It’s the start of a new year and you told yourself that this year will be different. You’ve made a list of goals and resolutions and one of them is to step up your game in the office (work). You’re going to get that promotion, reach your monthly goals and…dress for success.
Okay, great, you think. Let’s do it.
But does that mean you have to sacrifice one hour of sleep to try on outfits only to find yourself creating a pile of “no go’s” I mean a PILE that will stay there for the rest of the week… and still having NOTHING to wear and go back to your old slacks and sweater?
Ughh… sounds awful!
I totally get it! Cause the recurring question of what to wear to work? is pertinent for many of us women.
However, I have some good news for you.
Our creative fashion minds went to work and we pulled together five outfit ideas and tips you can start implementing this week and this year!
And I promise… it’s not as bad as you think.
Are you ready to get started? Let’s take some notes.
Christmas at our house is a multi-cultural celebration of Polish and Argentinean traditions, just as our wedding was more than 10 years ago. (Polish wedding tradition: Shaking a tree branch and catching apples for the number of children we’d have. Argentinean wedding tradition: LOTS of dancing in masks to carnival music with partying going on late into the night… I mean..morning.)
Recently I had a request from a friend to share tips and inspiration on how to wear belts with dresses.
I was thrilled because I designed my original belt collection for styling dresses. I was living in Buenos Aires, Argentina where women dress up for every-single-occasion. Yes, including to take out the trash. I’m not exaggerating… a neighbor might see them after all.
Summer days get pretty hot and sticky so a breezy light dress is the typical go-to for most women. And during cooler months, dresses are worn more for dressing up to parties, going out to dinner, museums or concerts.
But guess what… this dress is always adored with a belt.
As I was designing my one-size leather belt collection I was so inspired by the beautiful pulled together outfits all around me. And I was just imagining how women back at home, although usually very casual, would be excited to incorporate a little glam, or detailing into her outfit, especially to a dress.
A belt is that humble little accessory that completely changes a dress.
The best thing about wearing a belt with a dress, especially an ADA belt, is that it suits everyone. It adds feminine curves to an athletic shape, defines and accentuates an hourglass silhouette. It adds color and texture, breaks up prints, it pulls an outfit together and helps it look more polished.
And the versatility and one-size concept makes it easy to wear with your entire wardrobe…but today…we will focus on dresses.
Here are a few more questions I received that I felt were important to a “dress” at this time. 🙂
