We've all heard the saying "There is power in knowing who you are and what you want." Well, the same can be said when it comes to how you dress. When you align your wardrobe with your higher self, meaning you understand the intricate ins and outs of your personality, thoughts, and desires, the energy you exert into a room becomes undeniable. This shift in alignment also goes hand in hand with embracing your earthly element. When you dress according to your earthly element, you're telling the universe, "I'm here! See?! I'm doing my best and being myself so PLEASE send good vibrations my way!" And when you feel good, you subconsciously put good into the universe, sending positive vibrations out into the world and the people around you (a.k.a. you feel happier and more aligned with your purpose!).
So now that you understand why you should dress as your earthly element, let's talk specifics. But first a little DISCLAIMER: This is not to say that if you start dressing in alignment with your element that you'll never get a flat tire, your crush will magically confess their undying love for you, or you won't burn your frozen pizza in the oven... AGAIN. Okay now that we have a clear conscience, let's get to it!
