Stop thinking all the clothes, shoes, and accessories look good on you. In the fashion world, everything is made according to a certain body type. The designers know it won’t look good on everyone because they are making for a specific image. That’s why they make other pieces that look similar. Now, if you know your body then you know exactly what I mean because the clothes you have look good on you. But if you are confused, then you need some help.
It is easy to shop and think “Hey, that’s cute” pick up the item, prance to the checkout line thinking you’ve just discovered the world’s best piece of clothing, get it home, and hate it when you try it on. The reason this happens is because you didn’t follow the shopping rules, and that’s the reason for you taking your purchase back to customer service. It didn’t look good on you because it wasn’t made for you! If you see it on the mannequin you have to remember the mannequin reflects that perfect world where everybody looks the same. It’s just another case of the favorite game. They don’t make mannequin’s in all shapes and sizes. And if you see it on a hanger and it looked cute there too, remember one thing before you take it to the checkout line. YOU ARE NOT A HANGER! That’s another common mistake people make. Try it on first, then decide if it looks cute on the hanger.
Body type, personality, and creativity are the first basic steps to effective shopping.( As your style blossoms you’ll learn the rules get more complicated.) Your personality comes first. It’s the foundation of you, and it’s the foundation of your style. If you don’t like any of the following words: prissy, preppy, punk, cute, sporty, angry, dark, daring, shy, hyper, bad, reckless, plain, or extravagant, then you definitely won’t dress that way. If you hate all things cute, you won’t dress cute. If you hate all things dirty, then you won’t dress dirty. This is like second nature to some people when they shop. The next step is creativity. Creativity is that extra flare to an outfit.Once the style matches, you will then add creativity to make it more like you. The very most important step is body type. You must know what looks good and what looks bad. Every detail of your body will show in your clothes. Know how to disgust certain body parts, and how to bring out certain body parts.
When you shop you must always be aware of you before you make a decision. If you remember the three steps, then you will pretty much find what you need. Don’t be discouraged if you don’t find what you were looking for even if you do use those steps. That only means you are ready for the next steps in the fashion search.
