While looking through pictures of my grandmother I saw a picture of her going to a movie theater all dressed up.Back then going to the movies was a major event. She wore a pencil skirt, gloves, and her pearls.
I love athleisure, check out my previous article about it! But wouldn't it be nice to wear a dressy outfit just because? Elbow-length gloves and high heels while going downtown. I'm not talking about a skin tight dress but an outfit that flatters you and looks EXPENSIVE.
I don't know the right occasions to wear something like that. I go to concerts or to the beach. I went to a TedTalks one time but everyone there was professional casual .
An appropriate venue to get dressed up could be a broadway show or a gallery opening. But truthfully we don't have a lot of that happening here.
Tips on How to Dress-Up
Plan AheadTake into account what makes you feel confident and
the temperature. Planning outfits also saves time
A couple of bangles or hoop earring can really make an
outfit. I personally love necklaces and scarves
Get InvolvedJoining a professionals' group or even
a charity can help you network and give you
a chance to wear those stunning dresses
Go Out Once in a WhileI know it's hard to do but just go out to
a fancy place. Stop making excuses, and just go.
You help others by taking care of YOURSELF
Just Dress-UPIf you ran out of reasons to dress up, just
go for it. Chances are if you look really
good a photographer may spot you and post
your outfit in the next issue of Vogue!
