Match Your Style to Your Mood

You feel great and you want everyone to know it. Try reflecting that positive attitude with your wardrobe! These tips will help you tell the world you’re feeling fabulous.

On those days when you wake up with a smile on your face and a mission to spread your marvelous mood to the world, try showing it with your wardrobe. After all, nothing tells people how spectacular you’re feeling more than a great outfit and a little bit of confidence. 

Here, celebrity stylist Johanna Laracuente — who’s worked with Eva Mendez, Paulina Rubio, Roselyn Sanchez and Barbara Bermudo — weighs in on the best feeling-great style choices for every mood and occasion.

Your Mood: Confident, sexy and sophisticated

Where You’re Going: First date (or a date with your significant other)

What to Wear:

  • Go with heels. (Strappy sandals are great) They kick up your look to the next level and instantly help you exude sexiness and confidence.
  • Nothing says feminine more than a great dress. If you have nice legs, show them off with a shorter cut, but keep your top more conservative to stay sophisticated. Something silky, soft or draped can accentuate your assets and camouflage anything you might be insecure about.
  • Keep your trendy, flashy accessories at home. Instead, go with simple jewelry and bring a small clutch or shoulder bag. It’s all about you, not your necklace!

Your Mood: Relaxed, comfortable and carefree

Where You’re Going: Casual weekend trip or shopping

What to Wear:

  • Tie-dye is a big trend this summer and looks great on a lightweight sheath dress. Rompers and jumpers are also very current, whether in a bright color, like green or purple, or in denim or print.
  • Opt out of wearing flip-flops; for a great flat sandal, try metallic gladiators or a comfortable colorful wedge. Sneakers may say “relaxed,” but they don’t usually scream “fabulous.”
  • Now is the time to carry a big, fantastic bag. A hobo bag or tote in canvas or leather should be functional for carrying around all day long while still looking chic and put together.

Your Mood: Flirty, fun and attention-grabbing

Where You’re Going: Out with your girlfriends

What to Wear:

  • Separates are great for comfort. Some dark-rinse skinny jeans with a trendy metallic, sequined or ruffled top look fun, flirty and fashionable.
  • Platform heels are super-sexy. Find a pair that’s comfortable to avoid barefoot salsa dancing!
  • White, red and yellow look great on tan skin. Bright hues like this are sure to let people know you’re confident and feeling good.
  • Bring on the funky accessories! Don’t be afraid to wear a showstopping piece like a statement necklace and a great cocktail ring, and always bring a clutch. And nothing says “I’m feeling great” more than glowing skin, so apply some shimmer lotion on your bust, arms and legs.

Your Mood: Feminine, romantic and stunning

Where You’re Going: Wedding or party

What to Wear:

  • Black tie doesn’t necessarily mean black. Stand out from the sea of ebony with prints and colors. A long chiffon dress with draping or a high slit instead of a short dress speaks volumes.
  • Kick up your confidence and fabulous mood by taking advantage of shape-enhancing undergarments. Whether you’re a size 2 or a size 20, a smooth, contoured body always looks best under a dress.

For accessories, go with a metallic or bejeweled sandal and one statement jewelry piece paired with other simple accessories. Try a fun feather hairpin with a big cocktail ring, or a cuff bracelet with
