There is always a fear of being caught in the wrong dress.
What if you are overdressed? What if you are underdressed? Does the dress compliment you? Is it suitable for the occasion?
Countless questions flood in your head and your social anxiety will probably kick in when you reach your destination.
To make sure that you can own the dress you wear when you walk in, here are 7 ways to dress smartly.
No, I am not body-shaming anyone. By size, it does not mean that you force your plus size body in a zero figure dress or push your zero figure body in a plus size dress.
Make sure you buy a dress that fits your body. A dress that is too tight will only suffocate you. Pain is not always gain. But wearing extra lose clothes is not an answer either.
Extra efforts can take you a long way. Find the right size for your body.
Make sure the seams of your clothes are lying flat.
What’s the Occasion?
You don’t want to wear casual jeans to the Friday night party or dress when you go camping. Identify the occasion and choose your attire appropriately.
It may be a bit confusing to decide. In such cases, consult a friend or do what us Gen Z people do the best, Google it.
Check a couple of websites and decide what suits your taste and occasion.
Dress for Your Body.
Don’t buy a dress for when you may lose weight or gain weight. Buy dresses for your current size. Planning ahead isn’t bad, but make sure you do not neglect your current body.
You can always use optical illusions to make your size suit your vision. Different kinds of patterns, lines, colours and prints will change the way that you appear to others.
Know The Taste Of Your Body
Try out different kinds of outfits, experiment and know what suits your body the most.
Know which kind of patterns, prints and styles flatter your body. Knowing this will save you time when you shop in the future. Look out for how the clothes stay on your body and buy accordingly.
Play With Colours
Try a range of colours and decide on what suits your style, taste and skin complexion.
It also makes it easier for you to mix and match your clothes when you know your colours. Black, Grey and Brown are the go-to colours regardless of your skin tone.
A right accessory can turn your plain outfit to something fashionable and a wrong accessory can turn a fashionable outfit into something bizarre.
Accessories don’t include only earrings, necklaces and such. It also includes sunglasses, hats, scarves and shoes. So, experiment and find the right accessory for your dress.
It’s Your Unique Style.
Create your own personal style. Fashion magazines may not always be the right choice for you. The current fashion may not match your tastes or style. So forget the current fashion and wear what you feel comfortable in.
Experiment and know what suits you. You may dress to impress but don’t lose your comfort in the process. Find your own balance and own the dress you wear.
