“Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.”
―George Bernard Shaw
The way you dress and coordinate certain pieces determines your fashion statement. Be inspired to create fresh new ideas with your individual taste, personality and clothing budget.
When a simple dress can be made to look expensive with your choice of jewelry or accessories, there is no need to spend a small fortune on the latest designer outfit. Learn to know what works with what you already have.
Get ideas from your favorite fashion magazines, fashion websites, your favorite movie celebrities, or popular TV entertainers. Then work those ideas into your own style. Each time you leave your home, whether it’s for a job interview, a dinner date, to a movie theatre, or for a dressy social occasion, what does your outward appearance say about who you are?
Eating nutritious foods, drinking lots of pure water, exercising daily, and getting plenty of restful sleep contributes to a beautiful image. For healthy glowing skin and hair, go for skin and hair products containing more natural ingredients and less added chemicals and toxins. Add more fresh fruits and veggies to your diet. Your body will thank you for it.
Why Think About Your Image?
If you are a business owner, the impression you give to your customers is important. If they like you because of your personality, they are naturally influenced to have a favorable impression about you and what you offer. If they do not like the image you are presenting, then they may or may not buy from you.
Focusing on specific features that your customers see when they visit your physical place of business or even your website, determines the kind of image you display to your customers. How do you advertise your products? What are your prices? Are they comparable with similar businesses
If you haven’t done so recently, take a good look at yourself. Do you like people? Do you want to serve them? Are you concerned in helping them get value for their money? Customers base their buying needs and impulses on the image your business presents to the public. So, image plays a big part in serving your customers.
If you are a professional, a doctor, lawyer or teacher, in your place of business there may be certain dress codes you are required to follow. Then you must dress in the manner that dictates your occupation. Try to see yourself as others see you. This may make the difference between repeat customers or a business breakdown.
How Are Images Formed?
Your particular style determines your image. Your image is the most powerful possession you may own. Image is defined by your Inner beauty and is more important than just looking good on the outside. Whether your attitude is good, bad, negative or positive, it affects your outward appearance.
Does your personality match your true image? Do you dress more in casual, sporty outfits, or are you a more professional and classic type? Does your image suggest a sassy, high fashion, or a hands-off attitude to others? The way you dress says a great deal about your image, so choose carefully.
First impressions can be persuasive. Are you a talker or a listener? Do you judge or are you open to another’s point of view? Can you advise or suggest your opinions constructively? Adversity and anger in dealing with others is never pleasant. In difficult situations, a calm attitude works better.
What positive impressions are you giving out? Are you creative in coordinating different outfits? What is your individual clothing style? Can you budget wisely; eat healthy, dress well, and maintain a sense of confidence in the midst of the risky economy today? Is your business a pleasant place to visit or shop? If not, now is the perfect time to create a great image!
