Fun fact: For the first time ever (or since they started recording in 1976), over half of Americans are unattached. It seems like everyone is buzzing about the rise of singledom, so naturally, we decided to join the style-centric side of the conversation with our two cents.
Scroll down for the empowering style rules single ladies should live by.
Confidence is attractive—for friends, for relationships, and for the workplace. As you know, wearing the right clothes plays a huge role in how you feel, so go ahead and dress the part.
It’s not fun or attractive to hobble around in shoes you can barely walk in. Also, how are you going to rock out to “Dancing On My Own” if the wrong heels are inhibiting your killer dance moves?
Your style is awesome, and you shouldn’t have to change it to fit anyone else’s ideal. Plus all your wacky and wonderful fashion preferences will come out of the closet sooner or later, and it will be a whole lot less awkward if you’d owned your look from the start.
Newsflash: The types of guys or girls you want to date are not the same ones that are interested in a bandage miniskirt that could double as a napkin.
Whether you need to have your armpits shaved to wave your arms in the air like you just don’t care, or you feel more confident when a wearing pretty lingerie set, take whatever steps you need so nothing holds you back.
