A great night out starts with the sometimes stressful process of getting ready. You don’t want to let your outfit rule the night – it should be a conversation starter not an “oh no they didn’t” moment. It all comes down to looking great without pushing the limits (that is what Halloween is for, after all). Follow these 3 Do’s and 3 don’ts and you should never be getting those judging looks, except out of sheer jealousy!
1. Know the right fit:
Notice the word fit, not size. Sizes vary from store to store and brand to brand so never judge something completely by it’s size. Try things on and see that they fit you correctly, that way you won’t waltz in the bar with far too much showing.
2. Find what style suits you best:
There are so many different styles to adhere to, don’t get stuck wearing something that just isn’t your style. Think to yourself, “Are you gutsy or chic?” When you come up with your style, then play around with pieces until you know what works.
3. Look at the weather:
Going out at night is a free-for-all of crazy outfits, but nothing is more ridiculous than wearing shorts or a tube top in the dead of winter. Whether it is cold or hot there are many ways to look great so be kind to your body dress appropriately for the weather.
1. Wear anything you will worry about all night:
That top may look amazing, but if you have to make sure it is covering you all night, you’re going to be miserable. Don’t wear anything you need your friends or you to keep in check. It’s just not worth it.
2. Take off your shoes:
This is definitely a girls issue. Ladies, heels can be cruel! Don’t be that girl, though, walking around barefoot with her heels in her hand. When you are buying shoes, look them up and read the reviews or wear them around the house a while. We all have those nights when they just must come off, but try your best to bring some cute flats in your purse.
3. Forget the details:
Any outfit can be amped up with some fun added details. For girls, this could include your accessories, handbag, and even make-up choices. For the gentlemen, try picking a fun color, a cool belt, or even some special shoes, because girls love when guys have good taste in shoes.
These are just some basic tips to avoid a fashion blunder. The most important thing to do is be yourself and keep up with the latest trends that suit you. Fashion is all about expression and fun, so when it is time to start primping for the night, go to your closet and get excited about all the opportunities and never let it be a source of stress.
