Do you want to become really, really ridiculously good-looking? Well, anybody can!
Being really, really ridiculously good-looking doesn’t mean you have to be a model with the perfect bone structure and that your hair looks better done up with gel and mousse than hidden under a stupid hat with a light on it, as you perfect your “Blue Steel” look.
Beauty is undoubtedly in the eye of the beholder displayed by the one who knows how to apply beauty to oneself. Each year, consumers spend billions and billions of dollars on the latest clothing trends and cosmetics to making themselves look their best, and you can certainly take advantage of all what the fashion and beauty industry has to offer.
How about if do want to look like a model? Looking like a model can be realized with the suited clothing and once you understand the concept of “high fashion” – which is synonymous with the model runway looks during Fashion Weeks.
The primary themes of “high fashion” typically revolve around exclusivity and uniqueness to make you stand out above the everyday crowd to make others want to associate themselves with you.
If you’ve never had a sensitive appreciation and inclination toward aesthetics, then think what normally captivates and is aesthetically-pleasing for your own eyes.
That being said, take into consideration the followings to make yourself appear like a model in your own environment, no matter where you are and what you’re doing.
The Personal Styling
What’s your personality like? What group do you want to associate with? How do you want people to perceive you?
These are important questions that you want to ask before settling on dressing for the occasion in order to know how to rise above what everybody else commonly wears. Once you’ve grasped the gravitated style for fitting in, take that style up a notch based off of your own unique sense of self.
Think in terms of fashion and design. What fashion company do you identify with? If you pick one, then you can isolate certain clothing to look like the models who are wearing their clothes on runways and catalog pages. Probably the easiest thing anybody can do to make themselves look like a model is to buy clothing from any of the high-end fashion houses: Versace, Prada, Hugo Boss, Calvin Klein, Giogorio Armani, Burberry, and many more.
Of course, owning these brands is not in reach of everybody’s paycheck, so there are ways to get around that by owning similar looking alternatives.
The Full Clothing
Work with a full-set outfit, e.g., an outfit that comes with its own unique jacket, shirt, slacks or shorts, socks, and shoes together. Why? The thing about high-end fashion is that usually the clothes work coherently for the full body – meaning the upper-wear, bottom-wear, inner-wear, and outer-wear are designed to complete the full-package look. Think wearing a suit or a dress; it’s a full-body look rather than a divergent look consisting of any t-shirt for the upper-part and blue-jeans (or any color jeans that don’t match the upper-part) for the bottom-part.
Whatever you wear for the upper-part has to match the bottom-part, and vice versa, or minimally diverges from each other. This is why often wearing all black is considered the safest route to appear sophisticated, and fashionable, because it’s a full-complete packaged look that transitions nicely from top to bottom. There is a myriad of ways you can go about this that will help you start looking like a model.
If you don’t want to buy a full outfit, then start with an outer clothing, i.e., a jacket, a top, or something that is meant to be worn on top of other clothing, because here’s a fashion hack – it doesn’t even have to matter what you wear underneath as long as what people see on the outer layer is enough to enhance your overall look.
Try This: Wear a basic blue jeans and white t-shirt or the most bland clothing you can find. Then you put on a chic leather jacket, pea coat, or trench coat. See how that one outer piece makes all the difference, or the only difference, overlooking your committed fashion sins underneath.
The Custom Fitting
Now here’s a pivotal key to looking like a model. Get outfits that are well-fitted because models are often in custom-fitted clothing to accentuate their bodies. Do not let anything hang too loose, and most of all, no baggy clothes!
Keep in mind, this especially applies to the world of high-end fashion, not commercial wears (for everyday Joes and soccer moms at local Walmarts) nor street wears (for youths copying whatever else everyone is wearing to fit in) where the “perfectly well-fitted” factor is, shall we say, less loose. Unless, of course, that’s what you want to go for rather than the model look being discussed this whole time, salute to you.
Dressing like a model requires a bit of customization, not only purchasing clothing that is trendy and appealing. If you must, hire a tailor or a seamstress to ensure that everything you put on your body custom-fits perfectly.
All in all, follow these guidelines to improve your looks and be the model fashion figure in whatever environment you’re in. Your clothing needs to look great when you wear it, fitted for your body type, and not only works for the occasion but amps it up just by your presence being there, as its model.
