Style, Fashion And We

Image, Picture, fashion, style, clothing
Everybody wants to know how to dress cute and look appropriate in their daily life. Everyone has different meaning of fashion and style. Some people follow what others wear and how they look indeed this is not meaning of being stylish. Originality and individuality  matter a lot when it comes to being stylish, to me style is something that makes you note able in gathering. Style is about choosing your clothes accessories way of talking, dealing people collectively enhancing of personalty in an appropriate way. Style covers Expression, Clothing, Fashion sense and grooming.
[I read a fantastic article about style and fashion at "kinowear.com" and  in my article I include few points from that article with the permission of owner.]

It’s the total combination of the way you dress, talk, move your body, or do anything for that matter. Simply put, it’s how we express our inner being outwardly. This includes all of our thoughts, emotions, interests, and values. Everything on the outside is merely a reflection of what’s on the inside. You may say style gives moral directions or style is somehow the image of character.

Style, Fashion, Clothing, Girls fashion

Fashion is something that comes after style. Remember that "fashion can be bought. Style one must possess." What we wear isn’t going to make up our entire impression, it does make up over 80% of our first impression. What we wear is what will kick-start the impression we make on others before we even open our mouth. This is the place from which people will filter everything we say and do.

Just because style or expression doesn’t mean you can wear whatever you want while ignoring the message it’s conveying. There is a "language" that is spoken through specific types of clothing, that you must become familiar with in order to make a more positive influence than a negative one.
For example, picture a man in a well-fitted suit telling you that he runs a multi-national corporation and makes billions of dollars. Then, picture a man in an ill-fitting, dirty outfit telling you the same thing. Which would you believe more?

According to studies at the University of California, 93% of our communication is non-verbal. Imagine asking someone "How are you?" If that person replies "Fine" in a curt manner with a frown on their face, and their arms crossed, are they communicating that they really feel fine"?
The messages we get across to other people has very little to do with the words that we use. Besides body language, the tone, pitch, and volume we use in our voice is all part of non-verbal communication that is really at the heart of the words we use. Style is a simple way of saying complicated things. 

Style is an expression of individualism mixed with charisma. Style development is parallel to personal development. Who you really are is close to the way the world will perceive you. But personal development is more for yourself, whereas style development is what will help you become more effective in your dealings with other people. Learning more and developing your competence on fashion, attractive body language, and social skills, it’ll result in a more fulfilling relationships with friends, coworkers, and the opposite sex.

Tips for personal style: 
1: Be unique and be yourself.
2: Choose clothes that they should fit. Ask a friend or a sales' assistant if you're not sure that an outfit suits you.
3: Keep up with the latest trends, so that you know what's current and what isn't. Check fashion magazines and put your own twist on things!
4: Accessories are a great, cheap way to create a unique style. Add a couple of accessories - for example, a watch, necklace, ribbon or belt.
5: Wear something that matches your personal style as well as the outfit you are wearing.
6: Try not to look fake; don't wear something if it's not you.
7: Go for variety. For example, if you like pink, try different shades, not just bubblegum pink; there's dusty pink, baby pink, hot pink, etc.
8: Mix 'n' match from previous seasons.
9: It's better to go for quality than quantity.
10: Don't wear make-up that is too dark for your skin tone.
11: The difference between style and fashion is quality.
