Since those ancient times, when man shed the monkey's fur, clothes have entered his life forever. At first, it was just a piece of animal skin, performing a purely utilitarian role - to protect from the cold. Over time, clothing becomes a kind of symbol, a sign of belonging to a particular class or class, tribe or people, an indicator of wealth or poverty. A little later, the taste and aesthetic abilities of its owner begin to be expressed in clothes … And what is it for us now, what functions does it perform?
Weather protection? Maybe. But more and more people are spending their lives in home-apartments-offices-cars, equipped with air conditioning and heaters. Moving from one comfortable room to another, they often do not even notice the vagaries of the weather. Prosperity indicator? It may very well be. However, in all honesty, we must honestly admit that today, clothes can be misleading. Of course, we will distinguish a girl in jeans from a lady in an "haute couture" evening dress. But, looking at an elegant business lady, it is difficult to say with certainty what origin her suit has: was it bought in a prestigious boutique or was it successfully sewn according to a pattern from Burdmoden?
Clothing remains as an opportunity for self-expression. Perhaps this feature of her will remain eternal. But, in addition, modern clothing is designed to be comfortable and to give its owner a good mood. Yes exactly. Often, our mood does not depend on our well-being, the people around us and the work performed, but on what we are wearing and how we look. It's no secret that an unsuccessful outfit can ruin the whole day, and, conversely, an elementary change of costume can correct the worst mood.
How do you learn to "model a mood" with clothes? Let's try to solve this problem. Most often we choose a costume based on the characteristics of the figure and the place or event for whom it is intended. But we do not always think about his compliance with our character and temperament. True, most often this correspondence is achieved spontaneously. But there are times when the "autopilot" does not work. It is good if you have to spend this day at home, or in the country, or with old-old friends. What if a business meeting awaits you? How can you work productively if you feel "out of place"? Therefore, the process of bringing your outfit in accordance with your character should be made conscious and well controlled.
So, the first type. You are used to living at a fast pace and not wasting time. Work, sports training, meeting friends - you have time to do everything. People around you appreciate your directness and frankness. You are practical and do not like frills, but you value convenience and comfort. You prefer to spend your weekends in nature. In this case, frills, soft flowing fabrics, tall "hairpins" are not for you. You feel most comfortable and freer in jeans, a bulky jacket with deep pockets, a soft sweater with a funny pattern and your favorite sneakers. However, your favorite clothes can get bored both you and those around you. Of course, you should not radically change your style, but it is still worth making small changes to your appearance. For example, change jeans for trousers, especially since the choice of fabrics and styles is simply huge. And again, the "military" style is in vogue, allowing you to stand out from the crowd by 100%. Yes, one more subtlety: jeans are not appropriate in every setting. The same cannot be said about trousers: with the appropriate additions, they will fit into any situation.
Type two. You know how to boldly experiment. An old skirt and a shabby jacket can be used to create something very stylish! You feel equally comfortable in trousers, a sports windbreaker and a colored sundress. You do not have any special preferences in clothes, you choose a new thing, following your mood or the advice of a friend. Here, problems can arise only in terms of the compatibility of different elements of your wardrobe. A little tip: don't be afraid of surprises, try alternative ultra-fashionable makeup and nail polish, put on an incredible hairstyle on your head … You will see so much more fun!
Type three. Sometimes it seems to you that you are very behind the times. Fashion friends think you are outdated. You are a romantic and dreamy girl. An evening spent at home with a book is not a lost one. You would like to live in the last century, wearing long dresses and a black veil. Why not? Today you are at the height of fashion! Romance and "non-modernity" again took to the catwalks. Pastel silk blouses, lace collars, black velvet skirt, amber ring - try to imagine yourself as a mysterious heroine. Curls, delicate scent of perfume - this is your style, and do not be shy about it!
Fourth type. Your ideal is a feminine and sexy girl at the same time. You know how to look weak and helpless when you need it. You look attractive in the eyes of the opposite sex. But you would like to become even more seductive. Well, don't be afraid of short skirts and high heels - the main thing is not to swing on them! Fishnet tights, a skirt, a black jacket will give you the missing chic. Try red polish, pearlescent lip gloss, but remember: many men avoid overly flamboyant women. It's important for you not to get funny!
I hope these tips will help you to change something in your appearance. But I want to repeat once again: to look great, it is not enough to have a stylish suit. It is important to feel good in it. Therefore, here are some more rules of "good mood" in clothes.
First of all, comfort.
If you have put on such a tight-fitting suit that you have to walk with a tightened belly "while breathing in", then soon you will really fizzle out. On the other hand, a shapeless hoodie will not cheer you up either. It is better to dwell on semi-adjacent things from new varieties of knitwear or gabardine, which perfectly keeps its shape.
Tenderness and affection.
Soft silk and the most delicate cashmere are in fashion again, and among the synthetic ones there are fabrics that you just want to touch. Why choose something scratchy or scratchy?
Only a slender figure!
If it seems to you that the thing you like makes you look fat, give it up. And try to get rid of such "treasures" already in your wardrobe without regret.
Highlight your dignity.
A long, slender neck should not be hidden in a turtleneck. Modern straight shoulders will be outlined by a slim-fitting T-shirt, and beautiful legs need transparent tights and nice shoes.
The right accent.
No one disputes the fact that black makes the figure more graceful. But, diluting the "darkness" with a flying colored scarf of bright fresh shades, you yourself involuntarily smile.
Comfortable and elegant.
In the evening after work and on weekends, you want to dress in something casual, casual and very comfortable. Much more feminine than jeans with sneakers, trousers of gentle pastel colors and shoes like "sneakers" look.
The desired color.
Much is already known about the effect of color on mood. Before choosing an outfit for the day, listen to yourself, imagine your feelings in color. Naturally, in a "blue" mood, a red suit will only cause a feeling of discomfort.
