Most women when getting dressed focus on the body parts they like least. This is completely the wrong way of going about dressing, what we should focus on first is our portrait as that provides the distraction to your ‘communication centre’ (ie. face).
Watch this short video which explains how you should go about doing so.
You are so full of great advice, it’s amazing. In winter I tend to wear more scarves to fill in that chest area and though it feels a bit busy sometimes, I like being warm and it does emphasise the ‘portrait’ area.
Thanks Shelley – yes – scarves are great in winter to add warmth and interest
Very good point, and well illustrated by the effect of your necklace in the video.
Thanks Silvertree – it’s amazing what a piece of jewellery can do
great advice, thanks!
As a “non-shoe” person I am always glad to have more justification for spending/focusing on my upper body rather than my feet, ha.
ps Those colors are so good on you it certainly illustrates your point!
Vix – not saying the whole lot isn’t important… but so many women focus below the waist rather than above it! And in the end, your shoes will be under the table for much of the time – but we do notice them entering and leaving the room.
Could earrings also serve this purpose?
Absolutely – particularly if they are larger in scale, a tiny pair of studs won’t do much though!
How about that? I’m doing something right. I always “dress the portrait” because (1) my lower body is not something I want to draw the eye to! Also (2) I love necklaces, earrings & pins and (3) the only mirror in my house is the one over the bathroom sink, so I can only see the “portrait” anyway! (Although I do sometimes climb up and balance on the edge of the tub to see if there’s something wrong with the lower bits before heading out into the world.)
Nomi – great that you’re dressing your portrait – but still worth getting a full length mirror so you can see the whole picture not just the detail!
