Dressing for Function rather than Artistic Expression


What you wear matters

Dressing is a very personal affair. It impacts how we think about ourselves and how others perceive us. It is this vast scale of emotional connection that makes dressing so important. Dressing is an art. And just like any other form of art, dressing has the power to communicate. How you dress determines how other people perceive you. It is therefore important to dress right so that you can project the right message to people. Certain rules guide how you should dress. In this article, we are going to talk about the dressing rules that you should observe so that you can look great. And by rules, it doesn’t mean you will never achieve a stylish look if you do not subscribe to these rules. These rules are simply helpful things that you might be missing or failing to do consider in your dressing. They might just be what you need to transform your look and feel. Here are the most basic rules you should follow as a lady to maintain an elegant look and uphold your dignity.

Dressing with a signature style

Undergarments play a huge role in looking and feeling your best in your clothing. Unfortunately, most of us barely give it a second thought. We randomly choose our undergarments without taking some time to think whether they really suit us or not. Find your perfect bra by checking your band size and cup size. Finding the bra that fits you perfectly makes all the difference. Get a bra of good quality that you can wear for a long time. Ideally, choose a bra that matches your skin tone and preferably one with seamless caps. The bra you choose should effectively be a wear-everywhere bra. A bra that you can wear at any time and still feel comfortable and supported. It should be soft and easy to wear so that you feel happy and confident when you are in it. It should not be brightly colored so that it does not show through clothing. It should match your skin tone and melt into your skin.

Avoid wearing white undergarments under white clothing. You have probably heard a contradictory opinion about this. Many people make the mistake of wearing white underpants on white which leaves them exposed from miles away. Your undergarments should be undetectable. Wearing white does the opposite. It only makes them more apparent. Your underwear should not reveal lines. It should be seamless and unrevealing.Ensure your underwear is functional, comfortable, and it’s not showing through your clothing.

Size up white garments

We all search for the white perfect shirt, shoes, pants, etc. If your pants or dress is white and very tight, it will reveal what is underneath it. Instead, opt for something that is slightly oversize but fitting. Tailor it to make sure that it fits you perfectly.

Have you ever wanted to look a little bit taller? This next rule is for you. You don’t have to try so hard. It’s always nice to trick the eye using your clothing.

Go for shoes that match your skin or close to it as much as possible.

Wear something high-waisted. It could be a pair of jeans or pants or a skirt. This tricks the eyes into making your legs look extended and longer. The shoe and your skin combine to create an effect that makes you look elongated. Creating that illusion always works.

Avoid color clashing

Keep colors in the same family. Find the color that you like and make them go together. It is a great way of getting the best out of your wardrobe. There are two main categories of colors: warm colors (yellow-based colors) and cool colors (blue-based colors). To create a great look, do not interchange these color brackets. Wear cool colors with cool colors and vice versa. Keep this in mind and pint point your own color pallets. So if you have been trying so hard to dress stylishly but you can’t seem to hack it, maybe you are getting the colors all wrong. If you have a problem getting your colors right, maybe you should get a color mill. It will help you get the colors right and give you a wide variety of color combinations.

High-quality clothes

Find a natural fabric such as wool, cotton, linen, silk, etc. Clothes made from natural fibers have more durability and you can wear them for the long haul. Look for clothes that have a high-quality finish. Even stitches and high-quality zippers. Ensure that all the buttons are intact and observe the pattern. The clothes should also fit very well with clean shoulder lines and even sleeve lengths.

There you have it. These are the few things that you need to be mindful of when choosing what to wear. They will undoubtedly help you redefine your dressing. They will help you put your outfits together in a more thoughtful way and give you the look that you want. It’s time to cultivate your wardrobe and personal style. Dressing with a signature style that is memorable and makes you feel good.
