When an accountant walks past you, it’s very easy to know he’s an accountant, same applies to a teacher, a lawyer, engineer, carpenter, model, Dj, socialite a pastor e.t.c. And do you know why?
The answer lies in the way they dress.
Since that’s their social life, it defines who they are, what they wear, how they talk, walk and even surprisingly, expressions that they use. If you remember in my last article we said that, one of the attributes of personality was social interactions; see more thttps://akubrafashion.wordpress.com/2017/03/28/if-it-feels-good-wear-it.
That is, who he/she regularly hangs out with, what he/she does on a daily basis, is she an introvert or an extrovert and so on. For instance, what do you think would happen if a teacher went to a class dressed as a Dj? Off course nothing stops him. But why do you think he wouldn’t dare?
I will tell you why. There’s only one reason he wouldn’t, and it’s coz it simply doesn’t feel right!!
He will look at himself on the mirror, smile and like whatever he sees, but deep inside he will have that tangling feeling, nagging him, telling him to remove it. This has happened to you too I’m sure. I know it has to me.
Yes the Dj clothes are perfect, he’d probably look great and charming to the young teenagers. But the truth is, he wouldn’t be comfortable, that’s the truth.

Understanding once self is crucial towards ensuring that cloths look good on you. Noticed I said, “cloths look good on you” and not “you look good in cloth” I say this because that’s where we all get it wrong.
Everyday we struggle with trying to look good in the cloths we wear, but the reality is, we should be striving to ensure that cloths look good on us.
I know you’ve probably heard of the phrase “ he would even make rags look good.” If this phrase has been used on you, please give yourself a thumps up, coz my brother, you’ve managed to push through the fashion membrane.
What does this mean though; (to push through the fashion membrane) It simply means you’ve studied yourself, undertaking a series of trial and error. Trying hard to understand yourself and what works for you. Such that you can take a single glance at lets say shoes or a dress, a trouser and just know this will definitely do it for me without even trying it on. And vice versa.
Believe me I would love to go on coz there’s so much to say but we’ll have that time. However I’m leaving you with this one advice. Please understand yourself. That is, your personality, and that means, your beliefs, moral value traditions, your environment, age, your profession, friends and so on, coz trust me they have a serious effect on how cloths look on you. Then through trial and error, dress that personality. And you’ll know when you’ve finally done it.
Thanks for stopping by! We shall delve more on this on our next article.
Lastly, there’s is nothing good to a woman than a man who look good and knows it!!
