Whether you are a fashion all-star who is looking for something a little different or you are simply a flower who is waiting to bloom, you need to know how to dress for every occasion. Dressing is a way of signaling who you are to the people around you, and if you want to make a great impression and have a great time, pay some attention to the details. Glasses and sunglasses can add flare and complete any look, no matter the occasion. Even if you have your day-to-day outfits put together, you will find that it’s important to consider what you want to wear for special occasions and what accessories you can add to make your look even better!
Art Show Fun
If you have been invited to an art show, this is a fantastic opportunity for you to go a little overboard. Art show crowds love things that are a little off the beaten path, so if you have any fascinating or exciting clothing, now is the time to wear it. For example, if you have a gorgeous red jacket, throw it on over an outfit in artistic black. A pair of stunning and attention grabbing frames such as the Sloan in rum cherry can really add a new level of depth to your look. The signature theory works here; match one outrageous piece with a whole set of neutrals to look fantastic. Art shows are also fantastic places for fun jewelry and for clunky impractical shoes.
If you are heading to the museum, be ready for a lot of walking and some seriously cold temperatures. This is a fantastic time to exercise your sensitive art student look. Choose a soft sweater and pair it with a short black skirt and some black leggings. Knee-high boots ensure that you’ll be able to look great even as you stay comfortable, and if you are a little worried about getting too cold, throw on a narrow scarf in soft mohair and add a pair of Sinclair frames in greystone to complete the look.
Of course, all of that refined clothing and taste goes right out of the window when you are heading to the county fair! For many people, the county fair is a place to cut loose and enjoy all of that lovely fried fair food, and when you are in a spot where the fair is coming to town, break out the denim! A cute denim skirt combined with well-fitted stretchy top is a great way to look good while keeping things feminine. For something a little extra sweet, throw on a pair of cowboy boots and add Tenley frames in burgundy fade for some down-home country action!
