How a Beautiful Smile Complements Your Style
A smile is your best accessory. It can make even your worst outfits look good. Why? Because a smile is a sign of confidence and no matter what your smile is, confidence is the most important part of any ensemble. Many people choose to hide their smiles because they are uncomfortable with how they look. Whether you have just a few teeth out of alignment or whether all of your teeth need to be straightened, having a more beautiful smile could make you a more confident person. Here are just a few of the ways that a beautiful smile complements your style:
1. Makes you more confident.
A great smile displays your confidence, but it can also actually make you more confident, too. Body language is just as important to your own brain as it is ton other people’s. There’s a reason that many businesses require their employees to smile when they answer the phone, even if no one else can see them—it makes the person more confident. When you are confident, you shine, no matter what you are wearing.
2. Attracts attention to your face.
Your style is far more than just the clothes you are wearing—it is about how you are wearing the clothes, how you have matched them together and paired a hairstyle with those clothes. Your face is just as important as the clothes themselves, and nothing attracts more attention than a beautiful smile. When you have a great smile, people gravitate towards you.
3. Can soften a more extreme style.
If you like to dress in more extreme styles, you might find that people are put off from approaching you. Your predilection for leather jackets and black clothing might drive some people away if it is not paired with a welcoming smile. This is one of the best ways to invite people in, without having to say a single word. If you are concerned that the style you prefer sometimes pushes people away, a beautiful smile could help draw them back in.
4. Makes you look more professional.
Even if you are not trying to look “professional,” if you are interviewing for a job, a smile can be the perfect accessory. A beautiful smile is captivating. Not only does it help you to appear more confident, it can also help you appear calmer and more prepared. The simple action of smiling can give you enough time to compose yourself if you find that you are nervous. It is also the topper on your outfit, making you look like you spent time pulling it together.
5. Makes you look more put together.
When you are frowning or even just straight-faced, you might find that your outfit simply does not look complete. You can add all the accessories that you want, but if you are not wearing a smile, you’re just not fully dressed (as the song goes). Because smiling portrays confidence, when you smile, you automatically look like you have put more effort into your outfit, even if you really just threw it together. It’s hard to not look done up and attractive when you are smiling.
6. Makes you look effortless.
Even if you have spent hours laboring over which pair of shoes to pair with what outfit, you probably want to look effortless. People with effortless style often appear cool and collected, while still looking perfect, no matter the outfit and no matter the situation. A smile can be one of the best ways to make your outfit look easy, while still being attractive. Instead of looking like you have spent hour putting the outfit together, you’ll look carefree and beautiful when you wear a smile!
7. Can lighten up a dower outfit.
Maybe you left home, only to realize that the outfit you’ve chosen looks a little dark and even dower. What can you do about this? One of the best ways is to lighten that outfit up with a smile. You will always look happier when wearing a smile, which can complement a darker outfit. A smile can make a darker ensemble look less like you’ve walked straight out of a funeral. Again, this goes back to confidence. You can wear whatever you want and still be attractive and approachable when you are smiling!
8. You’ll look like you know you look good.
What’s wrong with knowing that you look good? When you smile, you are saying, “I know that I look amazing right now!” Your style will be on full display and people will be more likely to compliment you on it, because they will already be looking at you and noticing just how great you look! If you have crooked or misaligned teeth, you might be less willing to smile because you know that you do not like how your teeth look. You can combat this with an effective braces or Invisalign treatment.
9. Reduces your stress.
Did you know that smiling can actually combat stress? You can actually trick yourself into feeling happier, just by smiling. Whether you are feeling anxious because you are trying something new with your style or you are stressed out for an entirely different reason, a smile will help to get rid of that stress, which will help you stand taller and walk with confidence. This is the perfect way to complement your style, and all you had to do was smile!
