Buongiorno! My ladies, the freakin’ weekend will be taking over at approximately 5 pm. Are you ready?
I love going out as much as I did in college. Thankfully, my friends are in the same boat. The major conundrum when it comes to going out– aside from where to go– is what to wear. Am I right or am I right?
Dressing up in the winter can be a nightmare. As we all know, if it were sunny and warm out, I’d throw on a freakum dress and me on my merry way. I’m hoping you’re the same way.
During these tundra-like temps, I turn to denim to cover up my would-be bare legs. From there, I add layers and accessories until I achieve a look that’s streamlined and chic. At least I hope.
Here’s another part of the Get Ready Guide that I hope you enjoy! I promise to work on finding better lighting and background if you promise not to laugh at me. OK. You can laugh.
Tonight, I plan on rocking this respectable look:
This is how to do dressed-up denim. For denim, go dark and go for the right fit.
When you dress for a night out, the most important thing to understand is your body and what works on it. Loose-fitting tops, for example, look like maternity wear on me because I’m a bit busty. The flowy fabric is fitting through the bust, then poofs out around my tummy, which I don’t enjoy. Long, lean jeans with a waist that sits just below my belly button are most flattering because they don’t cut off my hips. Overall, I’m a Scorpio. I need structure in my clothes.
Normally, I choose one element to show off. That’s right, show off what you have! I tend to go for legs or cleavage. I’m just being honest. This, though, is form-fitting all around, so the addition of a heel is all it takes to amp it up. Punctuating with gold accessories makes the overall feeling a bit richer. I’ll be adding more bling tonight.
Because the streets are covered in powdery fluff also known as snow, sista needs another layer. I’m all about a great jacket.
This jacket is actually made of an almost sweatshirt material. Super cozy, super wearable. The zippers may be silver, but that’s why I have a watch that’s gold and silver.
To complete the look later tonight, I’ll release my hair from the tight bun and let the waves cascade down my back. Poetic.
Honestly, though, no matter what you wear, rock it out. Confidence (even the fake-it-till-you-make-it kind) is always the best accessory.
Ciao for now,
Question: What’s your favorite way to dress up denim?
Taking some pics of your ‘fit before you go out isn’t a bad idea, either! It helps you see what it really looks like.
