Dresses shouldn’t be so dull. Women with good taste know how fun it is to throw on a simple dress and style it to look stunning but still not going overboard. Do you want to be one of those women? Then read along.
Why Wear Dresses?
It’s so easy to be late for any of your commitments because you opened your closet and found nothing new to wear. But if you have a dress hanging in your wardrobe somewhere – whatever type of dress it is, may it be the classic little black dress, a slip dress, or even a shirt dress, there is something you can do to glam it up.
So, get that dress on and consider doing these simple tips to achieve that new look!
Tips on How to Spice Up Your Dress Outfit
- Don a Hat
Hats are easy to wear. Put it over your head, and you’re done. However, it could be a little tricky to decide what kind of hat will go with what type of outfit. Luckily, dresses are easy to wear, too!
Maxi dresses look great next to a sun hat or a Panama. Is it the cold winter season? Perhaps something like a beanie paired with maje dresses you layered with a warm bomber jacket can help you rock that chic winter street style look.
- Wear It With a Matching Top
Over or under? It depends on what top you have in mind and the dress you want to wear with it.
A mini slip dress can look fantastic and more casual if you wear a plain shirt under it. White tees are recommended for dark-coloured dresses, while black will look lovely along with a light-coloured dress.
You can also throw on something like a cute, ruffled long-sleeved blouse on top of your dress, making it look like a skirt. If the top pattern of your dress is too beautiful to cover, then opt for an unbuttoned cardigan over it or a blazer for that powerful female boss vibe.
- Buckle Up With a Belt
If you have a stylish but straightforward belt you really like, go ahead and see if it matches your maje dresses. Wearing a belt adds up a little more sophistication to your otherwise plain-looking dress.
Belts also highlight the curves of your body, so you can wear them even with boxy dresses. Going to a formal party? A thin, simple belt can add a bit of extra flair to your formal dress.
- Layer It Over or Under Pants
You could opt for a skirt, if you please – but only on top of your dress, and only for dresses that are shorter than it.
Leggings and tights can be an excellent addition to your dress outfit during cold days. Wearing pants and tucking your dress inside also works as long as you tuck them right. This is the go-to solution if you feel like your tops have been overused, and you have a dress with such a pretty top pattern or neckline that hiding it will be doing the dress an injustice.
- Choose a Good Pair of Shoes to Go With It
Sneakers are the best way to downplay an otherwise very feminine dress. It’s all over the internet, and you can never go wrong with white sneakers.
However, you can also invite that sweet, feminine energy and go all-out girly with a nice pair of sandals to go with your dress. If you’re feeling edgier, get into your high heels and drape a blazer to any of your maje dresses. Sweet!
There are so many things you can do to add a bit of fun to your dresses. In fact, with the right eye for fashion, you can transform a drabby-looking dress altogether into the next, timeless piece your wardrobe can’t survive without.
