The main feature of the fashion ones are: the sole of the shoe, that is flat, and the fancy aspect. Besides its comfort, the sneaker offers a relaxed outfit, appropriated for going to work, to happy hour or even going out at night. I love it and use it a lot, even so I’m not a tall person, lol

5 wrong ways to dress yourself

One of most frequent doubts in the world of fashion, that I use to receive by e-mails, is about how to always be well-dressed for each occasion. Friends of mine use to say that I’m in style even when I am going to the bakery (lol)! Well, honestly, I’ve already been a mess in my look of the day, sometimes, to confess.

After all, it’s not our obligation of being completely well dressed all the time, it is? None of us need to be impeccable every our of our days. But there are some mistakes we do when we’re picking our look that can make us look badly dressed and we don’t even realise it. Check out my list and avoid doing it again!

If you have a party to go, for example, the first thing you need to get informed about is the dressing code. Try to ask the host about the type of the party or the occasion, if it is casual, black tie, etc. The next step is, obviously, get dressed according to the event.

Seems bullshit, but trying your look before the day you have the occasion is really important to avoid disasters. Sometimes the piece of garment you’re thinking about is dirty, crumpled, raggedy or it doesn’t fit you anymore. Sometimes it doesn’t fit in the rest of the look the way you thought. If you try before, you have time do think in a “plan B”, in case some of those problems happen. 

Don’t make the mistake of buying the same look of your friend or of the showcase. Those things usually don’t work simply because your friend’s taste – or the salesperson’s – won’t be the same as yours. The result is that probably you won’t feel like yourself when you get dressed, which is a huge frustration. Besides, to be in a party dressed just like someone else is not exactly cool – specially when this doesn’t happen as a coincidence. 

This is the main cause of the topic 3. When we don’t know our own style and don’t identify what we like in terms of dressing, we get lost in this topic in all occasions – even to go to the bakery. It feels like we are not representing ourselves with dignity, for the others. That’s why, firstly, you need to know yourself and discover your own style.

This is a topic I always emphasize in terms of dressing. The main secret for you not to be wrong dressed, for any occasion, is thinking in which message you want to transmit. If it’s a professional meeting, for an example, you probably want to transmit that you’re a responsible and serious person, so, you will get dressed according to this qualities. If it’s a date and you want to look funny, amusing and outgoing, you will get dressed based on this qualities as well. Is it’s a wedding and you’re the maid of honor: you’ll probably choose your garment based on looking elegant and important. That is the spirit. It’s not about judging by appearance; it’s about using your garments as a good first impression. This is not the essential of your personality and of who your are, but, it will tell something about you.
