Whether you’re going to a job interview, wedding, or any other special occasion, you will probably want to look sharp and dress as best as you can.
While most people think they need to spend a lot of money to look good, that couldn’t be further from the truth. Finding what you look good in can often be the least expensive option.
Here are 5 tips you can use when finding what to wear next time to that special occasion.
1. Wear The Right Sized Clothing
The most important rule of thumb in fashion is to wear the right sized clothing. That means if the type of clothing needs to be loose, it should be loose. If it needs to be tight, it should be tight, and so on.
When it comes to male fashion, suits should always be snug and tailored well. If you can’t afford to have your suits tailored, you can always use an online dress size calculator such as one found on Comfy-Penguin. These online calculators can help you choose the correct size of clothing for free.
Recently, MMA superstar Conor McGregor has made a lot of comments about looking good in tailored suits. He is bringing this trend into the spotlight and a lot of fashionistas are keeping an eye out on it.
2. Make Your Own Trend
Don’t follow others, but rather lead others. The best fashion styles are ones that are unique and fresh. Yes, you can wear bright colored polo shirts with golf shorts to get that authentic boy look, however, making your own style is even better.
There’s nothing worse than going to a party only to find everyone else dressed the same as you. That means you will not stand out and will be just another person there.
If you’re a woman who loves the little black dresses, that’s fine. There’s nothing wrong with that, however, the woman at the party that will get everyone’s attention is often one that’s wearing something flashy, bright, different and well sized. Showing your curves is a big part in looking good.
3. Don’t Worry About Prices
Prices, shmrices. Who cares? When it comes to dressing well, you do not need to empty your wallet. Yes you can go to Dillard’s or Banana Republic and buy some fancy clothes, but that’s not necessary to look good.
You can look just as good shopping on Amazon or going to your local Ross or discount retailer.
The main thing to keep in mind when going with lower-costing clothing is that sizing is EXTRA important there. Because a lot of those inexpensive clothes are badly sized, a lot of people look bad in them. But that does not necessarily mean that you cannot look great in those same clothes when sized correctly.
Another thing to check for with inexpensive clothing is the quality of the stitching. You do not want any clothes where the stitching is already coming off at the store. That means it will be coming off at your special occasion as well and that’s not going to help you look great.
4. Select The Right Colors for The Occasion
This one should be a no brainer, but don’t go wearing bright and colorful clothing to a funeral. Funerals should strictly be blacks and dark clothing.
Same rule applies for opposite occasions. If you’re going out to dinner with your love, don’t wear clothes that are too dark. Wear something that’s light, airy and appropriate. Don’t bring death to a romantic dinner.
The same way you select colors for occasions, you also need to select the right colors for the season.
5. Be Confident in Your Choices
No matter what clothes you select, you have to be confident in it. Without confidence, you will not look sharp and you’ll stick out like a sore thumb.
Whether you’re male or female, you need to project your confidence onto others in order to look spectacular. Nobody likes a person who’s self-conscious or shy.
It’s time to dress well and party it up at your next special occasion (as long as it’s not a funeral).
