Time is running out ..?
No time left for shopping? Party is there and you have to fix your dressing with some party-basics in your wardrobe? Make it fun and play with texture and colour. Put on the basics you have: a beautiful pair of trousers? A skirt? And watch in the mirror what happens when you add something or leave it out. Maybe it is a good idea to have a friend help you find the perfect match? You may send me pictures to my email firstname.lastname@example.org and I would love to help you with some personal advise.
As you see, you may find that the same pants, combined with different tops, give totally different looks. Wearing the same colour for your trousers and top, give the look of a suit. Colour blocking gives more of a ‘shock’ to the outfit. Earrings may add a modern touch, or give you a traditional appearance.Either way:
What gives you the confidence, happiness and comfort you are looking for in the given situation?
Do you see the impact of small or wide legged trousers? The feminine skirt? The shoes with different shapes and textures? By just changing one aspect, you change the look. This way it becomes easy to dress appropriate in any occasion. For warm colour types: translate the same into your own colours and the same principles apply to you!
What to wear with your party outfit? Wrap yourself in a warm woolen shawl or a (fake) fur coat to be fashionable outside as well …
