“One is never over- or underdressed with a little black dress.”
~Hello my Fashionistas! This is my quote for today! I love the chic look of a black dress. It flatters the body, and can go with any accessories! Black is one of the best colors to wear when you want to be daring.
~Maybe something that’s a bit off the shoulder if you want to show off your broad shoulders.
~Or, if you like to show off your legs, a nice slit on your leg, if your dress is longer than your knee.
~Also, if you like to show off your sides, a nice half cut of a circle on the side. Flaunt and show off your curves.
~Lastly, a little black dress is something someone can’t go wrong with!
~Here is something if you need to get the right shoes for long skirts and or dresses!
~ Longer skirts and dresses cover the majority of your body. To create a look that is flowing rather than broken or unbalanced, your footwear will need to accomplish one of the following three things:
1. Visually become a part of the skirt.
Think of tall boots that are covered by the hemline of the skirt
2. Add length or height beneath the hemline of the skirt, so that the skirt will seem shorter, or your legs will seem longer.
High heels that show a lot of skin work well for this.
3. Work with the lines of the skirt to create a look that is balanced.
For example, a chunky wedge heel will work with a fuller skirt, but might be too clunky for a long fitted skirt.
~Here are the tips on what shoes to wear with long skirts!
~ The wedge sandals and flared skirt shown here are a perfect combination, since the casual nature of the sandals are ideal matches for the denim skirt.
Shoe styles that can be problematic with long, flared skirts:
• Ballet flats. They can make your legs seem shorter and heavier.
• Heavy or bulky shoes, as they can often convert to very matronly or clunky look.
• Ankle boots that are short enough to still show some leg. This can make your calves look very thick.
~ Thong Sandals
~Thong sandals are used to give a full long skirt a laid-back, casual look that’s ideal for warm weather, beach vacations, or events that call for a great look that’s neither too casual nor too dressy.
~ Flats paired with long skirts can sometimes be a problematic combination, as they can make your legs appear shorter and heavier. But if your skirt is long and full, the shoes are skimpy, it’ll work.
~ There are some flats that will work with long skirts, but high heels are definitely an easier choice, especially when it comes to dressier skirts.
I hope this helps my Fashionistas!
