If you are looking to make any improvements on your appearance to improve your overall level of style, there are dozens of ways in which you can start to make changes. The first course of action is to understand why you want to make improvements. It could be to attract somebody new into your life of high quality, it could be to improve your professional career, or it could be to gain appreciation from others in terms of your aesthetics.
Most people looking to make changes will talk with friends, read a magazine or even talk to an image consultant. In a top 10 US population city like Dallas, the need to stand out in terms of style – combined with so much competition – can drive people to do all sorts of weird things!
Assuming that your reasons for wanting to improve are based on healthy, sound logic then it you can never go wrong by actually improving your physical body. Most people automatically will be sold all sorts of things like:
- casual clothing
- formal clothing
- accessories like shoes, jewelry, watches, etc.
- cosmetics like makeup and perfume or cologne
- luxury cars
- high end housing (condos, mansions, etc.)
- VIP memberships to “exclusive” social clubs and events
Before you invest your time and money in any of those, consider starting with the basics: your actual body. Having “style” without any sort of health to back it up is a weak foundation. Talk with your doctor to get up to date on all medical situations and get that taken care of first. You need your health, regardless of your style, so deal with the tough situations first and get those addressed.
Next, here is “behind the scenes” conversation from those who sell high-end jewelry, luxury cars, etc. Even though they gladly will sell you items priced way beyond what the average person can purchase, they always seem to wonder why someone would pay $25,000 for a luxury watch and not spend 1/10th of that to get their teeth fixed. Tooth/mouth/gum issues can be the origin for lots of disease and other problems, so get those fixed next.
From there, do what you can to get your body in shape. A great-looking physique – or even just major changes in your physique to becoming leaner AND more muscular (not just a drop in weight) – can attract more compliments than the finest clothing. It will help your overall health as well so long as you follow your medical professionals’ recommendations regarding your specific situation.
After you get your internal health, your physique, and your teeth improved – all of which are good things to have (!) – then start with the two most easy to change elements of your style: your hair and your eyes.
Hairstyles are part of the “fun” side of getting your image and style improved, but remember that it is part of a larger picture. Your eyes on the other hand need two parts to be addressed: your actual eye health and then the fun ways to make them more attractive.
About your eye health go to a reputable optometrist for all of the eye checkups that you need. This will likely include an eye exam, vision screening, etc. Be sure that they give you a full work up. Remember that your efforts to change your style don’t mean much if you can’t properly see your own improvements in the mirror!
Should you need glasses or a new prescription then you can boost your style by getting some prescription designer eyeglasses and frames. For example, here are some styles from an optometrist who carries Tom Ford eyeglasses in Highland Park.
People love seeing others who have bright, exciting, captivating eyes. Talk with your eye doctor about the prescription you need and even if you can get specific contact lenses should your new style require contacts instead of glasses.
While the accessories and clothing sounds so much more fun to discuss, remember that your style can greatly improve – along with your health (!) – if you work on the following first:
- your internal health
- your teeth
- your eyesight
- your body
Then you can worry about your hair style and your eyeglasses. Getting all of these in order should help attract more compliments and help you feel better about yourself in many ways. Then you can go splurge on the fun stuff!
