Dressing up is one of those tasks that everyone does daily. However, dressing up correctly or for a given occasion is something completely different. Deciding which clothes to wear can get a bit frustrating when you do not know how to choose the most appropriate attire for the day, yet you have to look your best. Below are a few tips that can come in handy on such mornings.
Balance the Proportions
If you have some parts of your body that you are proud of, you will probably want to show them off. A slim waist or toned arms are examples of what you might want to show off. At the same time, you will want to downplay some of the body parts with which you are not very comfortable. A good way to balance everything is to add opposite volume. For example, if you have a heavier upper body, you should consider wearing a leg-wide pair of trousers and something that is fitting on the upper body. Balancing will help to give you a more natural and attractive look.
Consider Your Age When Wearing Trendy Clothes
If you are into fashion, you will probably want to wear what is trendy at the time. However, not all trendy wear will be suitable for you. Something to remember is that just because it looks good on everyone else does not necessarily mean that it has to look good on you. Some fashion trends are also meant for a specific age group. Do not wear such if you do not belong to that age group. Try to find a similar version of the trendy wear that is designed for your age group.
Consider the Fit
Irrespective of the design or price of your dress, you will not look dashing in it if it does not fit you properly. You should thus always buy clothes that fit you properly and are designed for your body type. Keep in mind that your body size or shape can change with time. That means that the dress you bought a year ago might have been a perfect then but no longer fits you well.
Show Your Skin Selectively
Showing too much of your skin will give people a bit too much to look at that they probably will not even notice your dress. A good balance of what you cover and what shows always works best, unless you are going to the beach. The design also matters when it comes to how much skin you show. For example, a skirt that is a few inches above the knees may not raise eyebrows if it is flared compared to if it is tight.
