Everyone, regardless of gender and age,wants to look attractive. And there is nothing unusual in this, for the first impression is made by people from our outward appearance: clothes, manners, make-up, speech characteristics and so on. Men to their wardrobe are much calmer than girls. They just buy those quality and modern things that go with them. Women, however, choose clothes much longer and approach this process more scrupulously: for them this is a whole ritual, which sometimes drags on for several hours. However, sometimes not all purchases are successful. So there are piles of blouses, T-shirts, trousers, dresses, sarafans and skirts appearing in women's closets, which have nothing to wear. All this is the result of the absence of a certain style. Your wardrobe should be selected based on what image you want to create - sports, business, glamor, vintage, glam-rock or another. Remember that the people around you get information about you, relying on what they see in front of you. Therefore, looking at your clothes, people make their opinion about what position you occupy and even how much you earn, what you like and what habits you have. Dressing should be so that everyone likes - both familiar and unfamiliar, to men and women. This is exactly what we will talk about.
Psychology of clothing
It's no secret that the things that wewe carry, form in the eyes of people around us a certain image. So, wearing a strict suit, having made the appropriate hairstyle, a woman instantly turns into a serious leader. And if she replaces this wardrobe with a denim jacket, sneakers and a T-shirt, then we will have a girl who surely loves sports and appreciates comfort and convenience. To date, in science, a separate direction has emerged - the psychology of clothing. One American scientist even wrote a book - "You are what you wear" - where not only the reasons for choosing one or another things are described, but also what are the psychological problems of creating a wardrobe and how to overcome them. Unfortunately, many people judge the inner world of a stranger, not based on his personal qualities, which they do not know, but guided by the appearance. Therefore, clothes, however we would like it, is a kind of indicator of the social and economic situation and relates us to a certain caste, regardless of education, profession, financial situation and so on. For example, a man in a leather jacket and leather pants is perceived by society as a rocker, and if he wears a white shirt and tie and tight trousers, he can safely be classed as a "white collar". His style should be formed very carefully, but it is not necessary to stick to it constantly - clothes can vary depending on the situation. Naturally, to go to work should be in a business image, and at a party in honor of Halloween, you can easily dress up as a rocker or try on the image of a disco diva. Firstly, the main thing is to please yourself, secondly, the wardrobe must correspond to the place and event that you are going to. Another important factor, not so long ago proved by scientists, is that clothing can influence a person. American psychologists conducted a study: people were divided into two groups, the first to give out white robes and said that they were worn by doctors, and the second belonged to things belonging to artists. Then everyone was given simple tasks, to which people from the first group approached more cautiously, acting carefully and carefully considering each step. Thus, scientists have found out that things can affect a person. Surely you noticed that, dressing in a luxurious evening dress, putting on high-heeled shoes, you involuntarily begin to hold your back more evenly and feel like a goddess. And when you come home from work, you become homely and calm - you just need to dress in your favorite and comfortable things. Therefore, choosing this or that style, ask yourself the question: "Who do I want to be?" It is based on this and form your wardrobe.
The problems of the wardrobe and how to deal with them
We already mentioned above that one of the psychologists outlined in his book the main problems of wardrobe and style that many women face. Let's consider some of them:
- If you store all the clothes in the closet - the right one andunnecessary, worn and torn, long gone out of fashion and so on - this indicates that you are unconsciously clinging to the past, wanting to preserve all these "values." Tell yourself: "Enough!" And throw out two-thirds of things that do not sit well, are full or, on the contrary, you have not been in them for a long time.
- If women in the wardrobe are dominated by neutraltone, there is a scarcity of accessories - hence, it is stuck in everyday routine, wants comfort or is afraid to attract attention to yourself. In this case, you should gradually dilute your habitual image with bright and fashionable things or decorations.
- Some women wear clothes not in size: too large or small. As the American psychologist notes, this indicates that the girl perceives her body is not what it really is. Choose a new wardrobe, resorting to the help of a friend or professional stylist. They will help you to judge your forms more adequately.
- If colleagues or close people say thatyou dress in an unseemly or defiant manner, do not rush to take offense - here it is worth thinking about. There are two options: either you are choosing the wrong clothes for a particular event, or you are trying to attract everyone's attention. Having understood what is the cause of your fiasco, fix the problem, henceforth buying the right things.
- Often in the street you can meet a mature woman inshort skirt or overly bright dress, in general, dressed in a youth manner. This is wrong, since tying your outfit follows a certain situation, and not at all to the age. Moreover, a forty-year-old lady will look much more impressive in stylish and elegant things, suitable to her by age.
- Some businesswomen also in everyday lifeprefer business style in clothes. This indicates their fixation on work and unwillingness to relax. Appreciate yourself not only for achievements in your career, but also for your personal qualities and other talents. Learn to relax and choose appropriate clothing for it: warm cozy sweaters and sweaters, loose cut trousers or jeans, comfortable shoes.
The wardrobe does not have to beexclusively from expensive branded things - the main thing is that they were made of quality material, sewed by skilled craftsmen and fit you according to the type of figure, as well as the color scheme. Then you are guaranteed to look luxurious, which men will not fail to notice.
We choose style independently
So, if you are looking for your own style, you want to changeor, perhaps, to improve the existing one, you can go in two ways - contact the image maker or pick up the wardrobe yourself. In the first case, you will be consulted by a professional for a fee (note, it will be quite expensive). But each person is his own stylist and can do without outside help, the main thing is to know the rules, which we will tell you below:
- His clothes should be chosen so that shecorresponded to the inner world, that is, the style should reflect your inner self, and not go with it in a cut. If you prefer the image of a business woman, then in trendy things that teenagers wear, you obviously will not be very comfortable. Therefore, stopping your choice on this or that product, be guided by your feelings, not by the advice of sellers.
- When choosing an image, consider factors such asyour profession, position, age, and the like. Buy two or three things that will form the basis of a new wardrobe. They should be combined with each other, and with other outfits hanging in your closet. In addition, stylists recommend light neutral clothes to complement with bright accessories that will help complete the image and place the necessary accents.
- Before going to the store, look inmirror and determine the type of your figure (apple, pear, rectangle, hourglass and so on). Every woman has something to hide and emphasize, but you can do it with the help of clothes. Therefore, study the advice of experts about a particular type that is recommended to wear, and what should be discarded. This information will help you make the right choice.
- Not only the features of the figure, but also your color -this is an important part of the ideal image. So, blondes are suitable for warm and light shades (pink, grassy, yellow, blue and others), brunettes - bright colors (red, dark blue, purple). Light-skinned brown-haired women should pay attention to clothing brown, beige, gray, coral, and swarthy more to the face of ocher, scarlet and heavenly shades.
Now you understand how to choose a style of clothing,and you can safely apply this knowledge to practice. Buy high-quality and not necessarily expensive things that suit you color, emphasizing the advantages and hiding the shortcomings of the figure, and you will always look stylish.
