Who does not like rocking a look? A look that stands apart, that spells class. You might have a wardrobe spilling over with clothes but still you might mess up the look. This can be the case with many people. Because not everyone can manage to look effortlessly stylish. Often times, it is easy to achieve the look with basics. But there are some rules to follow for that. At the cost of sounding repetitive, these are the 10 golden rules to get dressed you need to follow:
Consider the occasion
Cardinal rule to follow when getting dressed. How can one not? It would be complete sacrilege to do otherwise. Like an outfit planner will tell you, each occasion demands something different. For example, you need a certain outfit for an office lunch, and a family get-together will demand something entirely different. Also a vacation will require a total overhaul of your wardrobe. Is there a wedding in the family? Or it is an awards ceremony you are getting dressed for? So, keep the occasion in mind when deciding your dress.
Go by weather
Another factor you must consider when you get dressed is the weather. In fact, a vital factor. This in conjunction with the occasion should be your guiding light. Because the exact same occasion will need a different outfit when the weather changes. Say you are going for a get-together with friends. Will you pick the sleeveless chiffon blouse in winter? No way, right? When it is freezing over, your instincts tell you what to wear. You do not need an outfit planner.
Put your comfort first
One very important thing to consider is yourself. Why would anyone overlook this factor? After all it is you who has to revel in the clothes you wear. Not everyone can put on a smiling countenance when the shoes are biting. This is a dress up advice that not every outfit planner dishes out. But it is of extreme importance. Imagine fidgeting away in a stunner of an outfit, just because you are not comfortable. Would that not rather defeat the purpose of fashion? Be wise, ladies. Accepting the fact that not everything is for everybody is very important. And just because a certain style is in vogue, you cannot carry it off if uncomfortable. The style, the fit, and your own mind have to be in sync to rock an outfit.
Dress according to body type
Everybody is different. And every BODY is different too. When you pick an outfit keeping this in mind, your looks get automatically transformed. For this you need to analyze your body type well. And once you have done that, it will be easier to pick the right clothes from your wardrobe. Consult Chicisimo for various suggestions. The beauty of the app lies in not having to physically try out clothes. The app will let you have a virtual preview. And you can then go ahead and choose what you feel looks best. The wonders of technology are endless. Why let it go waste?
Do not overmatch
Now, now girls! You may have the entire set of matching jewellery that goes together. Matched to a T. And you are kind of looking forward to flaunting it. Ask your outfit planner if it is a good idea. In most cases, you will hear otherwise. Surprised? Well that is how it works. Every item matching is not really good fashion. Lose the necklace and pick earrings and bracelets to match. Or if the necklace is a stunner, showcase it by going slow otherwise. Even if you have the ideal earrings screaming for attention.
Go slow on skin show
Remember too much of skin bodes ill. Choose wisely from your wardrobe. As an example, if you are opting for a mini skirt, make sure the top has a proper neckline. And if wearing a shirt and choosing to keep two buttons undone, go for regular trousers or jeans. A hint of skin can be alluring. And overdoing it can be disastrous at times.
Choose underwear well
Is your wardrobe well-stocked with underwear? If not consult an outfit planner right now. Because bad or improper underwear has the ability to ruin the best outfits. And different dresses require different types of support. So, make sure you get this aspect right. Chicisimo can offer good suggestions in this regard.
Wear the jacket right
Jackets are versatile items that compliment an outfit. One can wear jackets in any season, and for numbers of reasons. Get the look right with these. Whether you throw it lightly around your shoulders or button up is up to you.
One cannot over emphasize this at all. The right accessory can up the fashion ante like no other. Take a deep look into your wardrobe. Remember that accessory is a wide, wide term. It encompasses anything from jewellery to hats to handbags to scarves to brooches. And amplifies the fashion quotient up many notches. The trick lies in picking the right one. When you are getting dressed, seek advice from Chicisimo for suggestions.

Keep a spare
And here the last of the 10 golden rules to get dressed you need to follow. You never know when something goes wrong. A spillage maybe or a run in your stockings! A fashion disaster can happen at any time. It is true you cannot carry your entire wardrobe along. If something does go wrong, it helps if you happen to carry a spare. Some items are dispensable, others not. A run in your stockings, for example, can be dealt with by taking them off. But if you have a red wine spillage on your white blouse? Just imagining the scenario can give you the chills. It is a good idea to carry a spare blouse if possible. Otherwise, one can pray for the best always.
With these 10 golden rules to get dressed, you are sure to rule the fashion scene. Put your best foot forward and go ahead with confidence.
