My recent workshop at The American Club, “How to Look Like a Million Dollars” proved to be a great success – a special thank you to those who made it such an interactive session!!
A key theme that we discussed was the importance of dressing to suit your body type. If you get this wrong then you’ll never look your best, period. Participants were mainly from the US and UK and were refreshingly open to expressing their views and asking questions about how to accurately determine body type and shop accordingly. We had a fun time, relating the theme to personal experiences – it seems like an obvious thing but believe me even I was wrong about my own body until I measured myself. I think today, most fashion books and magazine articles fail to distinguish the differences in body types when it comes to giving fashion advice. They typically list suggested things to wear in order to look taller and slimmer and as we agreed in class this is often vague and of little real value.
After ladies recorded their measurements and identified their body types it was easy to narrow down fashion faux pas that can be avoided. Armed with this knowledge you can dress yourself to appear more symmetrical. As humans we are attracted to balance – symmetry. And the good news? You can fake symmetry!
We had a lot of fun and I’m eager to run another small session, so please sign up for my upcoming workshop so you too can look like a Million Dollars!!!!
