WHAT I BELIEVE
A LOT HAS CHANGED
IN THE PAST FEW YEARS
AND THERE IS SOME
Fashion, personal style and image consultancy are not only for the rich and the famous anymore. With social media and an increased variety of social contexts, many styles have been accepted. Digital tools allow high-quality materials and services to be delivered in a timely and cost-effective manner. Online communication helps both professionals and customers to save time and energy. Internet helps us to keep in touch constantly, no matter where we are and translation and graphics tools help us to clearly illustrate and explain our ideas, expectations and solutions. With social distancing or normal life, online tools and materials are always available, since the Internet allows us to reach literally anyone, including the professional that best meets our needs, and to access online style resources literally anytime.
At the same time, however, the amount of information on topics like fashion and style seems infinite. Fashion and style tips that can be found online are often contradictory and confusing. It's difficult to tell the difference between professional advice and advertising content. The variety of products available on the market (online tools, apps, garments, accessories, skincare, makeup, etc.) is overwhelming.
You are the only person who can tell what you really need and what makes you feel good.
While an expert can provide you with valuable insights, you still need to commit to your own change. Any kind of change has to be desired in order to be successfully implemented and openness and vulnerability are part of the process.
You can’t tell if something works or not until you give it a try. Fashion and style have to be fun and one doesn't replace the other. Personal image is a lifelong work in progress. Practice makes confident.
IT ALL DEPENDS ON YOU
AND YOUR MINDSET
Focusing on your appearance is superfluous.
Focusing on your appearance gives you a sense of self and an opportunity to learn new things about yourself.
Looking for a job is more relevant than pulling together new outfits during a global pandemic.
Looking for a job while having a professional outfit ready for the interview is a smart move that gives you some advantage in front of the increasing competition even during a pandemic.
Nobody cares about the way you look as long as you are single.
An improved personal image increases your chances to meet someone.
If you don’t have a job anymore, there’s no need for you to project a professional image anymore.
Maintaining a professional image helps you find new opportunities or new clients for your own business.
1. You feel more confident.
2. Your ideas start being listened to and you start receiving external support.
3. You stay present and focused on your tasks instead of worrying about your appearance or feeling uncomfortable.
4. You look good, feel good and are authentically you.
5. You communicate better and achieve your goals while building better relationships along the way.

Aniela Codita is the Style Coach behind The Style Upgrade, Certified Image Consultant & Makeup Artist.
She built the platform to help men and women make more deliberate decisions in terms of personal image and style so that they could feel and look good, achieve their goals and live more fulfilling lives.
She struggled for years to find a balance between trends and individuality that felt right for her before she finally understood the key to creating successful outfits for every occasion.
She used to go shopping with her elder sister and her friends. It was fun and exciting to discover the latest fashion trends together while sharing their likes and dislikes. However, everything changed when she moved to Italy. With a new lifestyle in a foreign country, she felt the need to find herself again and to develop her own style.
She started doing some research which, in time, took her to study personal image and style. It all began as a hobby that helped her fulfil some personal needs but then she felt the urge to share the information with other people who could have found themselves in the same situation. The blog she started when she was still at the beginning was a nice way to do so but the personal image consultant certification gave her the confidence to offer professional resources and services.
She wanted people who feel confused and overwhelmed with the infinite range of options in terms of clothing and makeup to feel empowered and confident when it comes to their image and this is how The Style Upgrade was born. Her goal is to help men and women to experience joy, self-acceptance, safety, confidence and elegance and to love their body just the way it is so that they can achieve their personal and professional goals and live more fulfilling lives.
