Over the past two years, it has been an absolute pleasure to partner with a brand I love, Hanes, for their #BeComfydent campaign. It’s simple: you can achieve anything when you are confident + comfortable. When you are “comfydent,” you shine.

As the temperatures go down, you might also start to feel a little down too. So let’s find ways to boost our self esteem, and feel “comfydent” no matter how cold it is outside.

#1 First layer
The first layer is always the most important: UNDERWEAR. If I’m wearing uncomfortable underwear, believe me, my confidence is GONE. My ultimate fave: Hanes Cool Comfort® Microfiber Hister Panties. They stay in place and move with you for all day comfort. Now you can add any thermal, leggings, pants, or anything that will make you feel like you can conquer the world.

#2 Forget about the beauty standards
Don’t let the media define how you feel about yourself. Stop comparing yourself to others. Don’t let anyone make you feel like you should be a certain size or look X way. All that matters is how proud you are with yourself. So go ahead, when it comes to clothes, forget about the size and just focus on how it makes you feel.

#3 Invest in a few winter accessories 
The easiest way to update any seasonal wardrobe is by getting a few trendy accessories. No need to go crazy with a whole new wardrobe. Get a pair of statement earrings (perfect since your arms and neckline are covered) that will work amazingly for any Holiday party; or a trendy scarf that will go perfect with your favorite coat; or even a fun hat. 

#4 Don’t forget to workout & eat right
I know it’s tempting to hibernate during the winter, eat yummy foods and avoid exercising. However remember what they say “summer bodies are made in the winter.” If it’s too hard to exercise outside, there are so many amazing workouts you can find online and you don't even have to leave your living room.  We all know that physical activity boosts our happy hormones; so say yes to a happier, healthier, and more confident YOU.

#5 Break all the Fashion Rules:
Your real sense of style kicks in when you are wearing clothes that you feel comfortable and confident in. I could tell you to go ahead and avoid wearing leggings and a hoodie, but I’m going to say JUST the opposite. Like in the pictures above, I’m wearing Hanes Sport Women's Performance Leggings and the EcoSmart® Women’s Full-Zip Hoodie Sweatshirt

The trick to make it a little more put-together is to add glam touches; I went for a classic nude coat, burgundy lips, and a timeless flap bag. So I can go ahead and do all my errands during the winter but I'm as comfortable as I’ll ever be.

#6 Pamper yourself:
Because of changing season, you might feel your skin is drier and your hair is more brittle.  The good news is that since it’s cold outside, you have time to pamper yourself- step up that beauty routine! Have fun moisturizing your skin (remember dry areas like heels and elbows) and deep conditioning your hair. Check out all the amazing DIY you can find on Instagram.

#7 Socialize
Ok it might not be picnics at the park. But make fun winter plans with your friends. It can be ice-skating, doing a cookie bake-off, or even just binging your favorite shows online. 

#8 Stand tall and smile.
Happy body language instantly makes you feel better about yourself according to several studies. It reduces cortisol and boosts self-confidence. 

#9 Pop of color
I know we tend to associate winter with dark colors or, well, no color at all. But even if you are tempted to wear all black, don’t be afraid to wear your favorite color. It will instantly bright up your mood. Lately I’ve seen some beautiful colorful coats that are going to make you smile. If you prefer to invest in dark winter gear, add color to your lips. It’s the easiest way and you will feel glam, beautiful, and powerful. My go-tos no matter the weather are a bright red or a mysterious burgundy.

#10 Read an inspirational book
Now that we have worked on your body, social skills, and wardrobe…it’s time to feed the soul with confidence. Take advantage of the weather, and curl up on the sofa and read an inspiration book. I’ve read a few that have changed my life in little ways. After reading them you will feel extra inspired for absolutely anything.

What are your secret to stay COMFYDENT no matter the weather outside?
