Believing in yourself can be hard when you have negative vibes around you. That’s why it’s so important to surround yourself with positive people, people that impact your life positively can help you believe in yourself. Nothing in this life we do can be done alone, we all need help along the way. One of the biggest factors of self love is being around people that show you love. It’s hard to love anyone when you don’t love yourself.
Positivity is so vital, that’s why body positivity means so much to me. It allows us all the opportunity to love ourselves no matter how much the media or society tells us not to. A wise person once said if we all loved ourselves as we are then the beauty and cosmetics industry would be out of business! That’s a true statement, so I say to you be who you are and love who you are not. We are all special…..you just have to believe it 🙂
Style has always been my cure ever since my middle school days. It gave me the opportunity visually express myself without even speaking. It has helped me build relationships, friendships and now a career. My style is my armor and savior, it has protected me from the way black men are often perceived in society but it has also saved me from my own body insecurities. I knew no matter how much hair I loss, how funny I walked or how many stretch marks I had…..I would always be the best dressed man in the room! #FACTS
I am a sucker for some Chelsea boots. They are easy to slip on and off, come in an array of styles, and look good with EVERYTHING! Personally, I have a black pair, a brown pair, and a pink suede pair. What I love most about the Chelsea boot is it’s a year round shoe. Don’t get me wrong, I love lace-up boots too, but when you’re on a time schedule and you just want to get well dressed and leave, the Chelsea boot is the answer. Make sure you find a style that fits your personal preference. If you like a rounded toe, then go with that, and so forth. The styles are endless; just make sure you get a quality pair that doesn’t hurt your feet.
Every man should have at least one white oxford shirt. I prefer the traditional American oxford shirts with the buttons on the collar. When you find a brand and fit you like, I suggest stocking up on colors like black, grey, blue, and one statement color (pink, purple, red) or pattern. These shirts are so versatile, they can be dressed up or down and worn with anything from suits to casual outfits.
They fit just about any and every occasion imaginable, and they will never let you down when you are in need of something to wear. They are a mandatory staple to have in your wardrobe. I suggest getting at least two white oxford shirts so you can change them out periodically and not have to rely on just one! 🙂
