Some people may think that clothes are just something to cover up your body, but actually, what you wear can affect how you feel. If you run out of the house wearing a worn t-shirt from the 70’s and baggy, stained sweat pants, then you may look the other way to avoid that person you know. However, if you are wearing an outfit that looks good on you and makes you feel put together, then you will be more confident and most likely welcome running into that someone.
Just as in when you are running out the door to do a few errands, it pays to take the time to choose the right outfit for an upcoming event. There is nothing worse than either being so uncomfortable that you can’t enjoy yourself or being over/under dressed. So, let’s learn how to get you to that happy middle! And after you finish this article, click here for additional info about how to make yourself feel good by looking good.
Summer is a time that people gather for all sorts of reasons. The good weather brings all sorts of invitations. When it says “backyard barbecue”, what do you wear that will take you from day to night? Since the afternoon will usually be hot, a tank top or light weight t-shirt will do the trick with a pair of cargo or chino shorts, and either flip flops or a slip-on canvas shoe. With this outfit, you will look good and be comfortable too. Don’t forget to bring a button-down casual shirt for when it cools off or the bugs come out.
Another gathering event that you need the right outfit for is the summer wedding. This is a little tricky in choosing the right clothes because you want to be appropriately dressed, but not melting in the heat or freezing the AC. If you need to wear a suit, choose a nicely tailored one that is made from a lightweight fabric like cotton or linen. Also, you can keep the look a little more summery with lighter colors and skipping the tie, opting for an open neckline.
Lastly, one event that you’ll want to look and feel fantastic for is that important date. The date itself can be nerve wracking enough without the fear of not having the right look. To make things easier, start with where you are going and decide whether it will be dressy or more casual. Then, choose clothes that you feel good in, are classic or a little more trendy, and make it look effortless. You want to feel great, look “put together”, but not like you are trying too hard.
