How to Have Better Proportioned Dressing

It is the real secret to dressing well.

Every man and woman has a least one part of his or her body that they wish was larger or smaller. Most would not admit to just anyone other than closest friends about this wish.
Fortunately, there is another option than plastic surgery to adjust the optical illusion of your body to one of a better proportioned body. It is a function of the way the eye and brain work to create a new optical illusion that is more pleasing to our eyes.

Your body did not change, just the way your brain interpreted what the eye was seeing. It is very exciting to know that this can happen just by the way the clothing and accessories are worn.
This ideal calculation for the clothing and accessories you are selecting to wear is determined by the brain and calculated instantly. The decisions that the brain makes are influenced by the position of your clothing and accessories and those fortunately can be adjusted to improve the image illusion and change the way the brain sees you.

There are a variety of effects that can be achieved. Some look taller, some slimmer, some shorter and some even appear more credible. Who knew that the clothing and accessory position could be so influential? Besides it is a relief to know that clothing and accessories can aid you in creating the optical illusion of a better proportioned body.

Make a list of the following body parts: shoulders, chest, waist and hips. When finished, look closely at yourself in the mirror. If any of these parts look disproportionate on your body, place a check mark next to them on the list and write a short explanation of the problem. Some common examples include narrow shoulders, small bust and wide hips. When finished, look at yourself again and make note of any body parts you especially like.
• Determine which illusions you would like to create based on what you have written.
• Learn how color and pattern create the optical illusion of changing size.
• Learn how texture affects a garment’s illusory capabilities.

Apply your new knowledge next time you go shopping for clothes. Before you remove something from the rack to try it on, ask yourself, “Do the colors, patterns and textures in this garment draw attention to the right places?” Don’t be afraid to be picky. For any given person, there are many more unflattering clothes out there than flattering ones; but this makes it all the more gratifying to find the right pieces.

Having this knowledge can give you a level of confidence and courage to continue to search for just the right clothing and accessories to add to your wardrobe and also to take out of your wardrobe.
If you have not worn something in a year, you need to give it a very serious evaluation to see why it should remain in your wardrobe. Granted some items are only worn occasionally to certain types of occasions that do not happen very often but those are the exception.

The ones you are really after are the closet hangers that just do not fit into the rest of your wardrobe and probably will not ever be worn. Some of those items still may have the price tags on them so you can identify them quickly and remove them easily. Someone somewhere else could use them and you could use the closet space you have opened up.

Nothing is more refreshing that to have the clothing and accessories that really do work and that are in good repair. visit the product page to find out more about your personal fashion formula.
