The lovely Debbie is guest blogging over on WhatLauraLoves today while I work on my final project for my masters degree. The deadline is drawing ever closer and I cannot wait to be finished as I have so many plans for my blog!
Hope you enjoy Debbie's post. I did.
Clothes make the wearer. Even before you talk, your clothes and how you look provides an insight on how you will act and how the people around you will react to you. Thus, it is important that the clothes you wear suit every event you go to, and make a statement for you.
Here are some clothes that make a fashion statement on different kinds of situations:
Depending on the work environment, your clothes can be casual or semi-formal. However, what it should always be is smart and professional.
When choosing clothes, pick styles according to your body type. If you prefer clothes that hug your figure, choose a suitable length and cut. Don’t wear a mini skirt to work, instead opt for a hip-hugging pencil skirt. If you prefer flowing clothes, don’t overdo it. Wear one at a time, and match it with one that suits your figure.
Neutral colors like black, grey, navy blue and brown are versatile colors. Incorporate accessories, including colorful and printed scarves, statement necklaces, or bracelets. The rule is not to go overboard with accessories – make them a part of your outfit and remember that less is usually more.
Working for five days a week can be stressful. Friday nights is the night to go for a night out with your girlfriends, or a movie with a loved one, or just spend the night at home, sipping wine and enjoying a quiet dinner with the family.
For the young and the young at heart, Friday is best spent outside partying. To make a statement the moment you enter the club or the dance floor, choose clothes that will hug your body and show your upbeat and active lifestyle. Invest in sexy party dresses; you always need one. Whatever the age, whatever the weather, you need no excuse to lay down your hair and party the night away. Subtle sparkles and that little black dress will also go a long way.
When attending a wedding, there is only one rule, don’t wear white because you might upstage the bride. Other than that, unleash your inner goddess and make a fashion statement.
If it is a daytime wedding, something light and breezy will do the trick. If it’s an evening wedding, cocktail dress is the way to go. Pick something sexy and easy to dance in. If it’s a black tie event, wear something smart and formal.
Black Tie Event
A black tie event is the time to unleash that inner queen. Wear a formal cocktail dress that skims the floor. Tonight is the night to show off your sparkling jewelry and beaded accessories. Drape a sheer glittering cape over your bare shoulders and walk inside the ballroom like you are royalty.
High-heeled strappy shoes are best for these events. However, don’t wear a dress or shoes that will restrict movement. Black-tie events often include some dancing and you wouldn’t want to be the only one sitting down while everyone is on their feet, would you?
There is no excuse for dressing up and making a fashion statement, whatever the event may be. Just know the rules, break them from time to time, but break them cautiously.
