The ease of lockout restrictions has brought sighs of relief, as the novel Coronavirus had many cooped up in their homes. Businesses are resuming their normal operations, which means it's time to rethink our wardrobes. For the time being, we'll say our goodbyes to our pyjamas and loungewear and replace them with maxi dresses, blazers, suits, jackets, jeans, skirts, and the like. However, if you've lost touch with your wardrobe, now could be the time to revamp it – not by shopping for new clothes but by layering your clothes. Besides, you save more and still look cool with this strategy.
Your Shape Needs That Dress More Than You Think
What factors do you consider when shopping for a new dress – body size, colour, material, cut, and design? These elements are essential, but guess what? Your body shape has a voice as well. Without this factor in place, your fashion statement will be nothing but a dying whisper. We all have body features we strongly cherish and those we don’t like.
When it comes to clothing women's dresses can accentuate these areas, leaving up with either a glammed-up or a hit-and-miss appearance. Not all dresses provide the best fit for a particular body type. But here are some that may match your physique.
Women with apple-shaped bodies have undefined waistlines and slender legs. These features give them well-rounded physiques. To resolve such visual imbalance, they can opt for outfits with low necklines, such as A-line dresses, and clothes that conceal the waist, alongside belts and sashes.
Women with pear shapes have smaller busts and wider hips, and, as such, need to get clothes that highlight the waist. A-line dresses are ideal outfits for this body shape. Those with large sleeves add more volume to the upper section.
Strawberry-shaped women have wide arms and shoulders, coupled with slender hips and legs. They can downplay their upper sections by selecting fitted, deep neckline tops and highlight their lower sections by wearing flared or fuller skirts with fluted hemlines. This style creates a visual balance.
Things You Should Consider When Shopping
Perhaps, your wardrobe needs overhauling and you are looking for some new dresses to revive your old collections. You may have a hard time finding the perfect fit if specific things are not in place, including comfort, environment, age, material, cut, and fabric quality for long-term use. While at the clothing store, consider lightweight clothes that you can rock with comfort and style, even in summer. Extremely cold weather favours heavy clothing.
If you are shopping for casual or formal clothing, your age becomes a crucial factor. It determines the design and colour scheme of the fabric. If older, wearing a dress intended for a younger person will give you a strange appearance. Girls' fashion styles are more vivid, while older women’s clothes come with subdued tones. Furthermore, some attires appear great at any generation. Nevertheless, finding a dress tailored to your age, body shape, size, season, and occasion, is a deal worth taking.
