What is SELF IMAGE?
Image is what you see and self image is an image of yourself in your own eyes.
Body Image is what you think of your own body in your own mind.
How are Image and Style connected ?
How you perceive your body image directly affects the way you dress , the way others look at you and also the way they respond to you in a given situation or an occasion.
Eg. When you think less of yourself , your image in your eyes reduces . You become reclusive. You want to hide and not stand out. Therefore you dress also with your posture receding and trying very hard to blend in with the crowd. You wear subdued colours to hide in. The others look at you as a bystander and a non relevant person.
Remember the saying '"Dress to be addressed””
What you wear and how you wear it has direct connection with how people think about you. Visual impression is 90% of your image. That does not mean you wear what you think is fashionable and trendy. Following the herd mentality does not win you brownie points. What is required is class and poise for people to look up to you.
