When it comes to any outfit that I put together I always make sure that it’s working for me, but when it comes to getting ‘dressed up’ I snap a photo first. If you take a photo it will show if the clothing is accentuating or exaggerating your flaws. A photo can reveal if the length is flattering, or if the color is too much for your skin. Make sure to try on various accessories to see how they work or don’t with your outfit. Remember accessories can make or break an outfit as its the icing on the cake.
I liked how this dress fell on by body. I added a long pearl necklace doubled up or could have gone with a simple pendant necklace.
If the skirt was a bit shorter this would have looked a bit more flattering, but too business looking for the event I was attending.
I tried to skip the jacket and go for a vest to show a little skin.
I put on a lace Ralph Lauren blouse that was pretty with the lace skirt. The shoes and necklace added a little more glam to the entire look.
The Burberry lace skirt came with this lace camisole but the top didn’t add any shape to my body. I decided to go with the first white outfit.
This process takes a lot of time, but you can see how creative you can get with just a few pieces. I like looking at how the clothes look on the camera as it gives me an idea of what other people see. Planning what your going to wear is key to looking your best. Don’t just stop at ‘buying the outfit’ but go all the way with experimenting with your shoes, handbags and jewelry.
