So you hope you’ve made it. You have a date with a man that doesn’t spend his off time in the bottom of a beer bottle or shout “Wooooooo!!” when one of his buddies arrives. You’re on the path to being a big girl.
Now is the perfect occasion to take a long hard and truly critical look at your wardrobe racks. Most girls do have a classic go-to date outfit, this guys hopefully not the kind that will stick around a girl that dresses like the homeless.
The issue is, we don’t always have a classically driven fashionista to follow. So we follow the trends of our friends. Not always a wise decision.
The problem with this issue of focus we have when it comes to clothing is: Dressing appropriately is close in importance to impressing a cultured man as education and knowing what to order while out.
Poor and Positive Fashion Role Models
Have you seen how they style those silly looking models in fashion magazines? High style clothing the average girl could never get away with, or can pay for, and layers upon layer of accessories and clothing that is way inappropriate for the majority of social situations.
The concept here is to use what you see as ideas and customize them to your taste. Take away the ridiculous and keep whatever works for you.
Mirror A Celebrity
Many of the glitterati have a way more natural style. (movie star, not rock star.) For the men – the ever handsome Clooney always looks good whether he’s at a premier or just out grabbing a bite. You can also search Google images or visit celebrity blogs to get an idea of how top celebrities dress.
Stay with Big Brands
There’s another way to keeping it stylish – find a brand you love, that fits your everyday, and stay with it. When it comes to high quality clothing big brands, there’s a ton of selection available. Lately, preppy brands are back, with a “dash” of California or West Coast style (aka, West Coast Prep), that could also really help a girl that wants to dress well but still wants to keep a sense of laid-back, Cali style. You can impress without trying too hard.
Getting it all Together
It’s not really all that tough to dress well, with simple style. The trick is to have a specific look, borrowed from your favorite movie star or inspired from magazines, make it feel real for you, and wear the hell out of it. It’s all about how YOU feel about it.
