Stop what you’re doing and look at your feet right now. What
do they have on? If that was the only part of your body that someone saw, what
would it tell them about yourself?
Yes, you are what you wear. Do you pay attention to first
impressions? Do you get turned on or off in the first 3 seconds of seeing
someone; before you’ve even spoken to them? Sure you have.
And the single person has a lot more to be careful about as
first impressions go. That critical moment can make or break your circle of
friends. Married people always have someone that will forgive their style of
dress, singles aren’t as lucky.
How do you check your style?
Start reading about fashion. Not everything you need to wear
will be the $200 white cotton shirt or the $800 sweater but you can find
bargains that have style if you know where to look and wear to shop.
Stay out of the malls and head to your local clothes shops.
You know, the small shops that carry style and fashion sense from a local and
trusted perspective, not some head office thousands of miles away.
Read some style and fashion magazines but pay better
attention to the gossip column magazines. Those published rags will have what’s
being worn right now and what will be the fashion to wear in the near future.
There was a time when I ended up being ahead of fashion when
I was shopping in second hand clothing stores. It was all I could afford, but
the price and style was right.
If you’re into ‘statement wear’, t-shirts and tops with
logos and messages, it’s only a few dollars to create your own iron-ons and if
you have a crafter’s side to you, silk-screening is a great hobby. Check out
your local craft store.
And, the next time out shopping, take a critical eye with
you and watch what people are wearing. Look for the similar build and sex/age
type persons and compare what they are wearing to the clothes you own.
You’ll be a fashion magnet with better style and potential
in no time.
