They say ‘diamonds are a girl’s best friend’ and I certainly wouldn’t want to make any exceptions. However I don’t doubt the impact my treasured and loved Barbie doll made on me through all my younger years. The doll was a symbol of my youth, a love of fashion and brought a sense of enjoyment to “beautify” my special doll. There was never a day that passed that I wouldn’t change her clothes, accessorize and perfect her. This situation is seemingly familiar to every woman in the world; and even as a child, we were already indulging with the invention of makeover games.
With the advancement of technology and the accessibility of the world at your fingertips; the growth of makeover games has developed from dressing your Barbie Doll to the various software applications that accommodate our wardrobe makeover needs. A once typical dress up game that evolved in our bedrooms has transformed into an online atmosphere. Online makeover games are those that give you a template of a doll and a variety of clothing options to dress the template with. From a styling perspective, it is a creative and clever way to challenge you and instill a sense of confidence in your knowledge of fashion.
How does one play real life makeover games?
It’s easy. You don’t have to overwhelm yourself in purchasing a wardrobe to orchestrate a makeover. The answer can be found within your wardrobe. Our education of makeover games reminds us of our abilities to style and accessorize with limited items we may have. This is a relatively easy concept to follow because you can also mix and match your clothes to suit your personality, body shape and style.
What about the rules?
The inevitable truth in the fashion industry is that it will continue to grow and change on a daily basis. However this does not insist that you have to tire yourself by staying up to date for the day-by-day changes. What was once the trend a month ago can still be applied to your desired wardrobe today. This is evident by the “reinvention” of vintage dresses and accessories from decades of 60’s, 70’s 80’s and 90’s. The rules of fashion don’t just apply to a makeover game. They are a key component of your everyday life and your fashion style. If you have faith and confidence in dressing someone else, don’t be shy to look at yourself and know what’s best for you, after all this is your individual style and trusting yourself is the key to a happy and fashionable you!
