Is head to toe black your "easy to get dressed without thinking about it" look?
In the 1990's all black became the uniform for an easy dressing option for many women.
In the Polyvore fashion set I created above, I selected items in different shades of brown but varying shades of any color would give the same effect.
Color is just one part of my decision making process. As in all the tips I share with you, I will use myself for the example today.
I like very much to wear soft flowing lines in a longer jacket or sweater. A simple cowl, oval or rounded V neck top works best with my round face and wavy hair. This neckline also gives my favorite necklaces a simple background. Another tip: When I wear a necklace, I wear very simple smaller earrings. If I wear a larger pair of earrings, I skip the necklace. Too much going on around your face is not flattering, especially since most of us wear glasses now. Speaking of glasses, a squarish frame in a softer gray or brown tone is much more flattering to my coloring and face shape.
Since the top half of my body is larger and longer than the lower half I like to wear slim leg pants and shoes with a bit of a heel or wedge. This helps to balance the halves of my body.
This is an example of a look that is easy and comfortable for me.
I hope this post inspires you to think about details such as the lines, the drape and the cut of the clothing you wear as well as the color. If you understand how all the elements come together to flatter you, getting dressed is so much easier. If the colors in your closet all truly flatter your own coloring it is amazing how they also work together. This makes getting dressed in the dark almost possible.
Thanks for joining me on this journey! I love hearing from you.
