Dress according to your body type
Talking about the first step, identify your body type. Do you have a full figure? Are you slim and tall? Whatever your body type is, the rule of the thumb is to always dress up according to that. Here are some cues for you –
- V-neck &long silhouettes make you look tall
If you are a person with short stature and voluptuous figure, then you can focus the attention to right areas by wearing V-neck outfits. If you want to make yourself look tall, stick to long silhouettes.
- Asymmetrical and boat necks for accentuating your curves
If you have a slim figure with a tall frame and you need to highlight your curves. Invest in some dresses that will create an illusion of curvy look. The best dresses in this category are asymmetrical dresses or those with boat necks.
Accessorize with a statement watch
A watch is an accessory with style and utility. You can’t call any dress complete unless you pair a watch with it. Such is the power of an accessory like the watch.
For women who work in the corporate field, a watch is an absolute necessity. This is why brands are shelling out millions in making designer watches. Recently the rose gold trend made a huge noise. Silver is back with a bang too. You can’t help but swoon over those lovely dual contrasting watches. Take your pick too and let your dress be complete.
Shoes are the most important
Shoes are something which can make or break an outfit. They can alleviate even a plain dress or they can entirely ruin a statement dress if worn wrong.
So pay attention to your shoes. The best rule to remember is that your shoes should always match your bag! Yes, note it down, ladies! Or if not possible, the shoes and bag must complement each other. Peep toes in nude shade are the most versatile shoes that will go with any outfit in the world.
