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
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
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.
