As we have discussed previously, your appearance is very important and we are now going to take a closer look at fashion.
Having a good sense of style is beneficial to you as it will make you appear high status, and get you noticed. Furthermore, knowing that you look good is great for the confidence, which is never a bad thing!
In part 1, we talked about the benefits of the “preppy” look. Even simpler than this, a good look to go for is simple one-colour clothing with the logo of a recognisable fashion label.
Stay away from the wacky, over the top, expensive clothes from the top fashion designers as they are not particularly appealing to women.
Labels you should be wearing
Now, another important factor to consider is obviously your budget. Below is a summary of a few brands which have been labelled as either “minted or skinted”. The minted brands are the expensive top designer labels that you probably know the names of already, and the skinted brands are the trendy but reasonably priced high street labels.
If you can afford the top brands then they are recommended over the high street labels as they will reflect the luxurious and high social status that you are looking for. Don’t let this put you off if you can’t afford them though, as the cheaper brands will still convey the stylish image, just not as effectively.

- Dolce Gabbana
- Louis Vuitton

Choosing the right colours
Now that you know what to wear, the next stage is to get the colours right, which is quite simple to do. Some people just instinctively “get” this and can put colours together easily but most of us can’t do this without a little bit of assistance.
It is best to keep things as simple as possible when it comes to colours, so limiting each of your outfits to just three colours or shades is a good start.
Below are a few fundamental rules that you must follow:
- No Navy with Black
- No Brown with Black
- No Red with Green (unless it is Christmas time)
Another good rule to follow is to match pale clothes with pale shoes, and dark clothes with dark shoes, which will avoid the cardinal sin of wearing too many colours that don’t complement each other.
These are colours opposite each other on the wheel e.g. purple and yellow orange and blue.
These colours are adjacent to each other e.g. orange, yellow-orange and yellow.
Quite simply, when putting together an outfit, stick to either complementary or analogous colours.
Feeling the colour
Extending the colour theme a bit further, the colour of your clothes can say something about your personality and even influence someone’s judgement of you. Here is a whirlwind guide to psychological colours:

The most emotionally intense colour, red stimulates a faster heartbeat and breath. It is popular in decorating and in fashion because it is light, neutral, and goes with everything.
