Throw away that sweater with the hole in it or those jeans that are barely staying together at the crotch. They may feel like old friends, but if you're spotted in them, you're going to be viewed as the neighborhood bag lady. It's easy to forget that your shirt is stained if you suddenly have to leave the house. Buy and wear clothing that you won't mind being seen in.
Now that you have an idea about how to improve your image you should start to feel confident about yourself again. A lot of people don't realize the importance of establishing a good image for themselves, and they go through life never following fashion trends. Yet you can show people you know good fashion after today.
