It’s Hard to Be Nice If YouDon’t Feel Comfortable

It’s Hard to Be Nice If YouDon’t Feel Comfortable

Formal dressing is notoriously labeled as uncomfortable attire. Just because you want to enhance your overall look doesn’t mean you have to feel uncomfortable or irritated with skin tight clothing. It has been proven medically that what you wear greatly affects your mood and is often a contributor to anxiety. So how can you not let your mood be swayed away with frustration and keep your cool in those special occasions so dear to you? Dress comfortable—not casual, nor overly formal—simply comfortable.

How to go about achieving that? Let’s see:

Ensure your attire is flattering

Pick out an outfit that was made especially to suit you. Dress what looks good to you and not to others. You need a “my life-my rules” attitude here. If you are self-conscious of your own look, believe us, you never feel comfortable. What you need to do is:

  1. Attend to your problem areas first. If you are short with stout legs, consider wearing comfortable heels or wedges to give the illusion of slimness. Choose the right cuts and styles to avoid looking plump.
  2. If you are sure you can carry it well, don a sleeveless dress. Also, if have colored eyes, choose dresses that compliment your gorgeous eye shade. It’s an art to draw attention to your most highlighted features and if you achieve that, BINGO!
  3. Color schemes should be chosen based on skin tones. Face the fact that not all colors will suit you. You either have cool skin tone or warm. Choosing the right shades will also play a role in enhancing your overall skin tone.

Avoid uncomfortable styles

 

It is better you avoid choosing uncomfortable styles if you are prone to feeling irritated mentally or physically quickly. Here’s what you need to be doing:

  1. Wear kitten heels if you aren’t accustomed to wearing high heels generally. Always remember to break your shoes in before wearing them for special occasions. Always try wearing them on and walking in them for some time before completely relying on them to carry you throughout the whole event.
  2. As for your hair, let them down if you feel they are going to stay that way for longer hours and will not bother you in conducting your affairs. Those bobby pins digging deep into your head may cause pain and even headache after some time, so why take the risk. There are a number of ways to keep your hair flying around in all places. Use straighteners, anti-frizz serums, hair sprays and gels to keep them tamed.
  3. Lastly, have your outfit perfectly tailored to fit you. If you feel uncomfortable wearing it, it will start showing on your face. Avoid tight or loose fitted dresses equally. Tight clothing tends to make you feel chubbier even if you aren’t.

The right accessories

 

Topping your overall attire with the right accessories can provide that extra boost you need to look elegant without being too uncomfortable. Here’s what you should aim for:

  1. Amplify your outfit with smart jewelry. A little bit of sparkly studs may completely transform your boring into much formal attire. If you want to attempt all lady-ish, choose a necklace and bracelet with gemstones studded earrings.
  2. Avoid complimenting any dress with heavy jewel pieces. Gaudy jewelry can ruin even the finest of dresses and not to forget they are severely uncomfortable. Aim for study and light.
  3. If you are not a jewel girl, consider covering your arms with a jacket or shawl and top it off with a small clutch with detachable straps.
