vion­net said, “When a woman smiles, then her dress should smile too.” But what dress truly makes a woman smile? And smile for many hours, and days?!

You know the an­swer.

You see this easy daily dress­ing rou­tine be­comes ‘easy’ af­ter some work, but such work is a to­tally worth­while in­vest­ment that will save you tons of your time and frus­tra­tion down the road. So put th­ese 3 hacks for stress-free daily dress­ing rou­tine into ac­tion as soon as pos­si­ble.

Ev­ery­day, and ev­ery mo­ment can be, and should be the time to truly enjoy what you wear.

Yours truly,

Jia.
