Whether you are a fashionista or clueless when it comes to what to wear at any given time, fashion is just a part of life. No matter who you are or what type of life you lead, there are going to be times when you need to dress up, and times when it is OK to dress it down a bit. Sometimes it can be confusing or difficult to decipher which times are which, and that’s when lists like this one come in handy! Here are 3 fashion tips for just about every occasion imaginable.
Don’t Outshine A Bride
If you are wondering what to wear to a beach wedding, or you have gotten an invitation to a wedding you assume is formal but you have not received any word on the dress code, it can be easy to get stressed out. One of the best rules of thumb, though, no matter the wedding you are attending, is to never outshine the bride.
Don’t wear white or any variation of white unless you have explicit permission from the bride herself that this is appropriate. It is important that you allow the bride to be the star of the show on her special day unless she expresses to you otherwise, so always err on the side of caution. There are plenty of other colors and patterns you can wear!
Read The Room
If you are completely unsure of what to wear to a specific event, you should consider what type of occasion it is, and “read the room” before you walk into it, so to speak. For example, if this is a work event or a family event, you may choose to dress a little more on the conservative side. If it is going to be a party-type environment with people a lot younger than you attending, you may decide to show a little more skin.
Being yourself and letting your personality shine through your style is important no matter what the circumstance. Even if there is a strict dress code, you can still stick in little pieces of yourself and make any look your own!
Even with constrictions, there are ways to stand out and be unique. Allow the boundaries to force you to be even more creative and you can figure out a way to be yourself no matter the occasion.
Fashion is not always easy. Especially for those who don’t feel like they have their own style completely harnessed. However, with these simple tips, being fashionable can be easier than ever. There are so many different occasions to attend in your lifetime and now you will no longer have to worry about what to wear!
