  FASHION SENSE - by Editor
Not all of us are born with an eye for fashion. For many, dressing well is hard work. But, the result is well worth the effort, so, give it a shot!


Today, more than ever, a person's appearance plays an important role in how he is perceived and treated by others. If you dress well, you get taken more seriously. You get treated with respect. People are more likely to want to interact with you, and employers are more likely to hire you. The way you dress says a lot about the kind of person you are. People unknowingly form an impression about you as soon as they see you and this impression may or may not be true. A sloppy dresser may come across as someone not serious about his work, while a sharp dresser may come across as someone always on top of things.

Make it a point to dress well always so you don't pass on a negative opinion of yourself even if it's true! Here are some tips on how you can pump your fashion sense up by a few notches.


Read

Study magazines and observe how the models dress. And no, it is not a good idea to study Filmfare, Showtime and the like. Steer clear of film magazines if you are looking for dress tips. Instead, opt for fashion focused magazines. At times you may find something you like in a magazine, but it may be exorbitant. Remember, you don't need to buy the exact same thing to replicate a look.


Shop carefully

When shopping, don't buy anything and everything that appeals, or you will find yourself stuck with more clothes than you will ever wear, and a lot less money! Instead, shop smart. Know what you want before you go shopping. Those that do this almost always dress better than those that don't and by spending a whole lot less. It is true that some people have a great eye for fashion and can tell that something will look great by just looking at it, but if you don't have a similar eye, then don't waste your money.


Be creative

Many of us find wearing salwar kameezes so much easier because we don't need to spend a lot of time figuring out what we should wear with what. We buy the entire set ready-to-wear, and all we need do is wear a matching bindi and bangles. However, when it comes to western wear, we do need some help.

Many of us have a few pairs of blue jeans, and then pick up a plethora of t-shirts to wear with these jeans. Be creative. Don't wear jeans all the time. Wear a skirt every once in a while, wear cropped trousers at times, and wear a dress at other times. However, pairing clothes together does take some skill, which is why referring to magazines helps.


Observe

Similarly, other shops put together an entire look perhaps on a mannequin, and if you like it, you can pick up the entire outfit if you can afford to do so. If you cannot afford to purchase the entire outfit at one go, do so in stages. Or, buy an expensive top and pair it off with a less expensive skirt, similar to the one you saw on the mannequin! A good idea would be to take photographs on your cell phone of looks that you like. Sometimes you don't realize how some clothes can look really good or really bad unless you observe it on others.
