If you are just half as addicted to Instagram as I am, you know the struggle of taking a good (or just okay) Insta-moment. Of course, Insta-moments can be anything and everything that you might find fascinating or visually pleasing, but because “anything and everything” is […]
Spice up the sweater-everyday rutine Lately I have gotten really into wearing oversized sweaters over loose miniskirts, as I like how it almost looks as if I am wearing a sweaterdress, but then there is the little detail of the skirt at the bottom. Furthermore, […]
Today it might seem easy to hide behind a screen at all costs, however there are so many instances where you need to be, or at least be able to make it seem like you are, confident. Whether it is a university or job interview, attending a new society for the first time, or simply being at a party where you don’t really know anybody, emitting confidence is key.
I have here collected 6 easy ways to seem and be more confident.
Speak your mind
Speaking your mind is definitely one of the best things you can do to emit more confidence. Not only will speaking your mind make people notice you, but it will also make it seem like you are an opinionated person who aren’t scared to let her opinion be known.
Be outgoing and happy
Today there is a general characterisation of a “cool and confident” person as someone who stands in the corner of the room with a growl on their face. However, this is a rather outdated perception. Sitting in the corner of the room and not talking to anyone simply makes you seem shy and nervous, while talking to new people and making sure that you are an active participant of the community you are in will make you seem much more confident. Being happy is also a big part of this. Someone who smiles all the time and are generally just a positive and happy person will always seem more approachable and confident.
Ask for help and ask questions
Asking for help can be both difficult and uncomfortable, while often also making you feel stupid and maybe straight out unconfident. However, asking for help should be none of these things. By asking for help and asking questions, especially in circumstances where there is something you don’t understand, will only make you seem confident in yourself and your abilities. So next time you are a part of a conversation and there is a word or a concept you don’t know, whether it is for educational purposes or a social discussion, ask!
Don’t take yourself too seriously
Taking yourself too seriously is the absolute worse. It might be difficult to laugh at yourself in embarrassing situations, but when it comes down to it, being able to do this will make your life so much easier. Furthermore, the ability to not take yourself too seriously will make you seem confident as the person you are. Even if the person you are sometimes fall over, spill on themselves or mispronounce words.
Know what you want and go for it
This seems an obvious point when it comes to emitting confidence, but being someone who knows how to make a decision and stick with it, is just one of the easiest ways to seem and be confident. It doesn’t matter if it is knowing what you want to do with your life or just what to order for dinner, the important thing is to be a decisive person and not someone who will alter there wishes depending on what other people think and does.
Having an open posture can make wonders on how other people perceive you as a person. A person who maintains a straight back and an open body language, by for example not crossing your arms over your chest or slumping your knees and shoulders, will immediately seem like a more confident person.

Getting a roomie can be super tricky, especially if it’s not just a “share an apartment”-roomie, but an actual room-roomie. Often, you won’t get to choose your own roomie, and this does leave the option of getting a roomie who are the complete opposite of […]
It have always been a common known fact that wearing white after labour day is an absolute no-go. Now however, the table have turned in fashion world, and not only are wearing white after labour day no longer frowned upon, it is encouraged. With this in mind I will introduce one of my current favourite trends, the white trench coat.
What is the white trench coat trend
There is not much to the white trench coat trend, since it really does just entail wearing a white trench coat. However, I will say that although I am in this post featuring the trench coat, white jackets and coats in general are super in. Meaning that if you don’t see yourself as a trench coat wearing person, you can always get yourself a white denim jacket, bomber jacket, or classic coat.
Why have I chosen to embrace it
For starters, the trend is super easy to incorporate into your wardrobe, since it doesn’t require anything special from you. Further, the trend is a great addition to any wardrobe since a crisp white jacket will elevate your outfit a 100% and emit so much style and elegance.
It is also nice to get a break from all the grey, black and navy which tends to make its way into my wardrobe during the fall and winter months.
How to wear it
White is a very neutral colour, and can be worn with pretty much every colour or pattern without looking forced or mismatched. It is therefore also a super easy trend to prosecute right.
Generally trench coats tends to go better with pants, as wearing a dress or skirt with a trench coat often can create some weird and unflattering lines on your body. Since the trench coat is a loose fitting piece, it allows for some tighter items underneath.
Be aware that a crips white item may be super stylish, but a white’ish item is NOT. So make sure that your coat are always clean when you leave your home in the morning, and if you know that you are a clumsy person who cannot make a whole day without spilling on yourself, this trend might not be for you.
