When we are looking at a selection of stylists, or viewing photographs in glossy magazines and seeing them attractive clothing, we unwittingly imagine ourselves in it. At this moment, it seems to us that if we wear the same thing, we will look not worse than a fashion model. As a result, getting a similar thing, we often feel uncomfortable, we don’t like ourselves and understand that did a mistake. Why is this happening? The most common cause of our frustration becomes the inability to assess ourselves critically. We close our eyes to some of the nuances of the figure, height or age.
If the clothes are picked up correctly, first of all, to be seen the woman, her personality, and only then her decor. We can learn to manage the impression produced if we learn to separate the apparent from the reality. To do this, we must learn how to adequately and accurately assess our own characteristics, and then properly relate these features to clothes with we like.
Realization the nuances of your shape and a color type useful also in order to correctly evaluate the advice of professional stylists. If you see a collection of supposedly perfect summer or winter wardrobe, you need to understand that this is just a trend or direction for thought, but not a program for action. Clothing that is not properly matched to our body’s silhouette, cut and color, can lead to the opposite of the expected, effect.
Despite the fact that every day we see ourselves in the mirror and seems to be aware of our strengths and weaknesses, often saw our image in the video or photo, we express some confusion about our appearance. In such situations is most evident inconsistency of subjective evaluation of physical appearance, or the way we see ourselves, and objective reality, that is the way others see us.

Secondly, the idea of our own body depends on our emotional evaluation. If we don’t like our body we exaggerate its shortcomings. If you like it – we underestimate them, or even ignore. Thirdly, on the peculiarities of perception affects the appearance evaluation, we hear from the side. And it is not always an objective, or it may be out of date for an adult. Fourthly, there is not any one of the universal and recognized evaluation scale appearance parameters.
Therefore, all appeals for an objective assessment of ourselves seem useless without a specific algorithm of this procedure. In his book “Presentation of the body in clothes and without” Sister Sorin offer to take advantage of the following sequence.

1. Definition of the basic parameters of the shape
-volume of breast, thighs, under the breasts, waist
2. Determine how your shape corresponds to the generally accepted standard typology
3. Compare your shape with the most common non-standard options
4. Identify the real and apparent flaws of shape
5. Determination of color type of appearance.
Any deviation from objectivity in the evaluation itself is fraught with problems. Excessive criticality creates an internal discomfort and self-doubt. Lack of self-criticism complicates the lives of others and deprives a person the opportunity to correct the real disadvantages. Anybody cannot be happy without a good attitude to herself and her appearance. But to enjoy yourself you don’t have to be perfect. And such people, probably, does not exist in nature.
