What to Wear When

Whether you’re dressing for work, a night on the town, or a casual family outing, deciding what to wear can be the most difficult part of the day and downright stressing.  When you’re searching through your closet for just the right thing, consider these ideas about what to wear as explained by fashion experts.  Here is some of their advice:

  • For the workplace

Dressing in the workplace has changed a great deal over time…in the past working in an office meant a much more formal attire, where in today’s business world the new business casual has become the norm.

Whether dressing casually or more formally, begin by choosing items of clothing that are well tailored and have a nice fit.

A nice business suit for men or a skirt and blazer for women is appropriate in a more formal office situation or when meeting with clients.

For more causal office attire you can dress down a bit by wearing a nice set of twill pants for men with a shirt and tie, and a fun skirt or pretty slacks and a blouse for women.

  • For a date

Choosing what to wear on a date can depend primarily on what activities your date has planned.  If you are going to a formal restaurant you would definitely want to wear formal attire, whereas going to beach you would dress much more casually.

The trick for dressing up or dressing down any outfit you choose for a date can be as simple as adding or taking away accessories.  For instance adding a pearl necklace to Levis and a t-shirt automatically makes it much dressier.

  • For a family outing

Just as when dressing for a date, when dressing for a family get together or outing a lot depends on where you are going and what activity you will be doing.

If you’re heading to the beach for the day, you definitely want loose fitting airy clothes that will allow free movement.  Be sure to wear or take that perfect swimsuit too.

  • To a wedding

Deciding what to wear to a wedding can be primarily interpreted from the wedding invitation itself.  In many invitations the dress is specifically mentioned, if it isn’t you can determine the dress by how formal or casual the invitation itself is.

So, whether you are trying to decide what to purchase to create your everyday work wardrobe, or you’re searching through your closet for the perfect outfit to wear on a first date, the most important thing to remember when choosing how to dress is to consider the event you will be participating in and dress accordingly.
