Look Modelicious in Fashion Finds For The Average Woman

Embrace Your Age

Just because you are not in your twenties anymore doesn't mean you have to make reckless fashion choices. Month after month I flip through countless ads in fashion magazines and see tiny little models donning the new designs meant for body sizes zero through four. These sizes do not reflect the average woman, so don’t despair. Many of these garments are really beautiful but not practical and sometimes not even wearable. There are many attractive styles to choose from that can enhance your womanly curves and make you feel and look as good as ever.

Don't Hide Under Bulk

The idea is not to hide your body. Although we all have our own ideas of what a perfect body looks like, we are definitely not perfect. There are plenty of ways to enhance what we have naturally or distract from a part of our physical self we don't want extra attention focused on. This doesn't have to mean hiding under heavy bulky layers to find comfort. That will only end up making all your efforts useless, because you have defeated yourself, both emotionally and physically. Instead, concentrate on your good features and which ones you can see potential for improving. If you haven't done this before, take a really long look in a full length mirror and make a note of what you see. What is your basic shape? Are your limbs long or short? What basic styles look good on you? Jot these down in a small book you can fit into your purse, along with your measurements. When you go shopping again, you will have a general reference instead of wasting so much time guessing about sizes, styles, colors, etc.

Enjoy Being Fashionable At Work and Play

Let your creative fashion sense come to life and try different looks you haven't thought of before. Try out different colors, color blocking, and prints you never considered would be a good match for your fashion sense. If you are shy, look at fashion trends on the web or subscribe to a magazine to explore what you would like to try for new looks. You don't need to spend hundreds every month to stay current with the latest popular fashion items. Separates work well, because you can play with different textures and colors. Often times, these create quite a growing line of clothing over time you can add to regularly without spending a fortune.

Pay Attention to How you Feel

Don't begin transforming your fashion image in debt. Shop for sales items or even go to a used clothing store that has styles you would like to experiment with, before launching a large investment in clothing. What may look great in the dress shop may not have the same appeal, once you are out from under the "magic lighting" many stores seem to have. Take your new image seriously and start out slow but keep the momentum going, until you have achieved an ideal look that is flattering and age appropriate. Before you know it, your inner beauty will come out and embrace your new personal style everyone will be complimenting you about.
