Although you will hear some negative responses, you will also hear some that exhibit an eagerness to follow in your footsteps. These feelings can be disguised in comments like, “I love that on you, but I could NEVER pull it off.” These are the moments when you can help your colleagues build their own style confidence. Recommend some items they may feel comfortable trying and if they are brave enough to try them, shower them with compliments as soon as you see them.
Your workplace, although maybe not your happy place, should at least be a place where you can be yourself and feel happy doing so.
