Are You Comfortable in Your Clothes?

Not long after you wake up every morning, you wander to your closet to choose an outfit for the day. And whether or not you realize it, the outfit you choose and even the process of finding something to wear has an effect on your mental health. After all, doesn’t one outfit make you feel more confident than the rest? At Taylor Jay Collection, we’re a Black-owned business that is starting a conversation about the impact that fashion has on mental health — specifically speaking of how important it is for us to create a clothing line that not only helps you look great, but feel great as well. Keep reading to learn more about this important topic, and start shopping Taylor Jay Collection today.

What you’re wearing can affect:

  • Your attention span
  • How you feel about yourself

  • abilities
  • Your values and ideals

At Taylor Jay, We Provide

Be Confident. Be You.

The clothes you wear are a direct reflection of who you are. You have your own unique style, and you should be able to wear comfortable clothing that matches your personality. After all, the best outfit is one that makes you feel confident while being comfortable. Have you ever worn an outfit that you didn’t feel comfortable in? It can absolutely change your mood and your day in general. At Taylor Jay Collection, we want to clothe you in comfort and confidence so that you can have the freedom to be yourself each and every day. Keep reading to learn more about the ways that fashion can impact your mental health.

Attention Span

When you don’t feel good in what you’re wearing, it’s hard to think about anything else. Maybe you’re constantly adjusting your shirt or hiking up your pants. Whatever it is, it has all of your attention. This can affect your ability to focus on anything other than changing into something more comfortable.


The best outfit can brighten your whole day and even act like full-body armor. When you feel good in what you’re wearing, you’ll look good. Not only that, you’ll act more confident and even untouchable. Fashion has the powerful ability to drastically change our self-confidence level. Wouldn’t it be better if every outfit we had in our wardrobe made us feel like Wonder Woman?


If you think that what you wear has no effect on your abilities, it may be time to think again. The simple fact that we associate a lab coat with a scientist or scrubs with a doctor or nurse shows us that what you wear can make you feel a certain way about what you’re capable of. Chances are you’ll be a lot more productive during your workday if you dress up with a blazer and heels than you will with sweats and a t-shirt. We’re not saying you can’t be productive in your pajamas, but you may feel more productive if you look the part you’re trying to play.

Values & Beliefs

Have you ever seen an outfit on someone and you wanted to try and capture that style for yourself? In the process, you may unintentionally set aside your own unique style choices, values, and beliefs trying to embody the style of someone else. This can cause a lot of mental confusion, and ultimately when you go back to wearing clothes that represent who you are, your values and beliefs will align.

Dress The Way You Want to Feel

When it comes to your clothing choices, dressing how you want to feel rather than how you are actually feeling can make a positive difference in your day-to-day life. With the impact that fashion has on your mental health, it’s something that needs to be taken more seriously. Maintaining a positive state of mind and embodying a confident self almost always starts with the way you dress yourself in the morning. Taylor Jay Collection believes that every woman should be able to clothe themselves in confidence so that they can spread joy and positivity across the world. Here’s how we aim to do that.

Clothe Yourself in Confidence

Taylor Jay saw the need for a clothing line that embodied every woman, and thus Taylor Jay Collection was born. In a fashion industry that doesn’t often cater to every female body type, we aim not only to design sustainable clothing that looks great but makes you feel great as well. Your wardrobe should meet your needs, conquer your challenges, embrace your unique style, and help you spread joy.

Invest in Yourself

If you have struggled with fashion; if finding an outfit in the morning gives you anxiety; if you stay home because you’re not confident in how you look, it’s time to make a change. Taylor Jay Collection has partnered with The Phoenix Project to offer mental health resources and a safe, validating space in which you can heal. Learn more about this partnership and how it can give you the support and encouragement you need to start living with a new level of confidence.

Save the World

Along with everything else, Taylor Jay is passionate about creating a clothing line that is environmentally conscious. A sustainable collection like ours offers longer-lasting comfort, style, and versatility. When you wear an outfit that has been made with recycled and upcycled materials, you can feel good and look your best.
