Why You Lack a Sense of Personal Style
Many women labour through life not making the most of them because they lack a sense of personal style.
They think clothes don’t matter or do not understand where to begin.
They incorrectly believe the notion that becoming stylish is a feat beyond their grasp.
Some wallow in comforting excuses—the stress of taking care of the children, domestic expenses, lacking time or inclination. Their spouses are blind to them, looking shabby because they love them “just the way they are”.
While others rely on their fabulous personalities, with a belief that cultivating a sense of personal style is irrelevant.
But this is living in denial.
What You Need to Understand
I believe there isn’t a single woman who doesn’t want to improve the way she looks.
Even if she feels like a goddess, she might like to trade her breasts for a pair that defy gravity.
She might believe that diet, money, and even surgery are the answers. But she’s too greedy to do the first; will probably never make the second, therefore, can’t pay for the third.
But looking stylish isn’t about following fashion, losing weight, being rich or succumbing to the knife.
It’s about dressing to show off what you love and hiding what you loathe about your body. Looking stylish is about knowing what not to wear as it is about what suits you. It’s about being honest and coming to terms with the fact that some parts of your body aren’t great.
Also, it’s about understanding that certain clothing only serves to exacerbate these problem areas.
Once you understand what not to wear, the path to “chicdom” becomes a piece of cake.
As long as you stick to the rules guiding personal style, you can forget what’s in fashion. If, however, you have a passion for what’s in fashion, then adapt recent trends to your body’s shape.
