Dress for Yourself

Formal with Flare

When it’s time to dress for more formal occasions it can be hard to find a dress that strikes the balance of classic but still exciting. Especially if you’re not walking down the red carpet or you’re going to an event with your boss.

My favorite type of formal dresses leaves something to the imagination but maintains a touch of sexiness. One of the best ways to do this is to contrast the top and bottom of an outfit by either going tight on the top or bottom but leaving the other section loose.

The dress pictured above shows how effective it can be. The skirt hugs her curves and shows off her waist. The top of the dress has a graceful draping that hints at her shape and bares a bit of shoulder to add a touch of suggestiveness. It’s the type of dress that your boyfriend and your grandmother would think you look great in!

Who Said Red Heads Can’t Wear Pink?

Growing up I always wanted red hair.  It was beautiful, fun and fiery. I thought it was a shame that my youngest brother was the red head and not me. However after a bad dye job in college, I grew to appreciate my brown hair and embrace my natural color.

One thing that you rarely hear when you have brown hair is that you shouldn’t wear certain colors but red heads hear it all the time. It’s one of those style cliques that seems to resonate and continue through the years.

I happen to disagree with this. I’m not encouraging red heads to run out and buy the first pink piece of clothing they see but rather to pick a shade that compliments their hair. Choose a pattern with pink in it or a soft tone that doesn’t clash. Rules are meant to be broken and there is always the exception to the rule.
