Successful images begin with choosing the right style to reflect your own individual personality. Always wear clothes that not only flatter your physical shape and age, but also mirror and reflect your own unique beauty and personality. Those who are born with instinctive style are lucky, while others, like me, develop their own from mistakes that they made through the years. The key to mastering your own personal style is to have the confidence to carry yourself with grace and poise.
So why don’t we always look in style?
Most people would say that they don’t have enough money, and others would say that they just don’t know how. The good news is that you do not need lots of money to look good. All you need to do is to understand what styles suit your body. An inexpensive garment, if fitted to suit your body, can give you a more expensive look than an ill fitted designer label.
If you don’t know how, the first thing you need to learn is to have some understanding and knowledge about yourself and what would suit your own individual personality. Avoid getting trapped in the past. Old fashion ruts become a hindrance to looking fresh and current. There are seven style personalities to consider:
Classic, Feminine, Dramatic, Natural, Creative, Elegant, and Sexy
