Fashion Dos and Don’ts

When it comes to fashion, there are a number of factors that come into play when trying to create the perfect look. Of course, we all know there is no universal “perfect” look, but you know what I mean: the perfect look for a given occasion. Because, at the end of the day, the application of the rules of fashion depends heavily on the context in which a given look will be worn. Therefore, you’ll need to take into careful consideration where you’ll be and what you’ll be doing with a given outfit as you’re assembling it so that you can create a truly perfect outfit for that context. Here are some factors to consider.

Where patterns are concerned, first and foremost, you have a variety of options, but, again, the “correct” choice will depend on context. For example, if you’re going to the beach, you’ll want a swimsuit, of course, but having some “street clothes” to wear over the swimsuit to and from the beach is also advised. For starters, the warm weather and the tropical setting call for warm colors to match, so think red, yellow, and orange, which also works wonders in Fall, fyi. Furthermore, you can incorporate these colors into a floral pattern to further accentuate the liveliness of Summer. This also works wonders in Spring. So, before you book your flight to the Bahamas with Booking.com, be sure to compose the perfect swimsuit and outerwear to match the occasion.

Another thing to consider is the type of clothing being worn. Again, this has a lot to do with weather. For example, wearing a sun dress in the snow is a big no no, obviously. Instead, the sun dress should be used for Spring and Summer, while Fall would require something heavier and with more coverage, and then Winter would require insulated clothing in layers for temperature control. We’ve covered warm weather fashion already, so let’s look at the cooler months. A good example of Fall fashion is to use the tried and true flannel shirt to evoke the image of scarecrows and farmers at harvest. Again, using warm colors evokes the changing colors of the leaves in Fall, and red in particular is a classic color for plaid and flannel.
