See how Dressing Your Truth brings out the confidence of this rich, dynamic Type 3 woman!
This is my cousin Jenn. We were roommates in college for a summer and had a BLAST together.
Back then, I think I can safely say that neither one of us had any idea about what kinds of clothes looked best on us and brought out our true beauty. In fact, there was probably a lot of lamenting about our appearance!
But all that has changed for us now, thanks to Dressing Your Truth!
What is Dressing Your Truth?
Dressing Your Truth is a whole new way to think about style. It was developed by a woman named Carol Tuttle, who has written several books, like It’s Just My Nature and The Child Whisperer.
These books teach you about four Energy Types that shape every person. Each Energy Type has certain characteristics and gifts. Once you know your Energy Type, you are ready to get started with Dressing Your Truth!
Dressing Your Truth throws conventional wisdom on its head and teaches that our natural energy should inform what we wear–not our eye color, hair color, skin color, or body shape.
It works for everybody, no matter their coloring or nationality. For example, red-heads can look amazing in muted colors if they are a Type 2!
The whole premise is that what we wear on the outside should match who we really are on the inside. Instead of trying to portray an image of what we think we should be (more bold, confident, fun, etc.) we should harmonize with our true nature. THAT is when we really shine!
What are the Dressing Your Truth Types?
Dressing Your Truth has four Types, named simply Type 1, Type 2, Type 3, and Type 4. (Just click on any of the following links to learn more about each Type).
Type 1 is the Bright, Animated woman.
Type 2 is the Soft, Subtle woman.
Type 3 is the Rich, Dynamic woman.
Type 4 is the Bold, Striking woman.
How did Dressing Your Truth Help Jenn Feel More Confident?
I don’t know a single person whose confidence doesn’t grow when they learn about their Energy Type.
Jenn is no exception. Read her interview to find out how her life has changed since learning about Dressing Your Truth. As you’re reading, see if you can relate to anything she is saying!
Me: How did you first learn about Dressing Your Truth and what attracted you to it?
Jenn: You got me into the DYT stuff, or at least that is where I first learned of it. What attracted me most to trying it was that I have never liked how I look in clothes and always felt like I was spending lots of money on really cute clothes that I didn’t wear or didn’t like to wear. I was really hoping to find something to help me be more comfortable in my own skin/clothes.
Me: How did you know you were a Type 3?
Jenn: When I took the course, watching the videos of what each type was, I just felt more drawn to the type 3 video. Then when there were several comments about lumps of clay for noses for type 3’s I just really felt like that was me. I then did a trial run and went to the store and tried on what I saw as Type 1, 2 and 4 clothes and just felt the most comfortable in what I was learning was the type 3 look.
Me: What are some of the challenges you have faced as a Type 3 woman?
Jenn: I can never walk into a store and just find clothes that work for me. I see lots of clothes for the other types, but I really struggle finding Type 3 styles. Maybe because I have a mix of type 4 and 1, I struggle to really find anything. Shopping is a real hit and miss situation.
Me: What do you love about being a Type 3 woman?
Jenn: Learning that a Type 3 woman is one who is driven to complete things, to have opinions and be busy (often multi-tasking) seemed to give me permission to be more of my true self, without apology. I feel much more confident with my personality after learning all of this, and I have loved that!
Me: How has knowing your Type and the Type of others changed your relationship with them?
Jenn: Knowing that I can sometimes be a bit opinionated and realizing that it is a character trait, not a flaw, and that others need softer approaches has just given me some perspective to approach situations with more tact than before. I also have been less offended by others who don’t share the drive I have on projects. Coming to appreciate that different personalities are just different–not bad–has given me much more patience as I work with others as well as more acceptance of what I would have thought of as flaws in others before.
Me: Any other thoughts or insights you would like to share?
Jenn: As much as DYT has helped me feel more confident in my own skin, it is still a learning process. Understanding what textures, shapes and colors to wear will not make me a better person until I really work to make sure I am true to myself in all aspects of my life–not just the exterior.
