"Nothing makes a woman more beautiful than the belief that she is beautiful."
By Sophia Loren
Human brain judges what is seen and within seconds, the first impression is formed. Undoubtedly, it is one's appearance that is first perceived, behind a confident appealing appearance, is the hidden inner charm beauty and charisma.
Dressing is all about expressing yourself. It reflects our thinking and facilitates our objectives and makes us more effective. How we look affects the way we feel and quite conversely.
In this age when fashion is all taking, with trends coming and going, there are cloths available in all forms, sizes and shapes, but then, there are a few that affect a chord with our inner persona.
What to wear?
Do you spend every morning staring into your bathroom wondering for the nth time why you have nothing to wear? Many women in India face this dilemma when you are already running late for work. Indian women love their clothes. Dressing up smartly and looking presentable makes them feel good.
However, you don’t need to spend big bucks to have that dream wardrobe. Like everything else in life, smart choices and knowing what works for your body is the key of having a never-disappointing closet. The two most important aspects that women in India should understand when it comes to dressing are:
Many times are we caught staring at someone, and envy them. It may either be because of their dress or their footwear or their accessories we are attracted to. And sometimes we even end up imitating, adapting them.
But sometimes, it leaves us upset, the very reason being the difference in our body shape. Style is what we choose to wear, considering the uniqueness of shape of our body.
In the wide assortment of clothing, while every piece on its own is appealing, it can get a tad tricky when it comes to styling. With a fair and honest assessment of your body, knowing your body shape, it is lot easier to know what kind of dressing work best for your shape.
Amongst the broad range of body shapes, most of the women fall into four main categories:
Ø Banana - straight up and down
Ø Apple - thick around the middle
Ø Pear - larger at the bottom
Ø Hourglass - curvy but evenly proportioned
Note: Being confident with your own skin and dressing well to complement your body type rather than the body we want is one of the biggest keys to self-esteem. We should be innovative, edgy and sharp to find out the right one and 'fill out' or 'slim down' the parts of our body, creating a proportional body shape and curves on all the right places, reducing any prominent body areas that we are self-conscious about.
And if your hips are more prominent than the shoulder-line then you should visually create more width and volume around your shoulder area and bust. Or if you have a straight waist then you have to find clothes that will add texture and interest to hips area and your bust/shoulder - which helps make your torso look narrower.
