Styling Tips from Super Heroes

Out of all superheroes, Iron Man is my favourite because he is one stylish dresser.

Think about it. Iron Man’s super power is his intelligence, accompanied by a sense of justice and integrity. His armour is the result of his ingenuity and is used as a tool to achieve peace and justice.

To top it off, he has a whole collection of suits for different situations. All beautifully-crafted powerful technology.

On the other hand, most if not all superheroes wear the same signature outfit. Batman has his dark suit (the design does evolve over time), Daredevil prefers head-to-toe red, Superman has a cape, and Wonder Woman spins around and transforms into the same thing every time.

Moreover, while many costumes are designed to mask the identity of the hero, Iron Man is loud and proud and is totally “out”. He is fighting the bad guys in his own name.

How’s this related to styling?

I know it may sound farfetched but that’s just how my brain works so allow me to explain!

To me, Iron Man represents a woman who:

  • knows herself really well and is aware of her power, knowledge and experience.
  • has a high sense of self-awareness and is comfortable in her own skin.
  • builds her own style (does not follow trends or let others “give” her a style).
  • understands the importance of dressing appropriately for each occasion.

Conclusion: You really cannot be stylish unless you have substance.

What do you think? Do you know someone who is a superhero dresser?

  1. I like this idea of iron man as a stylish, confident female dresser. I know women like that, but not many sadly. Most women seem to not to have the confidence to wear something different from what everyone else is wearing. It’s like you say they hide behind the mask of conformity.
    A woman with her own distinct style that she wears with confidence is such a pleasure to behold and always an inspiration.

  2. You said it well! “a pleasure to behold and always an inspiration”….unique style comes from one’s core which does grow stronger with age, fortunately!
